Apples most expensive iPhone is finally available for purchase in South Africa. Within hours of being available it was sold out online. While this is great news for Apple, it is somewhat mind-boggling to think of if you consider the price-tag. Bloomberg recently revealed that it costs Apple around R6500 to assemble Apples iPhone Xs Max 256gb. This is R20 000 less than what it retails for in South Africa. If there is any country that is feeling the wrath of a pricing structure of Americas first $1 Trillion company, it’s South Africa. Critics speculated that Apples iPhone Xs would not experience much success, especially in South Africa. They, however, have been pleasantly surprised with the iPhones selling out online in the first few hours of going on sale.
What can you buy for the price of Apples most expensive iPhone Xs
All inclusive Holiday to Maldives inc flights for 7 nights R33 000
MSI GE73 Intel Core i7 17.3″ Gaming Notebook R30999

A McDonalds Big Mac every day for 2 years
The list is endless. The point is that the new iPhone Xs doesn’t come cheap. If you’re one of those people who cringe at the price of the new iPhone you could be looking at it at face value or just simply can not afford it
Considering an iPhone Xs or Note 9 as just a phone undermines the power of a “good” smartphone in the world we live in now. Phones have gone from means of connecting people to the means of business for many people across the world. You’re essentially paying for much more than just being able to make phone calls. One particular selling point of the new iPhone Xs is that it allows you to shoot 4K video and comparatively better than some expensive cameras.
