Apple's new iPhone XS boasts a 12-megapixel dual-camera that can shoot 4K video with slo-mo and time-lapse modes, and the company is eager to show off its video skills.

Apple posted a video to YouTube on Wednesday titled "Shot on iPhone XS" that gives us a taste of what video on the iPhone XS actually looks like. Apple uses ingredients like water, soap, steel wool and special lighting to create a science-experiment-esque video that shows 4K, time-lapse, and slo-mo video shot on the iPhone XS.
