Apple posts new iPhone XR ads to promote preorder day

Apple iPhone Xr – South African pricing iPhone XR available for pre-order from Friday
Oscar Goodwin | 22 October, 2018, 03:45

The Apple iPhone Xr will be available for pre-order this week, and local stores have unveiled their pricing for the device.

The aluminium handset is available in white, blue, black, coral, and yellow, along with a special Product Red version.

The Apple iPhone XR is powered by hexa-core processor and it packs 64GB of internal storage that can not be expanded. On Friday, people who want a new phone but don't want to buy the more expensive iPhone XS can opt for the cheaper, more colorful XR option.

However, just because Apple has released new iPhones doesn't mean everyone is automatically rushing to get them.

One common message across multiple videos is that the iPhone XR doesn't feel at all like a budget phone. The iPhone XR also offers stereo speakers and supports dual SIM dual standby. The iPhone XR has its own appeal and it is likely to attract a lot of buyers even in a market such as India.

Apple invited me to check out the iPhone XR for a brief test drive this week.

The iPhone XR has the same software and the same powerful chip as the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max.

The smartphones will be delivered to customers from October 26, 2018. Also missing is the more durable steel frame as the iPhone XS and XS Max, with the stronger material being replaced with more scratch and bending prone aluminum.

For selfies, the iPhone XR sports a 7MP selfie camera with a f/2.2 aperture along with a TrueDepth camera for FaceID.

The iPhone XR will be available for purchase in Israel on November 1, while the following countries will get the phone a day later: Armenia, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, South Korea, Macau, Maldives, Myanmar, Ukraine and Vietnam. The new Liquid Retina display is rumored to be the reason for such a long delay of the iPhone XR. The iPhone XR will come with iOS 12 out-of-the-box.
