The lowest priced iPhone of this generation will be available for pre-order starting today (that is, October 19) through brick-and-mortar Apple stores as well as directly from Apple's own official Indian online store.
With the offer, new Hala customers will enjoy 10 GB of free data every month for three months and new Shahry and Qatarna customer will enjoy unlimited data for 30 days. It's not all bad news though: one camera advantage of the XR over the XS is that you don't need to back up as far when taking Portrait photos since there's only one lens being used, and all depth recognition is being done via software rather than the dual-lens hardware. It can also be purchased with 128GB or 256GB of storage for additional charges.
Prices for the Apple iPhone XR will begin from Rs 76,900, which will be for the base 64GB variant. The 5.8-inch iPhone XS and 6.5-inch XS Max uses OLED panels.
One common message across multiple videos is that the iPhone XR doesn't feel at all like a budget phone. It comes powered by the all-new 7nm Apple A12 Bionic chip featuring a 4-core GPU, 6-core CPU, and a dedicated 8-core Neural Engine.
And it also comes in more colours - six to be exact, reminiscent of the iPhone 5C from 2013: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (Product) RED.
While everyone is talking about how great and expensive the new iPhone XS and XS Max are, the silent spectator of it all is ready to steal the limelight. On the front, the handset gets a 7-megapixel selfie camera with an improved Portrait mode, f/2.2 aperture, an IR camera, and a diffractive beam splitter. New Depth Control allows users to adjust the depth of field both in real-time preview and post-capture to create portraits with a handsome bokeh effect.
