IPhone XR hands-on: Colorful phones make a great first impression

Apple Suppliers Continue to Remain Cautious – Believe the iPhone XR Might Not Be a ‘Home Run’

According to Apple, it lasts up to 1.5 hours longer than an iPhone 8 Plus.

The retailer has an agreement with FNB, whereby the XR can be bought with an FNB credit card for R499 a month over 37 months for the 64GB version, R535 a month for the 128GB version, and R610 a month for the 256GB version. It is actually pretty challenging, in fact, to tell the difference between the iPhone X and the new iPhone XS, even when you have both the phones side by side.

The iPhone XR is available in more than 50 countries and territories.

It's also worth mentioning that Apple's iPhone XR lineup will introduce a bit of much-needed color into the iPhone family. The new iPhone XR features a 6.1-inch (1792×828 pixel resolution) Retina LCD display.

The iPhone Xr is made from aerospace-grade aluminium and is available in a variety of colourful finishes.

In a note to investors, Kuo also said Apple would continue to offer 5.8 and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones in 2019, along with one 6.1-inch LCD model.

The phone will be available in blue, yellow, red, black, white and coral similar to the iPhone 5C in 2013. Additionally, the iPhone XR is IP67 rated for dust and water resistance.

The iPhone XR pre-bookings listing is now live on IndiaiStore, the official offline partner for Apple in India.

This phone features plenty of new technology including a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina edge-to-edge display, wireless charging and new A12 Bionic processor which is now outperforming all of its Android rivals in speed tests. It is powered by the A12 Bionic chipset and brings 3GB of RAM as per a benchmark site. Once you get your oder in, devices are slated to ship (and appear in retail stores) beginning next Friday on October 26.

The iPhone XR with 12MP rear camera and 7MP front sensor claims to have better low light performance.
