The iPhone XR


The anticipated Apple event of the year, in September 2018, announced the arrival of 3 added devices to the beloved iPhone collection we have come to know and love: the iPhone XS, XS Max and the special XR which did turn a few heads with a few diverse attributes. Read on as we take a look at the iPhone XR:   

The iPhone XR is nothing short of amazing in their 194g pristine, power packed aluminum packaged devices that are available in a range of colours: black, red, yellow, blue and coral, which takes quite a different turn from the original iPhone colours that we’re used to. The 6.1 inch LCD screen allows boundless room without the home button similar to its predecessor the iPhone X, which brings forth Apple’s latest bezel-less design.

The XR’s internal features provide you with iOS 12 and Apple A12 Bionic chipset with either 64, 128 or 256 GB and a solid 3GB of RAM with a non-removable Li-Ion 2942 mAh battery.

So, what’s so special about this device?

Rumoured to be one of Apple’s best single cameras at 12MP. The A12 Bionic chipset can be thanked for great camera quality; providing smart photography with the combination of the lens, machine learning and software which improves the overall quality, depth and gives you even greater options for your portraits. The cash price finds you paying around R15 999 for the 64GB model which is Apple’s lowest priced device this year. The budget smartphone now supports wireless charging and IP68 rated water, splash, and dust resistance.

With the iPhone XR you can finally purchase a modern smartphone on a friendly budget without compromising on quality and name within the world of Apple.
