The 2018 Apple iPhone lineup consists of the iPhone XS Max (review), iPhone XS and the iPhone XR and the Apple iPhone XR is now up for pre-orders in India. The iPhone XR could be considered the more affordable of the three iPhones launched this year. The device gets toned down hardware in comparison with its siblings like a “Liquid Retina” display, which is basically an LCD panel, and a single rear camera. It does sport the same Face ID setup as the iPhone X, but it’s faster due to the new SoC. The device does come in an array of colours to choose from.
