IPhone XR pre-orders are now live

Apple Suppliers Continue to Remain Cautious – Believe the iPhone XR Might Not Be a ‘Home Run’ Supply chain on edge with iPhone XR demand

The device, launched along with luxury iPhone XS and XS Max, houses A12 Bionic chip with next-generation "Neural Engine", which unlocks new experiences for immersive augmented reality (AR), games and photography. On one side, analysts claim that this particular variant is going to be the most popular one out of three announced during Apple's keynote, while a different report stating that the tech giant's suppliers are actually cautious for the future.

If you've been eagerly waiting to pre-order iPhone XR, then we wanted to remind you to pre-order iPhone XR so you can get it on October 26, the day it goes on sale.

On to the iPhone XS Max, we're looking at prices of RM4991, RM5591 and RM6491 for the 64GB, 256GB and 512GB versions, respectively.

Like the iPhone Xs, the iPhone Xr does not have any home button and relies on Face ID for biometric authentication. Although it comes under shrewd practice that you're anxious about the future, it is still too early to make out anything of this situation. The pre-order and arrival dates of the first wave coincide with the third wave of iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max arrivals in over 30 countries and territories, including Chile, Colombia, Malaysia, and Thailand.

So far, everyone's raving about the iPhone XR, even if it is lacking a few features.

The premium smartphone hits retail stores on October 26 in over 50 major markets, including India. Online, the iPhone XR is listed for pre-orders on Amazon, though Flipkart is yet to list it. It is priced at Rs 76,900 with 64GB storage, the 128GB storage variant will cost Rs 81,900 and the 256GB storage model costs Rs 91,900.

The affordable iPhone XR has a 6.1-inch LCD screen with liquid Retina display and aluminium body instead of a steel one. I especially appreciated getting a good view of the colors of each aluminum band that wraps the phone; I'm a big fan of the Coral option for the glass back, but that color's aluminum band is more orange than I'd prefer, which is good to know. In terms of optics, there is a single 12MP camera with f/1.8 aperture, smart HDR, OIS, and quad-LED flash.
