No other smartphone is like iPhone
Only when hardware and software are designed together can they truly work together. Apple teams design the world’s best products, with the most innovative displays, chips, cameras, operating systems, and services. But just as important, the teams collaborate so that all the components of iPhone mobiles work together efficiently and beautifully. While this might seem like an obvious way to work, no other smartphone is made this way. And it makes all the difference. It means that the camera team can work with the chip team to leverage the power of the A12 Bionic chip. So that when you frame a shot, the ISP and Neural Engine identify faces in the frame. Detect specific features. And optimize for lighting, white balance, and more before you even tap the shutter. This is the kind of stuff you’d never even know is happening. You just see the result — the shot you wanted, with more detail, true-to-life color, and dynamic range than you would have thought possible from a smartphone.

iPhone Xs Cell Phone: IP68
The most durable glass in a smartphone, sealed and precision-fitted with the surgical-grade stainless steel band, helps create a more water-resistant enclosure up to 2 meters for 30 minutes. iPhone XS even resists spills from coffee, tea, soda, and more.
This is the smartest, most powerful chip in a smartphone, with our next-generation Neural Engine. For amazing augmented reality experiences. Incredible portraits with Depth Control. And speed and fluidity in everything you do.
Two performance cores tackle heavy computational tasks. And four efficiency cores take on everyday tasks. Our newest performance controller dynamically divides work across these cores, harnessing all six when a power boost is needed.
A new fourth core and lossless memory compression bring big gains in graphics performance to games, video editing, and visually demanding apps.
Apple-designed Neural Engine
Apple's Neural Engine is built for advanced, real-time machine learning. That means iPhone XS can recognize patterns, make predictions, and learn from experience, similar to the way you do.
The Neural Engine is incredibly fast, able to perform five trillion operations per second. It’s incredibly efficient, which enables it to do all kinds of new things in real time. And it’s incredibly smart, so you can do things like jump right into immersive AR experiences. And quickly find all your pictures of dogs. Or beaches. Or babies.
Apple has also opened the Neural Engine up to the Core ML platform, so developers can bring powerful, real-time machine learning to their apps — learning that happens right on your iPhone.
The image signal processor features a refined depth engine, which captures extraordinary detail in Portrait mode. And with Smart HDR, you’ll notice far greater dynamic range in your photos.
iPhone Xs Smartphone: Face ID (Your Face is Your Password)
Face ID reinvented the way we unlock and log in. Some of our most sophisticated technologies — the TrueDepth camera system, the Secure Enclave, and the Neural Engine — make it the most secure facial authentication ever in a smartphone. And even faster and easier to use.
Adaptive Recognition: Face ID uses advanced machine learning to recognize changes in your appearance. Wear a hat. Put on the glasses. It even works with many types of sunglasses.
Do More with a Glance: Face ID does so much more than unlock your iPhone. So you can forget about typing usernames and passwords. Now, all it takes is a look.
Unlock in an Instant: The advanced Secure Enclave and new algorithms make Face ID even faster. So you’ll love it even more.
