The first deliveries of iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are underway, so it is only appropriate that iFixit has already stripped them to their frames. Their latest disassemblies show an L-shaped battery with improved thermal expansion protection, Apple-designed chips and more.
iFixit & # 39; s iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max shutdown
Apple announced the new iPhone models during a media event on September 12 with pre-orders on September 14. They are available today at Apple stores and pre-order deliveries are already on.
iFixit notes that the corner notches in the battery look like a smart move because the corners at the "L" corner might be susceptible to dangerous expansion problems. Apple does not want detonating phones in Samsung style in the hands or pockets of the customer.
The iPhone XS Max also has a new Apple-designed power management chip, a larger haptic motor and a louder loudspeaker. Recoverability in both models is reasonable to get a score of 6 out of 10.
The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max look like the iPhone X they are replacing. Both have an OLED Super Retina screen, a Face ID front camera, dual rear camera, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, stereo speakers, support for two SIM cards and NFC support for contactless payments via Apple Pay .
The new models have an A12 Bionic processor with a 6-core CPU and 4-core GPU, plus a Neural Engine. The GPU is up to 50% faster than the GPU in the A11 Bionic processor that Apple uses in the iPhone X. The A12 Bionic chip can process up to 5 trillion operations per second, compared to 600 billion for the iPhone X.
The iPhone models of this year are more of a penetrating improvement compared to the iPhone X. The chances are considerable next year.
