3413756.jpgThe most refined iPhone design yet, the iPhone XS is available features a 5.8” OLED screen, with a powerful A12 processor and pin-sharp 428 pixels per inch screen density. The custom-built OLED panel provides industry leading colour accuracy, true blacks, and remarkable brightness and contrast. There’s a new level of water resistance too, with a highly durable glass screen to resist scratches.

Out with the old

The iPhone XS features a sumptuous 5.8” OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) Super Retina Display. To give an uninterrupted front display, Apple has done away with the Home button; technophobes need not worry, however – thanks to Face ID, it takes just a glance to unlock your phone or a gentle swipe up to access features.

Designed for living

iPhone XS is rated IP86 for water resistance, meaning it’s water resistant up to 2 metres for 30 minutes and is sealed with a precision-fitted surgical-grade stainless steel band. The glass covering the screen is also highly resistant to scratches, so you can just get on with using the device as intended.

Brilliant bionic

The A12 Bionic chip is a six-core CPU powerhouse, which gives you fantastic performance as well as energy efficiency. With Apple’s next-generation Neural Engine, it uses real-time machine learning to transform the way you use your apps. It’s up to 15% faster and 50% more energy efficient than the previous generation A11 chip. The 4 core GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is up to 50% faster than the A11 chip when using visually demanding apps, like games and video editing.

Fantastic photos

Thanks to its improved 12-megapixel, wide-angle and telephoto cameras and faster sensor, your iPhone XS is even better at shooting photos and videos. Using Apple’s Image Signal Processor and the A12 chip’s Neural Engine, it unlocks new creative possibilities. Features include Smart HDR, bringing more highlight and shadow details to your photos; Bokeh background blur for standout portrait shots, and all-new Depth Control to adjust the depth of field after the photo has been taken. Additionally, you can shoot 4K video up to 60 frames per second (fps) and 1080p slow motion up to 240fps.

iOS 12

Designed to make your iPhone experience faster and more responsive, iOS 12 makes it faster to do everyday tasks - for example, swiping to camera is up to 70% faster than previous iPhones, and the keyboard displays up to 50% faster than previous models. You can FaceTime with up to 32 people at once, with tiles that automatically expand as people talk. There are smarter ways to manage notifications and settings, intelligent shortcuts to pair your daily routine with the apps you use, and better privacy management when browsing the web. Thanks to iOS 12 and iCloud, you can connect your Apple products automatically and make your everyday tasks easier. For example, stream videos from your iPhone XS to your television via your Apple TV 4K; everything's synced, so all your devices have the latest information.

Mental money for this. Shows what having a current lower end new one such as the standard 11 has done to previous top model prices. Never used to get this percentage drop in a year on an iPhone. The £700 tier of new phone has annihilated previous models resale price.

I’d have to agree with you pal. Top comment.

I think taking into account resale prices now is a faux pas for some because they keep the phones for much longer. I for one used to upgrade every 2 years but now its 3-4 years. The advancement of phone tech has slowed down enough to not need a new phone so regularly (in my opinion). Also, makes upgrading way much more fun from a phone that is a few years old

I used to be annually when it worked out about £200 a year to upgrade due to previous models resale but I’m not losing 50% a year now. That’s crazy. Must be hard being Tim Cook with all his ethics then fleecing the world even when they’re already the richest company and have a silly amount of cash lying around. Would be so easy for them to drop prices and rely on revenue from their services instead which is where the most of the profits come from now anyway so would only increase if their market share went up through cheaper less obscene product prices.

That would finish off their brand of 'high end premium devices'. They don't want to sell for lower even if they can. Its like if Ralph lauren started selling their products for 1/3rd the price, the value of the brand would drop as it's more common. A lot of people buy Apple for the brand it portrays, most don't even use the phone to 1/2 it's capabilities lol.

I thought their profit still mostly came from iPhone.

I know that their services have a higher margin than their hardware but from what I saw last quarter hardware still beat services for profit.

I can see his point. If Ralph Lauren started making lots of money selling their customers special washing powder then they would be better to increase their customer base.

There is nothing luxury about an iPhone anymore anyway, not with all the old models being sold and the SE.

Been using iPhone for years and don’t think for one second about it being a luxury device. My top reasons are: (1) Most stable and high quality apps; (2) facetime; (3) Airplay; (4) integrates smoothly with other products I have in the ecosystem, such as air playing to Apple TV, or air dropping files to other devices like MacBook or iPad ; (5) Less cluttered messaging experience; (6) Can more easily support my folks if they run into problems and more intuitive / easy for them to use ... literally that’s it. Would happily migrate over to Android if I could airplay and FaceTime. Sounds dumb but stuff like that keeps you buying their devices. But I don’t feel any need to buy their top end flagship devices. Couldn’t give two hoots as long as the device works smoothly and as it should. I write this message on a 6s plus I bought 4+ years ago, and which has had its first bad software update on iOS 13 and first issues with the hardware (camera focus a bit off)

To be fair it was the same last year with the XR and the year before with the 8 (all be it with the older design).

Another issue being the pricing of the high end phones. £999 at launch and £525 for almost 18 month old tech sits about right for me. Though looking online XS 64GB seems to be sitting new at around £620. So this isn't a bad deal. Not worth double for the 11 Pro IMO.

The current 11 Pro has dropped around £200/250 in the used market for a phone that's been out 5 months. They drop big when the are priced so big.

But yes. The gap between the entry level and top tier is mad. £300 odd!!!

But ultimately still hold their value better than the android competitors.

It’s not premium just because you charge more. It has to be worth the money too. I’ve been a long time iPhone user and used to buy every year. I can afford the top spec top model if I valued it at that but I don’t. I always bought the top model top spec when they were up to £850 but it’s getting on for double that in a very short space of time. It’s wrong on so many levels.

The hardware on some of the android phones now is just as premium if not more at times. Yes iOS is far more compatible, better supported apps etc and much more user friendly but Apple are still taking the mick nowadays with their product prices. How they can charge £180 for an Apple TV 4K when a fire stick 4K is less than a third of the price I do not know
Seems a good deal, I have terrible signal in my house regardless of network can you use WiFi calling if I get a new separate sim only deal regardless of that sim supplier???

By premium I meant the aesthetic (the 'flex') more than the hardware lol. Much much cheaper phones outdo apple on hardware.

You can only use Wi-Fi calling if it is supported by the network provider. So a SIM from O2, Vodafone, BT, EE, Sky or Three works fine but not one from someone piggybacking their network.
This or wait till March for new one? Thanks
Are these grey imports?
