While Apple's top of the line iPhone XS starts at $999, the iPhone XR starts at $749. But unlike the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, which went on sale on September 21, the iPhone XR goes up for pre-order only tomorrow, October 19. The iPhone XR has an LCD screen, unlike the XS models and their OLED panels, which may be a pro or a con, depending on whether you care or prefer one over the other.

Apple's latest iPhone will be available for pre-order starting from today and once delivered, Ooredoo users simply have buy a new Shahry or Qatarna subscription and the free data will be automatically activated. The iPhone XR features 7000-series aerospace-grade aluminium and more durable glass in its construction, and comes with IP 67 rating for dust and water resistance. Now the spotlight turns to the iPhone XR.

Prices for the Apple iPhone XR will begin from Rs 76,900, which will be for the base 64GB variant. It has been a while since Apple has deviated from its usual array of colours for iPhones, and the iPhone XR will be available in black, white, yellow, blue, coral and (PRODUCT) RED colour options. The XR also only comes with a single camera on the back. This brings down the effective starting price to Rs 73,055. While still pricey for a phone, it's the cheapest iPhone Apple has released without a home button, allowing more space for a bigger screen. Airtel's online store also offers certain bundled offers to help iPhone XR customers avail premium postpaid plans at lower tariffs.
