iPhone XS Max review: Apple’s supersized smartphone

Its massive screen is beautiful, but has it lost some of the charms that made the iPhone X so good? Apple’s top of the line smartphone has been supersized in both screen size and price, but is the iPhone XS Max really worth the eye-watering £1,099-plus asking price? Last year’s iPhone X was a massive leap forward in design for Apple after years of resting on its laurels. This year the iPhone XS Max is essential that winning design…

iPhone users say iOS 12 update has ‘ruined’ their screen with ‘washed out’ colours

The latest iPhone software update is playing havoc with some user’s screens, apparently… A MYSTERIOUS bug is “ruining” iPhone screens, according to baffled Apple customers. Owners of Apple’s premium smartphone say that the latest iOS 12 software update has “washed out” the colors on the display. It seems like the iPhone X – released last year for £999 – is the only handset affected. A Reddit thread about the issue has received dozens of comments and hundreds of “upvotes”, or likes….

iPhone XS Max crushes XS in early sales, Apple analyst says

Demand for the larger iPhone is “better than expected,” according to Ming-Chi Kuo. The iPhone XS Max is outselling the smaller XS by three to four times, an analyst says, and the 256GB storage option is proving the most popular.

iPhone XS and XS Max review: Apple’s latest are the best yet. But do you need them?

Each year, Apple CEO Tim Cook calls the next-generation iPhones the best ever made. The company’s 2018 lineup, specifically the iPhone XS and XS Max, delivers on that promise: They’re the smartest, fastest, best iPhones we’ve seen to date. But at this point, buying an updated iPhone is like getting a new Ferrari — you’ll find a faster engine, a new coat of paint, and a few new bells and whistles, but beneath all that it’s…

Apple iPhone XS, XS Max and XR battery capacities revealed

As always, Apple failed to mention some of the important specs of its new phones, including the battery capacity. But the Chinese regulatory TENAA has stepped up and filled us in. The listings reveal that the iPhone XS features a slightly smaller battery than its direct predecessor, the iPhone X (2,658 mAh vs. 2,716 mAh) and secondly, the iPhone XS Max has the biggest cell (3.174 mAh) ever to be integrated into an iPhone.

iPhone XS and XS Max review: Apple’s beautiful big-screen beasts exact a small ransom

The radical changes came with the iPhone X last year. So, while the elegant new iPhone XS Max that I’ve been testing since Wednesday (along with the XS) has, by far, the largest display and is the most expensive and best iPhone ever, Apple’s latest handsets, good as they are, don’t move the needle all that much. The cameras are superb, but they were excellent before. The robust A12 Bionic processor inside means the handsets are…

iPhone XS vs. Note 9: What a $1,000 phone buys you ??

Only one of these titans brings you the best value for money — we puzzle it through. The $1,000 phone may not be as shocking this year as it was when Apple first broke the barrier with 2017’s iPhone X, but the amount you’re asked to cough up for a premium handset is hardly chump change. The newly announced iPhone XS and August’s Galaxy Note 9 both start at a grand, and the higher-storage models go up from there. (See the…
