Those are the words of Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of product marketing. “Since the iPhone XR became available, it’s been the best-selling iPhone each and every day that it’s been on sale,” he told Reuters this week.
We awarded it 4.5/5 in our review, in which we hailed it as: “The best all-round iPhone you can buy in 2018”, thanks to its excellent camera, battery life and performance, and the fact it shares some of the XS’ features but is available for a lower price.
“The iPhone XR is a fantastic mixture of the best high-end features from the iPhone XS at a price more people will find affordable,” our review concluded. “It’s not cheap, but I think it proves great value when you consider how fast it is and how good the camera is.”
Citing “people familiar with the situation”, The Wall Street Journal recently published a report suggesting that Apple had slashed production orders for the XR not once but twice. Prior to that, Nikkei Asian Review reported that Apple had suspended plans to increase production of the handset.
