Thoughts about the prices on the new iPhones? RIP iPhone X, aged 1 year.
A lot. The answer? Wow, huh? You? Should you choose to pre-order tomorrow (for the iPhone XS and XS Max; the XR will be available for ordering on October 19), here’s what you’re looking at in terms of Canadian pricing:
iPhone XR (aka the “budget” iPhone)
64 GB: $1,029
128 GB: $1,099
256 GB: $1,239
The iPhone XS (aka the closest thing to a direct replacement for the iPhone X, which is dead)
64 GB: $1,379
256 GB: $1,589
512 GB: $1,859
The iPhone XS Max (aka the plus size model)
64 GB: $1,519
256 GB: $1,729
512 GB: $1,999
Add in tax (which brings the price of the most expensive model to $2,259) plus Apple Care, you’re looking at a phone that costs a touch over $2,500. We heard plenty about 7-nanometre chips, super high-res displays, a better camera, dual sim capability and yada, yada, yada–but HOW MUCH ARE THE DAMN THINGS GOING TO COST? I think I’ll be fine with my discontinued iPhone X for a while. When Apple unveiled their new iPhones on Wednesday–the iPhones XR, XS and XS Max–the company wasn’t totally forthcoming during the presentation about how much the new devices cost.
