September 12 became a signature date for people around the world. Not only was the iPhone XS released on that day, but it was also when most Apple users realised they might not be able to afford it.
With a release date of September 21, users are already placing orders for their new iPhones that will take one to two weeks of delivery.
Others, however, are already calculating different ways to afford their new iPhone XS and have gone to extreme measures – digging into their savings, cashing their salaries in, auctioning items off or just taking out money loads.
And it’s no wonder that the new iPhone XS is driving people crazy, it includes the following features: super retina screens, faster Face ID, powerful chips, better dual-camera systems, 4K video mode and more options.
