Plus, Apple's new phones over the last two years haven't really thrilled me.
Apple claims the firmware upgrade will mean, for instance, that apps will launch up to 40% faster on the iPhone 6S and you'll be able to open the camera up to 70% faster.
Just after midnight Friday, Apple started taking preorders for two of its new iPhones and Series 4 smartwatch and, according to some users, models for delivery by launch day on September 21 are already sold out. But do they deliver? We show you what it can do.
But in France, for example, over just the basic version of the iPhone XS is Max with 64 GB of internal flash memory. It'll start at $750; lower than the $999 price of the higher-end iPhone XS. Plus, the low (ish) pricing of Apple's surprisingly feature-packed XR could be tempting for those that aren't too invested in the Android/Google ecosystem, especially if they're feeling spurned by the Pixel 3 leaks.
On the software front, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will run iOS 12 out-of-the-box. Both the iPhone XS and iPhone X comes with same 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED display that offers 2436 x 1125 pixels resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
The new models are expected to be the same two sizes that they have always been, 38mm and 42mm and will be offered in two different types, Global Positioning System and GPS + cellular, but this time round, the inclusion of watchOS 5 will feature a walkie-talkie feature and a Podcast app.
Apple didn't invent this big phone fashion.
It also means that Apple no longer sells any phones with 3.5mm headphone jacks. The two devices are among the most expensive in the market.
For last year's iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, customers can spend up to Dh300 less.
Now, let's compare with the newly launched iPhone XS with the one-year-old iPhone X.
It's the ideal tool for taking bigger selfies, for pawing at bigger Instagram pictures, for streaming even more Netflix. "Overall, this is going to be a very good year for Apple".
First Take: Both phones feel extremely exquisitely crafted in the hand and feature improved IP68 water resistance that's supposed to allow for 2m-deep water submersion for up to 30 minutes, but the Max is where the big changes (quite literally!) are most felt.
