IPhone XR first hands-on impressions hit the web

19 October 2018

Apple invited me to check out the iPhone XR for a brief test drive before preorders start tonight. Despite its similarities, this isn't the iPhone 5C all over again; instead, the iPhone XR feels very much like a premium device, just at a much lower cost than the iPhone XS and XS Max.

Well, let's not pretend that is has everything that the XS has, because it doesn't.

A video by Tyler Stalman mentions a couple other strengths of the XR, including that its LCD display looks excellent, and that even though the device is technically heavier than the XS due to being larger, it actually feels lighter in the hand relative to what he expected. Be sure to check out our dedicated iPhone XR price comparison at the bottom of this page for the early best contract and handset offers. Check the table below to find out what time iPhone XR will be available for pre-ordering. In comparison, the iPhone XS starts at $999 Dollars and the iPhone XS Max starts at $1,099 USD.

The victims were standing on the tracks, watching the burning of Ravan's effigy, according to reports. The smoke from the crackers and effigy burning had brought down visibility as well.

Apple says the iPhone XR will be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models in white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (PRODUCT) RED starting at £749 from apple.com and Apple Stores.

Apple started sales of iPhone XS and XS Max long before iPhone XR, a natural move to push as many units of the pricey iPhones before the cheaper variant rocks the shelves. Some reports from last month have suggested that Apple changed suppliers due to manufacturing issues with the iPhone XR.

In the camera department, the iPhone XR sports a single rear 12-megapixel camera sensor with a 6P lens, f/1.8 aperture, OIS, Focus Pixels, and a quad-LED True Tone flash. Like its 2019 siblings, it's powered by the A12 Bionic chip. The Apple Online Store is open and ready for preorder business. The iPhone XR also supports Face ID and will ship with iOS 12.
