A Quick Recap Of The New iPhones & Their Features

Forget The Rumours, The NEW iPhones Are Here!

New iPhone Day is one of biggest days on the calendar for any Apple fan boy or girl, and as always, there is a lot of buzz around the release. With lots of information to take in, let's get you up to speed with all the specs and features of the three new iPhones in this quick recap. But first... watch this video of iPhones magically spinning slowly through space.

SO WHAT HAS APPLE RELEASED?

Apple's latest release includes 3 new models. The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. Don't worry, Quad Lock has you covered, the iPhone XS is the same size as the iPhone X and now shipping, with the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR available for pre-order and shipping in October.

iPhone XS & iPhone XS Max

iPhone XS and iPhone XS MAx

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are the flagship models with identical specs other than the screen size of 5.8-inch for the iPhone XS and a whopping 6.5-inch for the iPhone XS Max. Both OLED "Super Retina" HD displays now have 60% greater dynamic range.

The new XS line also features Apple’s new A12 Bionic processor, which is supposed to be 15% faster than the current A11 found in the iPhone X. The water resistance has been improved with 2 meters submersion for up to 30 minutes.

The rear cameras have each seen improvements to make them faster by using larger pixels on the wide angle and a larger aperture on the telephoto. The front facing "selfie" camera is also supposed to be faster/better.

iPhone XR

The iPhone XR is the new entry level iPhone and comes with a notched 6.1-inch LCD display they call "Liquid Retina" and also supports Face ID. 

The iPhone XR's single camera is the same wide angle 12-megapixel camera used in the XS range and thanks to upgraded software you can now take cool portrait shots like the dual camera iPhones at a cheaper price!

WHEN CAN WE GET THEM?

Apple will be taking pre-orders for the iPhone XS and XS Max at 12:01am PDT on September 14. The iPhone XR can be pre-ordered on the 19th October.
