Last year, Apple released the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, and the OS can be upgraded to the latest iOS 12 Beta. Now, the Apple company has released three oversized iPhones on September 12th in the United States, which is arguably Apple’s release of three different-size smartphones on the same day. According to reports, the three iPhones are 5.8-inch iPhone XS, 6.5-inch iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone XR announced with a notched 6.1-inch LCD display and Face ID. Apple is calling the 6.1-inch screen a “Liquid Retina” display, which offers a 1792 x 828 resolution at 326 PPI, featuring Apple’s True Tone technology. While the iPhone XR may look like a larger iPhone XS, there are a few compromises — the frame is aluminum, not stainless steel. There’s IP67 water and dust protection, instead of the improved IP68 rating on the iPhone XS, and the iPhone XR’s screen is LCD, not OLED.
