Indeed, yesterday people were buzzing that the iPhone Xr offered nearly everything notable about the iPhone X. It has the edge-to-edge display, Face ID and a portrait mode-capable camera (even if it doesn't have dual lenses).

Apple's removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack has been considered a controversial and user-hostile decision beginning with the iPhone 7, so it's no surprise the latest devices are also missing the port. It get's a "Liquid Retina" 6.1-inch display with 1792 x 828 resolution and 326ppi pixel density. Techradar's Apple iPhone XR hands on can be enjoyed in full, at a time that suits you, right now.

The iPhone Xs Max (iPhone 11,6) impresses even further in Geekbench tests, thanks to that extra gigabyte of RAM.

Since both the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max have same specs, it means both of them feature 4GB of RAM.

An iOS 12 mobile operating system that will power new iPhones unveiled on Wednesday, and be pushed out as an update to prior models, has new features to reduce how much they distract people from the real world. They come in gold, silver, and space gray.

The cheaper iPhone XR pricing could lower average selling prices, but be offset slightly by a higher unit forecast, analysts added. It also packs the same Apple A12 Bionic with 6 cores along with 3GB RAM. The official Apple website reflects the new price list.

The rear cameras in the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max have the same resolution as the iPhone X's dual lens camera, but that's all they have in common here.

Best yet, the aluminum-and-glass iPhone XR shows its colorful personality, coming in blue, yellow, coral and red (through Project Red), in addition to buttoned-up white and black. With Apple killing it, the iPhone X becomes the shortest living iPhone that Apple has ever introduced. The iPhone XR also promises 1.5 hours more battery life than the iPhone 8 Plus. And if you want to get AppleCare+ with Theft and Loss coverage, it'll cost you $299 or $14.99 per month for 24 months.

To make way for the brand new iPhone Xr, Xs and Xs Max, Apple has discontinued the iPhone SE, 6S/6S Plus and even the 10th anniversary 'X, ' which only debuted last September.
