Apple's cheaper iPhone XR to generate more revenue

Apple Suppliers Continue to Remain Cautious – Believe the iPhone XR Might Not Be a ‘Home Run’ Supply chain on edge with iPhone XR demand

The first wave of iPhone XR reviews are in and based on the early impressions, Apple may have a big hit on its hands.

With good reason, many tech pundits and analysts believe that the iPhone XR will easily be Apple's most popular iPhone model this release cycle.

Having been announced last month at Apple's keynote in Cupertino this new device will finally be available to pre-order from tomorrow and it's an exciting proposition.

The iPhone XR has the same software and the same powerful chip as the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max.

iPhone XR would go on sale in India from October 19 and would be in stores on October 26, starting at Rs 76,900 for the 64GB storage variant.

So far, everyone's raving about the iPhone XR, even if it is lacking a few features. The full payment can be made when the iPhone XR sale begins in India next week.

On the bright side, the phone features the same 50-percent faster A11 Bionic chipset as its more expensive cousins, along with the same new and improved main camera, albeit in a single-camera form factor with one less sensor as compared to the iPhone XS and XS Max.

It's also worth mentioning that Apple's iPhone XR lineup will introduce a bit of much-needed color into the iPhone family.

Apple says the iPhone XR will be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models in white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (PRODUCT) RED starting at £749 from apple.com and Apple Stores.

We know the prices for iPhone XS (Rs 99,900 onwards) and XS Max (Rs 1,09,900 onwards) - these are for the 64GB variants. Nevertheless, the notched 6.1-inch IPS LCD bezel-less display found on the iPhone XR will most likely exhibit the same quality that iPhone LCD displays have been known for. The device comes with an Aluminum frame and glass back body. On the front, the handset gets a 7-megapixel selfie camera with an improved Portrait mode, f/2.2 aperture, an IR camera, and a diffractive beam splitter.
