Apple today announced the iPhone Xr in six colors: White, Black, Blue, Coral, Yellow, and (PRODUCT)Red. The smartphone includes an edge-to-edge LCD display and the same design as the iPhone Xs and Xs Max, but with an aluminum back instead of glass.
Comparatively, the iPhone Xr has a bigger display (6.1-inch) than the iPhone 8 Plus (5.5-inch), but includes a smaller overall body. The Xr has Face ID with the TrueDepth Camera system.
Otherwise, the iPhone Xr has many of the same gestures and features as iPhone X, with swiping up to unlock and no home button. iPhone Xr does lack 3D Touch, but instead includes a new feature called “Haptic Touch.”
