Apple will today begin accepting pre-orders for the iPhone XR, which was among the trio of devices the company launched last month.

The aluminium handset is available in white, blue, black, coral, and yellow, along with a special Product Red version. It's available with three different storage capacities: 64, 128 and 256GB.

Several weeks after the iPhone XS and XS Max went on sale, we're finally getting closer to the release of the iPhone XR.

In terms of size, the iPhone XR slots between the iPhone XS and XS Max.

This means the iPhone XR will cost almost R6,000 cheaper than Apple's premium iPhone XS, and R8,000 cheaper than the iPhone XS Max.

To pre-order the iPhone XR, buyers can visit Apple's official website, or online retailers Flipkart, Amazon.in and Paytm Mall. The iPhone XR has its own appeal and it is likely to attract a lot of buyers even in a market such as India.

Julian Assange: Wikileaks co-founder takes legal action against Ecuador
A statement said: "Ecuador's measures against Julian Assange have been widely condemned by the human rights community". Ecuador granted him asylum in August 2012, saying it feared his human rights might be violated if he was extradited.

iPhone XR starts at Rs 76,900 for 64GB storage. Apple describes it as 'the most color-accurate LCD in the industry'. The iPhone XR also supports dual SIM (nano SIM + eSIM), but it remains to be seen whether the eSIM option will be available in India as there are limited carriers that support eSIM as of now.

Apple suppliers have reportedly faced issues ramping up supply of the iPhone XR's Liquid Retina LCD display.

The A12 Bionic features a six-core fusion architecture with two performance cores that are up to 15 percent faster, four efficiency cores that are up to 50 percent more efficient meaning an improved battery life. The iPhone XR also supports Face ID and will ship with iOS 12.

The iPhone XR boasts the same internals as the XS series, but comes with just a single-lens camera on the back.

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