    For most, iPhone XR 64GB is fine but why not get double storage to 128GB for only $50 extra ? For color, Black/white is standard and in absence of Gold, Red will be choice for many. One thing about color is if you don't buy clear case than the back color has less meaning. Because the front is all black(unlike previous iPhones) so no matter what color you select, the back is hidden by non-clear case..
