As for the iPhone XR, it proved to be the best-selling iPhone worldwide ranging from the launch and till final yr’s iPhone 11 hit the cabinets. The telephone continues to be going robust when it comes to gross sales, regardless of a decline, however with inexpensive iPhone 12 developing and cheaper iPhone SE (2020) already available in the market, it seems that it’s the proper time for official discontinuation.
