    We haven't listed every time zone for every country, such as in Canada, Russia, and the United States, nor have we listed every available pre-order country, so make sure to double check your specific time zone so you're certain you know the exact time that pre-orders will kick off. A time zone converting website is a useful tool for confirming accurate pre-order times.

    It's not yet clear if supplies of the iPhone XR will be constrained, but there have been rumors of production issues that led to a launch delay, so it's best to pre-order the iPhone XR as soon as possible if you're aiming to get a new device on release day.

    iPhone XR pre-orders will be available on October 19 in Albania, Andorra, Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Greenland, Guernsey, Herzegovina, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Ireland, Isle of Man, Italy, Japan, Jersey, Kosovo, Kuwait, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malta, Malaysia, Mexico, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Oman, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, the UAE, UK, US, and US Virgin Islands.

    The first iPhone XR pre-orders will arrive to customers on Friday, October 26, the XR's official launch date.

    When you can preorder the iPhone XR in every time zone, except we are not going to list every time zone for countries such as Canada, Russia, or the US, etc.

    lolwut. Alaska and Hawaii aren’t exactly obscure places, to name a couple.

    This will be interesting.

    The Mac faithful willmost likely have picked an xs variant.

    Will there be the same fervour for the xr?

    I know it just came out, but also wonder if any will switch from Xs to Xr?

    Sorry to be that guy but Australia East is actually 6:01pm, Daylight Saving is in effect however 5:01pm is correct for the State of Queensland which doesn't observe Daylight Saving.

    What color will be the most popular?

    My guess is blue.

    Unfortunately, this will always be known as the poor man's iPhone aimed at kids no matter how good it really is.

    That says a lot about the person who judges others that way. I don't see anything wrong with XR, and it's far from being a "poor man's" anything at $800 price point!

    Apple marketing at it's finest, making people think $800 is cheap for poor men. ;)

    The LCD screen is actually better if your planning to keep it a few years because the OLED screens usually show some burn in after a year or two.

    Maybe if the market weren’t flooded with so many cheaper notch knock-offs.

    Black is the answer to your question.

    I agree. These cheap phones are perfectly fine for women as well.

    Did you know that Russia has 11 time zones?

    Yes they do, my Note 8 had a small faint burn-in at the bottom of where the Youtube videos end. Had Samsung replace the screen for free. My sister had a S4 a few years ago and she had burn in on where the keyboard area was. I talked to the repair guy when I had my screen replaced and he told me all OLED screens will have burn-in. This is one of reasons I'll never buy an OLED TV. I usually get a new phone every year, but TV's I keep for much longer.

    any leaks on if there will be any carrier promotions for the XR? With the $700 off 2 Xs devices, it brought the price point below the XR at full price. Will be interesting if they discount at all.
