Apple kicks off their iPhone XR pre-orders on Friday, October 19 at 12:01AM PDT/3:01AM EDT, which means Canadians will be staying up late tonight or setting an alarm to wake up.

Ahead of tonight’s pre-order, Apple lifted an embargo this morning on some hands-on videos, which were shared on YouTube by various channels and media publications.

The videos below provide a better look at iPhone XR colours, so if you were undecided on how these look, they’re worth checking out below:

The iPhone XR camera comes with a 6.1-inch “Liquid Retina” display, sporting a 1792 x 828 resolution with 326 ppi. The display supports True Tone and wide colour (P3).

The phone’s single rear camera can take Portrait mode pictures for human faces, while it lacks Stage Mono and Stage Portrait Lighting effects (the front-facing camera has all five effects).

The iPhone XR has battery life that is claimed to be 1.5 hours longer than an iPhone 8 Plus, while its water resistance rating of IP67 means it can last up to 30 minutes under one metre of water.

iPhone XR starts at $1029 in Canada for the entry 64GB model. You picking one up tonight?
