IPhone Xs and Xs Max hands-on: The new normal

That is, in everything except the names. Front the front, though, you could easily mistake its 6.1-inch panel for an iPhone XS. Hindustan Times delivers the news across all social media platforms, on the web, and at your doorstep.

Both the iPhone XS and XS Max are styled similarly to the iPhone X with an edge-to-edge display and glass back.

The XS and XS Max both have better stereo speakers with Apple boasting a wider sound profile.

As a result, many have pointed out that it sounds much like "excess" and 'excess Max'.

It wasn't mentioned in Apple's presentation but the Apple store listings confirm the free accessories bundled with the new iPhones - and there's no sign of the 3.5mm to Lightning headphone adapter. The company is no longer selling the iPhone X, 6S, 6S Plus or SE models through its official website in the US. While its removal can be seen as penny pinching (and with Apple you never know), the actual use that adapter got is of suspect, considering most people just use the bundled EarPods or possibly get the AirPods.

"Did they really name the new iPhone the 'excess"?' XS?

Others found the company's lack of creativity to be a bigger issue, with many simply calling the new names "dumb" and 'lazy'.

"While it's now the cheapest new iPhone of the lot, the iPhone XR gets a large 6.1" edge to edge display that uses IPS instead of OLED.

The Green Bay Packers accomplished something Sunday night that had never been done before in the long history of the franchise. At that point, the Packers were losing by 17 points and Aaron miraculously came back into the game after halftime.

Apple just announced that its lower-cost iPhone is officially known as the iPhone XR.

The iPhone XR also sports the same Face ID tech as the iPhone XS.

The "budget" answer to Apple's top-of-the-range iPhone XS and XS Max, the iPhone XR - will start at a cool $749 (£749), and comes in three different storage sizes: 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are going to be available unlocked from Apple, which means you won't have to tie yourself to any carrier when preordering the phone. The XS Max also has a 458 pixels per inch Super Retina display measuring 6.5-inches, with a resolution of 2,688 x 1,242. The iPhone XR comes with a 12 MP, single rear camera. It's the first time Apple has offered a 512GB phone.

Alongside the flagship XS Max and smaller XS, Apple also announced the iPhone XR.

Apple's new iPhones Xs are being powered by a new generation of chips dubbed the A12 Bionic, which includes a 6-core CPU, a 4-core GPU and a dedicated neural engine. Consumer demand for the iPhone has lagged, but the more expensive iPhone X helped drive a 20 percent increase in revenue generated by the smartphone lineup last quarter. The phone will be available in three color options: silver, gold and space gray.

In any case, the new products have garnered a lot of excitement. It has all that we have grown accustomed to with the iPhones but in a bigger and better avatar. And it has the same A12 Bionic processor inside, so will support all the same new features. Fortunately, except for an additional sensor, iPhone XR retains all of the software and hardware features like optical image stabilisation and 4K video recording at 24 fps, 30 fps or 60 fps.
