IPhone XR

The iPhone XR was released in 2018 where the base price was $999 when released. Now, you can find them for around $699, which is a great price for everything this phone offers. There is an increasingly better battery life compared to previous phones and the phone is water resistant. 

“One time I dropped my phone in the snow before, and I thought it was going to be damaged. But it was completely fine,” said Cayla Flowers, 12.

The water resistant ability in the XR is due to the fact that there is no more headphone jack on the phone. Now, the headphones and charging cord share the same port.

“The no headphone jack has not been a problem for me personally because they make headphones with the charging adapter. The only downside of no headphone port is that you can’t use aux cords in cars,” said Sidney Johnstone, 11.

Of course there are pros and cons for virtually everything, but personally I would rate this phone an 9/10.
