IPhone XR launches at Sydney CBD flagship store

Apple iPhone XR Apple iPhone XR

A year after leaning on its high-price iPhone X to ignite sales of its best-selling product line, Apple Inc. may need the lower-priced successor-the XR-to perform the same trick. Finding that right balance is going to be tricky. The source notes that demand for the iPhone will increase significantly as buyers will now be able to live to see the iPhone XR. The handset starts at Rs 76,900 for the 64GB model. This comes a week after the iPhone XR pre-orders began on October 19. It also has a rectangular shaped battery rather than the L-shaped one in other X models, and though it's smaller than the 8 Plus', it has a larger capacity.

That said, there is plenty of XS goodness in here too - like those devices, the XR is powered by the new A12 "Bionic chip with the next-generation neural engine", which means it should exhibit something like the awesome turn of speed that its cousins do. New iOS 12.1 Update Will Bring Group FaceTime & Dual-SIM Support to Apple iPhones - Report.

iPhone XR became the third model, unveiled by Apple since September. The iPhone website claims that their phone is incomparably unique even though phones such as the Google Pixel 2 have similar features: wireless charging, waterproof systems and camera design. In fact, there are some who would even consider the older iPhone X as competition, thanks to a few price cuts being offered by some retailers. This new touch interaction mode feature came into the Apple ecosystem with the iPhone 6S, but after analysing four years of consumer behaviour data, it's clear this feature has been woefully underused. Oh, you can also get it in six different colors. Plus, with the money you save you could upgrade to 128GB of storage for $50 more. The XR, though, does not have a 512GB model. The price of the iPhone X is lower than the iPhone X and the iPhone X Max.

Both Vodafone and Idea Cellular also announced availability of the iPhone XR for today, with offers for Vodafone Red and Idea Nirvana customers.

The effect is much like the LCD screens Apple has made before, to be honest, as they've always been colorful and sharp, but with the new "Liquid Retina" display things are supposed to closer to the high-end OLED screen. This does lead to a noticeable difference in the display quality. With this deal, you can get the iPhone XR for $10 over 36 months.

Rihannon William's from the i newspaper was impressed that the phone lasted 15-16 hours: "Battery life is an incredibly important aspect when considering buying a smartphone these days, and the iPhone XR pleasantly surprised me with how efficient it was".
