It’s Friday, Oct. 19 — which means that you can officially preorder Apple’s upcoming iPhone XR.

Apple made the iPhone XR available for preorder starting at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time today. You can get your order in by using Apple’s online storefront, or through the Apple Store app (available here).

Buying directly from Apple, U.S. users can opt for an iPhone XR model from any of the major carriers — Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. Users can also choose a SIM-free unlocked version.

Similarly, the iPhone XR will also be available to preorder form the major U.S. carriers, as well as retailers like Best Buy.

If you’re reading this and you want an iPhone XR, we recommend that you get your preorder in as soon as possible. Supply of certain models and configurations may already be selling out.

About the iPhone XR

The iPhone XR is a mid-range 6.1-inch handset that sports many of the features of its OLED counterparts, including Face ID, an edge-to-edge display, wireless charging, and Apple’s A12 Bionic chip.

To keep its cost lower, the iPhone XR does make a few compromises — like swapping a stainless steel chassis for aluminum and an OLED display for new Liquid Retina LCD technology. It also trades a dual-lens camera setup for a single-lens rear-camera.

Unlike the iPhone XS and XS Max, the iPhone XR will also come in a variety of new bold colors like white, black, blue, coral, yellow and (PRODUCT)RED. (You’ll also be able to pick up a new clear case to show off said color.)

The iPhone XR starts at $749 for the 64GB configuration or about $37.41 a month for 24 months via Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program. The 128GB and 256GB models run $799 and $899 respectively.

If you manage to get your iPhone XR preorder in today, you can expect the handset to arrive on your doorstep starting next Friday, Oct. 26.
