After weeks of heavy rumors, Apple announced three new iPhones on Wednesday: The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. These phones are updates to last year’s iPhone X, 8 and 8 Plus.

Besides their name and price range, there are a lot of differences between the three. But there are also a lot of similarities. For instance, each phone runs on iOS 12, features the same dual-band 802.11ac for wi-fi, quad-core GPU, Bluetooth 5.0, the same 7MP, and a f/2.2 camera capable of 4K and 60fps. They even share the same 7MP front-facing camera.

However, there are some specs that only the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max. Both phones have the same dual rear cameras, which are wide-angle, 12MP, f/1.8, 1.4μm pixel size and telephoto, 12MP, f/2.4. The iPhone XR, however, only has the single wide-angle, 12MP camera. Another difference is both Xs and Xs Max have the same Super Retina OLED screen, whereas the XR has a new Liquid Retina LCD display.iphone xs max xr specs

The iPhone Xs Max weighs 208g (7.34 ounces) at 157.5 x 77.4 x 7.7mm (6.2 x 3.05 x 0.30 inches).
