Apple just made its two latest flagship iPhones official. After months of rumors, speculation, and leaks, the company revealed the iPhone XS (pronounced “ten-es”), and the iPhone XS Max.
Apple revealed the new phones at its annual iPhone event at the company’s Steve Jobs Theatre in Cupertino, California.
The new pair of phones build on last year’s iPhone X. Like the iPhone X, the 5.8-inch iPhone XS and 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max are equipped with a TrueDepth camera for FaceID (yes, there’s still a notch) and dual rear cameras.
The glass and steel phones come with OLED Super Retina displays and are powered by Apple’s new A12 processor.
The reveal also finally puts to rest the months of questions about what the phones will actually be called. While “iPhone XS” follows Apple’s familiar naming conventions, if somewhat clumsily, the larger, 6.5-inch variant will be called iPhone XS Max, eschewing the typical “Plus” moniker. Confused? You’re not alone, there was reportedly some agonizing internally at Apple over names for this year’s iPhone lineup.
