While many Apple fans feel they have little incentive to upgrade as their existing handsets are still working well, things may change with the introduction of the iPhone XR, a more affordable model with specifications that are similar to those of the flagship iPhone XS.

One of the key features of newer Apple Watches is the ability to perform a wide range of tasks without an iPhone nearby. It will also be available in a variety of attractive colours that include Yellow, White, Coral, Blue, (PRODUCT) Red and Black. In addition to price, the argument in favor of buying iPhone XR for many will be the battery capacity. Engadget enthuses that the device "arguably offers the best blend of size and usability", while Mashable has called it "the Goldilocks of iPhones with a big screen, fantastic cameras, and future-proof power".

Broadcaster CNN praised the new smartphone from Apple iPhone XR, calling it a "secret weapon" of the Corporation, which could significantly increase its sales.

The XR comes with a single-lens wide-angle camera, which is identical to the wide-angle cameras on the XS models. Also missing is the more durable steel frame that's on the iPhone XS and XS Max. The XR screen comes in at 6.1 inches - just between the XS, which measures 5.8 inches, and the 6.5-inch XS Max.

The XR - pronounced "ten R" even though it costs considerably more than that - will run you £749 for 64GB, £799 for 128GB and £899 for 256GB.

The goal of the iPhone Xr is to hit all the right design notes that appeal to the mainstream consumer, such as large displays, fast processors, long battery life and - most importantly - relative affordability. However, Apple has made some very clever design choices that make the iPhone XR quite appealing. There is no 3D touch support in it. This makes sense, given that the XR has a lower-resolution screen - we don't expect it to impact performance, and initial benchmarks and playing with the phone bear this out. The LTE radio in the iPhone XR is CAT-12 rather than the gigabit-per-second CAT-16 radio in the iPhone Xs. In addition, the new models are generating 7 percent more revenue than the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X combined.
