Leo's Tip of the Week

Product of the week

Apple iPhone Xs and Xs Max

The latest flagship smartphones from Apple, the iPhone Xs and Xs Max, follow the design from last year's iPhone X design. Both phones feature a Super Retina OLED display, while the Xs Max has the biggest display an iPhone has ever had at 6.5 inches.

iPhone Xs and Xs Max feature the new A12 Bionic processor with a next-generation Neural Engine. This will deliver faster Face ID unlocking, better augmented reality experiences, and a new depth control in the camera. This depth control will allow you to choose how in-focus you want the background to appear after you snap a photo in Portrait Mode. The A12 processor will also offer what Apple calls Smart HDR, which will take a series of photos and combine them intelligently to deliver the best detail in tricky lighting situations.

iPhone Xs and Xs Max have dual 12MP rear cameras with an f/1.8 wide-angle lens and an f/2.4 telephoto lens. The improved sensor features deeper, larger pixels for better low-light performance. The TrueDepth camera on the front is 7MP with an f/2.2 wide-angle lens.

iPhone Xs and Xs Max now have more durable glass, and come in a new gold finish in addition to Space Gray and Silver. They also now have a new level of water and dust resistance with a rating of IP68. This means it can reach a maximum depth of 2 meters for up to 30 minutes.

The iPhone Xs starts at $999, and the iPhone Xs Max starts at $1099. Storage options are 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB. The new iPhones are available for pre-order now, and will begin shipping on Friday September 21.
