The iPhone XR camera isn’t as advanced as the one in Apple’s pricier XS series, but you’d be hard pressed to see the difference in some stunning images Apple is showing off today.

These pictures were contributed to the “Shot on iPhone” campaign that highlights what these phones can do.

Apple uses software to allow the single camera lens in the iPhone XR to produce bokeh images, with the foreground in focus and a blurry background. The XS series’ camera use two lenses for this job.

The telephoto lens in the more expensive XS models gives them greater capabilities to capture images of distant objects. But that did not stop the photographers Apple chose for “Shot on iPhone XR” from shooting subjects at any distance.
