And if the difference in the height and width of the smartphone is quite obvious to all, here about the difference in thickness don’t know everything. iPhone Xs iPhone Xs Max is visibly thinner iPhone Xr by as much as 0,6 mm. Applicable to smartphones this difference can be called significant. iPhone Xr does not feel thick, but increased compared to the iPhone Xs iPhone Xs, Max (with last year’s iPhone X) should be considered.

And if it is short? The iPhone Xs and Xs Max, OLED displays, and the iPhone Xr — LCD. The main difference between the display size and resolution. In addition, the iPhone Xs and Xs Max support HDR, Dolby Vision and 3D Touch, and the iPhone’s display Xr no.
All three new iPhone features a full display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 with minimal top and bottom part and cut off the sides of the upper frame. With the launch of the iPhone Xs iPhone Xs and Xr Max iPhone Apple completely switched to the modern design of its smartphones, first implemented in the iPhone X in 2017.
Screens of the new IPhones, very obviously, differ. The key difference is in the type of displays. iPhone Xs iPhone Xs Max is equipped with OLED-display and iPhone Xr — LCD. The difference between the types of displays is that OLED displays convey the color is much more saturated with higher contrast (1 000 000:1 to 1400:1 LCD) and increased energy efficiency.
Displays iPhone Xs iPhone Xs iPhone Max and Xr differ from each other in size:
- the iPhone Xs — 5.8-inch OLED display, Super Retina HD, a resolution of 2436×1125 pixels (458 dots per inch).

A significant difference is in additional features. Displays iPhone Xs iPhone Xs and Max formats supported-HDR and Dolby Vision, the screen of the iPhone Xr no. In such formats that differ from the standard high-image quality produced movies in most popular streaming services.
Another important difference between the screens of the new IPhones is that the screen of iPhone Xs iPhone Xs Max support 3D Touch, and iPhone Xr no. Yes, Apple quite unexpectedly missed the 3D Touch support on the iPhone Xr, despite the fact that tracking technology forces pressing on the display has become one of the key pieces of the iPhone.
It is also important to know that the LCD display of the iPhone Xr received one of the most commonly used “chips” of OLED displays. Apple engineers were able to ensure that the Retina display is Liquid activated, when you touch it. This is very convenient and useful feature previously worked only on OLED displays, but the efforts of Apple and got to the LCD screen of the iPhone Xr.
Technology support True Tone that automatically changes the temperature of the display depending on ambient light, the ability to display content with 120Hz frame rate, expanded color gamut P3, high quality oleophobic coating have all three smartphones.
And if it is short? The more expensive iPhone Xs iPhone Xs Max can only boast increased RAM memory — 4 GB internal memory — maximum of 512 GB. Other features of the smartphones are identical, and the processor A12 Bionic to each model works at full capacity.
iPhone Xs iPhone Xs iPhone Max and Xr are equipped with the same processor, Apple A12 Bionic. The processor is made according to an innovative 7-nanometer technology, has six cores 2.6 GHz, coprocessor motion M12 and a Quad-core chip, which was created by the Apple company. A12 Bionic 20-50% faster than the preceding chip A11 Bionic. In addition, the processor is 30% more energy efficient.
It is important to stress that the CPU A12 Bionic in all three smartphones runs on full power and with the support of the 8-core machine learning module Neural Engine. Why is it important? The fact that iPhone 8, iPhone 8 and iPhone Plus X was also installed the same chip A11. But only in iPhone X it works with maximum performance, having the possibility of using machine learning to improve iOS, camera work, etc.
In the case of the iPhone Xs iPhone Xs and Xr Max the iPhone, Apple did not deprive more affordable iPhone Xr in a similar way.
iPhone Xs iPhone Xs iPhone Max Xr exceed the amount of RAM. The more expensive iPhone Xs iPhone Xs Max is 4 GB, the iPhone Xr 3 GB. The advantage of the flagships and the volume of internal memory. iPhone Xs iPhone Xs and Max are available with 64, 256 and 512 GB (record over all history of Apple) memory and iPhone Xr with 64, 128 and 256 GB storage.
All other features of the smartphones are identical.
And if it is short? The iPhone Xs and Xs Max completely identical dual camera. Xr the iPhone camera is only one — 12-megapixel with a wide angle lens, exactly the same as installed in “older brothers”. But the iPhone Xr is suffering greatly due to the lack of “one eye”. Smartphone were missing only twice the optical zoom and extra optical image stabilization.
iPhone Xs iPhone Xs Max is equipped with dual 12-megapixel camera with a wide angle and a telephoto lens. Aperture wide-angle lens is equal to f/1.8 telephoto lens — f/2.4. Dual camera supports optical image stabilization when shooting photos and video, Portrait for capturing photos with depth of field effect (bokeh) and the new for iPhone the ability to shoot video in 4K resolution with stereo sound.
The iPhone camera is one of the Xr — 12-megapixel with a wide angle lens. The camera is exactly the same as the iPhone Xs iPhone Xs Max with all the consequences. She has a aperture of f/1.8, deeper pixels and advanced image processor.
IPhone Xr no telephoto lens, which is available to the iPhone Xs iPhone Xs Max. How much this difference reduces the photo quality and feature set camera? You will be surprised, but very slightly. The essential difference lies only in two important details: the iPhone camera Xr has double the optical zoom and is equipped with a conventional optical image stabilization, and not a double.
No, we have not forgotten about the Portrait, which until the release of the iPhone Xr was exclusive for the iPhone with dual cameras. Apple created the technology that allows you to shoot photos with depth of field effect on a single camera. And the quality of the bokeh in all three new iPhone improved compared to the iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus. Apple gave its new product a specific name, just calling the mode “Portrait” seriously improved.
Moreover, a single-camera Xr supports a new option “Depth”, which allows you to change the depth of field effect after shooting the photo. Mode support shooting 4K video with stereo sound the smartphone is also present.
Front camera TrueDepth all smartphones are identical: resolution 7 MP with f/2.2 aperture, support enhanced mode “Portrait” and the “Depth”, as well as better stabilization when shooting video.
And if it is short? The difference between the smartphones no.
And since we are talking about the sound, you should immediately close this section. iPhone Xs iPhone Xs iPhone Max and Xr received the same enhanced stereo speakers that are 50% louder than the ones installed in the iPhone X. in Other words, differences in terms of sound between smartphones no.
And if it is short? And again the difference between the smartphones no.
Function precise face recognition Face ID in all new IPhones works identical. It should be noted that the Face ID in the iPhone Xs iPhone Xs and Xr Max iPhone faster than the iPhone X by increasing the speed of the security module, the Secure Enclave and trite increased processor performance A12 Bionic. Face ID in new smartphones Apple faster defines the face of the owner and therefore the faster it releases the lock or confirm the identity of the purchase.
Protection from water
And if it is short? iPhone Xs iPhone Xs Max is protected by standard IP68, and iPhone Xs — IP67 rated.
iPhone Xs iPhone Xs Max has an improved protection against water and dust to standard IP68. This means that in the case of smartphones can’t get the dust, and in water they can safely spend 30 minutes to a depth of two meters.
IPhone Xr also has protection from water, but less reliable. The smartphone is protected from water and dust according to IP67 standard. The dust under his body also can not get, but in the water it can withstand 30 minutes at a depth of one meter.
And if it is short? iPhone Xs iPhone Xs and Max have the support of Gigabit Class LTE technology with MIMO 4×4 and LAA, and iPhone Xr no.
iPhone Xs iPhone Xs Max support Gigabit Class LTE technology with MIMO 4×4 and LAA. IPhone Xr support superfast no LTE, only 4G LTE Advanced.
If to speak clear words, the iPhone Xs iPhone Xs Max work faster 4G Internet than the iPhone Xr. However, in order to experience the maximum connection speed to be connected to tariff plan with support for Gigabit Class LTE. Note that leading Russian operators use such technology.
More importantly, the presence of the iPhone Xs iPhone Xs Max support MIMO 4×4. The smartphone is just more of the antennas, when the reception signal is higher compared to the iPhone Xr.
All new IPhones “dvuhsimochny”, but only one SIM card is a normal physical (nano-SIM). The second SIM card eSIM integrated directly into the smartphone. In Russia, unfortunately, no operator not supported by eSIM, so take advantage of the second “SIM” on the iPhone Xs iPhone Xs iPhone Max and Xr is not possible.
For completeness, we can say that in China the iPhone Xs iPhone Xs iPhone Max and Xr are manufactured with two slots for conventional physical SIM-card format nano-SIM. But it is unlikely that iPhone designed for the Chinese market, will be able to work with the Russian operators.
Battery and operating time
And if it is short? iPhone Xs works without charging considerably less than the iPhone Max iPhone Xs and Xr, where the indices are the same.
The iPhone Xs iPhone Xs iPhone Max and Xr installed lithium-ion batteries consisting of two cells in the shape of the letter L. the capacity of the batteries varies:
- the iPhone Xs — 2800 mAh.
- iPhone Max Xs — 3400 mAh.
- iPhone Xr — 2716 mAh.
The difference in capacity of the battery affects the battery life of smartphones as follows:

