Can you please update your results of androbench test from app store.
It measures internal memory speed and performance
I'm interested especially in 256 vs 512 comparison. The reason is Samsung makes 512 memory chip and in their own devices (like Note 9 512gb version) they use ufs type of storage instead of nvme apple use (nvme is faster than ufs).
So curious if in iPhone XS Max 512 is nvme or its put inside?
I really appreciate your help and answer in responding my doubts and questions.
Have to decide between 256 and 512
Thanks
My fault, please use app named Basemark OS II

No worries, results are as followed for 256gb XS Max. Hope a 512GB person can chime in here, interested to know if there are differences.

I’d like to see the 64gb results. Hopefully someone can help us out because I’m thinking about returning my 256 for a 64.

So it looks like it’s just the write speeds that are slower on the 64 compared to the other ones.

As far as I'm aware, connecting to iTunes via USB is still limited to USB 2.0. That's around 40 MB/s real-world sustained throughput for multi-gigabyte files, much lower for a whole bunch of 5MB or smaller files.

firstly many thanks. but the ipad pro 2 synchronizes 10.5 faster I have tested them all. If you are using xs max, you can test and share the read and write speeds with the program I have specified.

It doesn't matter even if your XS Max can write at 8000 MB/s. You're always going to be limited by the slowest link in the chain. As for the iPad Pro 10.5 syncing faster, are the data sets the same on iPhone and iPad? In general, my phone tends to have a much bigger iTunes backup compared to my iPads.

That said, PassMark recently updated their app. The previous version, the storage benchmark was too short so it was only hitting the RAM cache hence some uber high numbers.
