Apple iPhone XS review: The luxury-upgrade iPhone


The Good The iPhone XS has a markedly improved dual camera, delivering better photos than the iPhone X in both dark and high-contrast environments. It has a faster processor, faster face ID, adds dual-SIM support and it’s now available in gold and 512GB versions.

The Bad Its battery life is the shortest of the three new iPhones and only incrementally better than last year"s. Despite its still-rich price tag, increased storage, USB-C fast chargers and headphone dongles will have you spending even more.

The Bottom Line While we"d still recommend the iPhone XR first, the XS has some extras worth noting.
