Apple iPhone XS & XS Max Out Now: Price & Specs

Apple's iPhone XS and XS Max, packing Super Retina Displays and 7nm processors, are available to buy now. Here's everything you need to know about the new iPhones for 2018, including release date, price and specs.

The successors to iPhone 8 and 8 Plus have been officially confirmed as iPhone XS and XS Max, and they are available to buy now. Clad in surgical-grade stainless steel, they adopt the all-screen notch design introduced with last year's iPhone X, and will be available in gold, silver and space grey.


They sound great, but we reckon it's the cheaper iPhone Xr everyone will want.

The new phones squeeze larger screens into similar size bodies as their predecessors, now packing the biggest screens found on any iPhone to date. But the 5.8- and 6.5in screens are not just a lot bigger, but also infinitely better.

Marketed as 'Super Retina Displays', these are OLED panels with super-high resolutions (2.7m pixels XS; 3.3m pixels XS Max) and crystal-clear 458ppi density. They have 60 percent higher dynamic range than the iPhone X, 1m:1 contrast ratio, HDR10, Dolby Vision, 120Hz touch sensing and 3D Touch.
The new iPhones are also protected with the most durable glass used in any smartphone, and now support IP68 waterproofing, able to endure up to 2m of water for up to 30 minutes.


Nicely complementing the redesigned screen for multimedia and gaming is the implementation of improved stereo speakers for wider stereo sound.

As expected performance has also seen a bump, but it's more of a push than a bump. The A12 Bionic SOC is, according to Apple, the world's first 7nm chip (we'll just forget about Huawei's latest Kirin chip then). It is faster and more powerful than any of the competition, says the company.

The SOC builds in 6.9 billion transistors, and as before comprises a CPU, GPU and neural engine. Each of these components has been enhanced, with the two-performance cores of the six-core CPU running 15 percent faster and 40 percent more efficient than in the A11, the quad-core GPU an amazing 50 percent faster than in the A11, and the octa-core neural engine now able to process 5 trillion operations per second (up from 600 billion).

Cameras have also been upgraded, with the iPhone XS fitted with a dual-camera at the rear that has two 12Mp lenses and dual optical image stabilisation. The wide-angle camera has a six-element lens, 1.4um pixels and an f/1.8 aperture. There's also a telephoto camera with f/2.4 aperture and 2x optical zoom, and an improved True Tone flash.

Round at the front there's a 7Mp selfie camera, with a faster sensor and f/2.2 aperture, an IR camera and dot projector. 

Battery life has improved too, and the iPhone XS lasts 30 minutes longer than the iPhone X, while the XS Max can last a whole hour and a half longer.

Nokia 4.2 Review

At £150, Nokia's budget handset has to be compared to the very best cheap phones. How does it stack up?
Should I Buy The Nokia 4.2?
The 4.2 has shown that Nokia can still produce good hardware, and combined with the slick user interface on Android One it provides an enjoyable user experience. This fully featured modern handset produces consistently solid performance, with above average cameras and impressive battery life. 
However, it is let down by a low resolution screen, poor implementation of biometrics and some stubborn design choices.

Apple MacBook Pro 15in (2019) Review

The 2019 version of the 15in MacBook Pro brings more powerful Intel processors - including a 9th generation 8-core option, but it may still suffer from keyboard issues (which Apple will fix for free). Here's our full review.
Should I buy the 15in MacBook Pro (2019)?
You’ll need to weigh up how much you need an incredibly powerful Mac laptop with concerns about the keyboard, but the new 9th generation 8-core processors should sweeten the deal.
