Date:20 September 2018 Author: Brendon Petersen Tags:, , ,

When Apple unveiled the iPhone X in 2017, everyone was shocked at the $1000 pricetag which translated to a R20 999 cost for the entry-level anniversary device.

iStore has just revealed the pricing for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max and let’s just say that it’s not for the faint-hearted.

64GB 256GB 512GB
iPhone XS R21 999 R24 999 R29 999
iPhone XS Max R23 999 R26 999 R31 999


iStore does state that the prices do include free iCare Plus valued at R1 999*

The only difference between the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max is the screen size – the XS has a 5.8-inch OLED display while the XS Max has a massive 6.5-inch OLED display.

Both iPhones have an improved dual camera system, the A12 Bionic chip with next-generation Neural Engine, faster Face ID and wider stereo sound.

At this stage, no pricing information has been released for the iPhone XR.
