3 Vastly Improved Single-Lens Camera
Year after year, Apple’s new iPhone models feature the most advanced camera hardware available to at the time. And while the iPhone XR retains a seemingly unchanged single-lens camera around back, we were surprised yet again when Apple revealed the setup’s impressive new spate of features.
As noted on stage, the iPhone XR’s single-lens camera is essentially the same wide-angle camera employed on Apple’s iPhone XS — a 12 MP sensor fearing Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). While its single-lens design means the iPhone XR lacks a telephoto lens like its premium iPhone XS counterparts, it’s worth noting that the handset will be able to simulate portrait mode photos using Apple’s advanced new software and Depth of Field settings.
