Apple iPhone XR: Why That Name?

By  | 

If we were to follow how Apple usually name their iPhones, the XS wasn’t really that much of a surprise because we tend to see that after Apple upgrades their device but where does the XR come from?

Well, according to Apple’s senior vice president Phil Schiller, the reasoning is pretty straightforward. He explains that with sports cars, R and S are commonly used to show that it is really special and fast. He added that he loves cars and that is where the R came from.

It does make sense with the R and S representing fast and special vehicles since the Apple iPhone XS and XR are the fastest phones thanks to the A12 Bionic ship that Apple is offering right now.

One other question that he did address was the display of the iPhone XR. Apple decided to release the XR with a sub-1080p display. He explains that if you can’t really see the pixels, the numbers do not mean anything. While we do admit that the XR display looks great, we also can’t get over the fact that the XR is more expensive than Android models with a 1080p display.
