IPhone XR: Everything you need to know!

Posted September 13, 2018

The change looks like it will apply to the three new iPhone models launched on Wednesday-the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR-as well as the older iPhone 8 and iPhone 7.

Apple also introduced a lower-cost 6.1-inch (15.5 cm) iPhone XR made of aluminum, at a starting price at $749. However, in order to keep a strong foothold in the premium segment and increase the accessibility, they have toned down the XS to shape it in the form of iPhone XR. The screen needs no backlight, so black would appear as truly black rather than simply dark. The iPhone Xs and Xs Max double that, with a 512GB model for those who want to pay a few hundred dollars extra.

Design-wise, the iPhone Xr bears similarities to the iPhone Xs and Xs Max with a 6.1-inch all-screen build, slim bezels and the signature notch which incorporates Face ID and gestural navigation, but for a considerably lower price starting at $749 United States dollars, and available in 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB models.

Battery Life. In Consumer Reports testing, iPhones have frequently lagged other premium models when it comes to battery life.

The high price of iPhones caused the company to take home 87 per cent of total profits for the smartphone industry in the three months to Christmas previous year, eclipsing rivals Samsung and Huawei, according to analysts Canaccord Genuity.

Speaking of which, let's talk about the not-so-headline-grabbing iPhone XR.

Others pointed out that it was a missed opportunity, arguing that the firm should have called its XS Max - which has the biggest iPhone display yet - the iPhone XL. It'll cost roughly $750 and come out on October 26. The trio of new devices offers a chance to do the same.

Display The one major difference between the iPhone XS and iPhone XR lies in the display. The iPhone remains its biggest product, and the company is ready to make it even bigger. In real time, the processor in the iPhone instantly detects and displays performance metrics-the speed of the ball as it leaves the player's hand, the release angle of each shot, even the position of the player's legs. Apple says the camera along with smarter AI-based algorithms can deliver better imaging capabilities than the iPhone 8. And of course, it will run the same iOS 12 software. Both will be free to install.

The smartwatches now feature an electrocardiogram (ECG) sensor which can measure not only the heart's rate but its rhythm. But it's now effectively a medical device, and its clear that's where Apple's focus with the product lies (it's describing the latest version of the product as an "intelligent guardian for your health").

Ben Wood of CCS Insight said getting US regulatory clearance for that is a milestone that underscores the company's leadership in health and fitness. If it detects a fall and the user doesn't respond in a minute, it'll automatically call for help. This feature may be especially attractive to older people or those with elderly parents anxious about falling when no one is around to help.
