After the great success of the iPhone X Apple announced new three smartphones-iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR. And we are expecting that there are also some improvements to the above 3 handsets comparing to the existing phone. Now let’s compare the iPhone Xs and iPhone X.
The new iPhone comes with an A12 Bionic chip against the A11 chip of iPhone X. So Apple believes that the iPhone XS will be around 30 percent faster than the iPhone X as a result. The new iPhone has water resistance up to 30 minutes of up to 2 meters. The screen size and screen resolutions are the same as both phones.
The operating system of Xs is upgraded to ios 11, iPhone X has ios 10. The storage variants come with 64GB, 256GB, 512GB, and the iPhone X has the storage 62GB, 256GB only. There is no micro SIM card for both phones.
The iPhone XS as slightly heavier with the weight of 177 grams. The iPhone Xs has two SIM slots. Both phones have the same 5.8 inches Super Retina HD display( there is no upgrade to the display), 12 MP rear camera and a 7 MP front camera( Apple has made a small upgrade to the camera sensor, making it slightly larger on the iPhone XS) and both iPhones also support Qi wireless charging. the iPhone XS’s battery will last 30 minutes longer in your day than the iPhone X, so there is a slightly better battery life compared to the iPhone X. Now let’s compare both variant features and price.

The key highlights of the new iPhones are that they all feature front and back glass design and an edge-to-edge display too. Comparing 2017 iPhone X Apple has now dropped physical Touch ID fingerprint scanner, as there is no new iPhone with the home button. In my view, that is a new move from iPhone models.
