Over the past month, the brand Apple has released three new iphones, the XS, XS Max, and the XR. These three new phones will make Apple’s 18th, 19th, and 20th IPhones with the first one being released on June 29, 2007. The new iphone XS, XS Max have started shipping this year on September 21, 2018, while the XR can be pre ordered starting October 19 and Apple will start shipping them out only 7 days later on October 26.

These iphones like many other Apple products are quite pricey. The Iphone XS Max can be anywhere from $1,099 to $1,499 and the Iphone XS anywhere from $999 to $1,349. The Iphone XR is a little bit cheaper than the others, but is still at a high price of $749 to $899. The Iphone XS and XS Max come in three different colors, silver, space grey, and gold. The iphone XR comes in a variety of colors such as white, black, blue, yellow, coral, and red. When you order any version of these new Iphones, you will also get a pair of Apple earbuds with the lightning connector, a charging cable, and a USB power adapter. The Iphone XS is the smallest out of the three with a display screen of 5.8 inches. Next comes the Iphone XR in the middle size of 6.1 inches, and in last place is the XS Max which has a display screen of 6.5 inches.

Many reviewers of the new XS and XS Max have said that they are basically the same Iphone, just one having a bigger screen than the other. Compared to Apple’s Iphone 6 plus and 6s plus where the 6s plus has better camera quality and better battery percentage, there is no clear difference between the new XS and XS Max. Apple has added some new advancements to the new iphones. One of the new advantages is the glass that is on the front and back is much stronger so if you drop it, it will not crack as easily as the Iphone 8 and X would. Another new added feature is that the new iphones rated IP68 which means they are dust resistant and can withstand being in water as deep as seven feet, and can be in there for up to 30 minutes.
