The iPhone XR hits stores Oct. 26.

Preorders for Apple's iPhone XR kicked off at 12 a.m. PT on Friday. The device will hit stores Oct. 26. The only model that won't be delivered on launch day is the 128GB yellow model from T-Mobile. This will ship in one to two weeks.

You can preorder the iPhone XR at at: Apple Store | Sprint | Best Buy | Walmart | Verizon | AT&T | T-Mobile.

The larger Max costs $1,099 to $1,449, depending on the amount of storage.