- iPhone Max Xs — up to 15 hours of Internet surfing, up to 25 hours of talktime.
- iPhone Xr — up to 15 hours of Internet surfing, up to 25 hours of talktime.
The autonomy of the more compact iPhone Xs worse than the iPhone Max iPhone Xs and Xr. It is noteworthy that Xr is not inferior to the iPhone Xs iPhone Max for battery life despite the large difference in battery capacity.
All three smartphones support fast charging (50% in 30 minutes) and fast wireless charging.
And if it is short? Xr cheaper iPhone and iPhone Xs iPhone Xs Max on an impressive 23 and 32 thousand rubles, respectively. The difference in price between the iPhone Xs iPhone Xs Max — nine thousand rubles.
And, of course, a big difference between the cost of the new Apple smartphones. In Russia, the smartphone will be sold at the following prices:

iPhone Xs Max
- iPhone Xs Max 64 GB — 96 990 rubles.
- iPhone Xs Max 128 GB — 109 990 rubles.
- iPhone Xs Max 256 GB — 127 990 rubles.
iPhone Xr by as much as 23 thousand rubles cheaper iPhone Xs. And by 32 thousands more available iPhone Xs Max. The difference in price between the iPhone Xs iPhone Xs Max is 9 thousand rubles in favor of the latter.
And another important point. iPhone Xs iPhone Xs Max will go on sale sooner than iPhone Xr. In Russian stores flagships will be available on September 28. iPhone Xr will arrive on the shelves of the stores only on October 26. The delay was caused by production problems (and wish Apple well at first to sell the more expensive flagships).
