Description

The iPhone XR is an affordable, yet still very capable alternative to the iPhone XS. It features the same iPhone X-inspired design, along with gesture navigation and Face ID, and the same groundbreaking A12 Bionic system chip. The 6.1-inch screen, however, is an LCD one instead of OLED and has lower, but still Retina-level resolution. The camera on the back is just a single, 12MP unit, but it has a larger sensor and larger pixels for better image clarity. The iPhone XR will come in a variety of fresh new colors, including blue, yellow, coral, and red.
