Lately, Apple has made shopping for an iPhone complicated. So let me simplify: If you're in the market for an upgrade, buy the iPhone XR. I don't blame anyone who's been holding on to an old iPhone 6, 6S or 7. The data shows people are waiting longer and longer to upgrade, with good reason: Phones haven't been getting that much better, yet prices have pushed to $1,000, or even $1,450 for the top iPhone. related advertisement With the $750 iPhone XR, you have the opportunity to leap ahead to better technology -- like a superior camera and more screen -- without getting a nosebleed from the price tag.

There are some other subtle differences as well: the XR has a single rear camera, while the XS has a second telephoto lens. The XR is offered in just one somewhat large size, while the XS comes in smaller and larger variants. And the XR is made of … [Read more...] about Apple iPhone XR review: better than good enough
