How to take screenshots in iPhone XS

The new iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR were presented by Apple during the now classic September event that the company organizes at its headquarters in Cupertino, California.

During the event, Apple introduced the iPhone XS, an evolution of the model presented just a year ago, and iPhone XS Max, a version with a bigger screen. These are the two flagship models of the company, to which is added the third iPhone XR smartphone that recalls the design of the iPhone X, but with a smaller and less defined screen.

iPhone XS is the evolution of the iPhone X presented last year, with an improved OLED screen for contrast and image rendering, a more resistant glass coating and a more powerful processor. The screen is 5.8 inches, larger than the iPhone 8 Plus but with smaller smartphone size, as the screen covers the entire surface of the phone.

For those who prefer smartphones with larger layouts, Apple has introduced iPhone XS Max, a version of the new iPhone with a 6.5-inch screen. Apart from the size of the display, the features and capabilities of the larger model are the same as those of the iPhone XS.

Apple worked to improve the sound system of last year’s model, achieving greater sound definition.

The internal Bionic A12 processor has been improved especially as regards the part of “neural engine” for the management of artificial intelligence functions.

The rear and front cameras have been updated, with a new sensor and new algorithms for processing each frame immediately after shooting. The system also uses the processor’s neural engine to enhance photographs based on the subject. On average, for every picture, 1,000 billion operations are performed before their rescue, a few moments later.

The new “Smart HDR” option takes multiple photographs and with different settings, for example exposure, blending them together to create an image with highlights, shadows, contrast and more realistic tones.

The iPhone XS battery lasts half an hour longer than the iPhone X, while that of the iPhone XS Max lasts about an hour longer.

Both smartphones can use two SIMs simultaneously, using the eSIM standard for virtual cards, so the service will be progressively available depending on the telephone operators around the world.
