IPhone XR now available to buy both online and in stores

IPhone XR now available to buy both online and in stores

While many Apple fans feel they have little incentive to upgrade as their existing handsets are still working well, things may change with the introduction of the iPhone XR, a more affordable model with specifications that are similar to those of the flagship iPhone XS.

Daring Fireball said that the iPhone XR is the best Apple's ever made "dollar for dollar", while TechCrunch compared the device to "a piece of nicely crafted jewelry" with a "depth and sparkle" unmatched by other iPhones. You can get a glimpse of what the mysterious Apple iPhone XR case reportedly looks like here, via 9to5mac.

IHS Markit principal analyst of mobile devices and networks Wayne Lam recently published a report about the significance behind the iPhone XR. With the down payment of Rs 14,999 at Airtel's online store, you can buy the phone.

Currently PayTM Mall and Amazon India have a listing of the iPhone XR on their respective platforms.

While the screen might appear to be the same, the XR's 6.1-inch display is LCD, not OLED as with the XS and XS Max. 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.

Lottery boom in Arizona continues; another $1M ticket sold near Phoenix
All eyes are now on tonight's Powerball jackpot which is an estimated $620 million with a cash option of $354.3 million. If you didn't win the almost $1.6 billion Mega Millions jackpot, $750 million might be a nice consolation prize.

The new iPhone XR is now available to purchase at Vodafone UK.

The result was the 6-inch LCD iPhone Xr, designed with a decade's worth of market feedback and insight to hit the "sweet spot" of smartphone consumer market demand.

So far, iFixit says there are similarities to the iPhone XS when it comes to the iPhone XR opening procedure, such as the use of pentalobe screws, but they were non-colour matched. And oh yes, there is support for wireless charging in there too.

Market research also showed that the iPhone XS series generated much better results than the iPhone 8 series previous year. The company has removed the 3D Touch functionality from the iPhone XR. It is equipped with a single 12-megapixel camera and is powered by the newest A12 Bionic CPU.

The feature was easy to use and, just like with the XS and XS Max, you can adjust the amount of blurriness in the background after the photo has been taken. 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).
