Apple Just Got An IPhone XR Sales License From FCC

    According to foreign media reports, the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Thursday announced that Apple has sold the iPhone XR. The phone will be available in less than a month.

    Prior to this, Apple had to issue a disclaimer on the iPhone XR product introduction page: "iPhone XR has not been approved by the FCC. iPhone XR will not be sold or leased until it is approved."

    Now, Apple can see this disclaimer on the iPhone XR page. However, Apple should quickly revoke this statement.

    It is widely believed that the iPhone XR will pass the FCC review. Apple often waits until late to submit its new iPhone to a regulatory agency for review. It does this effectively to prevent leaks.

    iPhone XR's scheduled event will begin on October 19th and its shipping date will be October 26. This phone has many of the same features as the iPhone XS and XS Max, such as the A12 processor, Face ID facial recognition system and full screen. However, it will use a 6.1-inch LCD screen instead of an OLED screen. Moreover, it will give up the 3D Touch stereo touch function and the second rear camera lens.
