Apple teased by Xiaomi for over-the-top pricing of iPhones

However Apple's third new iPhone, the XR, isn't available for preorders yet.

"iPhone Xs is packed with next-generation technologies and is a huge step forward for the future of the smartphone", Apple's senior vice-president of Worldwide Marketing Philip Schiller said. Especially the iPhone Xs Max is prone to sell out tonight.

Pre-orders for the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are now open.

If you were hoping to be one the first to get your hands on Apple's latest premium iPhones, you may need to wait a while.




Likewise, Forbes' Gordon Kelly wrote a detailed head-to-head comparison of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, but advised consumers to buy the iPhone XR, as the device "delivers all the key features" of its higher-end counterparts at a considerably lower price.

The new iPhone XS from Apple might look great but you'll soon get its best bits without having to shell out for a brand new iPhone.

But regardless of which iPhone you are after, expect to pay more this year.

As you already know the price of the iPhone XS Max stretches up to Rs 1.45 lakh this year in India (all thanks to the country's taxes) and the fact that Apple still isn't fully convinced about making in India. The cheapest new iPhone is $750 and prices quickly climb up to $1,450. The XS Max's specifications and features are similar to those of the XS, except for the larger screen and the extra hour of battery life. However, the smallest iPhone you could buy now is the iPhone 7 or the iPhone 8. Otherwise, the performance and camera improvements in the iPhone XS definitely do not warrant spending as much as $1,400 to upgrade. Because of all the problems Apple had with iOS 11, iOS 12 focuses mainly on improving performance as opposed to flashy new features. However, a visit to Apple's website shows that it's no longer being included with older iPhone models, either.
