This speed test shows the differences between iPhone XS and iPhone X

The new iPhone XS Max features the 7nn A12 Bionic processor, compared to the 10nn A11 Bionic of the iPhone X. A priori, the XS should be faster than its predecessor, but to what extent is it remarkable?

That’s what we’re going to discover today thanks to the speed test of the EverythingApplePro YouTube channel where they’ve carried out this test to get out of the way.

First of all, we warn you that the differences between one device and another in real situations, there are no very wide distances . Although at the time of forcing the device with more demanding processes, we will notice an improvement in the iPhone XS.

The iPhone XS Max and iPhone X face to face

As we can see in the video, during the tests, both equipments have a very similar performance. Apple promised up to 30% more speed in the initial opening of the applications, but thanks to the good performance of the A11 Bionic processor with iOS 12, we will hardly notice any difference, at least in the lighter apps.

On the other hand, when we demand a heavier process such as exporting or editing video in 4K format or opening a game, the A12 Bionic hits the table to stand out from its little brother. It is true that the iPhone will not edit many videos, as it is more comfortable to do so from the Mac or from an iPad.

Demanding tasks make a difference

But to improve some short video or make some quick editing, the iPhone XS screen (especially the XS Max screen) will be more than enough. Thanks to the interface of applications adapted to the size of these screens, such as iMovie , it is very intuitive to edit the videos.

The augmented reality that Apple is working so hard on is also favourable on the iPhone XS with the A12 Bionic processor. The processes are faster, the movements smoother and the battery optimization is much higher than the A11 . The same goes for games that need a lot of potential, there the difference is more than noticeable.

So, we have some differences between the iPhone XS Max and the iPhone X, but rarely on a day-to-day basis will we notice them with lightweight apps, unless we are a demanding user who uses apps that need superior performance or more powerful games .
