"While it's now the cheapest new iPhone of the lot, the iPhone XR gets a large 6.1" edge to edge display that uses IPS instead of OLED.

If you're using a 4.7-inch iPhone 7 or older, would you consider getting the iPhone XR?

Both are edge-to-edge displays just like the iPhone X which means that there are no bezels save for a notch at the top which houses the iPhones front-facing camera and its Face ID facial-recognition system.

With these features contributing to the lower price point on the Xr, the Xr does boast the same A12 Bionic chip found on the iPhone Xs and Xs Max, while battery life is noted to be one and a half hours more per day than the iPhone 8 Plus.

Speaking of which, let's talk about the not-so-headline-grabbing iPhone XR. Like those, the phone doesn't have a home button; rather, you simply tap to wake it and swipe up to return to the home screen. The back of the phone is also glass, which allows for wireless charging. While we still don't know what the R stands for (Regular, Rookie, Rad?), it's obvious this is the iPhone for Apple fans with a smaller budget, with a design that isn't quite as flashy, a single 12-megapixel camera and a 6.1in LCD display.

The iPhone XS models unveiled Wednesday come with an "eSIM" feature that supports two cellular services and easier switching between carriers, but that technology won't be available in China, Hong Kong, and Macau. I took some software bokeh shots, and they are typical of the kind: faces are silhouetted quite well, but flyaway bits of hair got caught in the bokeh distortion field. On an annual basis, the number of iPhones the company has been selling recently has barely budged and is actually down from what it sold three years ago.
