Sam’s Club iPhone XR preorder deal gets you a $100 gift card

If you've been itching to get the new iPhone but didn't like the prices of either the new iPhone XS or two-thousand dollar iPhone XS Max, Apple has another option coming, and coming quickly.

The iPhone XR is already available for pre-order through the Apple stores and its online Indian stores. Once you get your oder in, devices are slated to ship (and appear in retail stores) beginning next Friday on October 26.

Recently, analyst with KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo has stated that the iPhone XR will be the top selling iPhone model of the year. Available starting at $749 for the 64GB version (128GB and 256GB are also available), the XR features a similar design to the XS and XS Max, drops the fingerprint sensor for Apple's Facial Recognition and runs the same processor.

Apple also posted another How to video this morning, this time it's a How to edit a Portrait selfie on iPhone. The iPhone XR is the new budget iPhone, customers can possess.

The iPhone XR is out for pre-order now - if you want the best deal, then our friends at TechRadarhave all the information you need. The smartphone comes with 6.1-inch LCD IPS display with 326ppi, 1400:1 contrast ratio (typical), True Tone display, Wide colour display (P3), 625 cd/m² max brightness (typical), and fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating.

Not having this on the phone means you do miss the all-important 2x optical zoom functionality and this camera was a big part of Apple's new portrait mode.

The new Apple iPhone XR is on display at the Steve Jobs Theater after an event to announce new products Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018, in Cupertino, Calif.

The iPhone XR is quite a bit different from the iPhone XS - offering a look that is a whole lot more colorful but a screen that's LCD rather than OLED.

Optus' cheapest iPhone XR (64GB) plan is $77 per month ($45 plan + $32 phone payment) on a 4GB My Plan Plus 24 month postpaid plan.
