iPhone XS and XS Max review

  • Published on:  9/18/2018
  • Apple's new iPhone XS and XS Max are familiar territory with two key updates: a faster processor and an upgraded camera. Oh, and the XS Max has the largest screen ever found on an iPhone. But is that enough to justify the very high cost of the best iPhones you can buy?

    Correction: Nilay misspoke! The iPhone XS Max has a 6.5-inch display, not 6.8. The XS has a 5.8, and the XR has a 6.1.

    You truly know that Apple needs to step up their game next year when even The Verge and EverythingApplePro is underwhelmed with these new phones.

    We've reached 'peak' Apple.... nothing satisfies now. I'm still on the iPhone 6 Plus and will be until Apple comes out with something impressive enough to justify the price. This hasn't been th case for me for the last 4 years.

  • Lil Robbie (Dec 25, 2018)

    Mark O'Cain same here

  • Azam Afzal (Sep 19, 2018)

    Hmm decisions decisions... 🤔Na I'll stick with my IPhone 6s for now as it really does everything I need it to do.

  • Tony True (Feb 1, 2019)

    Also have 6s plus, but I’m waiting for next year iPhone. The rumors look promising, plus since apple has a hard time selling the Xs it means they’re probably gonna try harder next year
