Is iPhone XR still Good in 2023

iPhone XR was first announced in WWDC in September 2018 and now it’s 2023 which makes it FIVE 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 2023

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 however you will find that only a few sites offering with adaptor and earpods


When it comes to its software which is running on iOS 12 when it came as of now its running iOS 15 which already includes lots of features and one thing you will notice which apple added 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

iPhone XR can also get iOS 17 as well however there is no guarantee Apple is known for providing software updates even for its older iPhone which prime reason why it’s still best to go


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 being lower which i don’t prefer unless you satisfied with XR


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 depending upon the battery health of it as it is more than four years old which means if go for a refurbished or buying a Second hand may lead lower battery capacity unless its new

if you find a situation where your battery health is below 80% then strongly go for a replacement to get better battery life


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

but, really single-camera worth for nowadays I don’t think so iPhone 11, 12 even 13 and its mini version offers two camera setup which is far better for getting portrait and night sight

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 power with A12 inside where’s likely more chances of getting future updates after iOS 16

Is iPhone XR worth in 2023

if you are a heavy or lite user on both conditions it’s fit perfect I don’t find any performance issues no matter whether you play games like PUBG or call of duty or want to use it for regular calling & messaging purposes for me it Overall good to go

and, if you want an iPhone on budget with a bigger display then iPhone XR is still the best in 2023 if you satisfy with its Single-camera setup & LCD display which is below 1080p and Non-5G iPhone
