Which Color iPhone XR Should You Buy?

Unlike the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, Apple is offering the iPhone XR is not one, two or three but six different colors. This is the first time after the iPhone 5c that Apple is offering one of its iPhone with such a wide variety of color options. If you are confused as to which color iPhone XR you should buy, read our guide below to help you decide.

Apple is offering the iPhone XR in the following color options:

  • White
  • Black
  • Blue
  • Yellow
  • Coral
  • (Product)RED

Irrespective of which color you go with, it is important to note that the iPhone XR features an aluminum chassis with glass front and back. And all color variants of the device come with a black front. This is because it allows Apple to better hide the notch which would otherwise be glaringly obvious with a white front.

I am going to be straight up honest here. If there’s one color variant of the iPhone XR you should not buy, it is the white one. This is because as mentioned above irrespective of which color iPhone XR you buy, the front of the device will have a black front panel. This ends up giving the white iPhone XR a ‘panda’-like look which might not be liked by all.

If you don’t want a flashy looking iPhone XR, black is the color to go for since it gives the phone a very stealthy look. Apple has been releasing iPhones in black since forever so if you go for the black iPhone XR, passersby won’t be able to distinguish your iPhone XR from other iPhones from the rear. But then if you are not into that sort of the thing and simply want a sleek and stealthy looking device, the black color of the iPhone XR is going to be perfect for you.


Apple’s blue treatment is unlike that of Huawei. So, the blue iPhone XR looks….like a blue iPhone XR. It’s not a flashy blue though, so if you are bored with the usual white and black colors, I’d recommend you to go for the blue iPhone XR.


This color gives the iPhone XR a banana look. Some might like it, some might hate it, But its certainly different and I guess that’s what works for it. If you are someone who wants their phone to stand out in a crowd and use your phone naked or with a clear case, go for the yellow iPhone XR. If you primarily prefer using a black case, it would make little sense to buy the yellow iPhone XR since you’d end up hiding its unique color.


If you don’t want to buy the (Product)Red iPhone XR for some reason, you might want to look into buying the coral variant of the device. I don’t really expect this color to do extremely well since its an odd choice for sure. Nonetheless, if the red iPhone XR is a bit too bold for your liking, the muted coral finish will suit your taste buds just fine.


I will be straight up honest here: if you want a smoking hot iPhone XR, buy the Product(RED) variant. Apple never got around to releasing a (Product)Red iPhone X or iPhone XS, so you will have to keep yourself happy with the (Product)Red iPhone XR. Unlike the iPhone 8, the (Product)Red iPhone XR comes with a black front which makes it a stunner to look at.

Of the six colors that Apple offers the iPhone XR in, the (Product)Red is hands down my favorite. If you are a youngster or are relatively young, I would strongly recommend you go to for the (Product)Red color.

Buy iPhone XR

You can buy the iPhone XR from any of the following retailers and carriers below:

If you don’t go for the usual black or white iPhone XR, my recommendation would be to buy a case with a matching color. Otherwise, if you end up using a black or white case, it would be kind of moot to buy the iPhone XR in any other color.
