NEW iPhone XS, XR, XS Max: Here’s What Students Should Know (TECH SPECS INSIDE)

3 years ago



Literally everyone is talking about the latest Apple presentation September 12 and not for nothing! Apple presented the new iPhone models leaving fans astounded. The Typical Student team couldn’t miss the opportunity to share the news with the readers. So, tune in for more information about iPhone XS, XR, and XS Max.


What's the Fuss With the New iPhones?


TechCrunch basically summed it up in three sentences calling XS “the normal one,” XR “the cheap one,” and XS Max “the big one.” But is that enough for a regular student to fathom? We doubt that, so we plunged headlong into the tech specs and color schemes. Apple’s newest product range for sure has a quite confusing naming, but it gets clearer if you think three different storage sizes and a selection of nine colors.


To put it simple, the new iPhone XS might be perceived as the iPhone X with a facelift. Meanwhile, the iPhone Max can be thought of as the new iPhone+, and the iPhone XR is a resurrection of the good old iPhone SE. See the tech specs below to see the difference:
