If you want to switch from the Apple iPhone X to the Apple iPhone Xs, you may be wondering whether you need a new cover, a new case or a new smartphone case. Do iPhone X cases fit the iPhone Xs - or do you have to look for new cases? In this guide I will explain to you why one iPhone X case can fit on the iPhone Xs, while another may not be compatible. In addition, I will give you examples of already available Xs sleeves and cases that (should) fit perfectly.
If you look at the height, width and depth of the two smartphone models from Cupertino, it is reasonable to assume that the accessories should also be the same. Both smartphones, the X and the Xs, have the following dimensions:
But even if these three technical data of the iPhone Xs from 2018 match those of the predecessor from 2017, there are still small but subtle differences. Because in addition to the general dimensions, buttons, connections and, above all, the dual camera on the back must also be taken into account. Details on the small and large differences between the individual iPhone versions can be found as technical drawings in the far back Accessory Design Guidelines (PDF) from Apple, in which all devices are described in detail.
Here is the comparison of iPhone X and iPhone Xs:
The bulge for the dual camera alone, the so-called camera bump, shows a difference that is serious for tightly dimensioned protective covers and case solutions: on the iPhone X, the "bump" is 24,13 mm high, on the iPhone Xs it measures 24,23 mm - doesn't sound like much, but it can make a difference! Incidentally, the width of the camera's lever has remained the same. Instead, other details and components have slipped, grown or shrunk. You can find all information on pages 94 and 96 of the above linked PDF document from Apple;)
So if you want to buy a suitable case for the new smartphone because the old one is very tight, you will find a small selection here. Even if you have already done the test and the iPhone X case does not fit your iPhone Xs, you could find the right product here;) Some of the iPhone cases are more generous with the differing components, so that they are offered for both models become:
