Apple’s new iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max will be available to buy from 21st September, with pre–orders starting £999.
The 5.8–inch iPhone Xs will cost £999 for a 64GB model. The larger iPhone Xs Max, which comes with a massive 6.5–inch display, will cost a hefty £1,099 for a 64GB version. 128GB and 256GB models are also on offer.
These are SIM–free prices, with the added benefit to users of being able to use an existing SIM card and contract or take out a cheap, monthly deal.
The high up–front cost, however, means that many will doubtless prefer to opt for a contract with one of the major networks.
While contracts have yet to be revealed, it’s likely that a 24-month package with no initial fee will cost as much as £100 a month for a top–end iPhone Xs Max, especially for those who want enough data to get the most out of their new device.
These two new iPhones feature OLED screen tech, as well as updated dual lens cameras, Face ID security smarts, a new A12 chipset and come with iOS 12 installed.
The devices were launched by Apple CEO Tim Cook alongside a cheaper model, the iPhone Xr, which packs a LCD screen and drops tech such as 3D Touch in order to keep costs down.
