The 512GB variant of the iPhone XS Max costs $1449, but it’s even more expensive in Europe

In brief: After months of speculation and rumors, Apple launched its new line of iPhones yesterday, confirming suspicions that it would unveil three different handsets. Not known for its policy of releasing value-for-money products, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max cost $999 and $1,099, respectively. But in the case of latter, that price reaches and eye-watering $1449 for the high-end variant, and it’s even more expensive in Europe.

Back when the now-discontinued iPhone X was released, many eyebrows were raised when it was revealed to be the first mainstream smartphone priced at just under $1000. At its event yesterday, Apple unveiled the iPhone XS, which also starts at $999, along with the iPhone XS Max. With its larger, 6.5-inch display (2688 x 1242) and longer battery life, the XS Max costs more—$1099—but that’s only for the 64GB version. If you want a full 512GB, expect to pay $1449.

The 512GB variant of the 5.8-inch iPhone XS is also pricey—$1349—but it seems we’re at the point where a top-spec flagship smartphone can cost almost $1500. For comparison, Samsung’s recently launched Note 9 with 512GB of internal storage was priced at $1249 at launch—the same price as an iPhone XS Max with 256GB of space.

It’s even worse in Europe: The top-tier iPhone XS Max reaches £1449 in the UK, equal to around $1891. In Germany, it’s $1917. The handset goes for $1950 in Portugal and $1963 in Italy. While in Hungary, it’s a massive $2064.

Despite being so costly, buyers of Apple’s new iPhones will find that they no longer come with a Lightning-to-3.5mm adaptor in the box. Unless you’re going wireless or using headphones with a Lightning connector, be prepared to buy the standalone accessory that’s priced at $9.

Here is a full list of each new iPhones’ starting price in different countries, listed in local currencies.
