Following the launch of iPhone XR pre-orders at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time on October 19, Apple uploaded two new iPhone XR videos to its YouTube channel.

The two short videos are designed to show off the iPhone XR's design and feature set, with the "Spectrum" video focusing on the different colors available and a second introductory video highlighting the Liquid Retina LCD display, the single lens camera with Depth Control, and Face ID.


These are the first iPhone XR videos that Apple has shared so far following the device's September introduction. Pre-orders for the iPhone XR are now live, with pricing starting at $749. For full details on the new features in the iPhone XR, make sure to check out our roundup.

iPhone XR with the “R” standing for “Rectale” where liquid poop comes from :p

Charging €859 ($985) in EU for a 720P 64GB phone should be illegal. This is pure insult to iOS customers. I have no words for it....

The video's are awesome. The colors on these phones are great and will be in the wild advertising as it is.

This should sell well for those who can’t stretch to the ‘higher end’ models.
True for that but also folks (like myself) who could buy the Xs series but don't think the extra 2x zoom camera, shorter battery life and higher resolution displays (over the retina resolution of the Xr) are worth $250 - $350 more. I would use the zoom some, but its just not worth $350 more to me (since I'd want a Max).

I would not think the pre-order frenzy will be as big for the Xr, guessing most of that will have been taken by the Xs release a month (?) ago.

I'll wait for the iPhone X SE2
I hope they create one, the SE was a great phone. The fact that they dropped the SE without a replacement (instead of just keeping it around) makes me pessimistic about the chances on this though.
