Apple announced three new iPhones this week: the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR.

The iPhone XS starts at $999, the iPhone XS Max starts at $1,099, and the iPhone XR starts at $749.

Here are 9 reasons you should buy an iPhone XR instead of the iPhone XS:

1. The iPhone XR is $250 cheaper than the iPhone XS to start.

Price is probably the biggest consideration for most people, and the iPhone XR has the iPhone XS beat in terms of price.

The iPhone XR starts at $749 for 64 GB of storage, but can cost up to $899 for 256 GB of storage.

The iPhone XS starts at $999 for 64 GB of storage, but can cost up to $1,349 for 512 GB of storage.

The iPhone XS Max starts at $1,099 for 64 GB of storage, but can cost up to $1,449 for 512 GB of storage.

Not many people need 512 GB of storage on their phones — I’m only using 62 GB of my available 256 GB on my iPhone X, and I have over 200 apps, and tons of old photos and text messages. But even if you opt for less storage, you’re still saving more money with the iPhone XR compared to the iPhone XS.

2. The iPhone XR is available in more colors than the iPhone XS.

Apple sells the iPhone XS and XS Max in three color options: silver, space grey, and a new gold option.

The iPhone XR, meanwhile, comes in six different colors: black, white, yellow, red, blue, and coral, which is sort of like an orange-y pink.

3. The iPhone XR has a larger screen than the iPhone XS.

While it doesn’t come close to the gargantuan 6.5-inch display on the iPhone XS Max, the iPhone XR actually has a larger display than the normal iPhone XS.

The iPhone XR has a 6.1-inch LCD display, which should show you more of your content compared to the 5.8-inch OLED display on the iPhone XS.
