Facebook recently started rolling out its 3D photo feature. This feature converts Portrait shots into a three-dimensional format. Users now have a new feature they can use when sharing memories and moments which adds a fun, lifelike dimension to their photos.

There is a catch though, this feature is only available to people with an iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X and iPhone XS. The iPhone XR has not been mentioned in the list as it does not have a dual camera at the back. However, it does have a Portrait mode and it appears that the 3D feature is supported on an iPhone XR.
