Apple's cheaper iPhone XR rocks bright colours
The story that got us to this point is actually rather long, and it involves Apple slowing down phones with old, worn out batteries to prevent random crashing. iPhone users naturally didn't take kindly to that remote throttling, so Apple made a decision to extend an olive branch to them and cut the price of battery replacement for the entirety of 2018.
The bigger question is whether you consider the iPhone XR's $750 a reasonable price for a new iPhone that isn't its top flagship.
The cheapest iPhone is now the iPhone 7, which starts at $US449. Dubbed the iPhone XR, the new model sits in between the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in size, and features a 6.1-inch advanced LCD screen that the company is calling its "Liquid Retina" display. You can't zoom in as much, though, and you have fewer portrait lighting effects. It was smaller and more lightweight than other iPhones, too, still sporting the well-regarded iPhone 5 design.
3D Touch: There's no more 3D Touch, which means you won't press in to launch apps or see widgets.

Later sale date: While the iPhone XS devices go on sale September 21 (preorders start September 14), you won't be able to buy the iPhone XR until October 26 (preorders start October 19).
We just took a peek at the official accessory page, and all iPhone X cases by Apple are gone, as the phone has been discontinued, while the ones listed for the XS aren't cited as compatible with the X for the same reason. Apple gave us cryptic guidance like "it lasts 90 minutes longer than the iPhone 8 Plus".
In the hand Gareth notes that it feels as an iPhone should, with curved edges, two speaker grilles at the bottom, and a glass back, but that it feels noticeably chunkier than the more expensive XS and XS Max handsets.
The XR is also the first iPhone in years to be sold in a variety of colors, including red, coral, yellow and blue. Gareth recons that the lower price will make the iPhone XR the best selling new iPhone revealed this year. But beware that if you're planning to buy an iPhone 8, it won't come with a dongle, either.
