Apple introduced Dual SIM functionality to its iPhones, sort of. In the West, the embedded SIM (eSIM) is used in addition to the single SIM slot to offer dual SIM functionality.

China will get a special model that actually has two physical SIM slots.

The Apple iPhone XS builds on the hardware and features from the last year model with little changes – making it the S model. Though, the outside is no different but the “true beauty is on the inside”.

The Apple A12 Bionic chipset will advance Android flagships in performance and it is boosted with more RAM, plus a cool 512GB storage option. The base remains at 64GB and there’s a 256GB version too.
