You can pre-order the iPhone XR starting today

Apple is taking orders for its new iPhone XR smartphone, featuring all-screen glass and aluminum design featuring a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display. You'll pay more for the 128GB and 256GB models, but comparatively, you'll still save, with 128GB costing $1299 and 256GB fetching a $1479 price tag in Australia, all under the $1500 tag that flagship phones are so regularly hitting these days. The phone will be ready to ship next Friday. As we've mentioned before, the iPhone XR offers users interested in a new device a brand new form factor at a price point that won't necessarily break the bank.

Recently, analyst with KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo has stated that the iPhone XR will be the top selling iPhone model of the year. The latest TrueDepth camera system offers Portrait mode and Portrait Lighting for wonderful selfies, and also brings Face ID, the most secure facial authentication system ever in a smartphone, to iPhone XR.

Moreover, customers ordering iPhone XR from Airtel will get additional benefits: free Netflix subscription for three months, free annual subscription of Amazon Prime, 100GB of free data, and free handset damage protection.

You can pre-order from the Apple Online Store, and Apple authorised resellers and retailers like Switch, Machines, Epicentre and Senheng.

You'll also get a choice of colours, something iPhones haven't really offered many of outside of silver, black, gold, and rose gold for ages.

Despite having one lens, iPhone XR is capable of shooting Portrait Mode photos thanks to powerful combination of custom-tuned software and hardware, including Apple's Neural Engine. The iPhone XR is the cheapest 2018 iPhone Apple introduced, with prices starting at $749 for the 64GB version. As far as last year's iPhone 8 Plus goes, Apple on its website confirms it lasts about the same as iPhone 7 Plus.

This essentially means iPhone XR will be capable of handling the graphic intensive games and Augmented Reality-based apps, just like iPhone XS and iPhone XS. The iPhone Xr is available in six stylish colors.
