IPhone XR called the "secret weapon" Apple

iPhone XR Reviews Round Up: A Great Phone For Most People, According To Experts

It will especially attract consumers who have been waiting to trade up from their iPhone 8 or an older iPhone.

Apple's iPhone XR goes on sale for the first time on October 26 around the world including India. The iPhone XS has a 5.8 inch display and the iPhone XS Max has a 6.5 inch display. Customers will also be able to purchase the iPhone XR from Flipkart, Jio and Airtel's online store.

We'll delve more into the quality of the screen later in this review, but it's one of the key differences you'll want to consider if you're thinking about going for the less-costly iPhone. It has some weight to it due to the fact that the LCD display requires a backlight. You lose 3D Touch, but that's a feature that many have called useless for years. Apple no longer includes an adapter for standard headphones; one will set you back $9 if you need it. The thing is that even though there is one camera - it's the same 12-megapixel camera with 1.4-micron pixels and f/1.8 aperture with a wide field of view.

Overall, it's a really great camera system, and though we ultimately prefer the flexibility of the iPhone XS's dual lenses, and the brighter images we get from them in Portrait mode, this feels like a subjective opinion rather than something we can point to and say "This is definitely better". The iPhone XR falls in between with a 6.1 inch display. Let's have look at unboxing videos.

It will take more testing to find out just how well that software works on the XR, but in our first-day trials, we found that the Portrait Mode feature performs as advertised.

Instead of Milwaukee evening the score, Los Angeles held on to its one-run lead. He robbed Yelich of an extra-base hit with a runner on second and two outs.

You can still take a portrait shot and have the background attractively blurred to keep the focus on the subject, but unlike with the iPhone XS, you can't take pictures of objects and animals in the same way.

The iPhone XR also uses LCD technology instead of OLED, but in typical fashion that we have seen from Apple for years it still looks fantastic. Similar to Apple Music, the Podcasts app gives you access to Apple's full catalogue of podcasts from anywhere via streaming without the need for your iPhone.

Lam also said that the iPhone XR design exposes Apple's attempt to disrupt itself before others can disrupt it. This probably won't be a life-changing feature for most people - after all, it requires an extra accessory, which can cost about $US40 - but it's certainly nice to have.

Aside being the "best" iPhone yet, Apple even did cut couple of bucks off the device's original price and then adds more color to make variation easier and possible but still nobody pays any attention to this. Under the hood iPhone XR runs on Apple's A12 Bionic chip. The other notable compromise comes in the camera department - the XR sports only a single rear camera as compared to the dual cameras on the XS and XS Max.
