IPhone XR

On November 3, 2018, the IPhone XR will be released. The IPhone XR has a 6.1 inch display and it says to have the most durable glass on the front of the phone. It is also water and dust resistant. There is a face scan like the previous phone, the IPhone X, but it works faster and better. Apple states that “It’s the most secure facial authentication ever in a smartphone.”  On the IPhone XR, there is an inferred camera. There is also a flood illuminator which helps identify your face, even in the dark. In the iphone, there is a A12 Bionic, which is known as the most powerful chip ever made in a smartphone. It is up to 15% faster than the A11. It saves 50% more battery than the A11 as well. Also, the graphics are 50% faster than previous phones with the A11. The A12 has 5 trillion operations per second.
