Apple Suppliers Continue to Remain Cautious – Believe the iPhone XR Might Not Be a ‘Home Run’

But its price - starting at $749 (£749, AU$1,229) - is considerably less, too. YouTuber Sara Dietschy points out that the Portrait Mode on iPhone XR allows you to capture a larger field of view than on the XS and XS Max. The presence of Face ID also means that the iPhone XR does not carry over the fingerprint sensor from the previous generations of iPhones. Taking a look at the iPhone XR's specs and price, the device arguably offers prospective buyers more bang for the buck than most iPhone models we've seen in recent years.

Apart from India, the iPhone XR will go on sale in dozens of countries starting October 26. Indeed, the main distinction between the iPhone XR and the XS is that the former ships with an LCD display as opposed to an OLED display.

"The new iPhone XR has a gorgeous new aerospace-grade aluminium and glass enclosure that has IP67 protection from liquids and dust, long all-day battery life and comes in six attractive finishes".

The iPhone XR still costs an eye-watering INR 76,900 and comes in a wider array of eye-catching colors.

This phone features plenty of new technology including a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina edge-to-edge display, wireless charging and new A12 Bionic processor which is now outperforming all of its Android rivals in speed tests.

Ahead of tonight's pre-order, Apple lifted an embargo this morning on some hands-on videos, which were shared on YouTube by various channels and media publications. It is powered by the A12 Bionic chipset and brings 3GB of RAM as per a benchmark site. As per communication by Airtel, the iPhone XR will be delivered to pre-ordering customers on October 26. The device comes with an Aluminum frame and glass back body.

For selfies, the iPhone XR sports a 7MP selfie camera with a f/2.2 aperture along with a TrueDepth camera for FaceID.
