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.
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?
The answer? A lot.
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.
Wow, huh? I think I’ll be fine with my discontinued iPhone X for a while. You?
