Best Buy stops selling overpriced iPhone X units after customer backlash
Best Buy announced last week that it will sell the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus devices at a higher price, but didn't exactly specify why. Customers who would buy either the three Apple smartphones mentioned would be charged an extra $100 when paying the full price upfront.
Well, that's not the case anymore since Best Buy announced that it had to halt the sales of iPhone X and iPhone 8 after customers complained about the $100 premium charge. However, the US retailers continue to sell Apple's iPhones, but only via carrier installment plans.
In a short statement, Best Buy said that even though there was clearly a high demand for the unlocked iPhone X, it has decided to stop selling it for a higher price because it would basically affect the company's image.
