All three new models share the same A1 Bionic processor, so they share the same computer brain. All of the new iPhones feature class leading speed. The primary differences are in the screen size. The largest is the 6.5 OLED XS Max followed by the most affordably priced 6.1 LED XR and the smallest screen is a 5.8 OLED XS. The XS Max has the largest iPhone screen offered to date, but is actually the same size as the iPhone 8, they just removed the bezel to increase the screen size.All three models have a 7MP front facing camera. Both XS models have dual 12MP rear facing telephoto cameras.The XR has a single 12MP camera, and is not telephoto. The XS and XS Max has a stainless steel cases and the XR has an aluminum body.The XR is the lowest priced of the bunch, so it doesn’t have all of the bells and whistles of the XS models.The XS and XS Max are available in space grey, gold and silver. The XR is available in coral, white, yellow, black andblue.
All the new phones have the notch which was added to the previous generation.Also Apple completely removed the home button. The OLED is referred to as Super Retina and it lives up to its name sake, its super bright and vivid a nice upgrade from the iPhone X.The OLED colors are more vibrant and the black is natural and wider viewing angles.The LED screen on the XR is definitely not as bright or vivid, but still looks really good.
As for battery life the XS Max features the largest battery in the lineup, but the XR had the longest run time.The OLED screen is probably the culprit, but overall the batter life on the XS Max and XR is excellent.The XS battery life is very good, but slightly less than some of the competitors. If your sole goal is battery life than the XR is the way to go.

The primary difference between the XS, XS Max and XR are the OLED screen and the dual telescoping rear cameras.So depending on you need for the brightest sharpest screen and upgraded camera it may be worth the couple of dollars to upgrade.
