The cheapest iPhone that was launched this year, iPhone XR, managed to remain under the spotlight with its low pricing - serving an opportunity to upgrade for those who were critical of iPhone XS-series pricing.

Pre-orders for the iPhone XR officially open this Friday, October 19.

Kuo also believes that iPhone XR shipments will be up in the first quarter of 2019, which is usually a slow quarter for Apple. Incidentally, for those that may be new to iPhone, it's the latter iPhone XR which will ship later this month with the 6.1-inch "Liquid Retina" display based on LCD display technology.

This means the iPhone XR will cost almost R6,000 cheaper than Apple's premium iPhone XS, and R8,000 cheaper than the iPhone XS Max.

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 iPhone XR has its own appeal and it is likely to attract a lot of buyers even in a market such as India.
