Apple's cheaper iPhone XR rocks bright colours

If you're willing to deal with smaller prepaid operators, you can typically save even more while not having to jump through as many hoops.

Arguably the most notable new product: the iPhone Xr delivers iPhone X style with a price cut and some caveats.

What about the iPhone 6 and iPhone SE?

Update, Sept. 13 at 5:20 a.m. PT: Adds new iPhone XS battery replacement pricing and 2019 pricing for older iPhones.

The first one is about the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR and showcases all the important features of the handsets - displays, cameras and design. Since that phone lasted longer than the iPhone X in CNET's looping video tests(in airplane mode), we at least have an inkling that the XR could outlast Apple's more expensive iPhones.


Release date: The iPhone XR will be available in three different variants - 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. But hey! There's IP68 water resistance on offer here, and a new Gold color in addition to Silver and Space Gray.

The iPhone XR has a larger screen than the iPhone XS and the same A12 Bionic processor as the iPhone XS Max (which costs hundreds more). The iPhone XS Max is very similar but it's essentially a "Plus" version of iPhone XS complete with a stunning 6.5-inch OLED panel. The four-core GPU also boasts up to 50 percent faster performance.

"Apple doesn't have to prove anything, other than that they are willing to segment the market more", Technalysis Research chief analyst Bob O'Donnell said, while pointing out that the company will likely be "offering a wider array of choices". The XS comes with a better chip under the hood and is more waterproof, but for most people, the differences will feel incremental.

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. Buyers can head to offline Apple stores to directly buy the new devices from September 21st. Devices will start to land in consumers hands a week later on Friday, September 21. Its Pre-orders will begin on 19 October band the phone will start shipping on 26 October.
