Apple states that its latest mobile phone the iPhone XR is an all-screen design, with the most extended battery life ever in an iPhone series. The latest phone is the Fastest performance. It’s water- and splash-resistant. It will take studio-quality photos and 4K video. And most of all, the new iPhone XR is a lot more secure with Face ID. Apple describes the new iPhone XR as a brilliant upgrade.

iPhone XR is the twelfth generation of the iPhone series released last year which

The iPhone built with a 6.1-inch “Liquid Retina” LCD, which Apple stated is the “most advanced and color accurate in the industry.” The phone is the least expensive device in Apple’s iPhone X line of devices, with a starting price of $749 in the United States, $1029 in Canada, £749 in the United Kingdom, €849 in the Eurozone countries, and 6499 yuan in China. The iPhone XR features the equivalent processor as the XS and XS Max, the Apple A12 Bionic chip built with a 7-nanometer process. Also, this Apple phone has the smartest and most powerful chip” ever put into a smartphone.

The phone is available in black, white, blue, yellow, coral (a shade of pink and orange), and Product Red. Also, you can get the XR in three storage capacities: 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. It is the second iPhone to be released by Apple in yellow and blue, the first being the iPhone 5C in 2013.

Internationally, the phone supports dual SIMs through a Nano-SIM and an eSIM. In mainland China, Hong Kong, and Macau, dual Nano-SIM (in a single tray) is offered instead.

Despite receiving some criticism for its display, the XR received generally positive reviews from critics after its release. The XR is Apple’s best selling 2018 iPhone model. According to Apple, the XR battery lasts one-and-a-half hours longer than its direct predecessor, the iPhone 8 Plus.

The announcement of the XR was made by Phil Schiller on September 12, 2018, at Steve Jobs Theater in the Apple Park campus. The iPhone XR has a design which is similar to the iPhone X and iPhone XS, but with a bigger bezel, an aluminum frame. Also, the phone is available in a variety of colors. The iPhone XR is similar to other X-branded iPhones. The XR also comes with an IP67 rating for dust and water protection, meaning, it can be covered in 1-meter deep water for 30 minutes.

The XR has comparable hardware to the XS, but with some features removed to reduce the price. Instead of 3D Touch, the XR comes with Haptic Touch where the user long presses until they feel a vibration from the Taptic Engine. The XR also has an LCD known as Liquid Retina instead of the OLED screen used on the X, XS, and XS Max.

The display on the XR has a resolution of 1792×828 pixels and a pixel density of 326 PPI compared with 458 PPI on other X-branded iPhones. The screen-to-body ratio of the XR is 79.3%, much higher than the 67.5% of the iPhone 8 Plus but still less than most other phones in its price category.

Unlike most other phones in the X-series, the XR ships with a single camera on the back on the phone, featuring very similar specs to the main camera on the XS and XS Max. Unlike the XS, it does not have optical zoom. DxOMark gave the camera on the iPhone XR a rating of 101, giving the title “Top-ranked single-lens phone.”

Despite the rear single-camera setup, a modified version of Portrait Mode is included, which works unaltered while using the TrueDepth front camera. With the rear camera, the phone attempts to calculate the depth of field using a combination of the focus pixels on the image sensor and AI, resulting in more limitations including lower resolution depth data and subjects not being close enough due to the wide-angle lens being used instead of the missing telephoto lens.

At present, only human faces can be recognized in the iOS camera app. However, third-party camera apps including Halide are working to allow Portrait Mode to work on other subjects as well. Just like the iPhone XS and XS Max, the iPhone XR also offers the adjustable depth of field through software, allowing you to adjust the background bokeh after taking a photo.
