The iPhone XS and XS Max restore images are now available for download through the developer portal. If you often switch between beta and stable releases, having a copy of restore image downloaded on your computer comes in handy to install/flash iOS software updates on your iPhone.

To flash a restore image on your iPhone XS, you need a computer with iTunes installed on it. To be precise, you need iTunes version 12.8 on the Mac and iTunes version 12.9 on Windows to connect to iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.
