The 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.

What is augmented reality?
AR can cleverly merge information and digital objects with the environment around you, directly onto your phone screen. (If you’ve ever played or seen Pokémon Go, you have experienced AR already.) When looking at your phone screen, this ingenious technology enables you to see (for example) handy navigation arrows on a street – aiding you towards a set location or you could view and then shoot virtual aliens as they invade your living room.

iOS12 is compatible with ARKit 2, unlocking more immersive AR experiences for app developers. AR objects can now be sent with Messages and Mail and viewed in the real world, while a new AR app called Measure helps you measure real-world objects just by pointing your camera at them

Though I would probably go for an 11, there are many that actually find this to be a better phone. It has a better screen, albeit a bit small, and is made with more premium materials. This is also cheaper than the iPhone 11, unless there are deals I’m not aware of.

Tempting, but the lack of FM radio is a serious letdown.



Someone is still using FM radio on the phones nowadays?

I'd buy it over the 11 any day, but I wouldn't pay this much for either handset - especially not with the used prices these days.

I think it's their long-term price for the XS (and the XR too). Certainly been at 629 since Christmas as I keep dithering over whether to replace my 7!
Build quality superior to the 11

Dont @ me
I'm holding off until the rumoured 'cheap' iPhone is released. I'll either buy that one or an iPhone 11 or iPhone XS depending on prices.

I don't mind having a finger print sensor. Main things I want from an upgrade is an improved camera.

Yes, but I think that's in Home section only, not Tech/Electronics.

There's apps that have pretty much every radio station from the world. No iPhone has had FM radio from what I can recall.

The small screen is exactly why id take this over the 11
£628 for the 256gb version from wowcamera if you don't mind an import with 2 pin plug (supplied with adaptor).
The 64gb version is £525 too.

I’ve got the 11 for the work, heavier, bezel looks dated. Overall this phone looks and feels more premium. So I’d buy/bought this over the 11.
Take a look on eBay for sealed/new units, can get them for under £500.

That’s exactly my point. It’s too much for an old phone, especially when you factor in that the 11 (I’ve got the Xs max and prefer it to the 11) is probably less than a hundred more.

You are. The problem is that this deal is too expensive for that phone.

For pretty much the same price? The issue is with the price not the phone, though I’m in agreement as I prefer to stick to my Xs max as I think aesthetically it’s more closer to apples ethos. Steve jobs will be turning in his grave with the state of the 11 and the 11pro
callmeleroy09/02/2020 16:25

I’d say it’s about 2/300 too much, that’s the problem. This ‘deal’ is too expensive, especially when the 11 just came out recently and is probably 1/200 more
I appreciate the deal has passed already but that O2 iphone XR deal just before Christmas was nearly half the price of this. Agree this is a better phone than the 11, still a lot of money though.
Same price at Very but with 12 months interest free

I’m just saying you should compare like-for-like, if this was a deal for the Iphone XR then I’d agree with you

The Xs is still a better phone than the iphone 11, despite being released the year before

Keep hearing how battery is much better on XR and 11 but XS is more premium looking. So how does battery compare on XS?
