iPhone camera specs: iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR
There are many people who use their iPhone to capture moments and post to social media and whenever the new iPhones are announced, people are curious about the camera specs.
iPhone XS camera
Both the XS and the larger XS Max feature two rear-facing 12-megapixel cameras, one wide-angle camera and the other telephoto.
iPhone XR camera
The iPhone XR model will have only one 12-megapixel rear-facing camera which is just fine for everyday use. The telephoto option is for those who want to take better pictures from longer distances.

According to Apple, the XS and XS Max are both water resistant to a depth of 2 meters for up to 30 minutes. The iPhone XR is water resistant up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes. We don’t encourage you to take your new iPhone on a diving expedition, but you might not have to worry that much if you dropped your iPhone in the toilet or wanted to take a few selfies underwater at the pool.
