This year’s iPhones are finally here after months of leaks and reports. Apple unveiled three iPhones at the September event, including iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. In reality, rumors regarding 2018 iPhones started to heat up last year when Apple announced the iPhone X.
This year’s iPhones do not bring in a significant change on the outside. However, there are a lot of new things underneath their glass body. One such thing lies in Apple’s latest A12 Bionic chip. The A12 Bionic is the world’s first 7 nanometer chip that delivers a much-improved performance compared to the last year’s devices. The iPhone XR is a surprise this year, but it remains unknown what the letter R stands for. Apple confirms that the device will carry a much affordable price tag at launch. In reality, the iPhone XR is a great phone that retains what we have loved about the iPhone X while adding a number of new things.
The iPhone XR release is delayed when compared to its siblings. Specifically, you can pre-order the device from October 19 and pick it up at retail stores on October 26. It remains unclear why Apple has pushed the release of the XR. The price of the iPhone XR will start at $749 for the 64GB model, which is $200 cheaper than the iPhone XS. According to sources, Apple will report a strong demand for the XR this year. However, it seems that Apple has foreseen it and is now speeding up production of the device. According to the latest reports, Foxconn, one of Apple’s long-term manufacturing partner, is assembling nearly 300,000 iPhone XR units per day.
Reports also claim that Foxconn is mobilizing thousands of employees in preparation for the expected huge demand for the phone. Today’s reports go against what we heard in previous rumors that Japan Display is getting low orders for LCD panels for the iPhone XR. The iPhone XR sports a 6.1-inch LCD display, but it has premium features like the iPhone XS and XS Max like the A12 Bionic chip or Face ID. In terms of the camera, the phone has a single camera setup on the back, but the camera has a much faster sensor for better photo quality.
