The new iPhone lineup ships with the best cameras Apple has ever installed in a smartphone. Sample photos shown off during yesterday’s keynote gave us a preview of its jaw-dropping capabilities, and there’s more.

Apple’s new “Shot on iPhone XS” video showcases what the company’s new camera is capable of when shooting in slo-mo, super-sharp 4K, and time-lapse.

The iPhone is the world’s most popular camera. It earned that crown by delivering some of the best smartphone shooters year after year. Just like iPhone X, the new iPhone XS lineup features two 12-megapixel camera on its back — only this time, they’re even better.

That’s thanks to the blazing-fast A12 Bionic chip with a new image signal processor, new sensors and lenses, and an impressive new feature that Apple dubs “Smart HDR.” We’ve seen what it can do with photos, but what about videos?

‘Shot on iPhone XS’

The video below provides us with a “first look” at video shot on the iPhone XS. In just under two minutes, Apple demonstrates what its new camera is capable of when shooting in slo-mo, 4K, and time-lapse.

Apple didn’t just take its new phones to the park to made this video. Instead, it ran a series of fascinating experiments with liquids and materials to create beautiful effects. It also provides a peek at how its experiments were created.

The iPhone XS lineup boasts even faster camera performance, two times as many Focus Pixels, improved low-light performance, and more. It also packs four microphones that allow videos to be shot with improved stereo sound.

As you can see above, the results are staggering. If you’re a big smartphone photographer, you have to agree that iPhone XS is worth the upgrade — even if it is wildly expensive.
