On one side, analysts claim that this particular variant is going to be the most popular one out of three announced during Apple's keynote, while a different report stating that the tech giant's suppliers are actually cautious for the future.

Apple's cheapest iPhone - the colourful iPhone XR - will cost R15,999 for the 64GB version in South Africa, and will be available in stores on October 26, iStore South Africa revealed on Wednesday.

While everyone is talking about how great and expensive the new iPhone XS and XS Max are, the silent spectator of it all is ready to steal the limelight.

Apple iPhone XR is now available for pre-orders in India. Although it comes under shrewd practice that you're anxious about the future, it is still too early to make out anything of this situation. So all you'll need to do is open the Apple Store app at 8:01am BST on Friday morning and hit order.

Just as Apple, Sаm's Club will start ringing in orders for the phone past midnight Pacific Time, and if you place one by Sunday, October 21, the retailer will give you a sweet gift card of $100 value. The 5.8-inch iPhone XS and 6.5-inch XS Max uses OLED panels. Pricing starts at $749 for a model with 64GB of on-device storage and tops out at $899 should you want 256GB.

Unlike the iPhone XS and XS Max which come in Gold, Silver and Space Gray colours, the iPhone XR gets several attractive colour options that includes White, Black, Blue, Coral, Yellow and (PRODUCT) Red. Also missing is the more durable steel frame as the iPhone XS and XS Max, with the stronger material being replaced with more scratch and bending prone aluminum. She mentions how Portrait mode on the XR only works on human subjects due to the way the single-lens camera operates, and interestingly she also says that the two Stage Light effects in Portrait mode aren't available with the rear-facing camera. The new iPhone XR features an all-screen glass design and comes with an LCD Retina display.
