Apple debuts 6.1-inch LCD iPhone XR, coming in October

The Apple Watch is inching toward becoming a medical device

Gareth is very clear in his summation of the iPhone XR's camera system, which he states is "the weakest of the three phones" just announced by the American maker.

The iPhone X was unveiled only past year and it went on sale in November 2017.

Design-wise TechRadar's Gareth Beavis says that next to the iPhone XS the new iPhone XR is "not quite as attractive", pointing out its thicker bezels and drawing your attention to the fact that its edges aren't made out of the same premium-feeling materials.

Apple has added the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR to its battery support page and revealed 2019 prices for replacing batteries in older iPhone models. The iPhone XS (pronounced "ten ess") and XS Max are the updated version of last year's iPhone X. The XS has a 5.8-inch OLED display, while the XS Max has a 6.5-inch display.

Single rear camera lens instead of two: This is a big one. It has the same upgraded technology as the iPhone XS phones, and you can take Bokeh portrait shots with the help of software. People storing albums upon albums of home movies will prefer the 512GB option that the iPhone XS and XS Max offer.

The new iPhone XR's release date is pencilled in for September 21, with pre-orders going live on September 14. Apple gave us cryptic guidance like "it lasts 90 minutes longer than the iPhone 8 Plus". Sadly, it's now time to hold a candle to the iPhone X as Apple has discontinued its "revolutionary" flagship for this year.

They come in gold, silver, and space gray. With the iPhone XR, which comes in yellow, coral, blue and red as well as black and white, the color is already baked into the phone (but you'll probably want a clear case for your glass-backed phone anyway). "iPhone X would hurt product brand value & lineup of 2H18 new models if it continues to sell at a lower price after 2H18 new models launch", he wrote in a research note, according to MacRumors.
