Later sale date: While the iPhone XS devices go on sale September 21 (preorders start September 14), you won't be able to buy the iPhone XR until October 26 (preorders start October 19).

Battery life: We can't say for sure until we test all three new iPhones, but the iPhone XR might have longer battery life than the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

In terms of price, the iPhone XR retails for less than the iPhone XS, costing $749 to pick up at launch.

That being said, on its own he notes it "could be mistaken for the iPhone X of last year".

Both factors that should conserve energy in comparison.

In other words, Apple isn't treating the iPhone XR as some shabby relation. Even though it is cheaper, according to Apple, iPhone Xr has the best LCD display ever used on a phone.
