iPhone XR is an unusual product from Apple in decades, similar to iPhone 5C. We all know that iPhone 5C has brought a hype for its colorful design and cheap price. The same strategy is being followed for iPhone Xr. The Apple’s latest iPhone Xs and Xs Max are the flagship model this year and the third iPhone is for those who want to buy the iPhone at an affordable price.
Let’s take a look at iPhone Xr
Design and Display:
The iPhone XR feels like an iPhone X, at least from the front. It’s large, with a 6.1-inch display and familiar cutout at the top of the screen for FaceID recognition. It weighs just a few grams more than the XS. There’s no home button, meaning there’s no TouchID but you can get the same FaceID from iPhone Xs.
The Material used in iPhone Xr and iPhone Xs are completely different and has variety of colors. The most durable front glass ever in a smartphone. Precision-machined, aerospace-grade aluminum bands are words used by Apple at the launch.
Processing and Memory:
iPhone Xr shares the similar chipset of latest iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max, which is A12 Bionic and has the similar processing efficiency. This is the smartest, most powerful chip in a smartphone, with our next-generation Neural Engine. For amazing augmented reality experiences. Incredible portraits with Depth Control. And speed and fluidity in everything you do.
iPhone Xr comes in 3 different memory variant 64GB, 128 GB and 256 GB and it does not come in 512 GB as iPhone Xs or Xs Max.
This is the segment were Apple played well in making the best of it even with a single camera system on the back. On the back, it has the 12-megapixel wide-angle camera with ƒ/1.8 aperture. It is capable of shooting 4K videos and even slow-mo that iPhone Xs can do. On the front, it has a 7-megapixel True depth camera ƒ/2.2 aperture as mentioned by Apple.
Apple has come up with a few new colors for iPhone Xr they are Black, Red, Yellow, Blue, Coral, and White.
- A12 Bionic chip

- No Dual camera on the back
- Cheap display
iPhone Xr with 64GB – $749
iPhone Xr with 128GB-$799

Thoughts on the new iPhone Xr:
We believe that Apple started focussing on all markets around the globe to move forward to achieve their next 2 Trillion dollar company title. But making the phone for the price of $750 is not affordable for all market. Yes, still iPhone 6S is famous and selling in India. Still, the price point fixed by the Apple and calling it as affordable iPhone is not true.
And the iPhone Xr has the less PPI, which is similar to the PPI of iPhone 5. All might think that Apple has finally brought the price down with iPhone Xr. Yes, it has brought the price point down by cutting down the cost in display and using a single camera on the back.
We feel like Apple is fooling people with the brand name. Please write down your thoughts in the comments below.
