iPhone XS Max 64GB (Silver) $1249 @ JB Hi-Fi (Normally $1749)


Just saw this on JB's website, very tempted to get one myself. $500 off is not bad.

Just a note to everyone too, it seems the 64GB iPhone 11 on Apple's website is $1199 RRP. Cheaper than this phone, but no OLED screen (which could affect battery life).

    oooh if the non max goes on sale for cheaper [$1149] then could be a winner

    IMO iPhone 11 is clear winner. I got it when Cashrewards had 7% at Apple.

    The iPhone 11 screen is great, I cannot see any pixels even when I try. The camera is better than the Xs and I get 2 day battery life easy (maybe because I'm on WiFi all day long?).


      Isn’t the 11 a refresh to the XR, which is the “lower” category compared to XS Max?

        Yes, but it definitely does not feel "lower" quality at all.

        Major differences I can see, the size sits in the middle between 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max (perfect size IMO), it does not have telephoto lens and it has aluminium frame instead of steel frame.

        And it's way cheaper than the Pro models.

      Screen is a noticeable step down both in size and quality though

      I agree, the only advantage of the Xs is the higher res OLED screen, I have the Xs Max and was toying with the 11 at Apple Store, the difference barely noticeable.
      The 11 has better performance, longer battery life, better camera, better networking, a brand new U1 chip (spatial awareness), more future proof.
      Of course it all comes down to price, there's no bad product really.


    Pretty normal price for these phones at the moment. Bought one of these from JB few months ago for same. Note this is not the 11.

    Apple iPhone XS Max 256GB (Silver) also available for $1399: https://www.jbhifi.com.au/products/apple-iphone-xs-max-256gb...


    Very few in stock and even fewer which aren't ex-display but Officeworks has the 256 GB XS (Non Max) for $1150, I managed to pick one up on Saturday. The manager in the store said he'd shave off $50 for an ex-display one.

      How generous of her. $50 on $1150. Fricking dreaming. Especially if it has been left powered on.


        I got the XS (non max) from TGG Telstra deal. Even though it was brand new in box, the battery was totally discharged. Had to recharge for a while before it even powered on.
        So yes - be very wary of display piece.


    The iPhone 12 RRP will be sub-1000 AUD ($649 USD) - if you can wait a few months

    It will be 128GB minimum with OLED

      Doubt that it'll be under 1000 AUD as 649 USD is around 988 AUD + 10% GST brings you to 1087 AUD already. Apple usually sticks on a slight % increase in price in Australia above this kind of straight up conversion. So I expect it to be around 1100 to 1200 AUD here if the 649 USD rumour is true. Only way that it'll be under 1000 is if the AUD grows way stronger

      Apple has a very high marketshare and brand loyalty in Aus compared to other countries so I don't think they'll need to really push their price point lower here as well.

      Nevertheless it sounds like it could be a good option in the future


        There are rumours about 4 models of iPhone 12 - the cheapest being 5.4" which might be priced like the new SE (higher than SE but lower than current iPhone 11). The next one (successor to iPhone 11) might be priced higher than current iPhone 11 price in Australia.

          The 5.4 inch one you are referring to is also the same model that rumour sites are talking about (and the same one the first commenter was talking about) with regard to the 649 USD starting price:

          Rumors suggest that pricing on the iPhone 12 could start as low as $649 this year, which would be the lowest price that Apple has charged for an OLED iPhone. Pricing could range from $649 to $1,099, with these estimates rumored:
          5.4-inch iPhone 12: $649
          6.1-inch iPhone 12: $749
          6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro: $999
          6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max: $1,099

          From https://www.macrumors.com/roundup/iphone-12/

          All these figures are in USD so my expectation that the cheapest 5.4 inch model will be above 1100 AUD RRP if the 649 USD rumour is true still stands (unless the AUD increases dramatically in value)

            @AussieDeals: Ouch that's a big difference between SE and 5.4 i12 pricing! Hope it's priced under 1000 here but I guess there's slim probability of that happening.
