With a iPhone XR still roving high as a UK’s best-selling smartphone and outselling both a iPhone XS and XS Max in Europe, Apple would be ridiculous to reinstate a inheritor from this year’s lineup. Thankfully, early signs advise that a follow-up is on a cards, set to pierce a some-more affordable take on a 2019 flagship knowledge to a table.
Below you’ll find all we now have on a subsequent iPhone XR. Check behind mostly as we’ll continue to refurbish this underline as some-more is leaked/revealed.

iPhone XR 2 – At a glance
Arriving as partial of wider iPhone 11 (or iPhone XI if we prefer) leaks, an iPhone XR 2019 or iPhone XR 2 is also in a works. Right now pickings are slim with regards to a arrange of knowledge it’ll offer adult though there’s a judicious course with Apple’s hardware that should strew light on what a XR 2 will be able of.
Like a iPhone 11, a XR 2 is approaching to arrive during an Apple ‘Special Event’ someday in September 2019, with a recover approaching adult to a month after a title devices. It’ll come using iOS 13 – a subsequent vital recover of Apple’s mobile handling system, approaching to be denounced during a annual developer conference, WWDC 2019 in early June.
It’ll approaching run on Apple’s own A13 chipset and competition a new dual camera setup. With 5G approaching to pass a iPhone 11 by, a inclusion on a XR 2 is even reduction likely. The phone is approaching to reason on to Apple’s Lightning connector, however, a fast-charger USB-C adapter is approaching to come in-box, if Apple grants it a same diagnosis as a iPhone 11.
iPhone XR 2 recover date – When is a subsequent iPhone out?
After a change from summer to autumn launch events, behind with a introduction of a iPhone 4S in 2011, Apple has remained sincerely unchanging with a iPhone unveilings ever since. As such, we’re awaiting a Sep 2019 launch for a iPhone 11 and iPhone XR 2, generally if a past 3 years are anything to go by. Here’s when prior iPhone models were launched:
- iPhone − Jan 2007
- iPhone 3G − Jun 2008
- iPhone 3GS − Jun 2009
- iPhone 4 − Jun 2010
- iPhone 4S − Oct 2011
- iPhone 5 − Sep 2012
- iPhone 5S − Sep 2013
- iPhone 6 − Sep 2014
- iPhone 6S − Sep 2015
- iPhone SE − Mar 2016
- iPhone 7 − Sep 2016
- iPhone X/iPhone 8 − Sep 2017
- iPhone XS − Sep 2018
The one premonition to all of this is that, if Apple creates a same pierce as it did with a iPhone XR, a phone will indeed make a coming on store shelves adult to a month after a iPhone 11 and 11 Max are accessible to buy.
Apple approaching staggered a roll-out final year in an bid to pull early-adopters to flare out for a some-more costly iPhone XS series, withdrawal a pull of a strange iPhone XR’s affordability for some-more mainstream buyers, reduction meddlesome in being a initial to possess a next-generation iPhone.
iPhone XR 2 cost – How many will it cost?
One of a many appealing aspects of 2018’s iPhone XR was a price. Despite not accurately flitting for inexpensive when placed alongside Android competitors, in iPhone town, it started during a whopping £250 reduction than a many affordable SKU of a some-more absolute iPhone XS.
We’re anticipating that this trend continues with a successor, undercutting a iPhone 11 by a important domain while still charity a allied peculiarity experience.
Right now, a iPhone XR starts during £749/$749 for a 64GB model, £799/$799 for a 128GB chronicle and £899/$899 for a largest-capacity 256GB model.
In an ideal universe a XR 2 will cost a same or reduction (as if) as a 2018 chronicle though even if it does still tumble underneath a iPhone 11 array in terms of price, there’s each possibility that a seeking figure will instead climb up; shabby in a UK, during least, by a effects of Brexit and elsewhere by ubiquitous marketplace trends.
iPhone XR 2 – Performance
Expectations now place a iPhone XR 2 in a same vessel as a predecessor, with a creators creation a same compromises to concede for allied energy to this year’s iPhone 11 during a reduce price.
Apple’s possess A-series chipsets have been a tack of iPhones and iPads for generations, and we’re awaiting a subsequent A13 SoC (as it’s suspected to be called) to make a entrance in both a iPhone 11 array and a iPhone XR 2.
The association hasn’t selected to (or unequivocally indispensable to) supplement heaps of RAM to a devices, as you’ll find in a Android camp. As such, it’s doubtful a iPhone XR 2 will container in any some-more memory than a 2018 XR, during 3GB.
There haven’t been any important reports or complaints from existent iPhone XR owners surrounding lifeless performance, so Apple substantially won’t disaster with a recipe too many if it doesn’t have to.
iPhone XR 2 – Design Display
The iPhone XR is a well-built potion and steel smartphone with a 6.1-inch ‘Liquid Retina’ IPS arrangement that ditches Apple’s pressure-sensitive 3D Touch record in-place of easier haptic feedback.
In this regard, a XR 2 isn’t approaching to be any different, with a same notched tip corner easy a company’s TrueDepth camera complement for Face ID and animoji/memoji support, as good as an 828 by 1792 resolution.

As for a design, renders (created in partial by @OnLeaks) formed on images of ostensible leaked phone box moulds, published by Bloomberg author – Mark Gurman, showcase informed bodies, despite with a integrate of pivotal differences.
The iPhone XR 2 (along with a 11 and 11 Max) all demeanour to competition identical dull forms to their predecessors, with a many important disproportion being a new, vast block camera arrangement.
In a box of a 11 and 11 Max, it’s seen sporting 3 watchful camera sensors, however, on a XR 2, it usually packs two, vagrant a doubt – because hasn’t Apple usually used a same dual-camera pattern found on a stream iPhone XS array (assuming these designs reason any H2O come launch time).
As for a other important difference, it’s a tiny reduction apparent during initial peek though something that each iPhone user will immediately notice when they have a XR 2 in-hand. Apple competence be swapping out a earthy plane ring/silent switch for a verticle one, identical to those found on a iPad line. Why? We’re not sure, though it’s a tiny change that has a intensity to scatter some feathers.
The iPhone XR brought a long-absent injection of colour behind into a iPhone portfolio and a XR 2 is approaching to continue this trend with twin new hues – lavender and green, bringing a sum to six, again – as these twin new colourways will reinstate a XR’s existent blue and coral options, according to Macotakara.
iPhone XR 2 – Camera
As for what a twin camera setup on a behind competence be comprised of, there’s zero even tighten to central out there right now.
The XR used a same categorical sensor as a XS and XS Max, so it stands to reason that a primary and delegate sensors of a XR 2 competence counterpart that of twin of a 3 cameras found on a behind of a iPhone 11 array – many approaching a primary sensor with a delegate telephoto offering.
If a 11 array creates use of OIS (optical picture stabilisation) opposite mixed camera sensors, there’s a possibility that a XR 2 competence usually occupy a record on a primary back limp – likewise to a iPhone X and 8 Plus respectively.
Unless Apple chooses to refurbish a TrueDepth front camera setup, a XR 2 will substantially leave a stream 7-megapixel good alone.
