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...

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...

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.
