The device, which was unveiled alongside the higher-end iPhone XS and XS Max last month, has been touted to play a key role in driving sales for the USA tech giant, thanks to its more affordable price point and bigger screen; it is Apple's second-largest smartphone so far.

There has been some talk, okay a lot of talk, about whether the iPhone XR is a better investment than the XS. Despite these missing features, the iPhone XR is being touted as a great value iPhone by most reviewers.

The XR's Portrait Mode also requires you to get much closer to your subject than the XS and the XS Max, so pictures taken from the same spot with the various models got different results.

That obviously comes in handy if you'd rather not bring your iPhone XS Max with you to the gym or on a run. It's not a bug, it's deliberate smoothing of some facial features to make you look more wonderful.

Surprisingly, in the United Kingdom market, all the models and colors of iPhone XR will need a waiting time of one to two weeks for shipment. It has a 6.1-inch (828×1792-pixel) LCD retina display.

You will be losing the telephoto camera on the back if you go for the iPhone XR. However, it is priced less than the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max priced Rs 99,900 and Rs 1,09,900, respectively. Recall that last month the company had announced the date of sale of the iPhone XR. Which, it has to be said, would buy you a flagship from pretty much any Android manufacturer. The Apple handset is also available for pre-order online at Vodafone Idea as well. Apple has also tied up with carriers like Airtel, Reliance Jio and Vodafone top offer the iPhone XR with exciting cashbacks and bundled plans. The display, however, lacks 3D Touch. "It's big enough that if you have smaller hands, you'll need to stretch your thumb far over the screen to tap open apps." . It is also equipped with the latest Bionic A12 processor, the same 12-megapixel front camera and unlock function of the device by scanning the user Face ID.

Other differences are that the XS has Gigabit LTE 4G capability (if you can ever get that anywhere) while the XR doesn't, and the XR is rated for slightly better waterproofing (IP68 vs the XR's IP67).
