Apple has not provided yet cases for the iPhone XR, which is a first, because new iPhones would be released with matching cases.

Availability of the iPhone XR is from October 26 with pre-orders happening right now, and while you can get the phone outright, telcos will of course have them, too. Indian telecom operator, Airtel is now taking the preorders for iPhone XR on its online store. The pre-ordered iPhone XRs is expected to be delivered to customers on October 26, 2018. And the base version of the iPhone Xs Max in the Ukraine is 44 999 hryvnia.

A quick search on Craigslist or eBay shows that you can find a used iPhone X for around $750, the same price as a 64GB iPhone XR, not including tax.

Apple iPhone XR looks just like the expensive iPhone XS and iPhone XS.

The latest iPhone XR smartphone comes with a 6.1 inch Liquid Retina display, a 12MP wide-angle back camera with Smart HDR, IP67 dust and waterproof protection, A12 Bionic chip, Face ID and a battery life that lasts one and a half hours longer than the iPhone 8 Plus.

But there was another source of help that came from outside of the Red Sox organization, although not too far removed. After 108 wins in the regular season and seven more this October, the Red Sox are four wins away from a title.

Pre-orders for the iPhone XR started shortly after midnight pacific time.

In terms of features, the iPhone XR has a single-lens glass-backed design and is available in a bunch of colors including red, blue, copper and yellow. You'll pay more for the 128GB and 256GB models, but comparatively, you'll still save, with 128GB costing $1299 and 256GB fetching a $1479 price tag in Australia, all under the $1500 tag that flagship phones are so regularly hitting these days.

That said, let's focus on what iPhone XR brings to the table. So, if you are really into the camera, then the last year's iPhone X still a better option over the iPhone XR.

Not having this on the phone means you do miss the all-important 2x optical zoom functionality and this camera was a big part of Apple's new portrait mode.
