Apple will begin accepting pre-orders for the iPhone XR at 12:01 a.m. PDT this Friday, Oct. 19. The phone arrives in stores one week later on Friday, Oct. 26.

The 6.1-inch iPhone XR features many of the same internals as the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, which were also announced last month, including the all-new A12 Bionic chip with a Neutral engine. The handset is the first by Apple to feature a Liquid Retina display. The largest LCD ever on an iPhone offers industry-leading color accuracy, wide color gamut, True Tone, and Tap to wake technology.

Like the 2013 iPhone 5C, the iPhone XR comes in multiple colors. These include black, blue, coral, white, yellow, and PRODUCT(RED).

The iPhone XR will retail for $749 and feature many of the things that are included with the XS and XS Max. It will include Face ID, but sacrifices a bit on the screen. Instead of the OLED panel featured on the higher-end models, this version will use an LCD panel.
