iPhone XR vs iPhone 7

Which one is best for you?

Innovations introduced with Apple’s 2016 flagship iPhone 7 model included water resistance, dual speakers and quad-core processor. Otherwise, changes made from the previous year’s iPhone 6 were incremental. Apple have stepped features up again with their more recent releases, as demonstrated by the beautiful and powerful iPhone XR.

iPhone XR is a significant upgrade from iPhone 7 in every category. Apple has loaded this new model with a suite of clever tools – the 12-megapixel rear camera takes superb low light shots thanks to Smart HDR bracketing technology, and the advanced 3D FaceID offered by the TrueDepth front camera makes the phone very secure.

With advances in battery life, video capture, wireless charging and Augmented Reality, iPhone XR is an excellent choice if you are looking to upgrade your iPhone experience. Compare the specs on both phones with our quick feature guide.
