A comparison between iPhone XS and iPhone XS MAX could determine the better option.
Apple is undeniably the world richest tech company and arguably the most innovative company present, in the technology market today. The company launched their first Apple computer in 1976 and from then onwards have grown in popularity and market presence. From their first ever Apple computer back in 1976 to their new 2018 iPhone ‘XS’ models, which includes iPhone ‘XS’ MAX. The ‘iPhone XS’ and iPhone ‘XS’ MAX has large displays, faster face identification, is more water resistant (meaning you can drop your phone into 7 feet of water for 30 minutes and your phone is likely to survive it) and also a dual camera system.
Apple has achieved great success, as they consistently move forward. However, does the Apple iPhone ‘XS’ represent the future? Apple would argue that it does. Considering, that last year they described the iPhone ‘XS’ as the future of smartphones, due to its Face ID replacement of the finger sensor and edge-to-edge display. The iPhone ‘XS’ models are more high-end versions of the iPhone ‘X’. This includes the iPhone ‘XS’ MAX, iPhone XR which are all successor models of their predecessor the iPhone ‘X’. There have been several positive reviews for the new iPhone ‘XS’ and iPhone ‘XS’ MAX. However, some argue that there are some negatives.
