The Independent - Tech

Apple's brand new, cheaper version of the iPhone XR is finally available. The handset has gone on sale weeks after it was launched alongside the more expensive iPhone XS. The XR offers many of the same features but at a reduced price. It includes the same processor and many other technologies, but packs them into a cheaper body that allows Apple to sell the phone at a more affordable price. It also comes in a range of – sometimes very bright – colour finishes.

Apple's iPhone Xr – the cheaper version of its new handsets – is now on sale. It can be pre-ordered from Apple or a huge range of carriers from today, ahead of its release date on 26 October. The phone was revealed alongside the more premium iPhone Xs at an Apple event last month, when it announced that the new phone would not launch for weeks.

iPhone XR: Apple finally explains latest handset's strange name

The Independent - Tech

Apple has finally explained its strange iPhone naming system this year. That complicated set of designations – the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR – means basically nothing, according to Apple's marketing chief. When the new phones came out, the XS felt fairly natural. Apple had never used the letter before, and it wasn't clear why they'd chosen the name – whether it was simply the letter before S, or referred to something else entirely. Now Phil Schiller, Apple's marketing boss, has said that the name doesn't mean very much at all.
