Apple’s most powerful iPhones are finally here including the huge iPhone XS Max that is the biggest phone in terms of size, the company has ever made. Besides being the most powerful, the iPhone XS duo is the priciest from Apple till now.
A much cheaper iPhone XR was also launched at the event, and while both the XS and XR have some trade-offs, the phones contain some of the best features that were not seen on the phone until now. Here is a roundup of the best features of iPhone XS Max.
Bold and Big Display
The iPhone XS Max supports a huge 6.5-inch display which is an inch bigger than the 5.5-inch display of iPhone 8 Plus but retains such a huge screen in the same size as the 8 Plus, thanks to the edge-to-edge design. It’s a 2688 x 1242 resolution OLED display featuring a pixel density of 458 ppi.
This results in a brighter, more color accurate display that supports HDR10, and iOS system-wide color management for color accuracy. In addition to this, it offers 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio and displays 60% greater dynamic range in HDR photos.
One of the best justifications of buying the pricey iPhone XS Max is its outrageous dual camera setup which takes full advantage of the Apple’s A12 Bionic chip and the software.
The camera is now equipped with Smart HDR, that captures different photos with different settings and tweaks and then stitches them together to get a better image. The other ability is to manually adjust the focus of the picture after it is being captured. The phone also performs better in low light.
iPhone XS Max has subtle upgrades that may not be very noticeable but prove to valuable editions. The most prominent may be the 512GB storage, dual sim support, and stereo sound. But what truly separates the XS Max from the current iPhone X is the IP68 water and dust resistance.
This means you can submerge your phone in 7 feet of water for 30 minutes which is almost twice the depth that IP 67 rating allows. So the next time you accidentally drop your phone into a swimming pool, you probably won’t have to replace your device.
6-Core Chip with 8-Core Neural Engine
iPhone Xs Max is powered by the new A12 Bionic chip which is the first ever in the industry to be manufactured using the 7nm process. It has a 6-core CPU with Fusion architecture consisting of 2 high-performance cores and four efficiency cores where all the cores of the CPU are capable of running at once to give you the maximum output so that your device never slows down.
A 4-core GPU accompanies the Bionic and is 50% faster than the A11. An 8-core Neural Engine with support for Dedicated Machine Learning and Smart Compute System is also under the hood. All this superb hardware works cohesively to perform 5 Trillion operations per second.
