  • Apple iPhone Xr – South African pricing

Just like the iPhone XS devices, the new iPhone XR also sports an edge-to-edge display with a notch on the top.

It's October 19, and Apple has opened up pre-orders for the iPhone XR, the more colorful, less expensive, and slightly less powerful variant of its flagship new phone. Add the 6.1-inch Liquid Retina screen and improved camera smarts, and the iPhone XR is definitely worth a place on your smartphone shortlist.

Starting today, Walmart customers can preorder the iPhone XR at Walmart.com for in-store pickup next week.

LeBron James suffers loss in first game with Los Angeles Lakers
The 33-year-old signed a four-year deal with the Lakers in the summer, earning a reported $154m (£118.2m ) over the term. James threw down a thunderous dunk Thursday night for his first points with his new franchise .

The iPhone XR with 12MP rear camera and 7MP front sensor claims to have better low light performance.

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.

There's plenty of reasons to look forward to this release with the XR landing in your pocket with a super fast A12 Bionic processor and all-screen design which covers the front of the device.

Apple announces October 30th NYC event, new iPads and Macs expected
The keynote, which will start at 10 am EDT, is expected to focus on a refreshed lineup of iPads and Mac computers. It doesn't really tell us much but according to speculation, one of it will be its all new iPad Pro for 2018.

Apple iPhone XR is priced at Rs 76,900 for 64GB variant, which is not small sum but affordable when compared against the iPhone XS and XS Max. I especially appreciated getting a good view of the colors of each aluminum band that wraps the phone; I'm a big fan of the Coral option for the glass back, but that color's aluminum band is more orange than I'd prefer, which is good to know.

In terms of size, the iPhone XR slots between the iPhone XS and XS Max. It has an aperture of f/1.8 and comes loaded with optical image stabilization, a 6-element lens, focus pixel with a quad LED truetone flash, among other features.

The iPhone XR will be available for purchase in Israel on November 1, while the following countries will get the phone a day later: Armenia, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, South Korea, Macau, Maldives, Myanmar, Ukraine and Vietnam. The iPhone XR also supports Face ID and will ship with iOS 12.
