Karlie Kloss Tests Out The New iPhone XS for Us

And the camera is everything.

Last week, Apple announced the launch of the new iPhone XS and XS Max and the fashion world paid attention. Taking a break from their fashion week schedules, industry luminaries Karlie Kloss, Virgil Abloh and Naomi Campbell all showed up at the highly anticipated event. 

We tasked Karlie Kloss with giving the XS a road test over the last few days. Here, her favorite features as told in her own words.

GOLD THAT MATCHES MY JEWELRY 

  • Apple used a specially-designed alloy to create this unique color, which looks stunning in-person. Day-to-day I tend to gravitate towards gold accessories and jewelry, so this phone will fit right in.

    MOVIE-QUALITY SOUND

    •  I travel constantly for work, so I don’t always get to experience shows or movies at a theater or in the comfort of my own home. The sound quality on this iPhone completely changes my viewing experience. While I was waiting to board my flight from San Francisco this weekend, I was watching edits for our Kode With Klossy summer recap video and was blown away by how clear the sound was. It felt like I was watching it from a private movie theater instead of a crowded airport terminal.

    AN EVEN BETTER CAMERA 

    • The camera is the feature I’m most excited about. I love that you can adjust the focus and the amount of blur to each Portrait mode photo even after you take it.

      THAT CAN WITHSTAND A DROP IN THE TOILET

      • My friends can attest to this—I am a huge klutz. I probably drop my phone ten times a day, so I know the water resistance feature is going to be a lifesaver. Your phone can be in water for up to thirty minutes in up to two meters of water without damage! Texting from a pool floatie (or from the bathroom) is officially iPhone safe.

      FACETIME WITH ANIMOJI

      • I didn't really use the Animoji feature enough with the iPhone X, so I’m excited to use it more now, especially when Facetiming my family. All future calls with my sisters will be me as a robot or a cat.

        A12 BIONIC CHIP

        • This chip has great use for gaming and AR. I'm really excited to see if we can incorporate it into our Kode With Klossy curriculum next summer.
