  16. What makes the XR different than the XS or XS Max?
    Reply

    The iPhone XR is built with aluminum, rather than the stainless steel as seen on the other two phones. It also features a single 12-MP camera on the back, as opposed to the dual-camera setup seen on the XS and XS Max, and uses a "Liquid Retina" (LCD) display, rather than OLED. The iPhone XR still features the same lightning-fast A12 Bionic chip and software features as the other two phones, however, making this budget-friendly iPhone an excellent option, and hardly a subpar phone!
