How to book iPhone XR - cheaper alternative to iPhone XS, XS Max

Apple iPhone Xr – South African pricing

iPhone XR available for pre-order from Friday

From a wide range of colour options to bezel-less notched display and fastest Apple chipset, the iPhone XR is still in the big leagues when compared against the Android rivals.

Nearly a month after unveiling the Apple iPhone XR alongside the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, the company now started accepting the pre-orders for the iPhone XR. It features 6.1-inch liquid retina display with a resolution of 828 pixels by 1792 pixels at a PPI of 326 pixels per inch.

Several weeks after the iPhone XS and XS Max went on sale, we're finally getting closer to the release of the iPhone XR. The high-end iPhone XR will hit retail shelves on October 26 in India and other major global markets including the US, UK, UAE etc.

The iPhone XR is available in six colours: black, white, blue, yellow, coral and (PRODUCT) RED, while pricing starts at $1029 CAD for 64GB, $1099 for 128GB and $1239 for 256GB models.

Despite there only being a single 12-megapixel camera on the rear glass case, the XR is fully capable of adding depth effects to your photos.

Cleveland Browns show belief in Nick Chubb with trade of Carlos Hyde
Chubb hasn't caught a single pass this year, so you'll likely be relying on him in the exact role Hyde held prior to the trade. That makes all the sense in the world, considering the running back position is built on explosive plays and youth.

"It delivers all day battery life, lasting up to an hour and a half longer than iPhone 8 Plus", Apple said.

Apple invited me to check out the iPhone XR for a brief test drive this week.

In the United Kingdom you can get iPhone XR with the protection of AppleCare+ and have the opportunity to upgrade to a new iPhone every year. It is priced at Rs 76,900 with 64GB storage, the 128GB storage variant will cost Rs 81,900 and the 256GB storage model costs Rs 91,900. The iPhone XR has the very same A12 Bionic chip on the inside and the very same, improved Face ID sensor on the front as the more expensive XS phones.

There are just three days left until pre-orders of the iPhone XR commence, and you'll just have to wait around a week more when the sales actually begin. The second of the iPhone XR videos is called Spectrum.
