IPhone XR in 2 minutes: All you need to know

An iPhone Xs in front of an iPhone Xs Max showing Super Retina display

The iPhone XS and XS Max will be available to pre-order on Friday September 14, and ship Friday September 21 in the U.S. and other countries. The display, however, is an LCD IPS panel which was used on the older iPhone 8. Yes, that means it's even bigger than the iPhone 8 Plus. It comes equipped with a 12MP wide-angle camera with an all-new sensor and 1.4 million pixels (the same as in the iPhone XS and XS Max). Fortunately, except for an additional sensor, iPhone XR retains all of the software and hardware features like optical image stabilisation and 4K video recording at 24 fps, 30 fps or 60 fps. Here are 5 reasons why you should opt for the largest and most expensive iPhone in history.

The XS has the exact same look and dimensions as the original iPhone X, while the Max is a plus-size variant with a 6.5-inch display.

Apple has not included 3D Touch in the phone.

Instead of swiping to summon Apple's Control Center and tapping the icon, you'll now be able to press dedicated flashlight and camera buttons on your iPhone's lock screen.

Adding on the camera capabilities of the iPhone X with its 12-megapixel dual camera system, iPhone XS and XS Max introduce Smart HDR, which increases detail and dynamic range of photographs.

The iPhone XS Max is a shiny - not blingy - looking smartphone which will surely turn a lot of heads (and not just because of the price tag it carries). The phone is water resistant, it has wireless charging, and no, it has no headphone jack.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick not paying attention to Jalen Ramsey’s trash talk
Jacksonville planned in the previous meeting to let Ramsey cover Gronk when the tight end lined up wide, outside the hash marks. But before the end of his chat with reporters, Ramsey was asked if he expects to line up against Gronkowski on Sunday.

The XS and XS Max both have better stereo speakers with Apple boasting a wider sound profile. It looks like it works well, too, though I didn't have much time to play with it. While last year's premium priced iPhone X helped boost the company's smartphone revenue, the stagnating unit sales are holding back the company's overall growth, and have led to declining market share.

The XR supports Apple's unique dual-SIM solution, which uses one physical and one embedded SIM.

There's also Dual-SIM support but for those outside of China would need to use an e-SIM for the secondary connection.

The major changes from previous models will be greater gearing toward internal upgrades rather than design changes, with all models improved with the fitting of the advanced A12 chip.

You can pre-order the iPhone Xr beginning October 19 and it will ship on October 26. The difference between the XR and the XS comes primarily in the screen, camera, and modem.

The biggest update to the camera however comes in the form of the iPhone XS's new A12 processor.
