Upgrading to the iPhone XS gets you major upgrades to device speed and overall user experience. The iPhone XS offers a completely gesture-driven UI, giving you an all-screen front face without any physical buttons getting in the way. It also packs a larger and higher resolution display, taking you from a 5.5-inch LCD at 1920x1080 resolution to a 5.8-inch Super Retina HD OLED with HDR support and 2436x1125 resolution. The iPhone XS also features Face ID authentication, the A12 Bionic chip, and an improved IP68 water resistance rating. Finally, the iPhone XS improves on build quality with its stainless steel frame.
