The 6.1-inch iPhone XR is the third iPhone of the 2018 iPhone series and the cheapest of the new devices.
Instead of an OLED display, a dual-lens camera system, a stainless steel frame, 3D Touch and Gigabit LTE, the iPhone XR offers more affordable components that include a 1792×828 resolution LCD display, a single lens, camera system, lower water resistance, an aluminum frame, Haptic Touch and LTE Advanced.
On the positive side, the iPhone XR has a longer battery life than the iPhone XS and XS Max, and it comes in six colors: white, black, blue, coral, yellow and (PRODUCT) RED. Similar in design to the iPhone XS and XS Max, it has a crisp LCD screen with a notch and a TrueDepth camera system, but its apertures are slightly wider.
The iPhone XR has the same Face ID functionality as the iPhone XS and XS Max, with Apple 2018 eliminating the Home button in all its flagship iPhones. The iPhone XR also supports dual SIM features like the iPhone XS and it has the same super fast A12 chip.
It also has a glass body that supports wireless charging features, and software enhancements support many of the same camera features, including portrait mode, depth control, and Smart HDR.
