Combining an all-screen front panel with a conveniently compact design, the Apple iPhone XS is packed with industry-leading features. From its dazzling 5.8-inch OLED screen to the loudest speakers ever installed in an iPhone at its time of release, the XS is an audio-visual masterpiece that builds upon the already impressive performance and speed of its predecessor, the iPhone X.
Apple added a gold variant to its colour scheme with the release of the XS, which also comes in space grey and silver options, and its smart looks are backed up by a Neural Engine that contributes to a seamless, flowing user experience no matter what applications you are running.
The dual rear-facing 12-megapixel camera with its six-element lens comes along with a seven-megapixel TrueDepth selfie camera to keep even the most experienced photographers happy, and the Face ID technology on the XS are compatible with Apple Pay to help you make secure purchases with your phone.
iPhone XS Camera.
Apple constantly develops its camera technology to ensure each edition of the iPhone comes with enhancements in photography. The XS is no exception, and the images produced when shooting with the dual 12-megapixel rear-facing camera are wonderfully detailed with deep, rich colours.
Apple's Smart HDR functionality has revolutionised the quality of photographs taken in over-exposed conditions, regulating brightness and contrast to superb effect, while the background blur options on the XS's front-facing TrueDepth selfie camera – which features portrait lighting with five effects – allow you to dramatically enhance your profile pictures.
The video recording options on the iPhone XS are extensive, with 4K recording possible at 24, 30 or 60 frames-per-second. If 1080p HD video recording is your preference, you can shoot at 30 or 60fps, and there is also the option to shoot at 720p HD at 30fps, with extended dynamic range available on video recording up to 30fps.
iPhone XS Design.
The XS follows the design of the iPhone X in terms of layout and frame. You can still expect a super glossy glass back with a sturdy, shiny stainless-steel band that holds the panels together with style.
The Super Retina HD display is one of the most unique features of the iPhone XS, unless you happen to catch it face down - in which case Apple's new gold colourway might be the factor that turns your head.
iPhone XS Display.
The eye-popping colours produced by the iPhone XS display are carefully balanced thanks to the device's OLED technology. Each pixel in the display has its own light source and Apple's True Tone colour correction system takes advantage of this, delicately adjusting the white balance on your screen in accordance with the ambient light in the room or space where you are.
The end result is a vibrant display that is always kind on the eye, reproducing movies, TV shows, photographs and web pages in brilliant detail.
