Another year, another Apple Keynote showing us the next iteration of iPhone models. While the iPhone X was a great step and direction for Apple, I'm happy to see that they are expanding and building up from last years iPhone X.
iPhone Xs & Xs Max
Apple announced that their high end iPhone's are going to be the Xs which replaces the X, and a new larger 6.5" Max version. Both are available for Pre Order starting 12:01 a.m PDT on September 14, 2018. The 5.8" iPhone Xs will start at $999 while the 6.5" Xs Max will start at $1099.
We get a new gold finish color which will definitely be the highest in demand. I think it looks absolutely stunning and can't wait to get my hands on it. I highly recommend pre ordering as soon as possible, because as history repeats, the larger iPhone Xs Max with the gold will be sold out and pushed till December, or even worse, next year.
Besides the gold color, it will also be available in Silver and Space Gray and max out at 512GB storage capacity. Both models will feature a Super Retina HD Display which features an all-screen OLED Multi-Touch display and rated at 458 pixels per inch. Apple's A12 Bionic chip with next-generation Neural Engine will provide a modest performance boost of 15% while at the same time using 50% less power. The GPU has even more horsepower which brings it up to 50% faster than the A11.
These are only a few of the many new features of the new iPhone Xs and Xs Max which in my opinion, is worth upgrading to even if you have the iPhone X. However if the high price tag makes it hard, then consider the new iPhone Xr.
The biggest issue the iPhone X faced was the starting price of almost a thousand dollars. It made many consider if it's worth spending so much money on a "phone" and many have considered either keeping their current iPhone, or just going to the cheaper iPhone 8. It's a bummer because the new design and Face ID makes it such a great experience. But with the introduction of a low introductory priced iPhone Xr, many more can enjoy the new look and features.
Pre Orders are going to be a wait because they pushed it back to October 19, 2018 because of a new LCD panel. With a starting price of only $749, you get the newest A12 chip, a 6.1 inch Liquid Retina HD display, and a variety of fun color options.
Tempered Glass Screen Protector
Of course we'll have our Icy Shield tempered glass screen protectors available for the iPhone Xs, Xs Max, and the Xr which will come soon after the initial release. We're going to keep you guys updated on our newest addition to the Icy Shield family.
