Apple's cheaper iPhone XR rocks bright colours

We know that at the heart of the new phones - including the iPhone XR surprisingly - is Apple's new A12 Bionic processor and improved LTE chips to promote a faster LTE connection.

In India, the iPhone XR, the budget version of the new iPhones, starts at a price of Rs 76,900.

The iPhone XS will cost you €1,179, the iPhoneXR, the price will be €879, and the iPhone XSMax, which is the most expensive, will set you back €1,279.

The iPhone Xs Max really excels over the iPhone 8 Plus in the display department.

The investors reasoned that doing so would pose no threat to Apple, because the company makes the bulk of its money selling devices, not from how much people use them. Further, the rear wide-angle lens, True Tone flash, and True Depth camera on the iPhone XR are identical to those found on the iPhone XS, so the only difference from a photography point of view appears to be the lack of the second telephoto lens. While consumers' desires have changed since Apple CEO Steve Jobs put a charge into the smartphone industry in January 2007, would a 6.5-inch iPhone been produced if Jobs had not succumbed to pancreatic cancer?

It's gaining strength and could even be upgraded to Category 5 before it makes landfall early Friday, according to forecasts. Locals of one seaside resort in North Carolina are maintaining relative calm as they gird for Hurricane Florence.

Overall, then, TechRadar's Gareth Beavis concludes that the iPhone XR is likely going to be Apple's "volume driver" over the next year in terms of sales, and especially so in the Asian market, which may go to explain the slightly odd, larger than XS screen.

Overall, Beavis feels that "the "cheap" iPhone certainly doesn't feel that way", and he came away from its design and build quality impressed. With Apple killing it, the iPhone X becomes the shortest living iPhone that Apple has ever introduced. That said, the iPhone XS / XS Max, as well as the iPhone XR can record stereo sounds.

On the other hand, iPhone XS Max packs 6.5 inch Super Retina OLED display with the resolution of 1242×2688 pixels.

Battery life: We can't say for sure until we test all three new iPhones, but the iPhone XR might have longer battery life than the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The price will start from RMB 6499 and is available in six colours - Yellow, White, Coral, Black, Blue and Red. Features like post-editing Depth Control and Smart HDR will also be supported on the iPhone XR.
