Why would you want an Apple iPhone XS? Lots of reasons really, including that the iPhone XS has an edge-to-edge OLED Super Retina HDR display, plus new technology that provides 60% more dynamic range and faster facial recognition than previous iPhone models. It’s tougher than previous Apple smartphones too, with a new formulation of glass that is “the most durable glass ever in a smartphone,” according to Apple, and also has a water-resistance rating of IP68, the highest of any Apple offering. Does that make the iPhone XS waterproof? No, but it does mean it can dropped into a body of water five feet deep for 30 minutes without damage. And what about the iPhone XS size? Its 5.8-inch screen is plenty big enough for you to immerse yourself in movies and games. Each Apple iPhone XS box includes a standard USB to Lightning wired charger and wired EarPods with Lightning Connector. Or if you prefer to go wireless, you can get a pair of AirPods, known for producing strong bass and pairing with your devices quickly. iPhone XS comes in several finishes, including gold, silver or space gray.
The iPhone XS offers faster processing speeds and advanced features while using less energy than previous models, because of the industry’s first 7-nanometer bionic chip, the A12. Additionally, the iPhone XS features four omnidirectional microphones, so you can record in stereo. If that’s something you’re interested in, and you’re planning on using an iPhone XS case to protect your investment, be certain you select one that will accommodate all four mics, three of which are located next to the charging port, and the fourth which is designed to handle noise cancellation duties. Speaking of protection, you might also want to consider getting an iPhone XS screen protector to keep the screen scratch- and smudge-free, and to help defend against shattering.
Benefits of the iPhone XS Camera
You can’t talk about iPhone XS features without mentioning the iPhone XS camera. It’s an impressive camera setup, with dual 12MP rear cameras with wide-angle and telephoto lenses, and a 7MP TrueDepth front camera, all of which employ a new sensor, which produces deeper, larger pixels that gather 50% more light for better, brighter photos, especially in low-light. That’s not all though. Thanks to the new Neural Engine, color representation is more accurate, and Portrait Mode locks on quicker, and produces better results than ever. A Depth Control feature lets you adjust your portrait shots after the fact, and a smart High Dynamic Range (HDR) feature highlights each area of each photo to provide greater detail, even in shadows. The result of these user-friendly features is that even if your photography skills haven’t improved, your results will, even to the extent that you may want to be sure you have an all-in-one printer close at hand so you can print, copy, scan, email or fax your photo and videographic creations for immediate sharing with friends and family.
If you’ll be using your iPhone XS camera to film videos or take landscape photos, you may want to get a cell phone tripod to add stability to your efforts. And, you’ll definitely want one if you’re interested in time-lapse photography to capture video at a very low, one to two frames per second (fps) rate, for an exciting special effect.
