The iPhone XR (pronounced “ten-R”) was released a little over a year ago, but it remains one of the most popular iPhones to ever launch. Announced alongside the more premium iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, the iPhone XR struck a chord with consumers wanting a cheap iPhone without all the fluff.
Larger than the 5.8-inch XS but smaller than the 6.5-inch XS Max, the iPhone 6.1-inch XR follows a similar design aesthetic made famous by 2017’s iPhone X (no home button, infamous screen notch). iPhone XR colors include six bold and vibrant colors: white, black, blue, yellow, coral (pinkish/orange), and (Product)RED. Each model has a matte, anodized aluminum frame but the biggest difference between the iPhone XR and iPhone XS (and previous year’s iPhone X) is the display.
The iPhone X/XS feature Apple’s newer 2436 x 1125 OLED panel, while the iPhone XR comes equipped with a 1792 x 828 Liquid Retina (IPS) LCD and a slightly thicker surrounding bezel. The lower quality display, in addition to less RAM and a single camera lens, helped Apple keep costs low, making the iPhone XR the most affordable phone of the 2018 “X” lineup. Apple did use the same A12 Bionic in the iPhone XR, so you don’t have sacrifice performance when deciding between XR or XS models.
Today, the iPhone XR has been replaced by the regular iPhone 11 as Apple’s budget flagship, but those who don’t care about all the bells and whistles can save a ton of money by skipping Apple’s yearly releases. With iPhone XR prices starting at $414 — that’s about $185 off the price of a brand-new model from Apple.
