Apple iPhone XR Gets FCC Certification After A Week of Release

Apple’s 12th September mega event happened last week. We saw iPhone XS, XS Max and XR unveil in their full avatar. However, it was later revealed that the ‘budget’ device iPhone XR has not received FCC approval. Now more than after a week of its release, iPhone XR Gets FCC Certification. Below you can see the approval document. iPhone XR goes by the id E3220A.

An FCC ID is the unique product ID  FCC assigns to identify the wireless products in the market. The FCC chooses 3 or 5 character “Grantee” codes to identify the business that creates the product. Usually, a smartphone gets its certifications done well ahead prior to the release date. With iPhone XR it looks like an exceptional case.

Apple iPhone XR packs 6.1-inches LCD Liquid Retina Display with storage options for 64/128/256 GB. It will start at $749 for the base variant and onwards. It packs the latest A12 Bionic chipset and runs on iOS 12 out-of-the-box. Apple has cut its cost by providing the XR in an aluminum frame with glass back body. Also, to maintain its budget, the rear camera only has a single lens of 12 MP. However, it brings all the latest features as smart HDR, Advanced Bokeh, and Portrait mode. There is a front face shooter with portrait and HDR as well which is of 7MP.

iPhone XR Pre-order will start from October 19th and units will ship from October 26th. iPhone XS and XS max pre-order will begin on 14th September and it ships on 21st September. In India, the iPhone XS and XS max will be available around 28th September. It is a good thing that iPhone XR gets FCC certification well ahead of its pre-order.
