The A12 Bionic chip uses real-time machine learning to transform the way you experience photos, gaming, augmented reality (AR), and more. A 12MP camera system with Portrait mode, Portrait Lighting, enhanced bokeh, and Depth Control for studio-quality portraits. And a water-resistant design.
Check out everything you need to know about the iPhone XR. With new deals emerging for this iPhone, there is plenty of reason to take a closer look at the iPhone XR.
The Apple iPhone XR boasts an impressive set of features, including a wide-angle camera with studio-quality effects and a chipset that uses significantly less power, so you can continue to use the phone well into the night.
The iPhone XR has a 12MP wide-lens camera that has larger pixels for capturing more low-light detail. This is handy because many of life’s moments occur in the evening. When you snap a photo of a friend or close family member, you can apply studio effects with Portrait Lighting. In Portrait Mode, you can use Depth Control to adjust an advanced bokeh and background blur.
With the iPhone XR camera, you will notice impressive highlights, detail, and shadow, which are part of the Smart HDR feature. To relive moments as though you were there again, you can switch the camera into 4K video recording mode, or record slo-mo video at 240fps, while still being able to snap 8MP stills at the same time.
Further camera features on the Apple iPhone XR include playback zoom, stereo sound recording, Animoji, and Memoji. The secondary 7MP camera has six Portrait Lighting effects, and the wide-angle lens is perfect for bringing your friends into your selfies.
The iPhone XR from Apple has an ample 6.1” Liquid Retina HD screen that stretches out into the corners, giving an all-display look. Challenging outdoor viewing is not an obstacle for the iPhone XR because of its impressively bright display. If the devils-in-the-detail, then this iPhone strikes a home run with high definition equating to 1,792x 828 pixels.
The battery in the Apple iPhone XR gives long usage times of up to 15 hours of internet browsing or up to 16 hours of video playback. If you listen to track after track of music, then 65 hours of music playback will easily get you from one charging session to the next.
Much of this extended battery life is down to the new chipset that uses 50% less power. Although not included in the box, the XR is wireless and fast charge capable.
Face ID is one of the Apple iPhone XR’s best features, and this is ultra-secure, checking 30,000 focal points on your face. Siri, the digital assistant, makes an appearance and gives an intuitive edge to the user experience.
The iPhone XR is splash, water, and dust resistant, so the occasional rain shower or an accidental spill, are protected against.
You can get a great deal on the iPhone XR, costing significantly less than the iPhone 11 series. In addition to this, you can update the operating system to iOS 13, which is the OS used by the iPhone 11 series. iOS 13 gives you better security, more transitions and animations, and updates to many of the most popular apps.
The Apple iPhone XS has a smaller display and a battery that doesn’t perform quite as well.
The 2020 price for the iPhone XR is £629 when purchased SIM-free. You can also buy the iPhone XR on finance, with a small upfront cost and monthly instalments to cover the rest.
We show all iPhone XR deals for monthly-contract customers on EE, Three, O2 and Vodafone, to ensure you find the deal that is right for you.
