Price is probably the biggest consideration for most people, and the iPhone XS has the larger XS Max beat when it comes to value.
The iPhone XS starts at $ 999 for 64 GB of storage, but can cost up to $ 1,349 for 512 GB of storage.
The iPhone XS Max starts at $ 1,099 for 64 GB of storage, but can cost up to $ 1,449 for 512 GB of storage.
To be clear, 512 gigabytes is an extraordinary amount of storage — I have over 200 apps on my iPhone X, plus tons of old texts and photos, and I’m only using 62 of my 64 total gigabytes of space (having 100 GB of iCloud storage helps there, but that only costs $ 0.99 a month).
So, you’ll save at least $ 100 by choosing the iPhone XS instead of the larger Max model. One hundred dollars may not seem like much, but keep in mind, you’ll also want to buy a handful of crucial accessories like cases and insurance plans on top of the cost of the phone, so these costs do add up.
