5 Things You Need to Know the New iPhone XS

 5 Things You Need to Know the New iPhone XS

Apple debuted it’s new iteration of the iPhone last week, the iPhone XS. Here are 5 things you should know about what was revealed about the new model.

There are over 700 million iPhones in use as of 2017, and that number continues to grow every time Apple releases a new iPhone.

This year, the new release is the iPhone XS, which is an upgraded version of the iPhone X that was released last year.

With this fresh generation of smartphone, you’ll find several exciting features that may convince you to invest in the newest iPhone.

Here are 5 things you need to know about the iPhone XS that’ll help you make an educated consumer decision.

1. Tons of Storage

iPhones have been getting increasingly higher storage capacity every year, and it’s not slowing down with the iPhone XS. The regular iPhone XS has a minimum of 64GB, followed by 256GB and a staggering 512GB.

The higher storage capacity may be necessary for people who love taking pictures and videos on their iPhone. The higher quality camera means photos and videos will take up more space than ones on previous generations.

2. More Battery Life

One of the biggest problems iPhone consumers face is the deterioration of the battery life in their smartphone. Over the span of a couple of years, your iPhone could go from lasting you two days without charge to needing a new charge every couple of hours.

The new iPhone XS has improved battery allowing people to use their smartphone even longer without needing to charge it. The phone will apparently give an extra 90 minutes of battery life compared to older versions.

3. Similar Layout to the iPhone X

If you’re wondering what the new iPhone XS will look like, it’s the same design as the iPhone X. This means you won’t have the classic home button, the screen will expand to the top of the phone, and there won’t be a headphone jack.

The iPhone XS won’t even come with a headphone converter, meaning you’ll either need to switch to Bluetooth headphones or purchase your own converter.

The size of the iPhone XS is different than the iPhone 7 and 8, so you’ll need to purchase new iPhone XS cases to protect it from damage.

4. Improved Cameras

The camera quality on iPhones continues to get better, making it easier to take professional-looking photos with your smartphone.

The iPhone XS has an upgraded 12-megapixel wide angle. It also comes with a new image signal processor in the A12 bionic lens that goes along with the upgrade neural engine.

Basically, all of your friends will ask you to take pictures because your camera will produce incredibly crisp and clear photos.

5. Pricing

As the quality of the iPhone continues to rise, so do the prices. The cheapest iPhone XS comes in at $999 and the most expensive, 512GB phone will cost you a staggering $1,399.

To Buy or Not to Buy

While the new features of the iPhone XS are definitely impressive, they may not be worth it to people for the staggering prices. If you can afford to make the investment, then by all means, go for it! But otherwise, you may want to look into used iPhones or some of the older generations instead.
