Apple iPhone XS Max - Hands On

iPhone Xs and iPhone XR Can Read NFC Tags in Background

The new Apple Watch Series 4, starting at $399, is $70 more expensive than the previous Series 3 version, and the LTE version will run you an extra $100 if you're into paying the premium (along with a data connection) for your wearable.

This is the new iPhone for "regular folks" who don't see their iPhone as a status symbol or sweat details like a stainless steel body or 512GB of storage for photos and videos. Being part of an "S" upgrade cycle, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max borrow the design language from last year's iPhone X and get slightly bumped up internals, cameras, and a new Gold colour option.

Unlike prior iPhone models, Apple's new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will feature identical dual-lens camera systems, with 12 megapixel wide-angle and 12 megapixel telephoto cameras, and an improved True Tone flash that will offer advanced flicker detection. Moreover, Apple locally assembles iPhone SE and iPhone 6S models in India. You can't zoom in as much, though, and you have fewer portrait lighting effects.

Courtesy of the A12 Bionic ISP, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will also now allow users to edit depth-of-field effects after a photo has already been taken, with a new Depth slider in the Photos app that will allow for the f-stop to be adjusted dynamically.

Apple iPhone X Apple's iPhone X now starts at Rs 91,900 for the base model with 64GB.

Battery life: We can't say for sure until we test all three new iPhones, but the iPhone XR might have longer battery life than the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

Apple on Wednesday confirmed that all the three new iPhones it just unveiled will be powered by the same monster mobile processor, the A12 Bionic that happens to be the world's first commercial 7nm chip. Build it, and they will come: and pay for it too. The iPhone 7 now starts at £449/$449, and the 7 Plus at £569/$569.
