Apple's world-leading smartphone technology is encapsulated in the iPhone XR, with its fluid performance, powerful camera and extensive battery life. More accessibly priced than the iPhone XS and XS Max, the XR nevertheless offers the ultra-fast experience of an A12 Bionic chip, the convenient security of Face ID, and an outstanding 11.5 hours of battery life when used continuously.
The iPhone XR runs on iOS 12 and comes with 64, 128 or 256GB of storage. It weighs in at 6.8 ounces (194g) – not bad at all for a 5.94-inch (150.9mm) device with a 6.1-inch display.
Its Liquid Retina HD display is an all-screen, Multi-Touch LCD panel with IPS technology for better colour reproduction and wider viewing angles.
A 12-megapixel, wide-angle rear-facing camera is complemented by a 7-megapixel TrueDepth front-facing camera and with up to 25 hours of talk-time or 65 hours of audio playback, the iPhone XR's battery life is among the very best on the market.
iPhone XR Camera.
The enlarged sensor on the iPhone XR's 12-megapixel rear-facing camera lets light flood in and enrich your photos and videos, helping you capture everything in infinite detail. The broad dynamic range of the XR's camera makes this iPhone a firm favourite among photographers, and whether you're shooting cloudy skies or bright sunny scenes, the wide aperture will absorb your subject and produce beautiful results.
The front-facing camera allows you to adjust the depth and lighting effects while taking selfies in 7-megapixel detail, and there is a Contour Light option for those all-important enhancements.
The video capabilities of the XR are strengthened by its extended dynamic range, which enables you to capture highlights and shadows more effectively. Shooting videos with the XR in varied conditions, such as moving from outdoors to indoors, produces better results than you can expect from phones with less dynamic range.
iPhone XR Design.
The XR comes in a broader range of colours than its predecessors, with models available in black, white, blue, yellow, coral and red to suit your preference, and the durable, water-resistant casing keeps your device safe from everyday knocks and spills.
It ditches the glass-back in favour of the durable metallic material and features the classic Apple look – long with curved, smooth edges. It features the same button layout as the iPhone X – of course meaning it no longer features a home button.
iPhone XR Display.
The 6.1-inch screen on the iPhone XR gives you ample room to manoeuvre, and opening multiple apps across a split landscape screen still renders all your content clear and accessible.
The display resolution of 828x1792 comes with a pixel density of 326 per inch, which mirrors the quality you might expect from printed photographs, and Apple's back-lit LCD technology ensures everything you view on your iPhone XR looks as vivid as you would hope.
True Tone functionality in the XR screen matches the colour temperature of your display to the ambient light surrounding your phone, so you no longer experience harsh contrasts and garish colours. With the XR, everything feels warm, balanced, and easy on the eye.
iPhone XR Battery.
The iPhone XR is renowned for its impressive battery life – its 2,942mAh battery, combined with its processing technology, will comfortably provide up to 15 hours of constant internet-app use, up to 16 hours video playback and up to 65 hours audio playback. The resilient battery life and robust build quality of the iPhone XR combine to make this device feel dependable, while its class-leading performance gives it real flair and flamboyance.
With fast-charging an option on the XR, you can take your iPhone from zero battery to 50% in just half an hour, you will need to buy an 18w which is sold separately. Wireless charging compatibility comes as standard.
Looking past the iPhone XR's extensive battery life, rich colourful display and endlessly entertaining stereo sound, the raw performance of this impressive device does not disappoint.
The A12 Bionic processor delivers speeds on a par with those of the iPhone XS and XS Max, with even the most lurid action games running smoothly, and multiple apps operating simultaneously without lagging. Even more traditionally taxing operations such as video editing and software updates are a breeze with the XR, which never leaves you waiting around for long – or in dire need of a recharge.
