  • Despite the smallest battery iPhone XS Max lasts longer

It's October 19, and Apple has opened up pre-orders for the iPhone XR, the more colorful, less expensive, and slightly less powerful variant of its flagship new phone.

And it also comes in more colours - six to be exact, reminiscent of the iPhone 5C from 2013: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (Product) RED.

It will, however, come in a 128GB model - along with 64GB and 256GB options - which is said is the ideal storage option for a smartphone.

While pre-order for the iPhone XR will begin tomorrow, the device will go on sale starting October 26 across Apple Authorised Resellers in India. The iPhone XR will support gestures as Apple has bid adieu to the home button for its entire line-up for the first time.

This phone features plenty of new technology including a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina edge-to-edge display, wireless charging and new A12 Bionic processor which is now outperforming all of its Android rivals in speed tests.

The iPhone XR pre-bookings listing is now live on IndiaiStore, the official offline partner for Apple in India.
