At 1:00 am on September 13th, Beijing time, Apple released the Apple Watch 4 and three new iPhones, including the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone Xr. The biggest enhancements of the three phones are equipped with the latest and greatest A12 bionics. The processor, in turn, has stronger performance and functionality.
Reports on the Apple Watch 4 can be found here; reports on the three products can be found here; comments on this conference can be found here. So, what are the general media about the three new iPhones that haven't been reported yet but have to pay attention to? Sorted out as follows, after reading these comparisons, you may have your own answer on which new iPhone to buy.
1. Xs supports IP68 waterproof, Xr only supports IP67.
Apple's three products this year clearly announced the first waterproof standard level, iPhone XS meets IP68 waterproof standard. It adopts the strongest and most durable glass panel to date, which is precisely attached to the surgical-grade stainless steel frame and tightly sealed. It can stay up to 30 minutes in the deepest 2 meters of water, and it can also prevent the attack of coffee, tea, soda and other liquids.
Xr supports IP67 waterproof and dustproof, and it can stay up to 30 minutes in the depth of 1 meter. How to understand this difference? Even if Xs falls off the bottom of the pool (usually more than 1.5 meters), as long as it is picked up in time, there will be no damage; Xr can take pictures while swimming at most, and cannot dive.
2. The three new iPhones have good water resistance, but they are not recommended for use in water.
Apple stated in the small print note that "the splash, water, and dust-proof features are not permanently effective, and the protective performance may be reduced due to daily wear and tear. Do not charge the iPhone in a wet state; refer to the instruction manual for cleaning and drying instructions .Damage caused by immersion in liquid is not covered by the warranty. "That is to say, do not think that it is waterproof and dustproof, you can" wash your phone "with water, even take swimming, diving, and the addition of waterproof functions is more to prevent accidents. Rather than being used in water-if something goes wrong, Apple doesn't guarantee it. Many users have been misled by this waterproof ability before. They used it in the water and spent money on repairing.
3. Not all new iPhones support dual SIM and dual standby in China.
苹果这次很贴心地针对中国区用户推出双卡双待功能，然而只有iPhone Xr（6.1吋）和iPhone Xs 6.5吋（即Max版）支持双卡功能。iPhone Xs（5.8吋）不支持，原因大概率是因为体积问题，不能容纳两个卡的空间。
用户将面临二选一：想要双卡，要么接受体积超大的Xs Max，然而很多人不习惯这么大的手机，要么接受配置更低的Xr，主要是没有3D touch（还好本身就很鸡肋），没有双摄，以及屏幕和材料差一点。
iPhone Xs 小版比iPhone X续航长半个小时，iPhone Xs Max版比iPhone X续航长一个半小时。iPhone Xr比iPhone 8 plus长一个半小时。
这三款新iPhone谁续航更牛？答案让人意外：最廉价的iPhone Xr。互联网使用最长可达 15 小时，超过iPhone Xs MAX版的13小时和小版的12小时。视频播放时间分别是16小时、15小时和14小时。如果你有续航焦虑症，廉价版是可以考虑的对象。当然，三款都免不了一天一充就是。
在存储上，今年的iPhone首次进入512GB时代，三款iPhone最高配均是512GB，最低配都是64GB。不过，iPhone Xs中配是256GB，iPhone Xr中配是128GB。为什么如此定位？很简单，iPhone Xs是廉价版，各方面省配置，满足对价格更敏感的果粉。当然，大多时候128GB已够用，特别是对拍照要求不高的用户，事实上iPhone Xr单摄的设计本身也是瞄准对拍照要求较低的用户。
If the high-end users who are not price sensitive are accustomed to using large-screen mobile phones, they can consider MAX; if they are not accustomed to large-screen mobile phones (heavy weight at the same time, 208 grams and nearly half a catty), use the 5.8-inch small version. If it's price sensitive, the iPhone Xr is enough. In addition to almost taking pictures, the battery life and performance are stronger, the function is the same, it is more portable, and the screen is not small.
Who can upgrade to iPhone Xs / r? If the old iPhone X users do not want a larger iPhone X, there is no need to upgrade to the iPhone Xs. The A11 processor is enough. If you upgrade to the iPhone Xr, it is downgraded, and it is not necessary.
iPhone 8 series users and older users can consider changing:
1. FaceID unlock is much easier to use than TouchID;
2. Stronger camera capabilities;
3. The A12 processor has stronger performance, and it is more cool to play games;
4. The full screen design and interactive experience without the Home button are much better than the iPhone 8 and previous generations.
5. After a year of polishing, many problems of the iPhone X (such as crashes, GPS signal problems) or have been resolved. Of course, is it really solved? I still need to know the real machine experience.
