    So the XS is far too expensive but the XR is slightly more affordable. One of the key differences it the camera.

    Is the camera (or better, photo quality) much different on the XR compares to the 6S?

    The 6s has the better camera. Its unlikely that a iphone from late 2018 has a better camera than the brand new 2015 model iphone.

    Yes, the camera on the Xr is a considerable upgrade over the 6s.

    Do you ever really know with Apple? It's no surprise they do these types of things to push other models.

    The Xr will have a MUCH better camera than the 6s. It even has a significant better camera than the iphone X.

    Looking at Tech specs, all Apple are listing is "12MP camera". This is why I asked.

    My motorola g6 plus has a 16mp camera and my iphone 8 a 12 mp shooter. The iphone pics are much better than the moto g6 plus. Its not about numbers.

    12MP but I believe it is using the same ~30% larger image sensor found in the iPhone Xs wide angle camera. That Paired with the A12 Neural Engine & ISP, the camera on the Xr should out perform the 6s in every way. I would say it will likely even outclass the 7 in just about everything except optical zoom.

    I am curious what kind of responses OP thought he was going to get.

    The XR should beat every previous iPhone camera (including the X and 8 Plus) in everything but optical zoom, although it remains to be seen if Apple can do portrait mode well with a single lens or if older dual lens camera will still beat the XR when it comes to the quality of portrait mode photos. Either way with it's larger sensor, optical image stabilization and more advanced ISP (Image Signal Processor in the A12 chip) it will definitely take better photos than the 6s (although admittedly you may not notice much difference in brightly lit outdoor photos, but in low light or "challenging" lighting the XR should take vastly superior photos every time).
