IPhone XS debut wins some positive early Wall Street reviews

Apple’s new iPhone XR XS and XS Max Apple’s new iPhone XR XS and XS Max

In a comparison of the three models, the iPhone Xs Max contains a 6.5 inch display, the iPhone Xs has a 5.8 inch display, and the iPhone Xr has a 6.1 inch display. While the iPhone may be the most popular smartphone on the market, many customers are unhappy with the choices Apple has made recently.

Less than a week since release, reports are already coming in that the iPhone XS and XS Max are not all they're cracked up to be.

Depending on which part of the world you live in, the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Plus (and soon the iPhone XR) either have a tray that can take dual SIM cards or work have a tray that takes one nano SIM card like previous iPhones and have one built-in eSIM. It is also believed that Apple is, in fact, trying to tackle a global smartphone industry slowdown through its policy of raising iPhone prices, offering new digital services and maximising profits from each component.

'However, as with the iPhone X, our tests show the all-glass design of the iPhone XS and XS Max make them highly susceptible to cracking, particularly from drops, the most common cause of damage'.

In a tumble test, where both phones were placed in a rotating metal box for 60 seconds, both the XS and XS Max suffered serious shattering, breakage, and chipping on their front and back. That's because the latest update for the YouTube iOS app has enabled HDR video support for Apple's flagship duo.

The total cost of an iPhone Max model came in at £336, according to one of those weird analyst firms which specialise in ripping phones to bits.

Other costs that increased were the phone's processor and modem chips, primarily because the chips used newer chip-making techniques from Intel Corp and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd to boost their performance while taking up the same space.

Another ex-Liverpool forward, Ian Rush , also revealed his delight on social media and was pleased with the draw. Liverpool are still unbeaten in the Premier League this season.


The analyst also noted that the cheapest of the lot - iPhone XR - will be a hot seller, with more customers upgrading to that model than what the iPhone 8 series a year ago.

AppleCare+ should be considered your last line of defense, so get some extra protection to ensure you don't have to pay for repairs at all.

To be clear, some cases may have been updated by the manufacturer for the iPhone XS.

Cook thinks Facebook's Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal is so big that it warrants "well-crafted regulation".

A slight notch above the iPhone X.
