Most prominently, Apple have made improvements to their dust- and water-resistant technology, meaning that the iPhone XS model is less susceptible to damage in this way. Furthermore, the XS has a new speaker which is reported to be louder and clearer than any previous device, making the phone far more suitable for a variety of applications, such as watching videos.
In terms of battery features, the iPhone XS carries on the advancements of the X by having wireless charging capabilities. It also has a longer battery life than the original X by nearly 30 minutes, which, while seemingly quite a small increase, is great when you think how much more powerful the phone actually is.
While not exclusive to the iPhone XS, it will be spear-heading the launch of iOS 12, the latest update to Apple’s operating system. While there aren’t too many details about how much iOS 12 will differ from its predecessors, it’s sure to add something a little different to match the shiny new device.
