Apple iPhone XS Max 512 GB to cost Rs 1.45 lakh: X things you can buy at that price

Apple has announced that in India the pricing of the iPhone XS Max will start at Rs 1,09,900.

Apple has dropped the new lineup of iPhones on us and they cost a ton. Should we really be surprised though? Apple has a habit of charging a massive premium for its brand name on the iPhone and that's understandable. However, when a consumer-centric smartphone starts at Rs 1 lakh, it would seem that toning down this thunderous pricing strategy might help Apple's dwindling sales in the Indian markets for the past couple of years.
