The iPhone XR is available in more than 50 countries and territories.

The iPhone XR was among the trio of devices the company launched last month. It's not all bad news though: one camera advantage of the XR over the XS is that you don't need to back up as far when taking Portrait photos since there's only one lens being used, and all depth recognition is being done via software rather than the dual-lens hardware.

Apple iPhone XR is priced at Rs 76,900 for 64GB variant, which is not small sum but affordable when compared against the iPhone XS and XS Max.

"It delivers all day battery life, lasting up to an hour and a half longer than iPhone 8 Plus", Apple said.

Are you planning to pre-order iPhone XR or are you already rocking the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max?

More than a month after Apple originally held its special iPhone media event, pre-orders for Apple's iPhone XR are finally live. Taking a look at the iPhone XR's specs and price, the device arguably offers prospective buyers more bang for the buck than most iPhone models we've seen in recent years. It'll be available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage options as well as black, blue, yellow, white, coral, and red color options. It is clear that iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max failed to take the world by storm, which automatically places a lot of burden and expectations on iPhone XR to increase demand of iPhones around the globe. Unlike the more expensive versions, however, it utilizes a cheaper LCD panel and only has a single rear-facing camera.

Interested buyers can head over to Flipkart, Amazon.in or Paytm Mall to pre-book the iPhone XR online on Friday. The 3.5mm-to-Lightning dongle will not be included in the box this time.
