Unboxing of Apple’s new colorful iPhone XR

The iPhone XR will hit the stores on Friday, and the latest iPad, Macbook and other new offerings will be launched in an event in NY next Tuesday.

Featuring an edge-to-edge display and a single rear camera, iPhone XR is Apple's lower-cost alternative to the iPhone XS.

The prevailing narrative surrounding the new iPhone Xr is that it's a disappointment. That's a function of a lower resolution screen and lesser RAM which sucks less power while retaining all the performance benefits of the iPhone XS. The other models feature a 2x telephoto (zoom) lens alongside a wide-angle lens. In any case, either phone should give you enough battery life for routine use.

But for all the ground it concedes, the XR also has a feature that will endear it to many - its battery life.

Talk about offers at the Indian store, here you will get a 5% cashback on the payment of City and Axis Bank Credit Card with the convenience of the non-interest EMI on the Bajaj Finserve card. Now, Apple's comparatively low-priced iPhone XR has made it out into the wild. iFixit got its hands on the device to take it apart to give us a peek on what Apple has jam-packed inside the device.

Once your books are synced, you can leave your iPhone at home or in your gym locker and listen to audiobooks directly from the Audible app on your Apple Watch. Subtle shifts in position aside, they're the same.

New color filters in the camera produce truer and richer colors, while a new flash technique tries to light the foreground and background more evenly.

This is essentially the "Plus" version of the iPhone XS.

No, this is about the light, framing and lens distortion of the shots themselves. With just one camera, Apple still enables Portrait Mode-the setting that tries to mimic SLR cameras by applying artificial blur around a subject.

When you see an iPhone launch event, you see the Apple Store staff being roused and hyped up for what will be a massive day, and this is most evident for Apple's major iPhone launch each year. Differences are subtle, though.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard of Audible, the industry leader in audiobooks.

Two more points of comparison. But it also results in a slightly bulbous effect, where the nose and face are slightly out of proportion. If you want to pay for your iPhone using a payment plan, you have a lot to choose from.

Once again, we've given it a tough lighting situation - a subject in shade, but with bright sunlight behind.

The iPhone XR is significantly heavier than iPhones past - it weighs in at 194 grams. In terms of size, it falls right between the iPhone XS and XS Max - with a length of 150.9 mm and width of 75.9 mm, although at 8.3 mm, it is the thickest of the three devices. It seems like the better photo.

Shortly after iPhone XR deliveries and in-store collections started this morning, Instagram and Twitter began filling with pictures of excited customers, such as Daniel Haar and Chih Hung unboxing their new colorful devices. Not really. Do we still need to check the build?

It's a amusing conundrum then. They're also completely reliant on software to zoom in on subjects.

The XR screen also falls short of full high definition, unlike the XS displays, although it can display video at 720p quality. The Portrait mode works well (powered by the 3D-scanning Face ID sensor). Let us know in the comments. In reality, it will be hard to make them any bigger.
