The ‘affordable’ smartphone in Apple’s this year’s flagship lineup, iPhone XR, is set to go on sale in India at 6PM today. So if you want to buy a new iPhone but found the pricing of iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max to be too high, then iPhone XR is the smartphone for you. It is going on sale in India in the first wave and it will also be launched in 50 other countries including the United States, the United Kingdom, Spain, Sweden, Singapore, New Zealand, France, Hong Kong, Greece, etc. iPhone XR has been up for pre-orders on a number of platforms since October 19.
