The third iPhone that Apple introduced at the Xs and Xs Max event is the colorful iPhone Xr. The phone, however, offers similar internals at a significantly lower price point compared to the iPhone XS series.

In the United Kingdom you can get iPhone XR with the protection of AppleCare+ and have the opportunity to upgrade to a new iPhone every year.

For the iPhone XR, it appears as though they're modifying that strategy a bit. We can expect that to happen sometime later today. Buyers can avail 5% cashback on EMI plans from Citi Credit Cards and Axis Bank. Check the table below to find out what time iPhone XR will be available for pre-ordering. There is also the option of no-cost EMI from Bajaj Finserv. We can expect other operators like Jio and Vodafone-Idea to reveal their pre-order details soon. This brings down the effective starting price to Rs 73,055. It will be available in three sizes, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. Indian consumers can consider pre-booking the iPhone XR model via e-retail platforms Flipkart, Amazon India, Paytm Mall, Airtel's online e-store as well as authorised Apple resellers like Imagine.

While the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max come in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage options, the iPhone XR will be available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage options.

The added production may indeed make new dreams come true for buyers, but only for a select few. Specifically, 350 additional copies will built with production now slated to stretch into 2022.

Apart from India, the iPhone XR will go on sale in dozens of countries starting October 26. These include US, UK, Canada, China, Australia, and more.

The wait for the new iPhone XR is nearly over.

The device's 6.1-inch display features a resolution of 1,792 x 828 and supports Tap to Wake functionality. Unlike the two XS models, the iPhone XR features a single rear camera, Haptic Touch (rather than 3D Touch), LTE Advanced, an aluminum frame, and an IP67 water-resistance rating.

The camera also packs a f/1.8 aperture wide-angle lens with an all-new sensor, delivering faster auto-focus, while larger and deeper pixels improve image fidelity and low-light performance on photos and videos.
