2 Camera Tech
All three 2018 iPhone models come equipped with Apple’s highly-advanced TrueDepth camera systems, front-and-center, enabling next-generation 3D facial mapping with Face ID biometric security, Animoji, and the all-new Memoji features, across the board.
Flip them over, and you’ll instantly notice where the iPhone XS and XS Max differ from the iPhone XR. While the higher-end XS duo boasts an even more advanced iteration of Apple’s dual-lens camera system introduced on the iPhone 7 Plus, the iPhone XR notably retains a [slightly more advanced] version of the same single-lens camera Apple used on iPhone 8.
Granted, the iPhone XR will still be able to take advantage of Apple’s new camera settings like Depth of Field, there’s simply no argument that Cupertino’s powerful dual-lens camera tech has its benefits like optical zoom.
