Apple announced an iPhone XR which is a lower-cost new iPhone (successor of iPhone 8) alongside Apple’s highly expensive flagship iPhones named iPhone Xs and Xs Max. While it’s a budget-friendly iPhone – making a couple of compromises – an aluminum core instead of stainless steel and an LCD screen rather than OLED. However, it still promises to deliver an exceptional experience and might of an iPhone X range on a budget. The Apple iPhone XR in Australia is good enough for the majority of us who might not want to part with AU$1799 for an iPhone Xs. Read on to find out what it dishes out.

It has been observed that Apple offers more colour options for its budget-friendly devices and interestingly, the iPhone XR is no exception. The device is one of the most noticeable traits as it comes in Red, White, Coral, Black, Blue, and Yellow. Making a comparison – iPhone Xs and Xs Max only come in 3 sensational colours which are more elegant.
The rear looks a lot like an iPhone 8 with a single-lens camera which is slightly raised but doesn’t look like an iPhone X. The aluminum frame around feels high-end and a glass (Apple’s most durable) is capable of wireless charging. A 6.1-inches LCD screen putting XR squarely between 5.8-inches iPhone Xs and 6.5-inches. It’s comfortable when holding in a hand and not cumbersome at all.
Exceptional Performance and Better Battery
Apple in iPhone XR, Xs, and Xs Max, added its latest A12 Bionic Processor – boasting a “Next Generation Neural Engine” with 8 cores – and overall a Chip which can process 5 Trillian operations per second. Hence iPhone XR can manage anything you’d throw at it. The camera is fluid with Zero stutter or lag and if you try an ARKit 2.0, it manages to seamlessly layer detailed graphics over the real world.
With a removal of Home Button, you’ll have to use gestures in order to navigate an operating system. Based on numerous online sources, it’s one of the best gesture systems and you won’t run into any performance problems moving around the operating system. The XR runs on Apple’s latest OS – iOS 12 – which drops September 17.
Battery-wise, an exact battery capacity is undercovers for now, but Apple claims that an iPhone XR can last around 1.5 hours longer as compared to iPhone 8 Plus. Thus you can expect around a full day of use.
There is a 12MP rear sensor with an f/1.8 aperture and optical image stabilization. It’s backed by all new lens over last year’s iPhone – which delivers users stronger images. There are 2 dazzling features – Portrait Mode and Smart HDR – though. How about the results? The results perhaps won’t live up to a dual-camera system on Xs and Xs and Max – but a brief shot you capture will look great. You access a Portrait Lightning features – Apple introduced with an iPhone X last year.
