I agree I also feel nostalgic. I have an X but get drawn to these colors. They look almost plastic in a way which I like. I know of course they have back glass. Can’t wait see em in store.

Wished they would have released the iPhone Xr in the green coloured they had for the iPod nano 3rd generation this was one of my first apple products and I loved it so much

Teddy told me that in Greek, "nostalgia" literally means "the pain from an old wound.
“It is it not the wheel, it is a carousel.”

“Gentlemen, good luck at the rest of your meetings”

One of his best pitches ever.

Yes I'm really excited to get my XR too. It's nice the colors bring a nice change of spectrum. That nostalgia is strong, takes me back to when the Apple released the white iPhone 4.

The white version is the first time a silver frame has been used with a black front bezel since the first iPhone.
Are you implying that the 4 through 6S didn't have a silver looking frame with black front?

Yes, the silver version of the iphone 4 through 8 all had white front bezels.
The iPhone, iPhone 4, and iPhone 4s all had silver frames, even on the ones with black glass. The iPhone 5 and later models had frames that corresponded with the glass colors.

So I'm %25 wrong. Apologizes.
STILL, it's been a long time.
Yeah, it's definitely been awhile. It'll be nice to see something different, and it looks like that's what the iPhone Xr is going to have a lot of, design-wise, which is nice.

My husband and I both loved the blue iPhone 5c, and we're excited to be able to get a blue iPhone again. If the rumored clear Apple cases are real and don't have the common problems of those cases, we'll be picking those up to go with the phone.

I don’t know if the XR reminds me of something. So many design flaws of iPhones with misplaced cameras and ugly antenna bands cloud my memory.
It's sad that people actually get affected by the look of a cell phone. The whole scene people made over the antenna's on the 6 was embarrassing

It's a $40 bumper in case you're not aware. So overpriced

Not as embarrassing as those ugly antenna bands on so many mirror selfies of beautiful people with beautiful hair and beautiful clothes in a nice room full of nice things, except for the horrible backside of an iPhone 6. Remember how Steve Jobs bragged about Apple computers looking better from the back than the others from the front? That wasn’t true for many years. Apple had to make severe compromises in design to cram everything into a small body. The XR is an outlier in that it is unusually beautiful for an iPhone. It almost doesn’t belong to the others.
