Apple has launched three new iPhones. Two of them — the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max — are the successors to the iPhone X and the iPhone 8 Plus. The new phones will go on sale soon globally as well as in India. While we have written much about the new iPhones, including the quick review of the iPhone XR, iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XS, if you want a quick look at the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max, here you go:
Processor: The iPhone XS and the iPhone Xs Max use A12 Bionic processor. This is an Apple-designed processor, which is made on 7nm fab technology, which means made by TSMC because that is the only foundry using this new tech right now. The A12 Bionic has 6 CPU cores and 4 graphics processors. It also has a dedicated chip for neural networks, which is a fancy term for AI processing.

Variants: There are three variants: 64GB variant, 256Gb variant and 512GB variant.
