IPhone XR Goes on Sale in India and Other Launch Countries Today

  • Sales of iPhone XR begin in Russia

Apple's new iPhone XR has most of the features found in the top-of-the-line iPhone XS Max, but not its $1,100 price tag.

26 October is yet another significant date for Apple's journey in Malaysia as it marked the official arrival of the new 2018 iPhone line-up in our market. The body of the XS Max is actually slightly smaller than that of the iPhone 6 Plus, which Apple unveiled four years ago. The iPhone X was a lovely, enticing phone; I bought one before ultimately returning it, deciding that I wasn't quite ready to pay $1,000 for a smartphone. The official launch is slated for November 2. This design choice indicates that consumers can't really tell the difference between various high-end display resolutions and colour reproduction qualities, and that a large 6-inch design pretty much trumps all other design considerations. "Even though it features 3GB of RAM to the iPhone XS' 4GB, the overall situation here is that you're getting a phone that is damn near identical as far as speed and capability". What it does is the same, but you will need to pay some more for the AppleCare, and you will also be allowed to upgrade to a new model after one year. Recall that last month the company had announced the date of sale of the iPhone XR. And it's already hard to sit down if you have an iPhone 8 Plus in your jeans pocket.

WWE isn't canceling Saudi event despite Khashoggi killing
They also photographed Saudi diplomatic vehicles scouting wooded areas in the days before Khashoggi disappeared. Turkey and Western allies of Riyadh have voiced deep scepticism about Saudi explanations of the killing.

My take: I agree, and would add the absence of grey market buyers, now that Apple launches simultaneously in 50 countries, including China.

You can still take a portrait shot and have the background attractively blurred to keep the focus on the subject, but unlike with the iPhone XS, you can't take pictures of objects and animals in the same way. The XR falls between the top-of-the-line XS models in size, but is lower in price. It is also equipped with the latest Bionic A12 processor, the same 12-megapixel front camera and unlock function of the device by scanning the user Face ID. Some of the newest features include the bionic chip, wireless charging and stronger glass protecting the iPhone from damage. There are various aspects covered, so let's see some more details on the teardown and how different it is from the iPhone XS and the previous models. The frame is Aluminum instead of stainless steel which feels fine if you're upgrading from an iPhone 8 or earlier but keep it next to an iPhone XS and you can immediately notice that it's not as premium. Just how well it fares against them and where it stands in its own family hierarchy will be revealed in our detailed review.
