'The new iPhone XR has a gorgeous new aerospace-grade aluminium and glass enclosure that has IP67 protection from liquids and dust, long all-day battery life and comes in six beautiful finishes. The iPhone XR makes it possible for even more people to have the great experience of the latest iPhone X technology, in beautiful new designs, at a more affordable price,' said Philip Schiller, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing.

the iPhone XR comes in six new finishes: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (PRODUCT)RED. It is splash- and water-resistant rated IP67 and protects against everyday spills including coffee, tea and soda.

A portion of proceeds for the iPhone XR (PRODUCT)RED purchases will go directly to Global Fund HIV/AIDS grants that provide testing, counselling, treatment and prevention programs with a specific focus on eliminating transmission of the virus from mothers to their babies.

The iPhone XR supports fast and fluid iPhone gestures like tap to wake, swipe up to the home screen, swipe down to access notifications and the Control Centre and the new haptic touch feature for pressing on the home screen to instantly launch the camera or flashlight.

The integrated A12 Bionic features a six-core fusion architecture with two performance cores that are up to 15 per cent faster, four efficiency cores that are up to 50 per cent more efficient, a four-core GPU that is up to 50 per cent faster and an Apple-designed Image Signal Processor (ISP), video encoder. The Face ID is faster on iPhone XR than previous generation devices. Consumers can use Apple Pay, gain access to secure apps and use many more features with just a simple glance.

iPhone XR features a 12-megapixel f/1.8 aperture wide-angle lens with an all-new sensor, delivering faster auto-focus, and enables bokeh effect with just a single lens with new Depth Control that allows users to adjust the depth of field both in real-time preview and post-capture.

The iPhone XR comes with iOS 12, offering new AR experiences, new Animoji and Memoji. Apple has also introduced Screen Time that helps customers understand and take control of the time they spend interacting with their iOS devices. Siri Shortcuts give any app the ability to work with Siri, and new privacy features help protect users from being tracked on the web.
