  • Apple Suppliers Continue to Remain Cautious – Believe the iPhone XR Might Not Be a ‘Home Run’

The last quarter of every year is reserved for iPhone launches.

Apple started sales of iPhone XS and XS Max long before iPhone XR, a natural move to push as many units of the pricey iPhones before the cheaper variant rocks the shelves.

Apple's iPhone XR starts at £749 for the 64GB model.

If you've not yet decided which color iPhone XR to buy, or which storage capacity to buy then check out our post for some tips on which iPhone XR color and iPhone XR storage capacity to buy.

Today a variety of YouTube videos have been published featuring hands-on looks at the iPhone XR, which becomes available for pre-order tomorrow and ships Friday, October 26th. It features 6.1-inch liquid retina display with a resolution of 828 pixels by 1792 pixels at a PPI of 326 pixels per inch.

And it also comes in more colours - six to be exact, reminiscent of the iPhone 5C from 2013: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (Product) RED.

The iPhone Xr is made from aerospace-grade aluminium and is available in a variety of colourful finishes. As per communication by Airtel, the iPhone XR will be delivered to pre-ordering customers on October 26.

Despite there only being a single 12-megapixel camera on the rear glass case, the XR is fully capable of adding depth effects to your photos. As for the 256GB model, the total comes up to RM5191, and the 512GB variant will set you back RM6091.

The first wave of iPhone XR reviews are in and based on the early impressions, Apple may have a big hit on its hands.

The iPhone XR has the same basic design as Apple's flagship iPhone XS with numerous same high-end features such as facial recognition and the new A12 Bionic chip.

Like the iPhone Xs, the iPhone Xr does not have any home button and relies on Face ID for biometric authentication.
