Shot on iPhone XR: Real-World Photos and Portraits With Depth Control From New York City

by John_A

Apple invited MacRumors to New York City this week to pick up an iPhone XR review unit. While there, we spent the day testing its camera and Portrait Mode with Depth Control with help from some volunteer New Yorkers.

The photos below were shot with the iPhone XR’s default Camera app on iOS 12, and are unedited beyond being resized for this gallery. For some photos, we took advantage of standard features of the Camera app, such as Depth Control and manually adjusting the exposure of photos by tapping on a focus point.

While the iPhone XR does not have a telephoto lens like the iPhone XS and XS Max, the single wide-angle lens captures an impressive amount of detail. And with Depth Control, Apple has taken Portrait Mode to a whole new level, resulting in photos of people that are comparable to those shot with a DSLR camera.

We’ll have more impressions about the iPhone XR cameras in the days to come, but after one day of testing, we can safely say that most people should be more than happy with the quality of photos shot on this device.















iPhone XR launches tomorrow, Friday, October 26. Stay tuned to MacRumors for continued coverage of the device.
