Apple iPhone XR Pre-Sale Begins, New Event Announced for October 30

Apple Has Something Exciting to Announce

Apple is ready to take your money and offer you iPhone XR in exchange but are you willing to buy it? There are some concerns about the price point which is a little higher than what a mid-range smartphone should cost. Still, if you are willing to spend $749 on the iPhone XR than now is your chance to grab a unit.

Apple has opened preorders for the iPhone XR. If you manage to grab a unit, the device will be at your doorstep on October 26. Compared to iPhone Xs and Xs Max, XR is the least expensive model yet its price is a cause for concern, especially, when you look at its overall specs.

The main difference between XR and Xs are size, color, display, and camera. The display is LCD, unlike XR’s OLED. The liquid retina LCD features the same amount of pixels as the iPhone 4.
