Both the phones carry the same internals. The latest A12 Bionic chipset from Apple powers up both the phones. The company claims it to be the first 7nm chipset int he industry with a capability of 5 Trillion operations per second. The A12 ionic contains 6.9 Billion transistors, a six-core CPU, four-core GPU and an eight-core Neural engine to keep the phone running smoothly.
Both the phones sport a dual-rear camera setup with a 12MP wide-angle lens, equipped with an improved image stabilization sensor, accompanied by a 12MP telephoto lens that has a 2x optical zoom.
On the front, both the phones feature a true depth camera that supports the company’s famous FaceID facial recognition. Apple says that the camera comes with improved bokeh technology.
Concerning the battery, both come with an improved battery than their predecessor. Compared to iPhone X, the iPhone XS will last 30 minutes longer while the iPhone XS Max will last an hour and a half more.

iPhone XS will start at $999, and the XS Max will start with a price of $1099.
Apple fans rejoice! The rumors about the cheap iPhone model with lower specs were true. The iPhone XR comes with a 6.1-inch liquid retina display with an LCD panel.
It has got the same internals as its elder siblings in the 2018 line-up. A12 Bionic chipset, Face ID and all the other essentials, however, the major difference remains the rear camera. The XR has got a single 12MP rear camera instead of two.
Another difference is the absence of force touch in the iPhone XR, which detects how hard is the screen being pressed and comes up with options accordingly.
The XR is being made available in white, black, blue, coral and yellow. Apple is also making a Product Red version of its phone. All of the versions are made of an aluminum band with a glass rear.
