Apple iPhone XR: An upgrade over iPhone 8

Apple iPhone Xr – South African pricing

Apple recently launched three new variants of its current generation iPhones - the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. However, unlike the XS, the XR has a 6.1-inch LCD screen, it doesn't come with a 3D Touch or a secondary camera, or with a stainless steel frame. The 128GB version is priced at $799, while the 256GB version costs $899.

Apple has posted an announcement outlining the expecting opening of preorders for the iPhone XR this Friday, Oct. 19, while also adding that the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will be landing in over 30 new countries on the same day. Alongside this chip is the Imagine Signal Processor which also enhances the images take on the iPhone XR.

Telstra's cheapest iPhone XR (64GB) plan costs $94 per month ($59 plan + $35 phone payment), on a standard 24 month postpaid plan.

In the imaging department, the iPhone XR offers a single 12MP f/1.8 camera at the rear. That means you'll have to get on a new installment contract with one of those carriers.

That said, let's focus on what iPhone XR brings to the table.

The iPhone XR is out for pre-order now - if you want the best deal, then our friends at TechRadarhave all the information you need.

Over at Optus, the approach is pretty consistent, shifting people to the leasing program and not one where you get to own the product at the end, unless you offer to buy the phone at market value, which seems a little like a cop out. As far as last year's iPhone 8 Plus goes, Apple on its website confirms it lasts about the same as iPhone 7 Plus. Additionally, Airtel is also offering data benefits and other incentives with the handset. Instead, only the usual AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon options will be available when preordering the iPhone XR from Apple.

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