It’s already 2019, which means just looming in the tech horizon are new iterations of the existing Apple devices plus potential new models (which are rumoured to have bilateral reverse charging and triple-lens cameras). But have you maximised the use of your iPhone XS Max just yet? SO, heres our iPhone XS Max Roundup in 2019!
The largest of the three existing models, the iPhone XS Max is the bezel-less successor of the iPhone 7 and 8 Plus, equipped with the Face ID. If you don’t have the model just yet, it is, at the moment, the top-tier model in the flagship line. Before you click here to check iPhone XS Max colours though, these are everything you need to know about the device, from specification to design.
Stainless steel frame
The iPhone XS Max’s body is made of glass panels which covers the front and bank of the device which supports QI wireless charging, plus stainless steel frames around the edges. The great thing about this iteration of the flagship line is that Apple made sure that the device is made mostly of sustainable materials. You will not find any PVC, mercury, or brominated flame retardants in the device, in fact even the stainless steel frame is recyclable.
It features an “Ingress Protection” which makes the phone resistant to water (note, not waterproof). With an IP68 rating, the 6 means the iPhone XS Max is dust-proof, the 8 means you can submerge the phone in water of up to two metres for 30 minutes.
Screen Time feature
One of the most intriguing features that came with the iOS 12 is Screen Time. It measures your phone usage habits and dividing the data by app. You can see which apps are taking most of your time and which ones haven’t been opened for a long time. It also records how often you pick up your phone and the average number of notifications you get.
What this feature allows you to do is address your phone usage habits. You can head to Settings and schedule Downtime. You can plot when certain apps cannot be used or limit the amount of time you use the apps daily, and when you can receive calls.
Depth Control for portraits
Apple’s Portrait Mode has been an added feature for both front and back camera since when the iPhone X was released. But the iPhone XS Max takes it up a notch with its Depth Control. Basically, it allows users to edit the focal length of a photo, which is the blur and the bokeh effect, in real-time using a slider.
True Tone Display
The iPhone XS Max is capable of adjusting the screen colour balance and temperature automatically, adapting to the ambient light of the room you’re in. Just go to the Control Centre and force press the brightness slider so you can tap the True Tone button. You can also go to Settings, Display and Brightness, and then toggle the True Tone switch.
