The cheapest iPhone that was launched this year, iPhone XR, managed to remain under the spotlight with its low pricing - serving an opportunity to upgrade for those who were critical of iPhone XS-series pricing.

Many individuals and well-placed analysts in the tech community have been talking about Apple's 2019 iPhone lineup, but this is the first time that we know of that an analyst has stepped out into the public domain and put their beliefs and predictions on record.

Thanks to being on this scheme, certain Apple fans will be able to use the Apple Store app to pick out the iPhone XR of their choice so it's ready to pre-order super easily when that goes live.

The caution could exist because of the weak demand and sale record of the already released iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. With this model, the prices total up to RM3291, RM3491 and RM3951 for the 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models, respectively.

The iPhone XR will be available at the Apple authorised resellers from October 26 in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models in black, white, blue, yellow, coral and red colours, the company said in a statement on Thursday. The smartphone will go on sale in India starting October 26, across Apple's offline and online partners in the country.
