The iPhone XR is officially available for sale. Those who pre-ordered the device have began receiving their orders, while Apple Stores are also stocking the new phones.

With the iPhone XS and XS Max out as well, that means that Apple’s complete 2018 iPhone range is now available for you to purchase. Well, provided you can find the handset you want, that is!

The iPhone XR is arguably the most intriguing of Apple’s next-gen iPhones. It’s also its cheapest, with a starting price of $749, compared to its pricier (ever so slightly older) siblings.

That’s not a ding on quality, though, with early reviews suggesting that this is one of Apple’s best iPhones.

Similar guts at a lower price

The iPhone XR sports the same internal components as the iPhone XS series, but comes with just a single-lens camera on the back. It also features an LCD display instead of the OLED one found in the iPhone XS and XS Max models. You can find more about the differences between the iPhone XR and XS models in our handy guide here.

It also comes in a big range of colors, with a choice of black, white, red, blue, yellow and coral color options. As noted, the other big selling point of the XR is its price. The 64GB model costs $749, increasing to $799 for the 128GB model, and $899 for the top-end 256GB variant. For iPhone Upgrade Program customers, you can get it $37.41 per month.
