Apple hailed the iPhone XR as a way to "reach even more customers" during the firm's September launch event. Naturally, retailers like Walmart also want a piece of the action, with Walmart now out with a deal that could save you $100 on a new iPhone XR whether you preorder or wait to buy the phone in-store when availability begins a week from today.

The iPhone XR will be available in South Africa on October 26.

The iPhone XR with 12MP rear camera and 7MP front sensor claims to have better low light performance.

"Spectrum" doesn't really tell us that, serving instead to showcase the many bright and attractive color options the iPhone XR is available in. Also missing is the more durable steel frame as the iPhone XS and XS Max, with the stronger material being replaced with more scratch and bending prone aluminum. Colour options include Coral, White, Yellow, Black, Blue and the Product Red.

What just happened? Apple recently invited select tech editors and influencers to New York City for a hands-on preview of the new iPhone XR, Apple's latest budget-minded smartphone. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have been available for a few weeks now with some pretty expensive price tags in the country. Powered by the company's own A12 Bionic processor, it runs on iOS 12. The new iPhone XR features an all-screen glass design and comes with an LCD Retina display. The 128GB variant will be sold for Rs 81,900, whereas the 256GB variant will retail for Rs 91,900.

IndiaiStore lists offers for iPhone XR pre-orders, including no-cost EMI plans with Bajaj Finserv; 5 percent cashback on EMI payments with Citibank credit cards or Axis Bank credit and debit cards, as well as 5x reward points on non-EMI payments with Citibank and Axis Bank credit cards. It has an aperture of f/1.8 and comes loaded with optical image stabilization, a 6-element lens, focus pixel with a quad LED truetone flash, among other features.
