Tim Cook defends pricing of new iPhones, says it's worth the money

The iPhone 8 represents good value when compared with Apple’s new iPhone Xs

Having so many different iPhone models gave Apple a big advantage: While most smartphone makers could only afford to focus on one phone launch at a time, Apple was selling phones for just about everyone, whether you wanted something affordable or high-end, big or small.

Will you be queueing up for the new iPhone?

With its 6.5-inch OLED display, the iPhone XS Max is officially wading into "phablet" territory.

The iPhone XS Max costs up to S$2,349 in Singapore. And now days after the launch, Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook has defended the pricing of the new iPhones saying that they are worth it.

He said the phones' screens offer better colour precision, a faster camera with 4K abilities, and a more accurate Facial ID to unlock the phone. The iPhone XS features two rear-facing 12MP cameras, a f/1.8 wide-angle and f/2.4, which can shoot 4K video at up to 60fps. That's thanks to the iPhone's new water and dust resistance, so at least there's a good reason why the display is held so firmly in place.

Apple fans in India are awaiting the arrival of these phones in the country, but until now we did not have much information regarding their launch and availability in India. "And so it's about $1 a day". "And so if you look at even the phone that's priced over $1,000, most people pay about $30 a month for it". Apple says the iPhone XS Max has a 1.5 hour longer battery life than the iPhone X.

Apple has begun shipping the first wave of iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max smartphones to customers, and the former has already been disassembled (complete with video footage).
