The iPhone Xr looks to target those upgrading to a "Plus"-sized iPhone, but want Apple's latest technologies, except for an OLED display and dual-rear cameras, for example, at a lower price point than the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max".
'IPhone XR makes it possible for even more people to have the great experience of the latest iPhone X technology, in handsome new designs, at a more affordable price'. But rather than using OLED technology, Apple has opted for a standard LCD screen.
CEO Tim Cook showed off the Apple XS, which has a bigger screen than the one on last year's dramatically designed model, the iPhone X. It'll cost about $1,000.
Will iPhone X owners upgrade to the massive iPhone XS Max?
Apple iPhones are renowed for their photography smarts, and the new iPhone XS is unlikely to be any different.
The iPhone XS will start at $999 and the iPhone XS Max will start at $1099. In real time, the processor in the iPhone instantly detects and displays performance metrics-the speed of the ball as it leaves the player's hand, the release angle of each shot, even the position of the player's legs. The massive iPhone Xs Max sets a new display size record with a 6.5-inch display made up of 3.3 million pixels. The phones will have 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch display sizes.
Low-cost phones could help put more devices in circulation to consume Apple's growing set of services like Apple Music, iCloud, and Apple Pay.
The new phones include improved augmented reality features.
Apple appears to have leaked the names of its new iPhone line-up on its website just hours before its live event to launch the products.
The iPhone XR uses the same TrueDepth camera as the iPhone XS.
The XR sports Face ID support, and while it lacks 3D touch, it will sport a new Haptic Touch feature that will allow you to open select apps right from the home screen with a long press.
In the hand, it feels identical to the iPhone X launched past year, and unless you get the new shiny gold flavour, there is no way to tell which model you've got.
What's clever is that as a contact begins to speak their image gets bigger on your display.
Apple has announced the brand new iPhone Xr at its annual iPhone keynote event, joining alongside the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max for the company's 2018 flagship iPhones.
That faster processing power is always welcomed, and given the new features in iOS, you know you'll enjoy the benefits here.
With six colors to choose from, the iPhone Xr is easily the most visually interesting iPhone in years.
The wild card in this year's launch is the iPhone XR. All can be pre-ordered from 19 October and will start shipping the following week. The GPU is up to 50% faster than the GPU in the A11 Bionic processor in the iPhone X. The A12 Bionic chip can handle up to 5 trillion operations per second, compared to the 600 billion for the iPhone X.
