iPhone XR: True Apple Upgrade At A Cheaper Price

Top analysts have claimed that Apple is likely to sell its cheaper iPhone XR faster than iPhone XS and XS Max globally, and India is no different

If you skipped buying luxury Apple iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max simply because your pocket did not allow, here comes iPhone XR in India that starts from Rs 76,900 and houses most of the Next-Gen features available in the costlier iPhones.

Top analysts have claimed that Apple is likely to sell its cheaper iPhone XR faster than iPhone XS and XS Max globally, and India is no different.

iPhone XR that went on sale from October 19 will be available at the Apple authorised resellers in India from October 26 in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models in black, white, blue, yellow, coral and "(Product)RED" colours.

With all-screen glass and an aluminium design featuring a 6.1-inch display which is touted as "the most advanced LCD in a smartphone," the XR houses A12 Bionic chip with next-generation "Neural Engine", which unlocks new experiences for immersive augmented reality (AR), games and photography.

Let us find out why iPhone XR is an easy upgrade from iPhone X or older Apple variants.

The display has rounded corners that follow a beautiful curved design. According to the company, the device has the most durable front glass ever in a smartphone along with a colour-matched, aerospace-grade aluminium band.

The new back-light design allows the display to extend into the corners, enabling a larger LCD than ever before in an iPhone.

"True Tone" technology uses an advanced ambient light sensor to subtly adjust the white balance onscreen to match the colour temperature of the light around us.

Result? Images on the display looked as natural as on a printed page, thus reducing eye strain.

The largest LCD ever in an iPhone has a footprint that falls between iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

In the camera section, the iPhone XR with 12MP rear camera produced much better low-light performance than older iPhones. The rear camera supports three lighting effects: Natural, Studio and Contour.

The 7MP front camera also delivered advanced Portrait mode with sophisticated "bokeh" and "Depth Control" for stunning portraits. The "Smart HDR" feature brought more highlight and shadow detail across images.

The "Depth Control" feature lets users adjust the depth of field both in real-time preview and post-capture.

The iPhone XR is water resistant, with a rating of IP67, and protects against everyday spills including coffee, tea and soda.

For music lovers, iPhone XR delivers wider stereo sound for an immersive cinematic experience. It uses the four built-in mics to record stereo sound.

The glass back of iPhone XR allows faster wireless charging and improved off-axis performance even when your iPhone is off-centre on a wireless charging pad.

iPhone XR shoots good-quality videos, with better low-light performance and extended dynamic range in video modes up to 30 fps.

The A12 Bionic chip with the next-generation "Neural Engine" uses real-time Machine Learning (ML) to transform the experience of photos, gaming and Augmented Reality.

If you want to experiment with new apps on XR, try "Memrise" -- an app that features more than 200 courses teaching Chinese, Spanish, Arabic, Italian, and more. 

Point your iPhone at an object, take a photo and "Memrise" will identify it in your chosen language.

"Brainapse" is another informative learning app which helps in exploring the anatomy, structure and functions of the human skull and brain using AR.

Users can explore the external and internal parts of skull, brain and brain cells, learn about the functions of brain cells, and experience how our brain communicates with the five senses.

Conclusion: At this price point, iPhone XR will give you a near identical performance of an iPhone XS or XS Max. Those outside of the Apple ecosystem can also try this variant to enter the iOS family.

Aim to buy the "(PRODUCT)RED" variant as a portion of your purchase will go to the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa.
