IPhone XR: Apple unveils iPhone XR starting at £749

Saturday, 15 Sep, 2018

The iPhone XR, the cheapest of the three, is created to appeal to more price-conscious consumers, who have been reluctant to pay for higher-priced iPhones in recent years.

If you want to connect your wired headphones to your shiny new iPhone, you'll now need to pay £9 for a headphone adapter. It's purportedly the most color accurate LCD display in the industry, offering True Tone and wide color support.

It follows previous rumours that the company will introduce a larger screened 6.5in iPhone - allegedly the XS Max - alongside the new 5.8in display iPhone XS, which is the same size screen as last year's iPhone X.

Apple has announced a more affordable new entry in its new iPhone range, the iPhone Xr.

With the XR's notable features and specifications out of the way, let's talk pricing.

iPhone XR release date: When does the iPhone XR come out?

The XR on the surface looks every bit as nice as the XS and XS Max, but upon closer inspection in my hand I could spot the areas in which Apple compromised for cost reasons. He said Apple has received clearance from the Food and Drug Administration for its new ECG app, and that the data will be protected by encryption on the Watch and in the cloud. The prices are relatively lesser than iPhone XS and iPhone XS which are available at starting price of Rs 99,900 and Rs 1,09,900. It also boasts a 1792 by 828 resolution at 326 PPI (pixels per inch) and is described by the company as having a "Liquid Retina" display.

Creative Strategies analyst Carolina Milanesi said some iPhone buyers might hold off buying Apple's most expensive smartphone this year, with a survey of 955 smartphone users finding fewer than one in five would have paid for a bigger version of the iPhone X. If the user is immobile for more than a minute after the notification, the watch can automatically call for help "and send a message along with location to emergency contacts", Apple says.

You'll be able to preorder the iPhone XS and XS Max here.

With a 6.5-inch screen, it's set to be one of the largest smartphones on the market.

The XR is available for pre-order this month and will ship in October.

The new 6-core A12 Bionic chip has 2 performance cores up to 15 percent faster and 40 percent lower power, and 4 efficiency cores with up to 50 percent lower power.

The largest screen Apple has produced represents the firm's attempt to feed consumer appetite for watching and recording videos, as well as taking photos.

Given the XR's budget nature, it's smaller than its Xs and Xs Max cousins, and it only houses a single 12mp rear camera.
