Upgrading to the iPhone XS Max gets you a number of improvements to speed and how you interact with your device. Thanks to its gesture-driven UI, the iPhone XS Max does away with physical buttons and gives you an all-screen front face. As a result, it packs a giant 6.5-inch Super Retina HD OLED with HDR support and 2688x1242 resolution. In addition, the iPhone XS Max features the A12 Bionic processor, Face ID authentication, improved water resistance, up to 4 times the maximum storage capacity, an improved dual-camera setup with 2x optical zoom, and improved build quality thanks to its stainless steel frame.
