Apple iPhone Xs Specification, Features, Price and Release Date

Apple iPhone Xs Features

The Apple iPhone Xs is a proper S-model, as it is built on the hardware and features from last year without changing too much. Which means looking at the overall design, little has changed. But as they say, the beauty is on the inside. The base storage option of the iPhone Xs is 64GB, there is a 256GB version, and a larger 512GB storage version.

The Apple iPhone Xs should be the first iPhone to hit the market with a 7nm chipset. The chipset features a 6 core design (2 big + 4 small), plus a 4-core GPU and a new 8-core neural engine, which add up to a whopping 6.9 billion transistors. All Apple-designed.


The 5.8 inch screen of the Apple iPhone Xs has the same resolution as last year’s model – 1125 x 2436 pixels. Its pixel density matches the max model, same for the touch frame rate (120Hz). Apple also improved the stereo speakers to deliver wider sound.

The two iPhone Xs models are looking cute when it comes to colour options. The smaller Apple iPhone Xs does gain the Gold and paint job, which you won’t find on the iPhone X. The other twp; Silver and Space Gray, are standard. There is no Red colour option yet.


Apple has introduced Dual SIM functionality to its new iPhones 2018. In the West, the embedded SIM (eSIM) is used in addition to the single SIM slot to offer dual SIM functionality.China will get a special model that actually has two physical SIM slots.4
