iPhone XR Cameras

Advanced camera system

Say hello to a new era of photography.


Adjustable depth of field.

Take a great portrait and make it even more amazing with Depth Control, which lets you adjust the depth of field to blur the background as much or as little as you want.

Enhanced Portrait mode selfies.

The TrueDepth camera generates a precise depth map to keep you in focus against a blurred background. Depth Control lets you adjust the depth of field after you shoot.

More low‑light detail.

The camera sensor features deeper, larger pixels. Deeper to improve image fidelity. And larger to allow more light to hit the sensor. The result? Even better low‑light photos.

Sharper action shots.

Faster sensors, Smart HDR and zero shutter lag combine to let you freeze a moment in time with more highlight and shadow detail.


4K video and wider stereo playback.

iPhone XR shoots the highest‑quality video of any smartphone. With better low‑light performance. Extended dynamic range in videos up to 30 fps. Stereo recording. And stereo playback with wider sound separation.

A picture is worth a trillion operations.

The iPhone XR camera system harnesses the unprecedented power of the Neural Engine and its ability to perform five trillion operations per second. Together with the Apple‑designed ISP, it works like the world’s fastest photographer’s assistant to help turn your pictures into showstoppers.

Here’s just a fraction of what the camera system considers even before you shoot.

More control over your image.

Portrait mode captures depth information that lets you adjust the depth of field and add creative Portrait Lighting effects.

All‑new Depth Control.

When editing portrait photos, simply slide to adjust the depth of field.

Portrait Lighting.

In Portrait mode, just swipe to try different lighting effects — before or after you shoot.
