The big news. Apple has just announced the new iPhone XR, which is looking like it will be the default iPhone for many people this season. Not only does it have a very similar design to the more expensive iPhone XS model, it has many of the same features for a considerably lower price. |
The iPhone XR comes in six different colors, including very nice-looking coral and blue options. It lacks the stainless steel frame of the XS, but it still has an aluminum frame and glass sandwich design. It also has a 6.1-inch LCD instead of an OLED panel, but it stretches from the top of the phone to the bottom, with a cutout for Apple’s Face ID login system.
Inside, the XR has Apple’s new A12 Bionic processor, which is the same chip in the more expensive models. It also has IP67 water resistance, a battery that lasts an hour and a half longer than last year’s iPhone 8 Plus, and a single 12-megapixel camera that is capable of portait-style blurring effects. In addition, the XR supports dual-SIM features through its nano SIM and e-SIM capabilities.
The XR will be available starting in October for $749 for a model with 64GB of storage. There will also be options for 128GB and 256GB of storage.
