The Apple iPhone XR is a great choice if you are looking for an affordable iPhone that’s brilliant in every way with some high-quality specs and features.
The design is very stylish with an all-screen glass and aerospace grade aluminium bands design featuring a 6.1-inch new Liquid Retina display - the most advanced LCD in the industry. This size is very impressive for this price, especially when you compare iPhone models that feature the same screen size such as the Apple iPhone 12. You don’t have to worry about everyday spills including coffee and tea as the design is splash and water resistant, with a rating of IP67. The iPhone XR is available in six stunning new finishes: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (PRODUCT)RED.
Another great feature is the ability to use fast and fluid gestures to operate the iPhone XR such as tap to wake, swipe up to the home screen, swipe down to access notifications and the control centre and use the haptic touch feature for pressing on the home screen to instantly launch the camera. You can also feel safe knowing the iPhone XR also includes advanced Face ID security – one of the most secure facial authentication system ever in a smartphone.
The iPhone XR is defining a new era of photography with a 12MP rear camera ƒ/1.8 wide-angle camera with an all-new sensor. The camera’s larger and deeper pixels help improve image quality and results in better low-light performance on photos and videos. The phone’s Depth Control allows you to take high-quality pictures so you can adjust the depth of field to create striking portraits.
The rear camera is complimented with a 7MP front-facing True Depth camera with an enhanced Portrait Mode featuring Portrait Lighting that will help you create photos like never before. The camera’s Smart HDR feature also means your photos are going to be improved, especially when there's extremely light or extremely dark elements in those photos.
The iPhone XR has a great battery life and it matches that of premium smartphones with up to 16 hours of video playback. You don’t have to worry about running out of battery power as it will get you through the day in a single charge. What’s more, it also supports fast charging capabilities so you can get back to full power in 30 minutes. With Apple's next generation neural engine, the iPhone XR runs on the A12 Bionic processor – one of the smartest, most powerful chip in a smartphone, with up to 3GB RAM allowing for smooth and fast performance.
With these features it’s clear why this is one of Apple’s most popular smartphones and is a perfect entry point for someone who may be considering buying an Apple iPhone for the first time.
