Apple new iPhone Xs goes on sale on Friday, boasting a new big screen version called the XS Max, and a much improved camera system. 

Former White House Photographer Pete Souza has released the first images taken using the new phone, showing off its new camera capabilities.

He took these shots exclusively for Dailymail.com around Washington DC, and any editing was done on the phone using Apple’s tools.

‘Smart phones have turned everyone into a photographer but they haven’t necessarily turned everyone into a “good” photographer,’ he told Dailymail.com

‘At the same time, the smart phone has also turned everyone into a visual journalist giving us at times an eyewitness account from breaking news events.’ 

Souza, who was the Chief Official White House photographer for U.S. Presidents Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama, and the former director of the White House Photography Office,  recently said he has taken approximately two million pictures of President Barack Obama.

He captured the Commander-in-Chief in all situations – whether it is relaxing with his family or sitting in the situation room, waiting to hear the outcome of the May 2011 mission to kill Osama Bin Laden.

His new book, ‘SHADE: A Tale of Two Presidents,’ is now available for preorder.

Apple unveiled its new handsets last week, and launched pre-sales for its hotly-anticipated new flagship smartphones on Friday.

The £999 ($999) iPhone XS and £1,099 ($1,099) XS Max are now battling it out to be crowned Apple’s fastest selling smartphone of all time and will finally arrive in consumer’s hands on Friday.

Apple says the phones are ‘more waterproof’ than their predecessors and the cameras are ‘better than ever before.’ 

The XS and XS Max feature some significant display upgrades. The 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max has a Super Retina display and a resolution of 2,688 x 1,242.

Both phones have improved speakers, and Face ID is now speedier, thanks to new algorithms, allowing users to more quickly unlock their device with just their face.
