The iPhone XS (pronounced "ten-S") is a touchscreen slate smartphone designed and marketed by Apple Inc. It is a 18th generation iPhone, being the successor to the iPhone X and the predecessor to the iPhone 11 Pro.
The iPhone XS and XS Max were introduced at Apple's iPhone event on September 12, 2018 by Apple CEO Tim Cook at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California, alongside the iPhone XR, a lower-cost variant without the newer OLED screen technology.
The new features primarily consisted of a new faster 6-core Apple A12 Bionic processor, a 5.8 or 6.5-inch Super Retina display, updated Face ID, and an improved dual-camera system. The XS also adopted a 4x4 MIMO 4G antenna, doubling the maximum cellular bandwidth over that of the 2x2 antennae in the iPhone X and XR.
The iPhone XS was released with iOS 12 as its first operating system.
