As a toned-down version of the series, the iPhone XR is packed with trendy features and some similarities with its bigger brothers. The handset is housed in an Aerospace grade aluminum body with an IP67 rating. In terms of its size, Apple placed the iPhone XR in the middle of the iPhone Xs and Xs Max through its 6.1-inch Liquid Retina edge-to-edge display. The device gives off a 1792 x 823 resolution, translating to 326 ppi.

Inside, the device is geared with the same A12 Bionic chip found on the Xs line. However, its storage options are limited only up to 256GB. Unlike its big bros, it won’t sport a 3D Touch, but instead, it comes with a haptic touch that works like a trackpad.

The iPhone XR features a single camera setup on the back, as it is equipped with 12-megapixel wide-angle lens with OIS. It bags the same selfie snapper, on the other hand, with its 7-megapixel front shooter that supports depth Portrait modes.

Battery wise, Apple promised to gear it with stamina that can last 1.5 hours longer than the iPhone 8.

The iPhone XR's price starts at USD 749. It will be up for pre-order starting October 19, while it will be out in stores beginning October 25.
