IPhone XR: True Apple upgrade at a cheaper price

Sales of iPhone XR begin in Russia

Performance: The primary reason the iPhone XR doesn't come across as a big compromise is that it is still powered by Apple's A12 Bionic chipset. That said, if you truly use your phone for photography a lot, or are an A/V fanatic, it may be worth shelling out the extra money - OLED screens do look slightly better.

Despite sporting the "most affordable" tag, the iPhone XR costs Rs. 76,900 for the 64GB variant. It's rad - and on many levels nicer with cooler colours that are more subdued than the wild vibrancies of the OLED screen on the iPhone XS. Apple could rely on the XR for unit sales growth because of the reticence of some consumers to pay $1,000 or more for the XS and XS Max it released in September. The official launch is slated for November 2. There's more display than the regular XS, but the phone itself is also larger - just not as large as the Max. So Apple had to get a bit creative during those times when you want to shut down your iPhone. You lose 3D Touch, but that's a feature that many have called useless for years.

Flash floods: 18 killed in this Middle East country
At least 19 people died and another 35 wounded over a flash flood near Jordan's Dead Sea, the officials said on Friday . In a message on his Twitter account, the monarch said that "the pain of each father, mother and family is my pain".

The iPhone XS died after 9:41 hours in the same test, while the Max version went for nearly an hour longer at 10:38 hours. According to iFixit, the screws don't match the color of the device and the SIM card tray is also lower than that of the iPhone XS and it is modular which is the first for an iPhone. The XR screen comes in at 6.1 inches - just between the XS, which measures 5.8 inches, and the 6.5-inch XS Max.

And while the iPhone XS launch saw buyers ponying up for premium features including the Super Retina display and dual 12-megapixel rear cameras, the iPhone XR still has its own selling points.

'Celtic can beat Leipzig at home', says Rodgers
He said: "No matter the result tomorrow we'll go into the game at the weekend with confidence and looking to reach another final".

But if we weren't coming to it from a more expensive, higher-specced phone, it wouldn't bother us... although you don't need a more expensive model to beat it if you leave the Apple fold. In fact, there are some who would even consider the older iPhone X as competition, thanks to a few price cuts being offered by some retailers.

You can still take a portrait shot and have the background attractively blurred to keep the focus on the subject, but unlike with the iPhone XS, you can't take pictures of objects and animals in the same way. The iPhone XS has a much more vibrant and brighter display, though you will spot the difference only if you've used an X/XS/XS Max earlier. Some of the newest features include the bionic chip, wireless charging and stronger glass protecting the iPhone from damage.
