With a starting price of $749 Dollars, the iPhone XR is the cheapest among the new iPhone trio.

The iPhone XR measures 150.90 x 75.70 x 8.30 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 194.00 grams.

The iPhone XR is available in six colours: black, white, blue, yellow, coral and (PRODUCT) RED, while pricing starts at $1029 CAD for 64GB, $1099 for 128GB and $1239 for 256GB models. The 128GB variant will be sold for Rs 81,900, whereas the 256GB variant will retail for Rs 91,900. Now the spotlight turns to the iPhone XR.

The iPhone XR sports a 6.1-inch edge-to-edge LCD display with 1792 x 828 pixel resolution and 326 PPI.
