How to pre-order the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max

How to pre-order the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max

That being said, on its own he notes it "could be mistaken for the iPhone X of last year". In Russia, for example, you could snag a 64GB iPhone XS for $1,292, slightly below the $1,380 iPhone X launch price that same Russian customer would have paid. In Poland, someone who wants that same iPhone XS Max will have to pay $1,956 (compared to $1,449 here in the U.S., of course). The overall design is much the same.

Apple's iPhone XR pricing strategy shows the company is pushing users onto a more secure authentication, signaling that Apple Pay enhancements are coming, Goldman Sachs says. It starts at $749 for the 64 GB model and will cost more for its 128 GB and 256 GB models. It has an LCD screen instead of OLED and has a single camera instead of a dual camera. The Uncarrier Network announced that it's taking up to $300 off the cost of a new iPhone when you trade in your old iPhone.

As such, Gareth concludes that providing you don't want loads of advanced features, no "bells and whistles", then the camera system on the iPhone XR "will do you just fine".

Finally, TechRadar's Gareth Beavis states that, despite not being able to test the potency of the iPhone XR's battery, which remains an unknown quantity in terms of mAh, he believes "there are a few good reasons to think that the iPhone XR could have better battery life than expected". Why pay $US999 for the unbelievable screen on the iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max when you could effectively buy the same phone for $US100 less? Both factors that should conserve energy in comparison. With Apple killing it, the iPhone X becomes the shortest living iPhone that Apple has ever introduced. In Japan, the iPhone XS costs equivalent to $1,008, just a smidgen above USA pricing, excluding tax.

Up until Wednesday, Apple was selling the iPhone 6s for $US450, and the iPhone 6s Plus for $US550.
