Apple’s Budget Friendly Variant iPhone XR Gets Approved By FCC

After weeks of heavy rumors, Apple announced three new iPhones at an event a few weeks back. The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR are the latest 2018 iPhones. The tech world was eagerly waiting for them. Apple claimed that the iPhone XR is the budget variant of its new smartphone series. When the device appeared on the company’s website there was a disclaimer at the end of the page, saying the device might not be available for sale, per FCC rules. At that time, the phone was not approved by FCC. Recently, we came to know that FCC has approved the smartphone just in time for pre-orders.
