Super Retina in two sizes – including the largest display ever on an iPhone. Even faster Face ID. The smartest, most powerful chip in a smartphone. And a breakthrough dual-camera system. iPhone Xs is everything you love about the iPhone. Taken to the extreme.
The OLED panels in iPhone XSallow for an HDR display with the industry’s best colour accuracy, true blacks, and remarkable brightness and contrast. They’re the sharpest displays, with the highest pixel density, on any Apple device. Advanced colour management automatically displays your content in wide colour. So everything you look at looks beautiful. A six-channel light sensor subtly adjusts the white balance onscreen to match the colour temperature of the light around you. So images on the display look as natural as on a printed page and are easier on your eyes.
The most durable glass in a smartphone, sealed and precision-fitted with the surgical-grade stainless steel band, helps create a more water-resistant enclosure — up to 2 meters for 30 minutes. iPhone XS even resists spills from coffee, tea, soda, and more.
The A12 Bionic, with our next-generation Neural Engine, delivers incredible performance. It uses real-time machine learning to transform the way you experience photos, gaming, augmented reality, and more. Two performance cores tackle heavy computational tasks. And four efficiency cores take on everyday tasks. Our newest performance controller dynamically divides work across these cores, harnessing all six when a power boost is needed.
A new fourth core and lossless memory compression bring big gains in graphics performance to games, video editing, and visually demanding apps. The Neural Engine is incredibly fast, able to perform five trillion operations per second. It’s incredibly efficient, which enables it to do all kinds of new things in real time. And it’s incredibly smart, so you can do things like jump right into immersive AR experiences. And quickly find all your pictures of dogs. Or the beaches. Or babies.
The processing power and intelligence of the A12 Bionic make iPhone incredibly capable. But the chip was also designed with efficiency in mind. So when you put all that power into play, you still get great battery life.
An innovative dual-camera system integrates the ISP, the Neural Engine, and advanced algorithms to unlock new creative possibilities and help you capture incredible photos. Leveraging multiple technologies — like faster sensors, an enhanced ISP, and advanced algorithms — Smart HDR brings more highlight and shadow detail to your photos. iPhone XS has even more sophisticated bokeh, or background blur, for stunning portraits. And all-new Depth Control lets you adjust the depth of field after you shoot. The TrueDepth camera generates a precise depth map to keep you in focus against a blurred background. Depth Control lets you adjust the depth of field after you shoot.
The camera sensor features deeper, larger pixels. Deeper to improve image fidelity. And larger to allow more light to hit the sensor. The result? Even better low‑light photos. iPhone XSshoots the highest‑quality video of any smartphone. With better low-light performance. Extended dynamic range in videos up to 30 fps. Stereo recording. And stereo playback with wider sound separation. The iPhone XSdual‑camera system harnesses the unprecedented power of the Neural Engine and its ability to perform five trillion operations per second. Together with the Apple-designed ISP, it works like the world’s fastest photographer’s assistant to help turn your pictures into showstoppers.
Face ID reinvented the way we unlock, log in, and pay. Some of our most sophisticated technologies — the TrueDepth camera system, the Secure Enclave, and the Neural Engine — make it the most secure facial authentication ever in a smartphone. And even faster and easier to use. Face ID uses advanced machine learning to recognize changes in your appearance. Wear a hat. Put on glasses. It even works with many types of sunglasses. Face ID does so much more than unlock your iPhone. So you can forget about typing user names and passwords. Now, all it takes is a look. The advanced Secure Enclave and new algorithms make Face ID even faster. So you’ll love it even more. Face ID works with the apps you already use — from banking and health apps to locked notes and private documents.
