iPhone XR Gets FCC Approval Ahead of October 19 Pre-Orders

With pre-orders slated to start October 19, the new iPhone XR has received approval from the FCC today.  That is the last regulatory step required for the 6.1″ iPhone to be sold.  You can read the full FCC approval here but, to be honest, it isn’t that exciting of a read.

Powered by the Apple A12 Bionic SoC, the same SoC in the new iPhone Xs and Xs Max, the iPhone XR will come with 64GB, 128GB, or 256GB of Storage.  It will also be available in a broader range of colors:  Black, White, Red, Yellow, Coral, and Blue.  It will start at $749 for the 64GB unit and go up to $899 for the 256GB variant.

The 6.1″ Liquid Retina display renders at 1792×828 to give you 326ppi.  There is no Home button as all of this year’s iPhones now have swipe gesture for navigation.  The XR is IP67 rate for dust and water intrusion.

As mentioned, pre-orders for the phone will start on October 19.  It is expect that those pre-orders will ship the following week with the phones being available in stores on Friday, October 26.  Those dates are not confirmed by Apple.

To check out details on the phone, you can find it in the Apple Store.
