The naming of Phil Schiller: iPhone XR has no special meaning

Prior to iPhone XR's launch, Apple's senior vice president, Phil Schiller (Phil Schiller), spoke to foreign media Engadget in an interview with. IPhone XR, which many analysts predicted would be the best-selling iPhone model.

Engadget's interview with Schiller mainly involved two aspects of the iPhone XR: Why is this phone named XR and its display screen below 1080p. These two aspects have caused widespread concern when Apple released the iPhone XR.

When it comes to the name XR, Schiller said that Apple did not choose an acronym for a particular word or phrase, the standard that Apple has followed since the iPhone 4s went public. Some people regard the iPhone 4s as a Siri phone, but Apple has never confirmed this statement, and since then, the connection between the iPhone's naming and specific features has become less obvious.

Interestingly, however, Phil Schiller said the suffixes of XS and XR did make sense for him personally, similar to the auto industry. "I like cars and things that run fast," he said with a smile. "R and S are letters for special sports cars."

Another big controversy over the phone since the launch of iPhone XR last month has come from its display screen. Specifically, users of the screen resolution. YouTube video site have released many videos, criticizing the iPhone XR screen for being too old. Only 720p, and most new Android phones offer 1920 x 1080 displays, even at the lower end.

The iPhone XR has a screen resolution of 1792 x 828 and a pixel density of 326 ppi, as with the iPhone 8, but last year no one complained about the low resolution of the iPhone 8. In response, Phil Schiller said he largely ignored these concerns: "I think the only way to judge the screen is to look at it." Apple calls these screens' retina displays' because your eyes can't tell a single pixel unless you stick your face to the glass. "if you can't see pixels, at some point these numbers don't mean anything."
