Is iPhone XR still Worth in 2021

iPhone XR was first announced in WWDC in September 2018 and now it’s late 2021 which makes it three years old I don’t think it’s bad to have Every year new iPhone release with a public rollout of new iOS to bring extra features In this post, I will tell why this iPhone XR is still worth it in 2021

if you ask me to choose between iPhone 7 or XR

I would definitely go with XR, not 7

Things you need to know about iPhone XR

iPhone XR runs on A12 Bionic which came with iOS 12 which can be upgraded to iOS 14.7.1 even it’s eligible for iOS 15 in the future you can update with software updates as of now the best thing that I love about this iPhone is far better than 8,8 Plus, & X which make it different

Inside the Box

As your iPhone 12 comes with no charger adaptor inside and this will continue further and iPhone XR is a previous Model which is available with a charger adaptor inside so you don’t need to purchase it before but right now you need to buy Adaptor & Earpods separately


When it comes to its software which is running on iOS 12 when it came as of now its running iOS 14.7.1 which already includes lots of features and one thing you will notice which apple adds Dolby atmos feature which supports by its built-in speakers but on previous iPhone like iPhone 7, 8 you requires at least Beats or Airpods for a better experience

iOS 15 is also on its way as it is now in beta and soon it available to iPhone XR also and in future we can also get iOS 16 as well however there is no guarantee but Apple is known for providing software updates even for its older iPhone’s


The Display of the iPhone XR is quite good compared to old iPhone’s such as iPhone 7, or 8 due it has 6.1 inches of display with Liquid Retina IPS LCD resolution of 828×1792 Pixels which is best for watching videos but despite its resolution is lower


Most of the time iPhone’s battery you get is less but you can’t ignore the performance of it you get a good amount of battery backup depends upon the battery health of it

if you get it on second hand or refurbished market you may get battery health lower and it depends where are you getting from


If we look out to current iPhone’s which mainly based on two and three-camera setup on recent iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 Pro Max but XR have single-camera setup on the back however it still can capture great photos in portrait

Future of iPhone XR

Now everyone needs an iPhone with a bigger screen but iPhones like 6s, 7, 8 has small-sized displays due iPhone XR is still one of the best iPhones you can get in even in 2021 which is far better than the iPhone X as well due to its powered with A12 inside where’s likely more chances of getting future updates after iOS 15

Is iPhone XR worth in 2021

if you are a heavy or lite user on both condition it’s fit perfect I don’t find any performance issue no matter

you play games like PUBG or call of duty or want to use for normal calling & messaging purposes for me its Overall good to go

and, if you want an iPhone on budget with a bigger display then iPhone XR is still the best in 2021

if you satisfy with its Single-camera setup & LCD display which is below 1080p
