Η Apple ανακοίνωσε τα iPhone Xs και iPhone Xs Max | Όλα όσα πρέπει να γνωρίζετε


Η Apple και επίσημα ανακοίνωσε τα iPhone Xs και iPhone Xs Max. Το εισαγωγικό βίντεο έδειξε δύο μεγέθη και τα δύο με νέους χρυσούς χρωματισμούς.

Τα νέα iPhones αρχικά έχουν καλύτερη αδιαβροχοποίηση μιας και είναι πιστοποίησης IP68. Το γυαλί της επιφάνειας τους επίσης είναι πιο ανθεκτικό.

Το δεύτερο μοντέλο έχει μια 6.5 ιντσών OLED οθόνη με ανάλυση 2688×1242 στα 458 ppi. Επιβεβαιώθηκε επίσης το όνομα του ως iPhone Xs Max με την Apple να αναφέρει πως ο λόγος για αυτή την ονομασία είναι πως έχει περισσότερη οθόνη από τα “Plus” μοντέλα. Το iPhone Xs Max υποστηρίζει εφαρμογές σε δύο στήλες ακριβώς όπως και τα Plus μοντέλα μέχρι σήμερα.

Η τεχνολογία 3D Touch δηλώνει παρών τόσο στο iPhone Xs όσο και στο iPhone Xs Max. Επίσης έχουμε πιο ευρύ στερεοφωνικό ηχείο και στα δύο μοντέλα μιας και έρχονται με ενσωματωμένο ένα νέο σύστημα ηχείων.

Το Face ID επίσης έχει γίνει ακόμη πιο γρήγορο χάρη στο γρηγορότερο Secure Enclave και τους γρηγορότερους αλγορίθμους που χρησιμοποιεί η Apple.

Στην καρδία των δύο νέων μοντέλων χτυπάει ο νέος επεξεργαστής της Appel A12 Bionic που είναι αρχιτεκτονικής 7nm. Επίσης έχουμε αναβάθμιση στην Neutral Engine που γίνεται 8-πυρήνων, σε σύγκριση με τους 2-πυρήνες που είχαμε στα προηγούμενα μοντέλα.

Τα iPhone Xs και iPhone Xs Max θα έρθουν και με αποθηκευτικό χώρο των 512GB.

Η κάμερα του iPhone Xs έχει αναβαθμιστεί με βελτιωμένο True Tone Flash, μεγαλύτερο αισθητήρα στην 12M κάμερα. Η εμπρόσθια κάμερα των 7MP έχει επίσης έναν γρηγορότερο αισθητήρα. Ο Phil Schiller ανέφερε πως η ποιότητα της κάμερας βελτιώθηκε με τον επεξεργαστή σήματος της εικόνας.

Το iPhone Xs έρχεται με ένα Smart HDR χαρακτηριστικό με μηδενικό shutter lag και με διαβαθμιζόμενη έκθεση του θέματος της φωτογραφικής λήψης σε διαφορετικά χρονικά διαστήματα.

To iPhone Xs και το iPhone Xs Max μπορεί να διαβαθμίσει την θαμπάδα σε μια Portrait φωτογραφία εφόσον αυτή έχει γίνει λήψη. Επίσης τα νέα iPhones μπορούν να κάνουν λήψη στερεοφωνικού ηχούν χάρη στο σύστημα 4 μικροφώνων που ενσωματώνουν.

Το iPhone Xs έχει επίσης 30 λεπτά μεγαλύτερη αυτονομία ενώ το iPhone Xs Max έρχεται με 90 λεπτά μεγαλύτερη αυτονομία. Έχουμε επίσης Dual SIM υποστήριξη.

Η Dual SIM βασίζεται στην eSIM για την υποστήριξη δύο διαφορετικών τηλεφωνικών αριθμών και κατά την κλήση η συσκευή αντιλαμβάνεται ποια SIM είναι εκείνη την στιγμή σε χρήση.

Στην Κίνα όπου η eSIM δεν υποστηρίζεται θα δημιουργηθούν ειδικά μοντέλα με διπλά SIM trays που θα μπορούν να τοποθετηθούν 2 διαφορετικές φυσικές SIM κάρτες.

Τα iPhone Xs και iPhone Xs Max θα είναι διαθέσιμα για προ παραγγελία στις 14 Σεπτεμβρίου και η διάθεση τους θα γίνει στις 28 Σεπτεμβρίου. Στην χώρα μας η ημερομήνια έλευσης τους είναι η 28η Σεπτεμβρίου όπως και στην Κύπρο.

Το iPhone Xs ξεκινάει στα $999 kai to iPhone Xs Max ξεκινάσει στα $1099.

Two All-Screen Designs

iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max build on the all-screen design of iPhone X and feature the sharpest displays with the highest pixel density of any Apple device. Now offered in 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch sizes,1 these Super Retina displays with a custom OLED design support Dolby Vision and HDR10 and have iOS system-wide color management for the best color accuracy in the industry. iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max offer a million-to-one contrast ratio with remarkable brightness and true blacks while showing 60 percent greater dynamic range in HDR photos. iPhone Xs Max delivers a more immersive experience with over 3 million pixels for videos, movies and games, offering the largest display ever in an iPhone in a footprint similar to iPhone 8 Plus.

A12 Bionic and Next-Generation Neural Engine

The Apple-designed A12 Bionic, the smartest and most powerful chip in a smartphone, features the first 7-nanometer chip ever in a smartphone that delivers industry-leading performance in a more power-efficient design. A12 Bionic features a six-core fusion architecture with two performance cores that are up to 15 percent faster, four efficiency cores that are up to 50 percent more efficient, a four-core GPU that is up to 50 percent faster, powerful Apple-designed Image Signal Processor (ISP), video encoder and more. A fast storage controller can deliver iPhone storage up to 512GB. All of this unlocks new experiences for games, photography, video editing and graphics-intensive apps. Even with all this power, iPhone Xs offers 30 minutes longer than iPhone X, and iPhone Xs Max offers an hour and a half longer than iPhone X, between charges.

The next-generation Neural Engine is built for advanced machine learning in everything from photography to augmented reality. A new eight-core design allows it to complete up to 5 trillion operations per second compared to 600 billion in A11 Bionic. This enables new capabilities like faster plane detection for ARKit and new features that use real-time machine learning. For the first time the Neural Engine is open to Core ML, empowering developers to build apps that utilize this highly efficient machine learning engine. Core ML running on the A12 Bionic Neural Engine is up to nine times faster than on A11 Bionic, with as little as one-tenth the energy usage.

Breakthrough 12MP Dual Camera System

iPhone Xs continues to bring innovations to photography, things not possible before iPhone. Capabilities like advanced depth segmentation using the Neural Engine, Smart HDR creating photos with high dynamic range and great image detail, advanced bokeh quality in Portrait mode photos and dynamic depth of field that is user adjustable in the Photos app, are all huge improvements in state-of-the-art photographic techniques that everyone can use.
