After so many rumors in the air, Apple has finally released its newest smartphones. With each phone having its own power, it’s only getting harder for people to choose the best one.

For all Apple lovers out there, September 12 might be their new favorite day of the year as they finally introduced three new iPhones to the world: the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. However, people may be having difficulties to land their choice between these three.

For that, we are here to help you choose which newly released iPhone suits you best.


Apple has decided to discontinue the iPhone X, and if you miss the chance of having it then you can consider iPhone XS which is more powerful and faster. It comes with three beautiful colors; space gray, silver, and gold. Starting with the same price with iPhone X ($999), it has 5.8 inches screen that simply fit your grip, storage up to 512GB, a dual-camera for portrait shots, is water resistance, and boasts a colorful OLED screen. With all those, it is arguably the best iPhone one can have right now. That being said, if you’re looking to find an iPhone better than iPhone X, then this is the choice.


The iPhone XS Max sure lives up to its name, as it is the biggest iPhone Apple has ever made. However, it is also the most expensive iPhone ever as the cheapest 64GB model costs you $1,099 and can set you back to $1,449 for the 512GB version. It looks just like XS and even shares the same color. The huge 6.5 inches OLED display can give you a better experience in watching videos, playing games, and save you from doing too much scrolling on Instagram. With a bigger body, XS Max is said to have great battery life too—it can outlast iPhone X by 90 minutes. As long as you have the money and is willing to spend it, then feel free to purchase this plus-sized phone.


It’s safe to say that iPhone XR is the new iPhone 5C. They’re both the cheaper version of the flagship ones and come in many colors. iPhone XR comes in red, black, white, yellow, coral, and blue color. Starting from $749, it’s no surprise that iPhone XR is not superior compared to others. XR has a 6.1 inch LCD screen—a hardly noticeable downgrade. With 2.98 inches body width, it’s also a bit wider than XS by 0.19 inch. The camera only has a single, optically stabilized 12MP sensor, but it still offers the same portrait shots and adjustable bokeh as the XS. Aside from those, XR has the latest A12 Bionic processor, Face ID, has glass and aluminum design, and is water-resistant. An affordable iPhone with high specifications—who would not love that?
