How to Listen to Audiobooks, Podcasts on Apple Watch (Without an iPhone)

Apple's new iPhone XR has most of the features found in the top-of-the-line iPhone XS Max, but not its $1,100 price tag.

Apple's iPhone XS features a higher-end sturdier stainless steel frame instead of the lower-cost aluminum frame in the XR, but the XR doesn't feel cheap.

The only older iPhones that have wireless charging are the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.

The iPhone XS died after 9:41 hours in the same test, while the Max version went for nearly an hour longer at 10:38 hours.


To the untrained eye, or someone not holding the iPhone XR and XS side by side, it might even be hard to instantly tell the two apart - but there are a number of key differences that we need to dig into. Although the market is now chasing more capable flagship designs with prices topping $1 000, the iPhone Xr will serve the consumer masses at this presumably stable price point. It has some weight to it due to the fact that the LCD display requires a backlight. Need I say more?

The effect is much like the LCD screens Apple has made before, to be honest, as they've always been colorful and sharp, but with the new "Liquid Retina" display things are supposed to closer to the high-end OLED screen.

At the back of the XR, there's a single-lens camera which is available in lieu of the dual-lens camera system in the iPhone XR.

Welcome to the third day of our iPhone XR review.


This isn't about the quality of picking out the subject and applying blur to the background - this was excellent in all our test shots, with crisp lines of focus, and convincing blur across the appropriate parts of person's body as well as the background.

The iPhone XR has done a great job making the sky look vibrant on this sunny morning, but the person is a little dark - though there's still good dynamic range in the shadows. Paytm Mall also has an exchange offer on the iPhone XR with up to Rs 7,000 off. This probably won't be a life-changing feature for most people - after all, it requires an extra accessory, which can cost about $US40 - but it's certainly nice to have. The 128GB option is seen as crucial as this is widely seen as the most ideal storage capacity, something the XS and XS Max do not have.

iPhone XR comes with IP67 rating for water and dust resistance. iPhone XR offers connectivity options like 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and Wi-Fi. Last week, the American tech giant initiated the pre-bookings for the iPhone XR.

The Apple iPhone XR is the least expensive iPhone released this fall, but it is not the smallest. The other notable compromise comes in the camera department - the XR sports only a single rear camera as compared to the dual cameras on the XS and XS Max.


Apple has given the iPhone XR a 12-megapixel f/1.8 aperture wide-angle lens with an all-new sensor.
