Apple's new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max were finally released this past weekend after what seemed to some people like an impossibly long wait. Considering details surrounding the new XS and XS Max first started leaking before last year's iPhone X was even released, it's not exactly a surprise that the wait felt so long for Apple fans. The phones are now here though, and Apple fans seem to be quite happy with them overall. The iPhone XS marks what is undoubtedly the smallest year-over-year upgrade compared to the iPhone X from 2017, but "S" phones are typically designed for people who...

Apple has confirmed that a future iOS update will bring the slider control directly to the camera app so you will have the option of previewing the background blur even before snapping the photo. However, the company didn't say exactly when and with which update the feature will be released but we guess it will be sooner than...

IPhone XS phones are beer-resistant, but the glass can still shatter on drops

A drop test video on Friday showed us that the news iPhone XS and XS Max are indeed more durable than the iPhone X, surviving drops from various heights. But the phones aren't indestructible.
