APPLE'S new iPhone XR offers a fast processor, improved camera and all-screen design on a smaller budget and now there's a way to save £280 off this new device.
The iPhone XR was announced last month at Apple's keynote in Cupertino and this new device finally arrives in stores this Friday.
There's plenty of reasons to look forward to this release with the XR landing in your pocket with a super fast A12 Bionic processor and all-screen design which covers the front of the device.
The new XR also comes in six colour including red, blue and yellow plus it features wireless charging, Face ID and a water-resistant design.
And you get all of this at a much cheaper price than the iPhone Xs with prices starting from £749 SIM-free
“iPhone XR helps us reach even more people with the latest iPhone innovations," said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
"It is packed with the newest technologies including a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display that goes edge to edge, the latest TrueDepth camera with faster Face ID authentication, new 7-nanometer A12 Bionic chip with second generation Neural Engine and a 12-megapixel camera that takes advanced Portrait mode and Portrait Lighting photos.
“The new iPhone XR has a gorgeous new aerospace-grade aluminium and glass enclosure that has IP67 protection from liquids and dust, long all-day battery life and comes in six beautiful finishes.
"iPhone XR makes it possible for even more people to have the great experience of the latest iPhone X technology, in beautiful new designs, at a more affordable price.”
The iPhone XR will be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models with all the major retailers and mobile operators stocking this phone.
However, there's a new deal from Carphone Warehouse which may make owing the XR even more affordable.
The high street store is offering some very good trade-in deals with those owning an older device, such as the iPhone 7, able to get up to £300 off the new phone when they hand over their old device.
For example, a 256GB iPhone 7 can be traded in for £280 and the Plus model is worth £300 when buying the XR.
These are very competitive prices with some rival trade-in sites offering much less for these older phones than the latest Carphone Warehouse deals.
For example, Music Magpie will only offer £226 for the 256GB iPhone 7 some £50 less and Apple's trade-in scheme values this same device at £200.
