iPhone X[R] or iPhone XR (read: Ten “R”) has been introduced together with iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max back on 12th September 2018. However, unlike iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max which has been publicly available on Apple store and any other stores selling iPhone, iPhone XR is yet to be released and sold to public.

So for those who don’t know, don’t get disappointed when you visit Apple store or electronic stores selling iPhone only to find that there’s no iPhone XR.
That’s because Apple hasn’t officially released iPhone X[R] to the public. Not sure what’t the real reason behind – some articles telling that it was due to engineering difficulties, some articles telling that it’s part of marketing, sell the much more expensive version of iPhone first.

According to Apple, you can only find and buy iPhone XR on the following dates:
Pre-Order: 19th October 2018*.
Available in store: 26th October 2018*.
