Apple's newest phone is expected to have a 6.1-inch screen.

  • Apple is expected to release three iPhones once again this year, meaning we're likely to see a follow-up to the iPhone XR.
  • The new iPhone XR will reportedly have a 6.1-inch LCD screen like the current version, but it's getting an upgrade to two cameras as opposed to one.
  • It may also come in different color options, including new lavender and green shades.

Those who balk at the idea of shelling out $1,000 for a new iPhone will probably be in luck again this year, as Apple is expected to release a lower-cost version of its flagship iPhone again in 2019. Reports indicate Apple will follow last year's pattern and release three new iPhones this fall:  two high-end models and a less expensive successor to the iPhone XR.

The iPhone XR is the more affordable version of Apple's flagship smartphone that starts at $750, compared to the $1,000 iPhone XS and $1,100 iPhone XS Max. Unlike the more expensive models, the iPhone XR has one camera instead of two and features an LCD screen rather than an OLED display. 

From new color options to an upgraded camera, here's everything we're expecting to see from Apple's follow-up to the iPhone XR.
