Tim Cook defends pricing of new iPhones, says it's worth the money

South African Apple retailer, the iStore, has revealed the first official local pricing for the iPhone Xs and Xs Max, which will go on sale on 28 September. The company started ramping up mass production of the XS ahead of the XR model, they added, in order to give Apple a one-month window to test the water with its pricier devices without facing cheaper competition from itself.

The information comes from Digitimes, a sometimes-accurate source of information on the supply side of consumer electronics.

The iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max are going to deliver a better battery life than the previous iPhones, while on the other hand, XR is going to have the best battery life among the three.

It's not the end of the world, as you'll still be able to charge the iPhone XS with the slow charger, much as you'd still be able to drive that fast, expensive sports vehicle on cheap tires. In comparison, the iPhone X sports a 2,716mAh battery. Also, in another report, Apple is said to be unlikely to include the lightning-to-headphone jack converter in 2018 iPhone models. Though it didn't have the big and flashy high-definition screens of modern smartphones like Samsung's Galaxy phones, the iPhone SE offered great performance in an adorable package. The 512GB variant of the XS costs Dh255 per month for two years or Dh463 per month for 12 months. According to him, he has been queuing up for the latest iPhone models for years and this is his first time to be No.1 in the queue.

At 158 x 77 x 8mm, the Xs Max is a bit smaller than the Note 9, but at 208g weighs a touch more. Love playing games? Then another good reason why you should buy it. Non the less, the sky-high price tags will definitely create a lot of fuss among the buyers. Just check out the queue in front of the Apple Store in Singapore. Look at the price and specification!

In his iPhone XS unboxing video, the YouTube reviewer MKBHD put it well: "I was kind of hoping by 2018 we could get either a fast charger in the box, or a USB-C-to-Lightning [cable], or both".

So, with all our hopes and speculations let's just wait and watch.
