IPhone XR review: hands on with Apple's entry-level new iPhone

Apple 2018 Event Recap: iPhone Xs, Xs Max, Xr, Apple Watch

Apple Is Ditching the iPhone's Headphone Dongle—But You Can Buy It for $9

It has a lower-resolution 6.1-inch LCD screen and a single rear-facing camera, but otherwise delivers on the specifications of the Xs series. One major upgrade is Apple's 7nm A12 Bionic, powering the trio. We have a whole post on pre-ordering your iPhone XS or XS Max. The iPhone Xr is coming later than the other devices, and will be available to pre-order from October 19th, with the phone arriving a week after on October 26th.

"Additionally starting price for the 5.8" iPhone Xs remains the same as of its predecessor.

The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max improve in several areas of performance over the iPhone X. We get a brand new processor on a smaller node.

Yesterday Apple announced the iPhone XR, a lower-cost new iPhone that sits beneath the American maker's new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max flagships. The price will start from RMB 6499 and is available in six colours - Yellow, White, Coral, Black, Blue and Red.

If you're clinging to wired headphones, you might not like what Apple's doing with its new iPhones. Here's how you can pre-order yours right now.

Design-wise TechRadar's Gareth Beavis says that next to the iPhone XS the new iPhone XR is "not quite as attractive", pointing out its thicker bezels and drawing your attention to the fact that its edges aren't made out of the same premium-feeling materials.

As such, Gareth concludes that providing you don't want loads of advanced features, no "bells and whistles", then the camera system on the iPhone XR "will do you just fine".

Release date: The iPhone XR will be available in three different variants - 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.

If you've followed Wednesday's announcements, there's nothing new here: The iPhone XS starts at $999, while the iPhone XS Max starts at $1,099.
