This week, if your feed looks anything like mine, it has probably been awash with news of Apple‘s new iPhones. iPhone launches are always exciting (I mean, if you’re into incremental updates, largely similar designs and Apple playing catch up), so it’s not surprising that everyone wants a piece of your attention.
Amidst all that coverage, there is one big question that still looms overhead: How much will it cost in Malaysia? How much of my hard earned, ever depreciating Ringgits will I have to drop to get my hands on the latest and greatest from Apple?
Well, we were wondering too so we did the one thing I got into writing to escape from — math. We looked at the past pricing trends, compared them with our neighbours down south and cross referenced them with the math our colleagues did over at TheSkop. And by “we did the math” I mean Alex did the math, I just stood next to him and pursed my lips.

Finally, Apple has made some significant progress when it comes to charging their newest iPhone. To embrace wireless technology fully, the iPhone 8 and iPhone X now support wireless charging. That made a huge impact on the aesthetics as both iPhone models use glass for the back instead of metal.
Another key feature which didn’t get enough mention is Fast Charging. Yes, you can finally charge faster on a cable.
Before you get all excited, there’s one thing that would put you off, especially if you’re going to spend more than RM5,000 on a new phone.
The iPhone X (pronounced as iPhone 10) is most anticipated iPhone by far. With the manufacturers being obsessed with bezel-less phones with an all-screen display, Apple has finally responded with a futuristic phone of its own.
While the iPhone 8 uses the same traditional design for 4 years in a row, the iPhone X marks their biggest reinvention in 10 years.
