IPhone Xr pre-orders are now live

Analyst Details Apple’s 2019 iPhone Lineup

Apple's cheaper iPhone XR to generate more revenue: Analyst

While bearing the same new-generation design spurred by last year's decade-anniversary iPhone X - an all-screen display with a notch on top - the iPhone XR noticeably leaves out some flagship features: it will come with only a 6.1-inch LCD screen - "Liquid Retina", as Apple terms it - and a single-lens camera system.

Apple's cheapest iPhone - the colourful iPhone XR - will cost R15,999 for the 64GB version in South Africa, and will be available in stores on October 26, iStore South Africa revealed on Wednesday.

The iPhone Xr is made from aerospace-grade aluminium and is available in a variety of colourful finishes.

Interested buyers can head over to Flipkart, Amazon.in or Paytm Mall to pre-book the iPhone XR online on Friday. The iPhone XR has its own appeal and it is likely to attract a lot of buyers even in a market such as India. So, of course, Apple wants to remind us of the XR's existence, so we get a few promo shorts that showcase the phone and some of its distinct features, as well as a guide on how to use Portrait Mode. Let us know in the comments.

Apple iPhone XR can be pre-ordered starting today, October 19.

United States stays cautious over Jamaal Khashoggi as new killing claims emerge
Turkish officials claim they have proof a 15-member Saudi hit squad killed Khashoggi inside Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul. Some materials at the Saudi consulate have been painted over, Turkey's President Tayyip Erdoğan said on October 16.


With a starting price of $749 Dollars, the iPhone XR is the cheapest among the new iPhone trio. The XR also only comes with a single camera on the back. It can also be purchased with 128GB or 256GB of storage for additional charges.

The iPhone XR with 12MP rear camera and 7MP front sensor claims to have better lowa'light performance. For one, the aluminum plates allowed Apple to offer the iPhone XR in 6 very different, punchy colors, which we certainly do appreciate.

The phone will be available in blue, yellow, red, black, white and coral similar to the iPhone 5C in 2013. What are the iPhone XR's differentiators, compared to the XS line?

This phone features plenty of new technology including a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina edge-to-edge display, wireless charging and new A12 Bionic processor which is now outperforming all of its Android rivals in speed tests.
