What is the iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR is one of Apple’s new iPhones for 2019. While the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are certainly the flagship products, the iPhone XR offers a similar user experience with some scaled-down specs. The iPhone XR uses the same processor as the iPhone XS and iPhone XS, Max, as well as Face ID and the True Depth camera, but uses different display technology and a single rear camera. Its sides are also made out of aluminum, rather than stainless steel.

What Apple iPhone XR can do:
Apple iPhone XR comes with latest iOS 12.
It offers 6.1-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a good screen-to-body ratio of 79% and Multitouch in it.
Its display has average pixel density for its HD resolution(~326 PPI) with 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
The display is protected by Scratch-resistant glass, oleophobic coating.
Supports True-tone display, Wide color gamut display, 120 Hz touch-sensing.
It is built with glass front/back glass which is surrounded by the aluminum frame(700 series).
The device is slightly heavy to carry with 194g and 7.3 mm in thickness.
It supports dual SIM(Nano-SIM & e-SIM).
It provides 3 GB of RAM for uninterrupted multitasking.
Apple iPhone XR has equipped with powerful Apple A12 Bionic Chipset and the performance is very smooth with no lags.
It encompasses with Hexa-core processor and Apple GPU (4-core graphics) GPU. So gaming performance is stunning.
What should I know about the new A12 Bionic processor?
The A12 Bionic is Apple’s latest and greatest in-house system-on-a-chip (SoC). Like its predecessor, it uses a combination of multiple high-energy processing cores for more intensive tasks, as well as multiple high-efficiency cores for light work like checking email and browsing the web. It’s a six-core CPU, and uses a new, eight-core Neural Engine to power the machine learning systems on the iPhone XR that can process up to five trillion (yep) operations per second.
The processor allows for more powerful graphics performance, better photo processing, and real-time machine learning.
It offers 12 MP (f/1.8, 28mm, 1/2.55″, 1.4µm, OIS, PDAF) with additional features like Quad-LED dual-tone flash, HDR (photo/panorama).
It offers 7 MP front-facing camera with additional features like f/2.2, 32m.
Supports quad HD video recording at 2160p@24/30/60fps, 1080p@30/60/120/240fps, HDR video, stereo sound rec.
What’s new with the camera?
If you were hoping the dual-camera system on the iPhone X would make its way over the iPhone XR, I’ve got some bad news: the iPhone XR only uses a single rear camera like the iPhone 8. That being said, it still shoots up to 4K at 60 frames per second and is optically stabilized.
The camera also benefits from the new power of the A12 Bionic processor, improved sensors, and improved image signal processor. The camera is able to capture even more detail, despite keeping the 12 megapixels that have been present in the iPhone cameras for years now. It features Smart HDR, which automatically makes improvements to photos using machine learning.
The iPhone XR is also able to take Portrait Mode photos, despite the fact that it has only a single camera.
It has the battery capacity of 2942 mAh(Non-removable) which is good for moderate usage. Supports fast battery charging, 50% in 30 min and Qi Wireless charging.
