The new phone is available in purple, yellow, green, black, white, and (Product)ᴿᴱᴰ. Both phones have a similar display with Liquid Retina HD display, Wide color display, True tone display, Haptic touch, and 3D touch.

One main difference between the two phones is with the outer design and shell. Although both phones have a glass and aluminum design, the new iPhone 11 has a two meter water resistance for up to 30 minutes whereas the iPhone XR has one meter water resistance for up to 30 minutes.

The XR had a single 12MP camera, and the 11 has dual 12MP Ultra Wide and Wide cameras. The 11 also has night mode, allowing photo captures during the night, as well as auto adjustments and 2x optical zoom out.

The XDR display gives more brightness to the screen while keeping the same contrast and pixel resolution. The matte glass back in the 11 Pro is said to be the toughest material placed in an iPhone yet. Surrounded by the matte glass is a square bezel which contains the cameras.

In the XS, there are Dual 12MP Wide and telephoto cameras and there are Triple 12MP Ultra Wide, Wide, and Telephoto cameras with Night mode as well as 12MP camera with 4K video recording up to 60 fps.
