The iPhone XR, which will be released in October, is the least expensive of the three new iPhones.

Apple previously included a lightning to USB cable, USB power adapter, headphones for use with a Lightning connector and a dongle in the box containing a new iPhone. Photogs that are upgrading to the iPhone XS Max or iPhone XR can also pre-order the new Photo Case for those devices starting today. The iPhone X was nowhere to be seen, along with the iPhone 6S and the smaller iPhone SE. Most surprisingly, despite including only a single wide-angle lens, Apple has managed to bring Portrait Mode to the iPhone XR by using the A12 ISP and Neural Engine to create depth segmentation maps.

The iPhone X was unveiled only previous year and it went on sale in November 2017. "iPhone X would hurt product brand value & lineup of 2H18 new models if it continues to sell at a lower price after 2H18 new models launch", he wrote in a research note, according to MacRumors. It starts at $749 for the 64 GB model and will cost more for its 128 GB and 256 GB models. It features an edge-to-edge display and a faster processor than the $699 8 Plus.

As such, Gareth concludes that providing you don't want loads of advanced features, no "bells and whistles", then the camera system on the iPhone XR "will do you just fine".


Those reasons? The fact that Apple has likely put less RAM in to the iPhone XR compared to the iPhone XS and XS Max, and the screen resolution is likely going to be less, too.

Gareth does warn though that "we've been burned by iPhones not lasting as well as we'd like in the past", and reiterates that proper testing will be needed to evaluate how good the iPhone XR's battery is. There are still other important details we need to know about iPhone Xs, Xs Max, and Xr, such as the clock frequency of the chipset.

Up until Wednesday, Apple was selling the iPhone 6s for $US450, and the iPhone 6s Plus for $US550.
