iPhone XR is the cheapest amongst the high-end devices of 2018 from Google and Apple. And it comes with lesser price tag.

Apple has finally opened Australian pre-orders for its new iPhone XR - the most affordable of its 2018 smartphone trio, releasing almost a month after the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

A phone with IP67 rating can survive water for 30 minutes (1 meter deep), whereas the iPhone XS can also survive up to 30 minutes (2 meters deep).

The Airtel Plan that you get with the iPhone XR offers 100 GB data every month. Introduced with iPhone 6S in 2015, 3D Touch is a pressure-sensitive feature that lets you access key features of an app depending upon degrees of pressure on the screen. It also gets the new Smart HDR feature, which helped the iPhone XS destroy the still very good iPhone X in our photo comparison.

The other colors are available for launch day delivery in the USA, but some areas have stores with a very low supply.

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. These colours are not even available for the expensive iPhone XS which comes in silver, space grey and gold variants.

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

The iPhone XR also gets other improvements over the X like faster LTE and Dual SIM capabilities, again identical to iPhone XS. The company insists it lasts an hour and a half hour longer than the popular iPhone 8 Plus. It is said to deliver up to 15 hours of backup on internet use. T-Mobile isn't included in the offer, but if you were planning to buy your iPhone XR with either AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon, you should certainly consider Sam's Club offer.
