iPhone XR (stylized and marketed as iPhone Xr, Roman numeral "X" pronounced "ten") is a smartphone designed and manufactured by Apple, Inc. It is the twelfth generation of the iPhone. It was announced by Phil Schiller on September 12, 2018, at the Steve Jobs Theater in the Apple Park campus, alongside the higher-priced iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. Pre-orders began on October 19, 2018, with an official release on October 26, 2018.
The phone has a 6.1-inch "Liquid Retina" LCD display, which Apple claims is the "most advanced LCD in the industry."It is the least expensive device in Apple's iPhone X line of devices, with a starting price of $749 in the United States, $1029 in Canada, £749 in the United Kingdom, €849 in the Eurozone countries, and 6499 yuan in China. It features the same processor as the XS and XS Max, the Apple A12 Bionic chip built with a 7 nanometer process, which Apple claims to be the "smartest and most powerful chip" ever put into a smartphone.
It is available in six colors: black, white, blue, yellow, coral (a shade of pink and orange), and PRODUCT [RED]. The XR is available in three storage capacities: 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. It is the second iPhone to be released in yellow and blue, the first being the iPhone 5C in 2013. Internationally, the phone supports dual SIMs through a Nano-SIM and an eSIM. In mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau, dual Nano-SIM (in a single tray) is offered instead.
Despite receiving some criticism for its lower display resolution in comparison to previous iPhone models at roughly the same price point, the XR received mostly positive reviews from critics and users after its release. The XR is Apple's best selling 2018 model. According to Apple, the XR battery lasts one-and-a-half hours longer than its direct predecessor, the iPhone 8
