Description

The iPhone XS Max is like a supersized version of the iPhone XS, featuring a bigger, 6.5-inch OLED display and longer battery life. It also has the same, 7nm A12 Bionic chipset with more power and greater efficiency than the A11. The new, 12MP dual camera has a bigger sensor and larger pixels for better image clarity, while advanced software and a new signal processor enable better HDR capturing and Portrait photos with adjustable amount of bokeh. The iPhone XS offers Face ID, louder stereo speakers, and better, IP68 water resistance.
