The bump of the iPhe XS camera is slightly larger, iPhe X cases may not fit perfectly

Although the appearance of the iPhe XS is virtually unchanged compared to iPhe X, the devices are not identical. It is clear that the Max is bigger and does not fit in current cases. The 5.8-inch iPhe Xs situati is darker.

Macotakara has discovered that the camera bump the iPhe XS is slightly larger than the iPhe X, which means that some existing cases do not fit perfectly.

While the excellent thickness of the camera bump remains unchanged, the total housing has grown about a millimeter.

Macotakara measured using digital calipers and found that the iPhe XS bump is 25.50 mm & # 39; tall & # 39 ;. The bump of the iPhe X is 24.13 mm.

This means that cases that are designed to fit exactly in the iPhe X sleeve are probably not suitable for the iPhe XS. The width of the camera bubble has also changed to fractis of a millimeter.

You can see that best visually, in the next image where Macotakara placed an iPhe X in an iPhe XS case.

iPhe X in an iPhe XS case, imperfect fit

If you look closely, you can see how the iPhe X camera stops at the bottom of the hole in the iPhe XS case, and does not really fill the width. It does not have a perfect fit, which means that it is not a perfect fit to place an iPhe XS in an iPhe X case.

During their tests, Macotakara discovered that the Apple iPhe X leather case would fit the iPhe XS, but they had to use some power to get it.

They measured that the housing of the Apple iPhe X had a camera bar with an opening of 25 mm high. The equivalent official XS case was 25.68 mm, without any power to extend it like the iPhe X cover.

It is worth noting that Apple does not menti the iPhe XS cases as backward compatible with iPhe X, and it stops its iPhe X cover this week.

For third-party cases, it depends the design whether an iPhe X housing will work. In most cases it will be the task, even if the fit is not quite there – they can be a bit loose.

The Apple Schemes for case manufacturers recommend a 24.73 mm opening for iPhe XS cases, so if a rigid case follows exactly these specificatis, there is a possibility that the XS may not fit at all.

Apart from variance in camera shots, it is worth repeating that the XS also has an extra antenna strap at the bottom left of the chassis, which means it has asymmetrical holes.

While the iPhe X had six holes each side of the Lightning port, the XS has three holes the left and six the right. Most of the cases have an open bottom and leave the entire bottom of the phe open, as Apple does, but it is something to keep in mind.
