Apple unveiled new iPhones at its September 2018 event, including the high-end iPhone XS and XS Max as well as the iPhone XR, a more affordable model for those who are strapped for cash. The iPhone XR features the same notch design as the iPhone X from a year ago (Face ID instead of a home button), a new A12 Bionic chipset, an upgraded single lens camera, and a choice of six distinct colour finishes.
The phone will include a 6.1-inch, edge-to-edge LCD screen, which Apple refers to as the Liquid Retina Display, as 9to5Mac reported prior to the Keynote. As a result, the gadget has a larger display than an iPhone 8 Plus while yet being a smaller overall phone. There are three different storage capacities for the phone: 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB. Additionally, there are six distinct colour options: black, white, red, yellow, blue, and coral.

iPhone XR: Release Date and Price
Pre-orders for the iPhone XR opened on Friday, October 19, and on Friday, October 26, the device began to arrive at customers’ doorsteps and in retailers. Installing the Apple App Store app on your iPhone, if you haven’t already, will make pre-ordering the new iPhone XR the simplest process possible.
Actually, you are able to browse all of the iPhone XR’s alternatives and select the model you prefer. You will be given the choice of having it delivered or picked up from your neighborhood Apple Store when you click add to Bag. You don’t necessarily have to travel to Apple to purchase an iPhone XR; instead, check with your mobile phone provider to see if they have any new models available.
The iPhone XR’s price, which makes it the most affordable full-screen iPhone to date, may be its most alluring feature. Prices for the 64GB variant start at £749/$749; prices for the 128GB and 256GB models are £799/$799 and £899/$899, respectively. Since Apple no longer sells the original iPhone X, the XS starts at £999/$999 for 64GB, while the 8 Plus is now the next-cheapest option, costing £699/$799 for 64GB.

iPhone XR: Design and Build
The iPhone XR is famous for looking quite similar to the iPhone X, the new XS, and the XS Max but being (somewhat) less expensive. It has a 6.1-inch screen, which is halfway between the XS and XS Max, but due to slightly bigger bezels, the overall size of the phone is comparable to the larger model. Like other phones, the body is made of aluminum and has a glass back, allowing for wireless charging.
However, you’ll notice that there is only one rear camera lens. The build quality also differs significantly from the XS variants in that it only has an IP67 waterproofing rating as opposed to the IP68 rating for the XS models. Still, that is sufficient to protect it from the majority of spills and dust. Finally, the big one: Apple is adding a dash of colour, much like the iPhone 5c back in the day.
The six finishes that will be offered for the XR at launch are black, white, blue, coral, yellow, and red (as part of Apple’s customary PRODUCT(RED) cooperation). With so many colour choices, it seems like Apple will also sell a clear plastic case to go with the iPhone XR. The information concerning the case was included in the Canadian press release for the iPhone XR but oddly was not included in other versions.
iPhone XR: Display
The most cutting-edge LCD found in a smartphone, the iPhone XR boasts a number of modern improvements that make it bigger than before. Apple claims that in order to extend the display to the device’s edges, new engineering techniques for pixel antialiasing and pixel masking were developed. A new lighting design and smaller-than-ever LEDs were also utilized by Apple to increase the display’s size and enable it to reach the iPhone’s corners.
Apple has given the display a new, Apple-style name: Liquid Retina, in recognition of the cutting-edge LCD technology being used. The iPhone XR’s display is 6.1 inches and has a resolution of 1792 x 828, 326 pixels per inch, and 1.4 million total pixels. As a result, it is less advanced than the OLED displays seen in the iPhone XS models but comparable to earlier iPhone models that used LCDs.
The iPhone XR’s display supports many of Apple’s most recent technological innovations, even though it is not OLED. These include Wide Color for vivid, true-to-life colors, True Tone for matching the display’s white balance to the ambient lighting, and Tap to Wake to activate the display with a single tap. One area where it falls short of the iPhone XS is the contrast ratio, which is only 1400:1. The OLED screen of the XS features a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Although the color saturation and blackness aren’t quite as high, the maximum brightness is still 625 cd/m2
