iPhone XS vs. iPhone X: A complete list of everything new in Apple’s next-gen iPhone
After a year of leaks and rumors followed by a week of pre-orders, Apple’s new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are finally here. Two-thirds of Apple’s 2018 iPhone lineup hits store shelves on Friday, and Apple fans around the world are giddy with anticipation. Millions upon millions of people will take delivery of a new iPhone this weekend. In fact, Apple will sell more next-generation iPhones over the course of a single weekend than most other current smartphone models will sell over the course of their lifespan. Some analysts think iPhone sales might climb as high as they were back in 2014 when Apple released the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
The iPhone XS Max certainly seems like the more eagerly anticipated new iPhone model this year, and it’s easy to see why. The iPhone XS Max can sort of be compared to the iPhone 6 Plus; the wait isn’t quite as long, but people have been clamoring for a device that looks like the iPhone X but has a significantly larger display. After all, the diagonal measurement on the iPhone X’s screen might be 5.8-inches, but the aspect ratio is so narrow that there’s actually less surface area on the iPhone X than there is on Apple’s Plus phones with a 5.5-inch screen.
