It's getting way harder to choose the right iPhone.

With three new iPhones launching this year, choosing the right one might be harder than ever.

The iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR may look similar at first glance, but when you dig deeper you’ll find that the subtle differences actually add up to distinct experiences from each one.

The first thing most people care about is size. How big is the screen, and will the phone fit in your pocket?

This year, you’ll find that the new iPhones are actually quite large, with the biggest being the iPhone XS Max. It’s the largest iPhone ever made, so if you’re the type of person that loves typing and scrolling on a gigantic screen — this is probably the one for you.

The other big consideration for most people is the camera. On this year’s models, you’ll find that the new iPhone XS and XS Max both come with the same 12-megapixel dual-camera. This ultimately leads to better photos. One of the cameras is wide-angle, and the other is a telephoto. This means you can shoot objects up close or far away (like a sunset) without a hitch.

On the iPhone XR, the camera is not quite as nice. It’s a single lens, 12-megapixel wide-angle camera. You’ll still get ridiculously pretty photos, and you’ll even get Apple’s fancy portrait mode, you’ll notice that the camera strains when shooting super far-away objects. Still, it’s worth saying that for most people, this camera will suffice.

$And finally there’s price. These are some of the best available phones on the market, so they don’t come cheap. Still, if you’re on a budget, you might want to check out the iPhone XR, which starts at $749. The flagship iPhone XS model starts at a slightly higher $999. And if money is no object, you’ll probably want to go for the pricey iPhone XS Max, which starts at $1099 and peaks at a $1,499.
