Apple's cheapest iPhone - the colourful iPhone XR - will cost R15,999 for the 64GB version in South Africa, and will be available in stores on October 26, iStore South Africa revealed on Wednesday. It will be available in three sizes, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.

Unlike the iPhone XS and XS Max, the iPhone XR will also come in a variety of new bold colors like white, black, blue, coral, yellow and (PRODUCT) RED.

DigiTimes has a mixed track record in terms of quoting inside information and industry gossip; according to it, quite a number of Taiwan-based suppliers that are engaged with Apply are still unsure about the orders for the new iPhone series for the rest of the year.


The iPhone XR pre-bookings listing is now live on IndiaiStore, the official offline partner for Apple in India. Airtel's online store also offers certain bundled offers to help iPhone XR customers avail premium postpaid plans at lower tariffs. It is available in five colors with a price tag of $749 in the United States, £749 in the UK, and over €849 in Continental Europe.

The iPhone XR is priced starting at Rs. 76,900 and for that price you get what is basically an iPhone 8 with an iPhone X-like front (complete with the notch and Face ID).

Apple enthusiasts in India are in for some treat this festive season with the company launching its latest iPhone XR.


The iPhone XR falls well below the iPhone XS and XS Max because it brings an LCD display rather than OLED. It was reportedly delayed due to manufacturing issues, so we'll see if Apple has enough units in stock to meet the demand.

"Other bullet-points hit during the 35-second video are the durable class cover, fast A12 Bionic processor and water-resistance". On the camera front, the iPhone XR comes with a single 12-megapixel wide-angle sensor offering f/1.8 aperture and digital zoom up to 5x.
