Apple unveiled the iPhone X successor this week — the iPhone XS. As an iPhone X owner, I was a bit underwhelmed by the iPhone XS. While Apple’s latest smartphone sports hardware upgrades are quite impressive, I couldn’t see any reason for me to shell out money for the “S” model.
According to Forbes, Apple made minor tweaks to the iPhone X that resulted in the XS model. For instance, the iPhone XS still has the same 5.8-inch 19:5:9 True Tone OLED screen featuring 2436 x1125 pixels. There were other small changes to deliver better or faster performance, too, like a wider stereo sound and a more rapid touch response. These performance tweaks, however, weren’t as impressive as the new hardware Apple fitted to the iPhone XS.
The iPhone X’s A11 Bionic with Neural Engine are revolutionary and made big waves in the smartphone industry. The Cupertino-based company pushed further this year with the A12 Bionic, a 7-nanometer chip.
