The iPhone XR (pronounced “ten-R”) was released in September 2018, but it remains one of the most popular iPhones on Swappa. Announced alongside the more premium iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, the iPhone XR struck a happy middle ground with consumers wanting to buy a used iPhone without all the fluff.
iPhone XR specs and features
Larger than the 5.8-inch iPhone XS but smaller than the 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max, the iPhone 6.1-inch XR sports the same all-screen front face and gesture-driven UI originally seen on 2017’s iPhone X. iPhone XR colors include six bold and vibrant colors: white, black, blue, yellow, coral, and PRODUCT(RED). Each model has a matte, anodized aluminum frame, but the biggest difference between the iPhone XR and iPhone XS is the display.
The iPhone X, XS, and 11 feature Apple’s newer 2436 x 1125 Super Retina XDR OLED screen, whereas the iPhone XR has a 1792 x 828 Liquid Retina (IPS) LCD and a slightly thicker surrounding bezel. The slightly lower-quality display, in addition to less RAM and a single camera lens, helped Apple keep costs low. This made the iPhone XR the most affordable phone in the 12th generation lineup. Apple squeezed the same A12 Bionic chip into iPhone XR, so you don’t have to sacrifice performance when deciding between XR or XS models.
Today, the iPhone 11 and other newer models have replaced the iPhone XR as Apple’s budget flagship — but those who don’t care about all of the latest bells and whistles can save a ton of money by shopping for a gently used iPhone XR.
