    Got my space gray XS today as an upgrade from my silver 8 Plus. I absolutely love it. I love how the screen is about as big yet it’s so much more manageable and lighter. I picked two Apple leather cases, a product red and a black one. Love it all! The iPhone upgrade program worked flawlessly again!

    Love my new gold 256 Xs! Just upgrade from a 7+! Sad to see my favorite iPhone yet go, but I’m having SO MUCH FUN with these new features! Can’t wait to play with the camera tomorrow!

    I upgraded from an 8+ to a Xs Gold and I am so glad I went to the smaller form factor! The camera is amazing and it’s a phone I can see me not upgrading next year.

    I went 8+ to Max and so glad I did. The screen size, physical size, weight all no issue for me.

    The giant screen on the XS Max is stunning the way only Apple appears to be able to do it

    Loving my XS Max in gold. Upgraded from a 7 Plus. It’s just beautiful.

    Never thought I’d see the day when Apple made a plus size edge to edge phone. I feel like I am in a dream lol!

    That red case on a black phone will look stunning. Gorgeous color combo. :)

    Love my Max. Huge screen and my iPhone finally matches my SS Apple Watch!

    Also... Does the Max feel smaller than the Plus phones to anyone else?

    All you folks who upgraded from 1-2 year old phones. I downsized and upgraded from my 4 year old 6+ to a gray XS 256gb and it’s light years ahead of my last which had been a really good phone. The screen is almost as big but no more trying to stuff that big clunker into my jeans...

    I’m amazed by the screen, camera, and how fast faceID is

    I had the X and upgraded to the Max. I can't believe I operated with such a small phone. The Max is so much better.

    Last year, my husband and I decided to get the 8 Plus instead of the X, and I have to say I'm glad we waited for the XS Max just because the screen is absolutely amazing. We just wiped our 8 Plus phones to send back in and it already felt foreign to have to deal with the home button and smaller screen just one day after getting our new iPhones. I also had no idea that just about every app I use has Face ID built in - it's so fast!

    Upgraded from Space Grey 128GB 6+ to the Gold 256GB Max and I love it. If I had gotten the X last year, I may have skipped this year so I'm glad I waited.


    If you have anything before the X or 8+, this is a good upgrade for you even for the money.

    IPhone XS Max has cellular issues. Calls being unclear and sometimes dropping signal.

    Luckily I don’t have any charging issues but I do have signal issues.

    No issues what so ever. Great cellular quality and some of the fastest WiFi performance I have seen.

    Camera is outstanding.

    A great upgrade from my X.

    I have had the same experience as you with the exception that since launch day, sometimes when I touch the screen, it won't come on, but using the sleep/wake once fixes that. it has only happened twice, though.

    Just curious, what color, model, storage max do you have?

    I have the SG MAX unlocked (no carrier) with 512gb.

    Mine has not had this problem waking up. I charge on the Morphie wireless charging pad and if I touch the screen it opens every time so far. Hope they fix your problem with an update. Should be seeing out first one soon.

    I love my iPhone XS Max. I sold an 8 and an iPhone X to part fund it. I got the gold version with 256GBs of storage. I find it the perfect size. I never had one of the plus models with which to compare it, but it's good how Apple got rid of all that bezel and still provided a bigger screen.

    I keep an Honor 10 as a backup device but I can see myself holding onto the Max for 2 years at least.

    My LTE signals drop to 3G while calls are not always clear because VOLTE won’t work without LTE.

    Apart from that the phone is perfect.

    Love my 256GB space grey Max.

    Best/nicest phone I’ve ever owned I think.

    I’ve also found the perfect case - a Ringke Onyx.
