The iPhone XS and XS Max sport the faster A12 bionic chip, which is claimed to increase the performance by 15% and become 50% more power efficient, when compared to the iPhone X. The camera too has a small update; it now features TrueTone flash and faster apertures.

Another year, another teardown estimating the bill of materials (BOM) for the newest Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPhone. Retailers expect higher sales of iPhone XR in India as compared to iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max due to lower pricing.
The newly released iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are now beginning to find their feet in the smartphone market. Meanwhile, cameras cost $44 while mechanicals and housing cost $58. That "indicates that there has been some non-trivial price erosion of the OLED displays between last year's 5.8-inch OLED display and this year's 6.5-inch version, which Apple apparently did not pass on to consumers", according to IHS Markit. The iPhone XR also gets portrait mode and depth control, just like the iPhone Xs.

Users have little reason to delay new iPhone purchases now that the higher selling prices that accompanied the iPhone X are likely to continue.
The technology just isn't available to create a flawless augmented reality headset, says Apple's chief.
