Try searching for the iPhone X on Apple's website, and you're redirected to a landing page showing off the 2018 range of the iPhone XS Max, the iPhone XS, and the iPhone XR.

We got to test the phone out in person, and reckon the display (which lands right in the middle, size-wise, of the iPhone Xs and Xs Max) might not reach the dizzying heights of OLED, but it remains a attractive smartphone display in its own right. Up until Wednesday, Apple still sold the Series 1, positioning it as a cheaper alternative to the Apple Watch Series 3, which was announced in 2017.

Yesterday Apple announced the iPhone XR, a lower-cost new iPhone that sits beneath the American maker's new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max flagships.

Those reasons? The fact that Apple has likely put less RAM in to the iPhone XR compared to the iPhone XS and XS Max, and the screen resolution is likely going to be less, too. Both factors that should conserve energy in comparison.

The iPhone XR will also be available in a variety of finishes - white, black, blue, coral, yellow, and (Product) Red - and 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB capacities, starting at $749.
