New iPhones are bigger in size and price tag

Our own testing showed similar results using the Speedtest.net app: "downloads reached as high as 103 Mbps on the iPhone Xs and 96.9 Mbps on the iPhone Xs Max [.] By comparison, the older iPhone X averaged just 15.5 Mbps down and under 6 Mbps uploads".

We'll keep updating this post as more reviews come in.

In a note to investors Kuo discloses that the reception for the iPhone XS Max was great, as expected, but the demand for the 5.8-inch iPhone XS is lower than previously projected. For people with massive hands, the Max is a no-brainer. Apple explained during the event last week that both the iPhone XS and XS Max feature support for Gigabit LTE, while the XR is stuck with LTE Advanced.

"This is a premium phone with an even more premium price tag", TechRadar's John McCann wrote.

On T-Mobile, the increase was much less, in part because the iPhone X already had the fastest connectivity in that network: 29.82Mbps. I didn't notice a huge leap in performance when launching apps and zipping through iOS 12 on the iPhone XS, but it's there if you're willing to look for it.

Clearly, if you care about getting those streaming series without a single hiccup, you will want to get the iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max. (Obviously, we'll dig deeper into how the A12 Bionic handles those in our full review.) There's no question that the XS and XS Max are the fastest phones Apple has ever made, but you'll really notice those performance gains in specific situations.
