    They look like gold bars. Will be very popular in Asia and the Emirates.

    thought I saw $1450 when I favorited mine.

    edit: just double checked, $1449.00 according to my app.

    edit 2: I see it's corrected now but since my comment looks like I'm making a fuss over $1 it was originally stated as $1499 in the article headline :p

    The capacity in the article has a typo for the XS. It should be 64, 256, 512GB

    All that work to make it look nice, and then we cover it up in a ridiculously large case because zomg $1500.

    The iPhone XS: named after Apple’s profits.

    Have to say I was prepared for a $100 price drop on the Xs and the Maxi Xs to start at $999.

    But crossing that $1k barrier ($1099) as the starting level & with the 1st storage upgrade taking us to an eye watering $1250 here in the U.S. - seems too high from a psychological "feel" point. I doubt others will see it that way and will buy them in loads. I noticed both Xs's are available unlocked, not tied to carrier in the U.S.. (Xr isn't showing that way although its a long ways off)

    But, it makes me look at the Xr and say for $350 less I can live with its slight downgrades (no zoom camera, .4 inch less of display) and upgrades - much better battery life (which I prize) and better gaming performance having the same CPU / GPU pushing many fewer pixels around. JMHO...

    And the first people that we will see with these $1500 phones will be teenagers.

    1499? What is wrong with people? A constant lust for something others don't have - until they all do, only to become outdated quickly and replaced a year later by another thing others don't have - until they do...

    Olympic rat race, people... be poor, forever!

    2048 USD in Sweden. Thank you Apple, for whatever arbitrary price increase you decided to apply. Have already taken VAT, currency fluctuations and the Cheeto in the White House into account (any imposed tariffs). 200 USD more expensive than the X was last year. What gives?

    Hooray! Now we can keep "winning" any market share arguments with "...but who has the most profitable phone" for another year. Thank you so much Apple. We fans appreciate knowing we can always play THAT card to settle any debate.

    Here's hoping for $1799 next year!

    And hoping Apple finance will stretch out the payment plan so we can keep spinning how little it is monthly, when spread over maybe 48-72 months of payments.

    All ;)

    $1,500?!?!?!?

    WUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Right. So a phone costs more than most people’s mortgage payment. Okay.

    Even I think those prices have gotten out of hand.

    XS Max + Apple Care + Taxes in US (except some states) may come close to $1900!!! Shockingly "cheap" for something that will outdate in exactly 12 months or grind to such slow state that replacement becomes necessary in around 3 years. /s

    Apple can do what it wants, but boy these aren’t cheap. My iPhone 7 was $649 when it was released in 2016, but $999 as a base now is just absurd. I loved the x when I was using it in store but will only get it discounted if that.

    And $1449 for the maxed out one, yowsa!

    They simply charge what they know the market will bear.

    It's similar with concert tickets and touts, except they are truly limited in supply.

    We have only ourselves to blame.
