iPhone XS

Welcome to the big screens.

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 iPhone. Taken to the extreme.


Super Retina. In big and bigger. The custom OLED displays on iPhone XS deliver the most accurate colour in the industry, HDR and true blacks. And iPhone XS Max has Apple’s largest display ever on an iPhone.

Exceptional materials. The most durable glass ever in a smartphone. A beautiful new gold finish, achieved with an atomic-level process. Precision-machined, surgical-grade stainless steel bands. And a new level of water and dust resistance.2

Surgical-grade stainless steel. Apple uses a special custom-designed alloy that’s precisely machined to create structural bands in three finishes.

PVD colour process. Gold and space grey finishes use an advanced physical vapour deposition process on the stainless steel bands for colours and reflectivity that beautifully complement the glass.

Wireless charging. The glass back allows iPhone XS to charge wirelessly.3 And it charges even faster than iPhone X.

Advanced Face ID. Security is simple when your face is your password. You can unlock your iPhone, log in to apps and pay for things with a glance. It’s the most secure facial authentication ever in a smartphone. And now it’s even faster.

Intelligent A12 Bionic. This is the smartest, most powerful chip in a smartphone, with Apple’s next‑generation Neural Engine. For amazing augmented reality experiences. Incredible portraits with Depth Control. And speed and fluidity in everything you do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from the worst iphone yet I bought this a month ago and have both insurance and a tempered glass screen protector, yet I dropped this phone 1ft on the corner and it has completely broken the phone, the sensors underneath the touch screen are damage to the point the phone is non useable. I have a years warranty but it will not cover this even though it is a known xs glitch, before this I had the iphone 7 which is like a nokia compared to this generation of iphone. cheap quality and no use.
