We haven't listed every time zone for every country, such as in Canada, Russia, and the United States, nor have we listed every available pre-order country, so make sure to double check your specific time zone so you're certain you know the exact time that pre-orders will kick off. A time zone converting website is a useful tool for confirming accurate pre-order times.

It's not yet clear if supplies of the iPhone XR will be constrained, but there have been rumors of production issues that led to a launch delay, so it's best to pre-order the iPhone XR as soon as possible if you're aiming to get a new device on release day.

The first iPhone XR pre-orders will arrive to customers on Friday, October 26, the XR's official launch date.

Unfortunately, this will always be known as the poor man's iPhone no matter how good it really is.
That says a lot about the person who judges others that way. I don't see anything wrong with XR, and it's far from being a "poor man's" anything at $800 price point!

Apple marketing at it's finest, making people think $800 is cheap for poor men. ;)

Yep. Inferior in every way.
The LCD screen is actually better if your planning to keep it a few years because the OLED screens usually show some burn in after a year or two.
