The Apple iPhone XR was launched in the year 2018, but Apple continues to sell it along with other iPhones like the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro along the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The smartphone that is completely button-free for all is equipped with a huge 6.1-inch Liquid Retina LCD display as well as a single 12-megapixel camera at the back, as well as an impressive battery.

But how do you do use it? With no buttons, those who have been using the iPhone 6to 7 or 8 might feel somewhat daunting.

Best iPhone XR Features

1. iPhone XR Design

Its iPhone XR is slightly bigger than the iPhone XS, with a 6.1-inch screen. It features an aluminum casing of the 7000 series (instead made of stainless steel). The back is constructed of glass, which means you can get wireless charging.

If you’ve viewed the product photos, you may notice that the bezels on iPhone XR are larger than iPhone XS. They’re just a little wider, but could be a problem for those who own. They’re not as ugly as some Android phones that sport big chins. Take a look at the picture below. On the left side you can see the iPhone XR, on the right side is the iPhone XS.

iPhone XR is slightly smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus while carrying an LCD that’s 0.6 inches larger. While it’s a lot bigger it’s compared to iPhone 8. iPhone 8. the iPhone XR weighs 194 grams. This is less than the iPhone 8 Plus’s 202 grams however, it’s a lot more than the iPhone 8’s weight of 148 grams. It’s also 1 millimeter larger than its predecessor, the iPhone 8.

2. New Liquid Retina LCD Display

One of the reasons Apple could reach the $749 mark is its new display. It’s an LED screen instead of an OLED panel. Apple claims it’s an advanced LED display in any smartphone. Apple tends to have top-quality LED screens in the market, and this iPhone is no exception.

It may not surprise you with regards to specifications but for usability, it’s good enough. Its screen’s resolution is 1792 pixels x 828 pixels. This is equivalent to 326 PPI. This qualifies for the Retina screen’s quality, but not even close to the incredible 458 PPI claimed on Apple’s iPhone XS.

The display supports True Tone, tap to wake up, and broad color. Apple promises the same seamless touchscreen experience with your iPhone XS. Making gestures will be fun due to the fact that Apple has added the technology of a touch-sensing rate of 120Hz on the LCD panel. This means that Apple will detect your finger’s touch and react to it at 120 Hz (twice the normal speed). There’s a little confusion over this. It’s not the 120hz refresh rate that we have seen on the iPad Pro’s Pro Motion display. This is only in relation to the ability to sense touch.

3. A12 Bionic Chip

The A12 chip in the iPhone XR is a beast. It’s the first chip that utilizes the 7nm technology. The chip’s system houses three elements: The CPU as well as a GPU along with an Apple-designed Neural Engine. The CPU with 6 cores is more efficient and Apple can now run all six Cores (2 high-performance and 4 high efficiencies) simultaneously. The high-performance CPUs are 15 percent more efficient than A11, and the cores with power efficiency are 50% more energy efficient.

The GPU is also 50percent faster than the A11 Bionic chip. In real life, this signifies that the new iPhone XR can launch apps 30 percent faster than the 2017 iPhone X, which cost $999 at the time it was released. This is a huge performance boost!

4. Haptic Touch

The only thing the iPhone XR doesn’t have is 3D Touch. It first appeared on the iPhone 6s. The user could press the screen to gain additional features. iPhone XR has something similar however it’s not exactly identical.

iPhone XR has a feature known as Haptic Touch, which is akin to 3D Touch functionality. Press and hold for a long time on specific buttons to activate functions similar to 3D Touch. You’ll receive haptic feedback as the action occurs. Apple declares that this is like the technology they’ve used in their latest MacBook trackpads.

5. Face ID and True Depth Camera System

The iPhone XR gets the same second-generation Face ID system as the iPhone XS. Utilizing advanced algorithms and a faster Secure Enclave means that your face will be scrutinized much quicker.


The first time it’s the first time that the entry-level iPhone has access to the True Depth camera system. This means you can now access Animoji as well as Memoji on each new iPhone! Additionally, you will have access to Portrait photos as well as Portrait Lighting, too.

6. Smart HDR

iPhone XR has a single 12MP f/1.8 wide-angle camera mounted on the back. The camera is twice as speedy as iPhone 8. In addition to the iPhone 8, there’s Optical Image Stabilization, which is built-in and the camera can shoot high-quality 4K videos up to 60fps. The specs are identical to that of the iPhone 8.

However, what’s most interesting is Apple’s innovative approach to photography. Apple utilizes Computational Photography to deliver photos that are far superior to the images a camera with a resolution of 12MP could capture.

Apple utilizes processor power from the A12 Bionic chips, as well as the built-in Neural Engine as well as an Image Signal Processor to perform some incredible things to images. The ISP alone can do 1 trillion operations on each photo you take. The thing that’s going to make the iPhone XR apart is the new Smart HDR feature.

When you hit the shutter button and press the shutter button, you will get 4 full-frame shots, and 4 medium-frame snaps between. In addition, it takes an extended exposure photo prior to the 8 photos. It then uses the A12 chip to combine the top elements of all of the images. The result is stunning even in poor lighting conditions. It handles exposure to sun and low-light conditions, too. Apple claims that there’s no shutter lag on the iPhone XR.

In terms of how video recording can be done on the smartphone, you’re still able to record 4K at 60 frames per second. What’s even more exciting is that you’re now able to record stereo audio also. When played through the new stereo speakers on the iPhone that have stereo speakers it gives you a full experience.

7. 6 New Colors

Best iPhone XR Features

This could convince a significant number people iPhone users to purchase an iPhone XR instead of the iPhone XS. This iPhone XR is offered in 6 colors.

White Black Blue, Coral yellow, as well as a unique Product Red edition. It’s the Product Red iPhone XR that might be the most attractive iPhone ever produced. But what’s the downside? The absence of Gold and Rose Gold option.

8. Portrait Mode on Single Camera

iPhone XR can capture portraits with the rear camera. Apple utilizes the latest Image Signal Processor to bring facial recognition and facial landmarking as well as depth mapping, and facial landmarking to the iPhone XR. The camera on the front can snap portraits with the True Depth camera system. Apple has enhanced its bokeh functions and technology for detecting depth. The company is now able to handle glasses and hair with much greater ease.

The most interesting thing is that you can zoom in later and alter the effect of bokeh. You can alter the level of blurring effect starting at f/1.4 all the way up to F/16 levels.

9. Activate Dual SIM

Apple has announced that it will bring Dual Sim support to the iPhone. However, it’s not as you believe. Apple has incorporated the eSIM technology on the iPad as well as Apple Watch to give you access to a second SIM without installing an additional SIM. The feature is only accessible in the country you live in where a particular carrier supports it. Apple is a major carrier such as Vodafone, T-Mobile, Airtel, and Jio in its network.

10. Longer Battery Life

iPhone XR is slightly larger than iPhone XS. It has a larger display than iPhone 8 Plus in a smaller size. It can last as long as 1.5 hours more than its predecessor, the iPhone 8 Plus in day-to-day use. It can be used for internet of up to 15 hours and video playback lasting 16 hours.
