Measuring at 6.1-inches on the diagonal, it has a lower resolution than the iPhone XS, but SuperSaf TV says if you're coming from an iPhone 7 or iPhone 8 you won't notice a difference. Instead of just going with traditional news outlets, Apple also gave early iPhone XR units to popular YouTubers, probably in an effort to reach a younger audience.

Interested parties will be able to place their order for the new iPhone XR starting at 12:01 a.m. PST on October 19. The device is available in black, white, blue, coral, yellow, and (PRODUCT) RED colour options. It will be available in three sizes, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. The new Liquid Retina display is rumored to be the reason for such a long delay of the iPhone XR.

The iPhone XR will be available for purchase in Israel on November 1, while the following countries will get the phone a day later: Armenia, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, South Korea, Macau, Maldives, Myanmar, Ukraine and Vietnam.

Contract pricing will be revealed tomorrow but expect this device to set you back around £40 per month. Some reports from last month have suggested that Apple changed suppliers due to manufacturing issues with the iPhone XR.
