IPhone XR sales start today in UAE

IPhone XR sales start today in UAE

Instead of an OLED panel, you get the old school LCD IPS panel. But upon closer look, you will notice the changes. You won't be able to take a Portrait shot of your dog or brunch.

But the biggest attraction of the XR may be its price: It starts at $749 compared to a base price of $999 for the iPhone XS line. While the iPhone XS starts at $999 in the U.S., the iPhone XR starts at $749, making it not only affordable but also in the same ballpark as those upgrade from a year or two old model. If you're upgrading from the iPhone 6 or 7, the camera is still going to blow you away - it's able to handle a much broader range of light all at once, meaning shots framed with heavy shadows and heavy sunlight manage to look neither blown out or far too dim. The smartphone was introduced alongside the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max as the only LCD model for 2018.

As for the other three things, I've barely noticed. We'll dive into what a difference this makes in the coming days. If I don't charge my iPhone XS Max at work, it was usually limping in the red if I got home past 8 p.m. or so. I've been futzing about with it pretty heavily, and it still has a healthy 37 percent of battery life left. The 256GB model of the iPhone XR is priced at Rs 91,900. At the end of the day, the best phone screen in the world isn't worth much if your phone is dead.

The accessory section at the Apple Store does not feature official Apple cases and display only selected number of third-party cases for the iPhone XR. The improvement in battery endurance can be attribiuted to both the larger battery (2942mAh vs 2691mAh) and the more efficient chipset of the iPhone XR. With humbler features and a design that's ever-so-slightly-less premium than the iPhone XS and XS Max, the iPhone XR would still undeniably prove to be a fan favorite due to the lower entry point to the Apple ecosystem.

The iPhone XR price in India was announced at the launch event held in Cupertino, California last month.

Yes, you've heard that argument before - the iPhone XR only comes with a 720p display, which is definitely a downgrade from the one on the iPhone 8 Plus, which pegged in at a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels.
