Design iPhone Xr

Again, we say goodbye to the familiar Apple home button with the iPhone Xr. This home button is replaced by an edge-to-edge display. The design is similar to that of the iPhone X, except for the fact that the edges of the iPhone Xr are even thinner. The glass of the iPhone Xr is made of the same glass as the iPhone Xs: the strongest glass ever to be used in a smartphone. This glass casing also makes it possible to wirelessly charge your device. This glass casing comes in 6 different colors: black, white, blue, RED, coral, and yellow. The front of the screen has a small notch where you'll find the True Depth camera, the speaker, and the ambient light sensor.

The screen

Screen iPhone Xr

The Apple iPhone Xr has a brand new 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display. This is the most advanced LCD display on the market and is also the largest LCD screen ever on an iPhone. The Apple iPhone Xr has a larger screen than the 5.5-inch screen of the iPhone 8 Plus. The size of the iPhone Xr isn't larger, but smaller than that of the iPhone 8 Plus. You'll get more screen and less size. Thanks to True Tone, the white balance of the screen matches the ambient light of your room. You see true-to-life colors from every angle. Want to unlock your iPhone? Thanks to Face ID, you can do so with 1 glance on your screen.

The processor

On the outside, the iPhone Xr looks beautiful and improved, but on the inside too a lot has changed in comparison to older iPhone models. Here, we find the same chip as in the iPhone Xs. This is the fastest and most powerful chip to be used in the iPhone up till now. This chip is equipped with a Neutral Engine of the next generation. Maybe this doesn't really ring a bell, but Neutral Engine allows for amazing Augmented Reality experiences, the most beautiful portraits with depth division, and speed with everything you do. This means graphics performance is also up to 50% faster.

The camera

Camera iPhone Xr

The Apple iPhone Xr is equipped with a single rear camera. Don't worry, Apple created software to make the single camera of the iPhone Xr almost as functional as the dual camera of the iPhone Xs. The Apple iPhone Xr is equipped with a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens and a 7-megapixel True Depth front camera. Both cameras are equipped with a portrait mode with depth division. Thanks to the improved Bokeh effect, photos taken with this mode look even more professional with their subtle blurry background. It's even possible to adjust the depth-of-field effect after you've taken a photo.

The battery life.
