The iPhone Xr is the new budget iPhone

Apple just announced a new budget iPhone to along with the iPhone Xs. It brings many of the goodies found on the new and expensive iPhone Xr but for much less and it’s available in a variety of colors.

This phone replaces the iPhone 8 as the least expensive iPhone available. Like the iPhone Xs and the iPhone X before it, the Xr is a full-screen phone minus a notch at the top that houses the phone’s camera and FaceID sensors. Long live the Home Button. It’s no longer available on any iPhone model.

The screen is a 6.1-inch LCD screen, unlike the OLED version found in the iPhone XR, and Apple calls it a liquid retina screen with 1792 x 828 with 326 ppi. Even at a 6.1-inch screen, the phone itself is smaller than the previous iPhone 8 Plus. Inside is Apple’s new A12 Bionic chip that supports improved battery life, neural networks and advanced processing.

The body is made out of 7000 series aerospace grade aluminum that’s more durable glass and comes in white, black, blue, coral and yellow. The case also has IP 67 protection to keep it safe from dust and water.

Unlike the iPhone X and iPhone Xs, the iPhone Xr has a single lens camera. It’s a 12mp sensor with a fast 1.8 aperture lens and packs a true tone flash. Even though there’s only one lens, the iPhone Xr can still do portrait mode photos like the iPhone X and iPhone Xs. The iPhone Xr even has adjustable bokah found in the iPhone Xs.

Compaired to the iPhone 8 Plus, the iPhone XR has an hour and a half longer battery life.

New iPhones courageously ditch the free headphone dongle

Apple is under the impression that its “courage” has already paid off and that it no longer needs to ship a headphone dongle with its new phones. Mission accomplished! The new iPhone XS and XR models will not include the Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter, and users will have to buy it separately for $9. The iPhone 8 will also not include the dongle moving forward, The Verge reported. Courage. On the bright side, the dongle is only $9, and if you’ve been an iPhone owner for the past few years, you’ve got one already. To be clear, a lot of phones have been moving in the headphone jack-less direction and including the dongles with its past models was a nice precedent set by Apple. That said, the Pixel 2 included the dongle, so Apple is again leading the way here with an unpopular move.
