T-Mobile announces prices for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and Apple Watch Series 4

T-Mobile announces prices for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and Apple Watch Series 4
Pre-orders for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are expected to go live in the United States today, and many carriers have already revealed their promos and prices for Apple's new smartphones. Since these are the first iPhones to support T-Mobile's 600MHz extended range LTE, the Uncarrier was among the first to confirm iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and Apple Watch Series 4 pricing.

Before we give you a rundown of all the pricing options, it's worth mentioning that T-Mobile offers slightly different prices to “super well-qualified customers.” Everything that you see below is available to “well-qualified” customers:

iPhone XS:

  • 64GB – $279.99 down, $30 per month for 24 months ($999.99 retail)
  • 256GB – $429.99 down, $30 per month for 24 months ($1,149.99 retail)
  • 512GB – $629.99 down, $30 per month for 24 months ($1,349.99 retail)

iPhone XS Max:
  • 64GB – $379.99 down, $30 per month for 24 months ($1,099.99 retail)
  • 256GB – $529.99 down, $30 per month for 24 months ($1,249.99 retail)
  • 512GB – $729.99 down, $30 per month for 24 months ($1,449.99 retail)

Apparently, T-Mobile will also have $0 down options for “super-well qualified) customers, but no specifics are available at the moment. Moreover, the carrier allows customers to trade in their eligible iPhone and get up to $300 towards the iPhone XS and XS Max purchase price, as 24 monthly bill credits.

As far as the Apple Watch Series 4 prices go, the smartwatch will come in two variations – 40mm and 4mm, which will be available for the amounts below:

Apple Watch Series 4 40mm:

  • Aluminum: $0 down, $20.83 per month ($499.99 retail)
  • Stainless Steel: $171.99 down, $22 per month ($699.99 retail)

Apple Watch Series 4 44mm

  • Aluminum: $0 down, $22.08 per month ($529.99 retail)
  • Stainless Steel: $221.99 down, $22 per month ($749.99 retail)

T-Mobile will open iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and Apple Watch Series 4 pre-orders on September 14, at 12:01 am PT. Also, Apple's devices are expected to hit the shelves on September 21.

The iPhone X was an experiment and Apple saw that people would buy even if they pushed the price higher. Great way to become a $2 trillion dollar company. I wonder how much the next one will cost.

I personally wouldn’t need 128-512gb on my phone. I called T-Mobile and got the XS Max 64 in space grey for $109.99 total. Which is surprising. I spent 279.99 for my iPhone X. Weird.

Damn, and I thought the Note 9 was expensive. At least it's worth the money, by giving you everything. Apple's giving a large screen, and gold color SMDH.

But you claimed the Note 9 isnt worth the same price? I'm confused as to how a phone that has less and does less is worth more than a phone that has more does more and cost equal or less. Please explain this attempt at logic.

Be his logic, one could be 6'5 and 5'6 at the same time.

$729.00 DOWN for a GD phone!!!! WTF??!!

That's because the phone is $1500. Other than millionaires, whose gonna buy it? Putting down 1/2 keeps the monthly payment on it around $50 vs having over $100+ added to a phone bill. Am sure Apple doesn't expect tye 512GB to sell in high numbers.

Biggest problem with iPhone users! They want so much to have the newest device even though it is marginally updated from what they have that they run out and spend top dollar on this less feature rich than the competition device. If they just waited the prices will come down as T-Mobile and all the other carriers will realize the these prices are too God Damn HIGH!!

What nonsense is this? Only fraction of iPhone users upgrade every year. iPhone X so far sold around 60 million. iPhone userbase is over 1 BILLION. So there's around billion potential people to buy these (not included all the Android switchers). So no the prices won't go down and sales going to be high like every year.

Here's why Apple will continue to do well: 1) iOS updates tend to go through a device for at least 3-5 years - with Android from other phone makers, you're lucky to get a few updates and they're always very slow. 2) High price isn't the barrier it seems once you factor in that many people only upgrade when they must due to lack of support/updates, and Apple supports it's devices much longer than others. 3) Google phones never quite became the 2nd option, and that's kept other phonemakers out front pushing their UI-overlays. 4) Buyers budget/plan for upgrades for phones now. People used to get new laptops/PCs much more frequently. Now, it's far more common for people to hang onto laptops/PCs until they simply die - 10 years or more because so much of what can be done is now accessible and can be done with mobile (smartphone) access. 5) Tablets hardly sell any more because large-screen phones do just about everything they do and more, in a more convenient package. Eliminating that category takes another $250-750 out of the tech expenses that now go into the phone. Apple's pricing right in the sweet spot of supply-demand. It doesn't look like it on paper, but buyer reaction shows that it is.

I dont think anything you said truly matters. 1st - Updates. An iPhone with iOS 12 still does less than the Galaxy S9, S8 and S7. Millions of people who buy phones dont care about updates. Only fanboys do. 2nd - high price. For fans no price is too high. As long as carriers make it affordable people will buy. But outside the US, the $1500 iPhone is gonna cost $2000+. Other than oil tycoons in Dubai, who can afford that? 3rd - Google isn't the only Android OEM. 4 and 5 are just pointless. People buy tablets as needed. Since new tablets don't offer anything to upgrade too, there is no point to upgrade unless it's broken or outdated and cant support newer apps. Phones may be able to replace tablets for a lot, but a bigger screen for media and games is better than a tiny phone even one close to 7". A 7" narrow phone is no match for a tablet at 10-12". My phone didnt replace by Surface. It is a great companion to it.
