Apple's cheaper iPhone XR to generate more revenue

While most analysts and industry gurus have given the green light towards a great sale of this $749 LCD-touting model, we do have some skeptics in the supply chain department that are still not sure about how great the iPhone XR will do once it is officially released in the market.

The wait for the new iPhone XR is nearly over.

Apple kicks off their iPhone XR pre-orders on Friday, October 19 at 12:01AM PDT/3:01AM EDT, which means Canadians will be staying up late tonight or setting an alarm to wake up. Apple says the glass is the most durable ever on a smartphone. It will be sold in Black, Blue, Coral, PRODUCT (RED), White, and Yellow colour options.

The retailer has an agreement with FNB, whereby the XR can be bought with an FNB credit card for R499 a month over 37 months for the 64GB version, R535 a month for the 128GB version, and R610 a month for the 256GB version. The new Liquid Retina display is rumored to be the reason for such a long delay of the iPhone XR.

Apple iPhone XR is the most "affordable" iPhone launched this year.

The iPhone XR will be available for purchase in Israel on November 1, while the following countries will get the phone a day later: Armenia, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, South Korea, Macau, Maldives, Myanmar, Ukraine and Vietnam. As for the 256GB model, the total comes up to RM5191, and the 512GB variant will set you back RM6091. As we've mentioned before, the iPhone XR offers users interested in a new device a brand new form factor at a price point that won't necessarily break the bank.

For selfies, the iPhone XR sports a 7MP selfie camera with a f/2.2 aperture along with a TrueDepth camera for FaceID.

Like the iPhone Xs, the iPhone Xr does not have any home button and relies on Face ID for biometric authentication.
