The best iPhone XR deals in October 2019

No longer the newest Apple device, iPhone XR deals are rapidly falling in price. And for those wanting Apple at its more high-end point, the iPhone XR could well be the way to go, combining great prices and top specs.

And that is excellent news for those wanting an impressive iPhone without pouring huge amounts of money into it. iPhone XR deals were already classed as Apple's 'affordable flagship' and now, that idea is even more true.

Up until the launch of the iPhone 11, this was the largest battery of any iPhone making it the go to option for those pushing their device to its limits. And, with an array of different colours and a powerful A12 bionic chip, the iPhone XR stands out as a great option for those not worried about getting Apple's latest.

Falling into the mid-range area of the phone market right now, the iPhone XR gives competition to Huawei and Samsung's P30 and S10e and for all of the fans of Apple, iPhone XR deals will be the obvious choice to go for.

So if you're ready to invest in iPhone XR deals, you can compare all of the best offers below using our custom made comparison chart or find out more about this phone and its offers down below.

And with Black Friday now just around the corner, iPhone XR deals are likely to come even further down in price in the upcoming period.

iPhone XR review in brief

Best value flagship iPhone you can buy

Screen size: 6.1-inch | Display: Liquid Retina 828 x 1792 | Rear camera: 12MP | Weight: 194g | OS: iOS 12 | RAM: 3GB | Storage: 64GB/128GB/256GB | External storage: No | Battery: 2942mAh

Delicious large display
Camera improvements
Lots of fun colours to choose from
Chunkier design than some

The home button is dead, long live the notch! It features on what immediately becomes the best value iPhone on the market, with the iPhone XR having all the appearance of more premium models but at a considerably lower cost.

There's no dual lens here, but the main camera does have a 12MP sensor and smart HDR. Excellent photos - in low light or otherwise - are more or less guaranteed. The innards are as finely tuned as ever and call is shallow but we're loving that clutch of new colours. A welcome change from muted Space Grey and Rose Gold.

If you've been an iPhone user for a while and have been waiting for an end to the customary incremental upgrades Apple usually launches, then 2018 may be the time to upgrade your iPhone.
