iPhone XS, XS Max, XR Comparison: What Are The Differences With The New iPhones? (Apple Keynote 2018)

During the company’s 2018 keynote, Apple announced three new iPhones. Both the iPhone XS and XS Max are releasing this September, while the XR will launch in October. Here’s how they differ, including a look at their key specs.

The XS and XS Max are packed with new features, the most notable of which all have to do with both phones’ cameras. Both mobile devices come equipped with a dot projector, IR camera, and RCB camera, as well as Smart HDR to ensure you capture the best possible pictures when your subject is moving or bathed in shadow. You’ll also be able to adjust the depth of field of your pictures after you’ve taken them.

Both the XS and XS Max have surgical grade stainless steel chassis, putting them both at higher price points than the XR. The XS has a starting price of $1000 while the XS Max–with its larger screen–starts at $1100. Pre-orders for both start on September 14, and release on September 21.

With the XR, you’ll be losing a few features. Even though you’ll also be able to adjust depth of field with the XR, the phone only has one rear camera. The XR uses 7000 series aerospace-grade aluminum instead of stainless steel, and has a less vibrant LCD screen–as opposed to the XS and XS Max OLED screens.

These sacrifices make for cheaper prices, though. The iPhone XR starts at $750. Pre-orders won’t be available until October 19, and the phone will officially release on October 26.
