On Wednesday, Apple showed the public three new smartphones — the iPhone XS iPhone XS iPhone Max and XR. Now all eyes are on the flagship models — and according to 9to5Mac, Ben Lovejoy, quite unfairly, as it was “cheap” iPhone now looks the most advantageous.

The article was published in the blog 9to5Mac.

Not so long ago was the line’s flagship models — the iPhone XS iPhone XS and Max (I still can’t believe that Apple decided to name their smartphones that way). As a rule, after showing the new products, they immediately become a subject of discussion, and mostly it is justified. But this year, it’s safe to say this is the most featureless product of the company over the years. Let’s look together:

  • Yes, many of us have seen the leaked promo materials of the iPhone XS iPhone XS Max. This is definitely a little spoiled the impression from the presentation itself, but if you look at the truth, even if leaks were not — shown smartphones would we still not surprised.
  • In fact, Apple just repeated what we heard a year ago. A powerful new processor, improved camera, the most durable glass. Yeah, it’s cool. But for most people, there is no fundamental difference. And the price makes itself felt perceptibly
  • Summing up, we can say that there are no objective reasons to upgrade from iPhone X. Then why such a fuss?

In my opinion, only two innovations look interesting: this is an improved standard for dust and moisture protection IP68, as well as the ability to adjust the depth of field in the picture after shooting.

Quite different is the situation with iPhone XR. Take a look at it more closely:

  • For relatively little money we have a design iPhone X, the latest processor, enhanced Face ID. What is not a flagship?
  • This is a great solution for all sensitive people who can’t use the OLED-matrix because of their flicker.
  • Despite the fact that the smartphone has just one camera, all the basic functions in place. The same portrait mode, adjust the bokeh effect.
  • And the icing on the cake — a large number of colors for every taste.

I believe that as soon as iPhone will XR become available for purchase, it can easily overshadow the flagship model and become the most popular smartphone in the lineup.
