  • Apple iPhone Xr – South African pricing

The iPhone XR's battery life is rated at 1.5 hours longer than the iPhone 8 Plus, which already gets slightly more use per charge than the iPhone X. What's even more interesting is that the iPhone XR should theoretically get even longer battery life than the new iPhone XS Max thanks to the difference in display resolution. A seven-layer colour process gives the glass back nuanced hues in six attractive finishes, black, white, blue, yellow, coral and (PRODUCT) RED.

The new Apple iPhone XR cost around $749 if you want to buy a 64 GB model, whereas if you want storage up to 128 GB then it will cost around $799, whereas some people are very addicted to videos and photos, therefore for them XR has the maximum storage version, it has 256 GB of storage which will cost around $899.

Around a month after the other two iPhones made their retail debut, Apple's other more wallet-friendly model is arriving, hitting Apple Stores and telcos from Friday, October 26, bringing numerous same features shared with the more premium XS and XS Max, but in a slightly different body.

iPhone XR is the cheapest amongst the high-end devices of 2018 from Google and Apple. Granted, the iPhone XR is still relatively pricey, but it's a price that doesn't carry as much heft as its XS siblings.

The new Apple iPhone XR is on display at the Steve Jobs Theater after an event to announce new products Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018, in Cupertino, Calif. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will also be available for pre-order in more than 30 additional countries and territories including Chile, Colombia, Malaysia and Thailand on October 19, and will be coming to South Korea and over 10 other countries and territories on November 2.

As far as features are concerned, the iPhone XR is an absolute beast and sports the same hardware as Apple's iPhone XS models. That means you'll have to get on a new installment contract with one of those carriers. Additionally, Airtel is also offering data benefits and other incentives with the handset. It will be available in three sizes, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.

Same processor/performance: iPhone XR may be the least expensive in the lot but it does not compromise on the performance bit.
