Sure, the iPhone XS may look eerily similar to its predecessor, the iPhone X, however, one of the unique ways in which it is different is the battery it supports. For all you know, playing your favorite games on will be a lot simpler than you think!

The Clever Engineering Behind The New iPhone XS Battery

What Makes the iPhone XS Worth a Look?

iPhone XS looks the same as it's predecessor, kills the bank the same if not more, but it's smart next generation dual battery has a different story to narrate. The iPhone X has a similar battery that looks like something out of a sci-fi movie. The double rectangular lithium-ion battery units are placed perpendicular to each other, in a snuggled up L- shape.

Why Did Apple Go for Two Batteries?

Apple says it's better to have two conjoined batteries than one big battery because it helps maximize the capacity in less space. They fill up the battery with more energy density as much as possible by removing useless battery parts. Apple is the first electronics manufacture to attempt such an outrageous act.

On of its patents, filed back in 2012, Apple says it has the ability to stuff lithium-ion battery's guts into whatever shape it wants. The cool tech was first applied back in 2015 on a new MacBook, manufactured the same year.

Compared to iPhone X, XS has more RAM at around 4 GB.

The previous year iPhone X and 8 Plus had only 3GB RAM. The iPhone's prime rivals, Android manufactures registered between 6GB and 8GB RAM, now that's a fair and square victory.Android got Apple that time. But unfortunately, the iPhone XS registered fewer sales compared to its counterpart, iPhone XS Max.

iPhone XS Max has been outselling the little guy ever since they've been available for purchase; it's due mainly because the iPhone XS Max provides considerably better display than the iPhone XS, which is smaller in comparison to iPhone XS Max.

Those who laid their hands on the iPhone XS first complained about slower WiFi speeds and the poorer signal on the XS compared to the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. There's been conjecture that lackluster's unsatisfactory 4G performance could be due to Apple's switch from Qualcomm to Intel modems.

Wiwavelength tested the device's network performance and results showed disappointing radio frequency performance compared to previous iPhone models, sources said the performance problems experienced by some users could be caused by "antenna issues". It seems it's not the first time Apple has let people down. Apple ditched Qualcomm's tech amid the firms ongoing legal battle.

iPhone XS features a super retina resolution screen, and a Dolby sound you will love. With advanced face ID, it is more secure than its predecessor too. The iPhone XS is made from surgical-grade stainless and features the new A12 Bionic processor. Additionally, it is among the few smart phones to have a four-core CPU, as well as six-core GPU.

With as much as 40 per cent lower power consumption, and lasting more than 30 minutes than the iPhone X, it sure is a good bet.
