The advance orders have finally started for the most affordable phone in the new Apple line, with some colors already sold out.

The $ 749 iPhone XR (£ 749) was officially available to place orders online today, more than a month after its most expensive counterparts, the iPhone XS for $ 999 and the XS Max for $ 1099.

However, it will still be some time before you can get your hands on the device; the iPhone XR will not reach the shelves until October 26.

The advance orders have finally started for the most affordable phone in Apple's new line, the iPhone XR. The "budget" device of $ 749 has an LCD screen and comes in six colors

Apple hailed the iPhone XR as a way to "reach more customers" during the company's launch event in September.

While it may not break the bank, the "budget" device is not exactly cheap.

The 6.1-inch iPhone XR starts at $ 749 for 64 gigabytes. It can also be purchased with 128GB or 256GB of storage for additional charges.

The aluminum phone is available in white, blue, black, coral and yellow, along with a special version of the Red Product.

The XR has a 6.1-inch edge-to-edge LCD screen (instead of the more expensive OLED used in the other models) that Apple has called Liquid Retina.

"It's a bigger screen than the iPhone 8 Plus, in a smaller case," said Apple's vice president of marketing, Phil Schiller, during last month's event.

The new lower cost iPhone will also use FaceID, and the same A12 Bionic chip and its new brothers.

Use a single 12mp camera, but you can perform Portrait Mode thanks to specially designed software.

Apple also said that it will grant users 1.5 hours of battery life longer than the one obtained by 8 Plus.

Reports earlier this fall suggested that the delayed release of the most affordable device was due to production backups, with vendors struggling to boot LCD screens.

The iPhone XR is the only model that has an LCD Liquid Retina display; Apple's iPhone XS and XS Max use OLED displays.

The reports came several months ago that speculated that Apple would face problems with LCD supply, since its supplier Japan Display had low performance in the manufacture of the technology, according to Verge.

But it can be more complicated than that.

Reportedly, Apple suppliers have faced problems by increasing the supply of Liquid Retina LCD screen of the iPhone XR. According to experts, Apple has had to modify the display quality.

"Everything we've been hearing has been a problem on the software side," Ryan Reith, vice president of mobile device research at IDC, told The Verge.

& # 39; There's a lot of software involved with the LCD screen, since it's the first [LCD display] With a notch and full screen.

& # 39; Apple could not get enough of these screens. "He has got into last-minute problems with the contact manufacturer," he added.

The iPhone maker had to alter the LCD screen through software engineering to obtain the correct visual effects, Reith said.
