Read below to find out where to find helpful manuals and user guides for the newcomer iPhones.
Everything You Need To Know About iPhone XS
Design Of iPhone XS
From the first glance, iPhone XS is an obvious direct successor of iPhone X. The model’s body is made from two glass panels with a stainless steel frame between them. In comparison with iPhone X, the protective properties of the glass panels are enhanced. iPhone XS Max boasts of the largest screen in the history of Apple smartphones. It measures 6.5” and is surrounded by nearly non-existent edges. The smaller XS version has a 5.8” display.
The overall design of iPhone XS is highly similar to iPhone X, but the newcomer has three color options: gray, silver, and a completely new gold color. Apple has never used such a golden color for iPhones before. It’s more saturated and, thanks to the unique method of PVD coating, the gold iPhone body features a glossy effect. Regardless of the back panel color, the front side of both XS and XS Max is invariably black, while in all previous golden-colored smartphones, it was white.
Technical Specifications Of iPhone XS
The lightning-fast performance of iPhone XS is ensured by the Apple A12 Bionic processor, which is special in all senses. The chip is based on FinFET, the revolutionary 7-nanometer process that has never before been used in a mobile processor. Worth mentioning in this guide, iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X come with A11 Bionic, which is created by the less advanced 10-nm technology.
A12 Bionic guides six powerful cores. Two cores provide for performance, while the other four ensure energy efficiency. When the smartphone is running a heavy-duty game or app, the two performance cores chime in at full power. When iPhone XS is used for mundane tasks, only the energy-efficient cores are employed. This approach allows the smartphone to go on longer without the need for recharging. As compared to A11, the new A12 Bionic chip has a 50% lower energy consumption.
