How to Turn Off the iPhone X, XS, and XR

In the camera department, the iPhone XR houses a single 12-megapixel rear camera sensor with f/1.8 aperture, Focus Pixels, a 6P lens, and a quad-LED True Tone flash. It not only comes in six different color options but also has the same design and features found on premium iPhone XS. This means two things - you don't get optical zoom, so if you want to zoom in close on something distant, it won't be quite as crisp.

Apple's iPhone XR, the most affordable new iPhone revealed this September, is coming to a store near you this Friday. If you were upgrading a year ago, you had to make a choice between shelling out more for a phone that represented the future or saving some money for a phone that was the end point of a decade of iPhone design.

But the biggest attraction of the XR may be its price: It starts at $749 compared to a base price of $999 for the iPhone XS line.

Instead of the OLED display on the iPhone XS, the screen is LCD, and you only get one camera on the back instead of the dual-cam setup on the XS. This year, the iPhone XR comes as the successor to last year's iPhone 8, which had an LCD display while the iPhone XS replaced iPhone X and iPhone XS Max replaced the iPhone 8 Plus. You won't be able to take a Portrait shot of your dog or brunch. And that's an extremely big deal, especially if spending $1500+ on a phone feels like too much for you. Of course, long-time Apple users might also be tempted to grab that one and upgrade from their aging iPhones for all the same reasons - admit it, you know a cheaper iPhone would sell a lot. It really makes a difference. And the slightly thicker bezels are, again, the type of thing you'd only notice if you were holding an XR and an XS side by side.

The long awaited "cheap" new iPhone, the iPhone XR, finally goes on sale today. Plus, the XR has the same A12 Bionic chip as the XS and XS Max have. Apart from this, the e-tailer Flipkart is giving an exchange offer of up to Rs 16,000 on iPhone XR with no cost EMI starting at Rs 2,555 per month.

Geared Up Co-host Andru Edwards says the XR packs just as much of a punch as this year's other iPhones, the XS and the XS Max, but without the luxury features of those models.

But I don't hold Apple stock, I just buy stuff from Apple, and have people ask me on a fairly regular basis which iPhone they should buy.
