Apple releases colorful new iPhones

Kaya Newell, Reporter

In September of 2018, Apple released a new iPhone known as the XR.

I have owned an iPhone since I was nine and now six years later still I stick with the brand Apple. My first phone was a white iPhone 4s.

When I was 12 I got a grey iPhone 6s. I had the iPhone 6s for two years, but there were some downfalls to it. The only options that were available for storage were 16Gb, 64Gb and 128Gb.  I tend to use a lot of storage with apps and pictures. Having a lower storage capacity tends to slow down the device.  Another thing that I was not so happy about was the battery life. Near the end of my use of the iPhone 6s, a fully charged battery would last around two and a half hours.

The XR has a battery life of 14-15 hours on a single charge. This ends the charging issues of the previous version. When I got the iPhone XR I was so excited, because of all the special features. The phone comes in six different colors which include coral, red, blue, white, black and yellow. I got the blue and love how beautiful and shiny the glass back is.  The phone doesn’t have a home button which is more convenient when closing apps and going from app to app. The phone also has face recognition which allows you to unlock your phone and use apps that have save passwords.

The iPhone XR is a wonderful addition to the Apple products.  I would definitely recommend this phone to anyone who is looking for a good quality camera and advanced technology.  The Apple community is always looking for new customers.
