Apple expects the cheaper iPhone XR will be twice as popular as the XS and XS Max. It reportedly plans to ramp up production of its cheapest new handset to over 50% of its output of total new handsets over the next few months.
The Cupertino company reportedly plans to pump out 20 million units of the iPhone XR next month, a lot more than the 4-5 million iPhone XS Maxs it intends to produce.
The 20 million figure will account for more than half of its total production of its new range of iPhones. That would mean it aims to make around 4-5 million iPhone XSs a month.
At £749, the XR isn’t exactly cheap. But it’s the most affordable of Apple’s new handsets. The compromises include an LCD screen that isn’t as sharp or vibrant as the other models’ OLED panels, and less RAM than its more expensive stablemates.
It features a very similar all-screen design as the XS and XS Max, and same Face ID facial unlocking tech.
Wireless charging also comes as standard. But the phone comes in a different range of colours than the XS and XS Max.
