iPhone XS, XS Max, X, XR - which one suits me best?

iPhone XS, XS Max, X, XR - which one suits me best?

Apple has introduced many different iPhone models to the market. We'll tell you what makes iPhone XS, XS Max, X, XR, and iPhone 8 different, so you can make your choice easier.

iPhone XS

The iPhone XS is the successor of the iPhone X. The XS was introduced by Apple in September 2018. In contrast to the iPhone X, the A12 Bionic is a more powerful processor in the XS. The screen has remained the same size. The XS also has a 12 megapixel double camera with wide-angle and telephoto lens on the back, which takes even better pictures than the X camera due to the larger sensor and better aperture values.


If the iPhone X was water-protected to IP67, the iPhone XS is now water-protected to IP68 and can therefore endure not one but two meters deep under water for 30 minutes.

iPhone XR

If you are looking for a cheaper iPhone in the Xer series, you can use the iPhone XR. It has a screen diagonal of 6.1 inches. In contrast to the XS models, the XR doesn't have a dual camera with a wide-angle and telephoto lens. With a resolution of 12 megapixels, the iPhone XR's camera is still worth seeing. It also complies with IP67 certification and is therefore water-protected for up to 30 minutes at a depth of one meter.

Just like the XS, the XR has the face recognition function for unlocking the device. The A12 chip, which is also installed, promises great performance here as well.

In contrast to the XS, the XR has to do without, among other things, the 4K video function and the OLED screen. The XR only has an LCD screen. In addition, the frame of the XR is made of aluminum; stainless steel was used for the XS.
