Screen size

Both versions of the new phone have bigger screens than their predecessors.

The iPhone 8 had a similar design to Apple’s older iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

It had a normal amount of screen space with a 4.7-inch display, while the larger model the iPhone 8 Plus has a 5.5-inch screen.

The iPhone XS has a 5.8 inch screen while the XS Max has a huge 6.5-inch screen, the biggest ever on an iPhone.

Battery

The new iPhone XS has a much larger battery than the iPhone 8.

According to Apple the iPhone XS has 20 hours talk time compared to the iPhone 8’s 14 hours.

Internet use is about 12 hours on both phones but the iPhone XS has video playback of about 14 hours, an hour more than the iPhone 8.

When it comes to audio playback, the iPhone XS has up to 60 hours and iPhone 8 up to 40 hours.

Unlocking

The other big difference in design is that the iPhone XS lacks the Home button.

So instead of Touch ID, the iPhone XS has a biometric authentication feature called Face ID.

The technology scans your face to unlock your phone and was first introduced last year with the original iPhone X.

Apple says the battery life on the new phones is better than the iPhone 8

Storage and processor

The XS has three sizes 64, 256, or 512GB but the iPhone 8 only comes in 64 or 256GB.

Its new processor is 15 per cent faster and 40 per cent more energy efficient than the previous A11 used on the iPhone8.

Price

The new iPhone XS range is substantially more expensive than the iPhone 8.

A 4.7-inch iPhone 8 costs £599 for 64GB and £749 for 256GB.

But the iPhone XS weighs in a £999 for 64GB, £1149 for 256GB and or £1349 for the 512GB.


Prices of the bigger iPhone XS Max are £1,099 for 64GB, £1,249 for 256GB and £1,449 for 512GB.

The iPhone XS Max 512GB now has the honour of becoming the most expensive iPhone to hit the market.
