[First Cut] iPhone XR: The "Affordable" New iPhone

Saturday, 27 Oct, 2018

With this deal, you can get the iPhone XR for $10 over 36 months. The 2018 device is nearly at a par with the iPhone XS, Apple's flagship product, which will likely help Apple convince more buyers this time. We would say that this is the best we have seen an unconventionally colored iPhone look - we have a soft corner for the blue and the red, though! The body of the iPhone XR is IP67 rated for water and dust resistance. With the down payment of Rs 14,999 at Airtel's online store, you can buy the phone.

So, the iPhone XR is here, and because of its more affordable pricing, and the larger screen it carries than the iPhone Xs, it should prove to be one of the most popular iPhone models in 2018 and 2019. But the company's third model, i.e. iPhone X R cell will start from today in Japan, Australia and other European markets including India. The phone's selfie camera, however, is pretty much the same as its counterparts on the XS and XS Max, Portrait Lighting options, Face unlock and all. That's enough to get you 64GB of internal storage.

Pre-purchase orders have been available since October 19.

Analyst Kuo Ming-chi said in a research note early this week that iPhone XR shipment is "more stable" because it will drive more customers to upgrade than the iPhone 8 series over time, even though pre-order demand has been lower than that for iPhone XS models. There is no 3D touch support in it.

Hall raised his Apple December quarter earnings-per-share forecast to $5.05 from $4.92 as the higher-priced model is more profitable for the smartphone maker. Would you be willing to get one for yourself? It will especially attract consumers who have been waiting to trade up from their iPhone 8 or an older iPhone. Pressing hard on app icons and certain interface elements enabled additional options that are useful, but ultimately, it ended up being a feature that few users knew about and actively used in their day-to-day activities.

In the camera department, the iPhone XR houses a single 12-megapixel rear camera sensor with f/1.8 aperture, Focus Pixels, a 6P lens, and a quad-LED True Tone flash. Yes, the price of the base iPhone has bumped up by $50 (the iPhone 8 cost $700 past year, and the XR costs $750 now).
