The latest iPhones have been announced, and with the revealing of the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max, Apple have taken the already-excellent technology of the iPhone X and enhanced it. And to celebrate the launch, Carphone Warehouse are offering an incredible cashback offer when you buy an iPhone XS or XS Max on a new Pay Monthly contract.

The XS Max is the largest iPhone ever produced, with an edge-to-edge screen and a vast array of technical improvements, while the XS brings those same improvements into the original X form factor. With all these improvements, one thing you can guarantee is that both devices will have the usual, excellent build quality, reliability and usability. We’ve picked out the top features that we’re most excited about.


The iPhone XS Max brings the hugely popular edge-to-edge Retina HD display from the iPhone XS and stretches it to an impressive 6.5in size – giving you more screen to work and play with.

To power the new, bigger screen, Apple have paired it up with their biggest battery ever to go in an iPhone, aimed at giving the XS Max an additional hour and a half of life per charge.


All three of Apple’s new iPhones come with the latest A12 Bionic processor, which Apple claims to be the most powerful chip in a smartphone.

Featuring a new iteration of Apple’s Neural Engine, the processor will help to power augmented reality and photography while also empowering everything else you might use your phone for.


Last year’s iPhone X release saw the advent of a clean, uninterrupted screen design without a Home button. The iPhone XS and XS Max build on that change with advancements in their FaceID technology.

FaceID combines the power of the A12 Bionic processor with advanced algorithms to make the unlocking process an even faster one. Give the XS or XS Max a glance and it’ll unlock. And you’ll also be able to use the technology to log in to apps or to authorise card payments.

It’s greater simplicity in your hands.

Remember! You can earn an amazing cashback offer when you order the iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max on a new contract with Carphone Warehouse.


Apple takes photography seriously. The XS and XS Max push the photography technology boundaries to even greater limits. Utilising an enhanced Image Signal Processor, the A12 Bionic’s improved Neural Engine and advanced algorithms, the iPhone XS and XS Max’s dual camera system ensures amazing, colour-rich photography in even the most challenging of environments. So whether you’re shooting in landscape or wanting to capture portraits of your loved ones, the new iPhone XS and XS Max will give you the tools to do so.


The new XS and XS Max come with the most durable glass in a smartphone, and thanks to the way its constructed, it is also the most water-resistant iPhone ever. With IP68 certification, the XS and XS Max can be submerged in water up to 2 metres deep for up to 30 minutes. It also means it is more splash resistant, even to coffee or tea. 


We’ve all experienced those moments where we get glued to our phones. Apple want to change that. The new Screen Time developments, baked into the latest version of iOS 12, give you a greater overview of the apps you use and crucially the control to limit those apps you might use a bit too much. With these new developments you’ll be able to limit just how much you use specific apps – so if you’re a bit too much of a Facebook addict you can add a limit to that app – and your iPhone will tell you when you’ve hit that limit. The new controls won’t stop you from using the apps but will remind you if you’ve hit your limit – giving you that incentive to put your phone down.

And remember, Carphone Warehouse are offering an amazing cashback deal when you order an iPhone XS or XS Max on a new contract.
