iPhone XR FAQs

How big is the iPhone XR?

In terms of size, the Apple iPhone XR sits in the middle of the iPhone family. Its 6.1-inch LCD display pushes the boundaries of single-handed use, whilst still being pocketable. Measuring in at 150.9 x 75.7 x 8.3mm, the steel frame feels sturdy enough in your hand, without being bulky.


How good is the camera on the iPhone XR?

The iPhone XS comes with a 12MP wide-angle camera with optical image stabilisation – meaning it’ll help to capture clear snaps, even if you’re on the move.


The new Smart HDR feature now shoots four-shot bursts to make sure you don’t miss a moment and the XR also comes with an improved portrait mode with advanced bokeh and depth control. What this does is gives you more control over the blurry, out of focus part of a photo. It’s been designed to mimic a full DSLR camera, so you’ll be able to create those up-front in focus, blurry background shots that work wonders on Insta.

Is the iPhone XR waterproof?

The XR is water-resistant to IP67 standard, so it’s built to keep out dust, dirt or sand particles, and can handle a dip in water up to 1 metre for up to 30 minutes.

That said, we wouldn’t recommend you take it for a dip anytime soon.


How long does the iPhone XR battery last?

Apple announced that the iPhone XS will last up to 1hour 30minutes longer than the iPhone 8 Plus on a single charge. You can expect to get a day out of the XR before you need to plug it in.


Does the iPhone XR have wireless charging?

The iPhone XR does come with wireless charging, although you don’t get a wireless charger in the box so you’ll need to pick up a QI charger if you want to be wire-free. It’s also fast-charge capable which can get you back up to 50% battery in roughly 30 minutes, however you don’t get a fast-charger with the handset as standard.

Does the iPhone XR come with a headphone to lightening port adaptor?

No, if you want a 3.5mm jack to lightening port adaptor for your iPhone XR then you’ll need to pick one up separately. However it does come with EarPods with lightning connector as standard.
