New 2018 iPhones compared

Apple’s three new iPhones — the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR — are all mostly an upgrade from the iPhone X.

The iPhone XS models are the typical upgraded S versions of the iPhone X. The XS has a 5.8-inch OLED display, similar to the iPhone X, while the XS Max has a large 6.5-inch OLED display, the biggest iPhone display yet.

The iPhone XR, on the other hand, has a 6.1-inch LCD display Apple calls the “Liquid Display.” With its LCD screen, the XR model is cheaper but it will still have features like Face ID and an edge-to-edge display.

Here’s how the new phones stack up against the iPhone X.
