Like clockwork, a very special keynote presentation was carried out last night at the Steve Jobs Amphitheater in Cupertino, California.
That’s right people, the new iPhones are officially out.
The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR are set for pre-order starting on the 14th of September.
However even though the excitement, wonder, and curiosity are there for the new machines, so are the high prices. Yep, the XR, XS and XS Max have been priced at $749, $999 and $1,099, respectively.
And in rupees, this is the breakdown.
Prices in Pakistan:
iPhone XS (64GB) – 160,000 Rs
iPhone XS (256GB) – 185,000 Rs
iPhone XS (512GB) – 215,000 Rs

Oh and for those of us who think old is gold, the older iPhones have been priced at cheaper rates as well.
And though the prices are not as horrible as we thought (1 million starting), the whole world and Pakistanis especially, can’t help but comment on the new products and the money tags that come with them.

#iPhoneXSMax 512 GB costs $1449 and after translated currency and taxes will be priced in Pakistan at roughly Rs 200,000! Good news is; you can buy it through exclusive kidney-pool offer! Meaning you and your spouse each sell a kidney! 👌🏽😂🤦🏻♂️ #AppleEvent #iphonexs pic.twitter.com/7BtGey11uz

All of us probably right now.^
At least we can all say no matter what country we’re from, no matter what differences we may have between us, we can all bond over the fact that none of us can afford the new iPhone. Great.
What do you think of the new models? Are you excited about them? Is the dual sim device really a game changer? Let us know in the comments below! Love you.
