Apple has launched its much awaited range of brand new iPhones in the form of iPhone Xs, Xs Max and XR.
We’ve got you covered in terms of the improvements that the American technology giant has in store for its latest batch of phones. Here are top 9 improvements you’ll immediately notice:
1. No lag on the world’s smartest, powerful and fastest processor
Apple’s A12 Bionic processor is the world’s first 7-nanometer chip and is as powerful as some of the best desktop CPUs out there in the market.
In fact, so powerful is the chipset that it is actually 40% more faster than its previous A11 Bionic processor which can be found in the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.
With its 8-core neural engine that’s 9 times faster than all of its other processors, the A12 can learn and process up to a whopping 5 trillion operations per-second!
2. Enhanced images, sharper videos
This brings us to the camera capabilities of the latest iPhones.
Thanks to its powerful A12 processor, these iPhones comes with a new image signal processor (ISP) that is capable of capturing more exposures in an extremely short time.
With the ISP, shutter lag issues are a thing of the past with the latest iPhones as they now are able to take pretty good images despite low lighting conditions at 12-megapixels.
While video enthusiasts would be pleased to note that recorded videos are much sharper than ever before, the most happiest would be selfie aficionados whose images can be taken at 7-megapixels thanks to the enhanced front cameras.
3. Face scanning is possible in extremely low light!
That’s not all though about the front cameras.
With Apple ditching the fingerprint sensor, Face ID is back and yes, you get to unlock your iPhone even in under extremely low light.
The secret is in the phones’ TrueDepth front camera which shoots 30,000 dots onto the user’s face. The dots are then analysed in the phone and the system knows when the user is close enough to activate the phones.
What’s even cooler is the ability to disable Face ID in the event your phone is about to be stolen. The new phones carry forward the improvement which was made on the iPhone X where users two side buttons to disable the feature. How cool is that?
4. An improved display that also won’t harm your eyes if you’re a heavy smartphone user
Despite screen size remaining at 5.8 inches from the previous iPhone X, the Xs will see 60% greater dynamic range. The best of its kind for an iPhone.
And that is not all. A study conducted at the Tsing-Hua University discovered that Apple’s latest OLED displays emit lesser blue light compared to previous models.
Essentially what this means is that if you’re a heavy smartphone user, this is these iPhones are a must if you don’t want to damage your eyes in the long run.
5. Faster internet connection for streaming videos and uploading photos
Ahh the internet. What’s the use of a smartphone if we’re not connected?
These latest iPhones come with an upgraded modem capable of supporting Gigabit LTE – touted to be the fastest internet connection for phones.
Streaming videos and uploading photos can be done at way, way faster speeds than ever before.
6. More storage space!
Now that we’re talking about photos and videos, the iPhone Xs and Xs Max come with storage space of up to 512GB.
That’s more than the previous models, which had maximum storage space of up to 256GB.
Though the phones do not come with MicroSD card slots, having more than half of a terabyte of space is certainly enough.
7. It’s more durable and water resistant
The iPhone Xs is rated IP68. In other words, you can go for a swim in a 6-feet deep pool and come out being able to still use the phone.
And there’s more! Say if you accidentally splashed coffee or beer over your phone, the latest iPhone models will still be functionable.
iPhone Xs and Xs Max are also able to withstand drops from 3-feet and 5-feet (which is almost the average height of a human being).
8. Your music sounds better
With iTunes offering over 40 million songs, 2.2 million apps, 25,000 TV shows, and 65,000 films, the latest iPhones are a must have.
The iPhone Xs comes with two built-in stereo speakers, providing you with a much wider stereo sound than the previous models.
If you’re someone who needs to kill time by listening to your favorite music or catching up with the latest television series, Apple’s latest models are your best friends.
9. The battery lasts longer. That’s a relief.
Battery life has been a chagrin for many iPhone users. The latest models provides greater user experience with much improved battery life.
The latest models of iPhones can last longer than their predecessors and if you’re running out of battery, there’s Fast Charge available. The iPhone Xs comes with a 2,658mAh battery, iPhone Xs Max with 3,174mAh and iPhone XR with 2,942mAh.
On average, all three phones clock up close to 10 hours of battery life when heavily used.
