Apple released a new ‘Shot on iPhone XS’ film to share experiences from the Cuban surfing community. Called “Ola Cubana” it was shot by professional surf photographer Zak Noyle using the iPhone XS Max with a Freefly Novi Cinema Robot stabilizer, FILMic Pro app, AxisGO waterproof container, and BeastGrip universal lens adapter and rigging system. The video was directed by Nick Woytuk, and there is also a shorter behind the scenes video. Surfing in Cuba can be a challenge, because the materials to make the surfboards are hard to find.
Chinese retailers cut the price of iPhone XS models by as much as 1,700 yuan, the second time they have slashed iPhone prices in 2019.

The iPhone XS Max DxOMark score causes the iPhone to rank fourth in the list. With a score of 82 it barely edges out the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus.
Achieving a DxOMark front camera score of 82, the Apple iPhone XS Max puts in a solid performance for both still and moving images during our tests, and is a nice improvement over its predecessor, the iPhone X. For still photos, the device boasts some great strengths for selfie shooters, including excellent HDR, bokeh shots, and detail at close range, which are among the best results we’ve observed for front cameras.
Raised issues include noise, white balance, and skin rendering.
After it was revealed that older iPhone batteries were throttled, Apple created a battery replacement program for customers.
Leaked images of the expected new Apple Smart Battery Case show that it still has a “bump” and will only be available in black.
If you have an unlocked iPhone XR, iPhone XS, or iPhone XS Max with iOS 12.1.1, you can use it. But there’s a catch.
In a support document, AT&T said that it fully supports eSIM and dual-SIM iPhones.
