Apple’s newest low-price iPhone, the iPhone XR starts at $749 (the 64 GB model) and is now available for pre-order online (apple.com / Apple Store app) or just by going to an Apple store. It comes in six colors: black, white, red, yellow, blue, and coral. And, believe it or not, the yellow model is nearly sold out in the United States.
Right at half an hour after pre-orders went live, some colors began selling out and are now unavailable for launch day delivery in the US. For example, the yellow iPhone XR from T-Mobile will start being delivered in November instead of 26 October. In the UK, coral and yellow models have a delay of one-two weeks, as the supply started selling out.
The other colors are available for launch day delivery in the US, but some areas have stores with a very low supply.
If you were wondering why the yellow model is a popular choice, we have no idea – but it could be that Apple made less yellow iPhone XR models than the other colors, and has seen a faster sell out. Nonetheless, it is a sign that the others will follow.
Apple has not provided yet cases for the iPhone XR, which is a first, because new iPhones would be released with matching cases. According to the iPhone XR press release, some countries will get a clear case for the phone to show off the colors.
If you do not plan on pre-ordering an iPhone XR, you can get one on October 26 and buy it from the stores.

If you’ve read about the iPhone XS, then you should know a few things about the iPhone XR. It has an A12 Bionic processor and a primary camera. However, unlike the XS, the XR has a 6.1-inch LCD screen, it doesn’t come with a 3D Touch or a secondary camera, or with a stainless steel frame. The iPhone XR is lighter, a successor of the iPhone8, and given its price, it is a popular choice when it comes to choosing an iPhone.
