IPhone XS/Max review roundup: iPhone X owners, don't bother; everyone else, wait for the XR

1 month ago   |   By 9to5Mac

The first reviews of the iPhone XS and XS Max are out, and the story is incredibly consistent.
While reviewers do note that the iPhone XS offers notably better sound than the X, and the camera improvements impressed many, the overwhelming view was that there's little here to justify an upgrade from last year's model unless you want that giant screen.
If you currently own any of the older models, then the consensus view is that one of this year's iPhones is a big upgrade - but don't order one yet, because the iPhone XR offers most of the benefits at a significantly lower price...

Apple may have silently started an eSIM revolution with the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR

Apple may have silently started an eSIM revolution with the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR

1 month ago   |   By Phone Arena

It's easy to ridicule Apple for adding dual SIM capabilities to the 2018 iPhone lineup when considering this has been a standard feature for a number of Android handset manufacturers starting many years ago.
But it's important to keep in mind the iPhone XS, XS Max, and iPhone XR don't actually come with two physical SIM card slots. Well, they do in China, but everywhere else they combine a real, tangible nano-SIM tray with digital eSIM technology.
The latter was previously used on the Apple Watch Series 3, essentially allowing the wearable device ...

Best iPhone XS Max screen protectors

Best iPhone XS Max screen protectors

1 month ago   |   By Phone Arena

Apple raised the prices for replacing a broken screen on your iPhone, and the new XS and XS Max will set you back $279 and $329, respectively. That's way more than what Apple used to charge for the screen swaps on its previous iPhones, even the X, so if you know you can't be bothered caring for your phone, better put a case on it... and a screen protector.
Granted, Apple says it is using its most durable glass ever both for the screen cover layer, and for the chassis, but until drop tests definitely prove the iPhone XS and XS Max as hard nuts to crack, we'd put at least a film protector ...

IPhone XS will boost eSIM shipments to 420m by 2022

1 month ago   |   By Tech Radar

It is predicted the inclusion of eSIM technology in the recently-launched iPhone XS , XS Max and XR will catalyse the market and lead to 420 million shipments by 2022. eSIMs are a fixture of cellular-powered Internet of Things networks, allowing devices to switch networks without the need for a physical intervention. Apple itself has been a supporter of the technology, including its Apple SIM standard in the iPad Air 2, and using an embedded SIM for the LTE variants of the Apple Watch, while a few Android devices support the feature.

IPhone Xs LTE Speed Test Reveals Huge Improvements Over iPhone X

IPhone Xs LTE Speed Test Reveals Huge Improvements Over iPhone X

1 month ago   |   By Ubergizmo

When the new iPhones were announced, Apple touted a bunch of new features and improvements that they were making to the phones. However they did not cover everything since it would take too much time, and one of those improvements they did not cover was improvements to LTE speeds. According to a recent LTE speed test , it was found that Apple's iPhone Xs and Xs Max showed tremendous speed improvements over its predecessor, the iPhone X. While the iPhone X was no slouch, it was found that the newer iPhones have shown an average speed increase of over 200% in terms of downloads across all...

Gold and red are your favorite new iPhone XS, XS Max, XR colors; white - not so much

1 month ago   |   By Phone Arena

So, with all the buzz around the hardware and overall improvements inside Apple's new iPhones, we all probably paid little to no attention to the color options that the XS, XS Max, and the XR will be available in. As the color plays a major part in the overall design experience, we though it would be nice to probe the public's mood and see which of the new iPhone colors are more favored than the rest.
So, when it comes to the iPhone XS and the XS Max, it would seem that Apple has struck gold... figuratively speaking. A vast majority of the readers that voted in our ...

LG V20 receives belated Android Oreo update on Verizon

LG V20 receives belated Android Oreo update on Verizon

1 month ago   |   By Phone Arena

While iOS 12 has just begun rolling out for iPhones as old and modest as the 5s, 6, and SE, the world's first device to run Android 7.0 Nougat out the box back in 2016 is now getting its over-the-air Oreo update on America's largest wireless network.
That's not a typo, mind you, as the LG V20 is barely moving up to Android version 8.0, which Google originally released more than a year ago. Obviously, this horrible delay is largely LG's fault , although Google has to take some responsibility for Oreo's horrendous distribution numbers as well.
Of course, ...

First Verizon vs AT&T vs T-Mobile's iPhone XS download speed tests show huge jump over iPhone X

First Verizon vs AT&T vs T-Mobile's iPhone XS download speed tests show huge jump over iPhone X

1 month ago   |   By Phone Arena

The new iPhone XS and XS Max flaunt faster cellular modems than the iPhone X, and it shows in testing. Research firm SpeedSmart ran the Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile models of the iPhone XS or XS Max through its LTE speed testing routine, and the results above are pretty telling.
The new OLED display iPhones scored two to three times faster download speeds than their predecessor the iPhone X which doesn't have a Gigabit-class LTE modem. The difference in upload speeds was less pronounced but still significant, so you can rest assured that if you get the XS and XS Max you will ...
