IPhone XR pre-orders are now live

Apple iPhone Xr – South African pricing

Apple iPhone Xr – South African pricing

The iPhone XR will begin shipping on October 26th in more than 50 countries and territories, including the USA, and that's also when in-store sales will begin.

The Apple iPhone XR has 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storage variants now priced at Rs 75,040, Rs 80,040 and Rs 90,040 respectively on the Airtel store.

On Friday, PhoneBuff shared a video comparing the battery life of the iPhone XS Max to Samsung's Galaxy Note 9, with both phones having been put through actions to drain the battery, from placing phone calls and sending texts to browsing the internet.

Which model are you getting? It runs the same A12 Bionic chip with next-generation Neural Engine that powers iPhone XS. It's certainly a welcomed move, and demonstrates how important the iPhone XR is in developing and growth markets.

Two big full-screen iPhones available, one more to go, as the more budget focused single-lens iPhone X gets priced and dated for Australia.

Walmart owned membership Warehouse has just announced an iPhone Xr deal.

Customers who are willing to pre-order the iPhone XR only need to pay a down payment of Rs 14,999.

Over at Optus, the approach is pretty consistent, shifting people to the leasing program and not one where you get to own the product at the end, unless you offer to buy the phone at market value, which seems a little like a cop out. So, if you are really into the camera, then the last year's iPhone X still a better option over the iPhone XR. Additionally, Airtel is also offering data benefits and other incentives with the handset.

Vodafone is has allowed consumers to separate phone repayments from their selected plan, with the iPhone XR (64GB) available on an 36 month interest-free payment plan for $34.13 per month.

Same processor/performance: iPhone XR may be the least expensive in the lot but it does not compromise on the performance bit.
