iPhone XR (stylized as iPhone Xr, Roman numeral "X" pronounced "ten") is a smartphone designed and manufactured by Apple Inc. It is the twelfth generation of the iPhone. It was announced by Apple CEO Tim Cook on September 12, 2018, at Steve Jobs Theater in the Apple Park campus, alongside the higher-priced iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. Pre-orders will begin on October 19, 2018, with an official release on October 26, 2018.[4]

The phone has a 154 mm (6.06-inch) LCD display, branded as "6.1-inch", and is the least expensive device in Apple's iPhone X line of devices, with a starting price of US$749/CAD$1029/GB£749/849/RMB6499 in the United States/Canada/United Kingdom/Germany/China. It features the same processor as the XS and XS Max, the Apple A12 Bionic chip built with a 7 nanometer process, which Apple claims is the "smartest and most powerful chip" ever put into a smartphone.[4]

It will be available in six colors: black, white, blue, yellow, coral (a shade of pink and orange), and Product Red. The XR is the second iPhone device to be released in yellow and blue, the first being the iPhone 5C.[4]

Internationally, the phone will support dual SIMs through a Nano-SIM and an eSIM. In mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau, dual Nano-SIM (in a single tray) will be offered instead.[5][6]



The XR has a similar design to the iPhone X. However, it has larger bezels, an aluminum frame and is available in a wide variety of colors. Similar to other X-branded iPhones, all models come with a black front.

The XR has similar hardware to the XS but with some features removed to reduce the price. Instead of 3D Touch, the XR comes with Haptic Touch where the user long presses until they feel a vibration from the Taptic Engine. The XR also has an LCD display known as Liquid Retina instead of the OLED screen used on the X, XS and XS Max. The display on the XR is 326 PPI compared with 458 PPI on other X-branded iPhones.[7] The screen-to-body ratio of the XR is 79.3%, much higher than the 67.5% of the iPhone 8 Plus but still lower than most other phones in its price category.[8] Unlike most other phones in the X-series, the XR ships with a single camera on the back on the phone, featuring similar specs to the primary camera on the XS and XS Max.[7]


The iPhone XR will be shipped with iOS 12 already installed out of the box.[9] iOS 12 was announced by Tim Cook the same day as the iPhone XR[10]. iOS 12 was released to the public to be installed on iOS devices on September 17, 2018.[11]
