A rear-panel modification on the Apple iPhone XS Max jacks the price to over $15,000


For many people, the idea of paying $1,449 for a 512GB Apple iPhone XS Max is preposterous. But that price is not even 10% of the $15,340 price tag placed on an iPhone XS Max by Russian luxury accessories producer Caviar. What makes the phone so expensive is the custom rear casing put on the phone by the company. The top-of-the-line Maximum Fine Gold rear panel contains 150 grams of precious metal.

The Maximum Fine Gold is one of five different Maximum Collection modifications offered by the company, each one featuring a 512GB iPhone XS Max. The different models include:

  • Maximum Invincible ($5,500)-this custom back gives the iPhone XS Max the look of something invincible, like a tank or armor. The rear plate is made from 1mm of hardened titanium with accents made of fake rivets and stitches. This rear cover will supposedly stop a bullet. 
  • Maximum Ultralight ($5,200)-Using carbon instead of glass allows this backing to reduce the weight of an iPhone XS Max by 8 grams.
  • Maximum Diamonds ($9,890)-Over 400 diamonds are mounted on this backing, forming a design that spells out the word "Max" using a little imagination.
  • Maximum Gold ($5,960)-This backing features a full coating of Gold.
Shipping is free to anywhere in the world. Each order comes in a wooden lacquered case with a black velvet lining. Inside the box you'll find certificates of authenticity and the warranty, a USB cable, and a charger. Keep in mind that the work done by Caviar voids Apple's own warranty.

If you're sitting on a pile of money and don't know what to do with it, you might want to check out Caviar's website by clicking on the sourcelink below. First though, you might want to see what these modifications look like by tapping on the video at the top of this article.
