They all do, but I think only the Max has the split view. No home screen in landscape anymore, but I don't see that as a big loss.
even the XS? Why did they drop the home screen in landscape mode? I love it and use it all the time in the car...

Where did you read/see split view?

Thanks

Saw it on Twitter I believe. The X doesn't have it already so we know that, and the Xr is a lesser resolution, so unlikely there. I saw it in split view on the Max though.

Yea the Xs has the same set up as the current X, which doesn't have the split view. You can use some apps in landscape though. I'd imagine it's the same way for the Xr.

The XR and XS Max support landscape split screen within the app. They both have the same point-width resolution as the previous Plus size phones.

The XS is the same as the X, point width resolution equal to the previous 4.7" iPhones and no landscape split screen.

Also, FYI none of these iPhones have a landscape home screen layout like the previous Plus iPhones did.

Can anyone source or upload an image of split view in iPhone XS Max?

Here's a couple quick screen caps:

Just an FYI - the XR has the same point resolution as the XS Max - the difference being though that the XR is 326ppi with the UI drawn @2x retina, and the XS Max has 458ppi with the UI drawn @3x retina.

Thanks for the clarification. I read some conflicting information there.
