There are just three days left until pre-orders of the iPhone XR commence, and you'll just have to wait around a week more when the sales actually begin.

The XR starts at $1229 for the 64GB model, rises to $1299 for the 128GB model, which makes you wonder why anyone would bother with the 64GB model, and rises to $1479 for the 256GB model.

DigiTimes has a mixed track record in terms of quoting inside information and industry gossip; according to it, quite a number of Taiwan-based suppliers that are engaged with Apply are still unsure about the orders for the new iPhone series for the rest of the year. As per communication by Airtel, the iPhone XR will be delivered to pre-ordering customers on October 26.

And the iPhone XR is unlike the more affordable handsets Apple has offered in the past.

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

On to the iPhone XS Max, we're looking at prices of RM4991, RM5591 and RM6491 for the 64GB, 256GB and 512GB versions, respectively. While the first two are already available for purchase, the more affordable phone was scheduled to arrive in the second half of October. Also missing is the more durable steel frame as the iPhone XS and XS Max, with the stronger material being replaced with more scratch and bending prone aluminum.

The only difference is how the phones zoom.The iPhone XR lacks a telephoto lens, so it can only achieve 3x digital zoom.

The iPhone XR was among the trio of devices the company launched last month. The new iPhone XR features a 6.1-inch (1792×828 pixel resolution) Retina LCD display.

The "Depth Control" lets users adjust the depth of field both in real-time preview and post-capture. Like its 2019 siblings, it's powered by the A12 Bionic chip.

iPhone XR preorders kicked off this morning at 12:01 a.m. PT. The front camera also houses a faster Face ID system.
