It was expected to be the "affordable" iPhone.
The device, which was unveiled alongside the higher-end iPhone XS and XS Max last month, has been touted to play a key role in driving sales for the United States tech giant, thanks to its more affordable price point and bigger screen; it is Apple's second-largest smartphone so far.
The first iPhone XR pre-orders will arrive starting on Friday, October 26, the launch date for Apple's newest flagship device. But some customers, especially women, have complained on social media that the handsets are getting too hefty for their hands.
A year after leaning on its high-price iPhone X to ignite sales of its best-selling product line, Apple Inc. may need the lower-priced successor-the XR-to perform the same trick. The iPhone XR might cost the least of all the new iPhones, but it does not sacrifice looks at the altar of the price. And the slightly thicker bezels are, again, the type of thing you'd only notice if you were holding an XR and an XS side by side. This design choice indicates that consumers can't really tell the difference between various high-end display resolutions and colour reproduction qualities, and that a large 6-inch design pretty much trumps all other design considerations. "Even though it features 3GB of RAM to the iPhone XS' 4GB, the overall situation here is that you're getting a phone that is damn near identical as far as speed and capability". It is equipped with a single 12-megapixel camera and is powered by the newest A12 Bionic CPU. The rear camera supports three lighting effects: Natural, Studio and Contour.The 7MP front camera also delivered advanced Portrait mode with sophisticated "bokeh" and "Depth Control" for stunning portraits. Certain apps will choose more control options when held in landscape on the Max and the XR, but the regular XS doesn't get them. The smartphone comes with IP67 rating which makes it dust and water resistant. The iPhone XR also has longer rated battery life than the iPhone XS and XS Max.
There are a number of apps that take advantage of the ever-increasing independence of the Apple Watch. That's done so you can charge it on a wireless-charging mat, which also solves the problem of listening to music while charging.
