Apple iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR Prices Revealed for PH!

The iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR might not be getting here until October 26, but that doesn’t mean Apple can’t reveal the prices ahead of time, does it? Of course, learning how much they cost might not matter if you can’t afford them in the first place. At least, for the highest storage variants, in which case, one kidney might not be enough.

Iphone XR

Then iPhone XR is the model most of us plebs will be able to afford, if at all. It comes in 6 different color variants: White, Black, Blue, Yellow, Coral, and the special edition (PRODUCT) RED variant which gives a cut directly to the Global Fund to fight AIDS. You’ll also have a choice between 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB flavors.

About The Author

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
