The edge-to-edge screen is LCD Liquid Retina featuring the 828 x 1792‑pixel resolution with 326 ppi.
The iPhone XR supports 3G and 4G LTE. The smartphone features also the embedded SIM card or eSIM (requires carrier’s support). There are models with dual SIM for mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau. Other wireless connections include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC.
The iPhone XR comes in five vibrant colors: Black, Red, Yellow, Blue and Coral. The wireless charger is available for an extra cost.

- The water and dust protection is a grade lower than that of the iPhone XS and XS Max – only IP67 vs. IP68.
- The iPhone XR shipping date postponed for a month because Apple ran into a couple of problems with the LCD screen. Firstly, Apple has to tweak the software to work with the edge-to-edge LCD screen. Secondly, the supplier allegedly has troubles with cutting the notch in the panels.
