Though the iPhone XS and XS Max have been here for a couple of weeks now, Apple isn’t quite done with the iPhone releases.
Local distributor of everything Apple, Core Group, earlier this week confirmed that later this month, the company will release the third and final iPhone for 2018: the iPhone XR. While the XS and XS Max are clearly intended to be Apple’s high-end phones, the iPhone XR has a price point that’s closer to what mainstream consumers are used to paying for a flagship phone.
The iPhone XR is scheduled to launch on October 26 nationwide at a R15 999 price point. Pre-orders will be open tomorrow, 19 October 2018 for cash purchases and on iStore’s revised payment plan in partnership with FNB Credit Card, allowing customers to pay off their iPhone at a reduced interest rate.
