Apple introduced iPhone 11 last week as the successor to the iPhone XR. With the iPhone XR prices going down. The iPhone XR was introduced last year alongside the iPhone XS and XS max. Essentially, it was a phone with X-style bezel-less design with an affordable price. The iPhone XR features an LCD Liquid Retina display with a 1792×828 resolution at 326 pixels-per-inch. One thing to note is that due to the LCD display used here instead of OLED, the bezels on the iPhone XR are slightly larger than those on the iPhone XS and iPhone 11 Pro.
The iPhone 11 looks very similar to the iPhone XR - displaying a 6.1-inch display with a glass and aluminum cover. On the rear side you will notice an ugly camera bump, which people feel hard to adjust. The iPhone 11 comes with IPV8 water-resistance rating which means it can withstand a maximum depth of 2-meters up to 30-minutes. The display is similar to what was in iPhone XR. The iPhone 11 offers 2x optical zoom out, unlike the iPhone XR. Both phones have a faceID although iPhone 11 claims to have the faster one.
The iPhone XR is best for people who want the iPhone X-style design, but is more affordable. But you will get a comparatively slow processor as the latest phone comes with the more powerful A1 bionic processor and new colors. If you care about the photography, optical zoom, and night mode, it could be worth the upgrade - especially with the price difference being $100 instead. The iPhone 11 comes with 256GB of storage. So basically these are very much similar phones except for processing power and optical zoom. The front camera is 12MP with 4K video and slow motion feature whereas the iPhone XR doesn't have these features.
