We compared the price of contracts that come with an iPhone X – and the winner is R1,200 a year cheaper than the rest
When the iPhone X was released in South Africa in November, many complained about the hefty R20 000 price tag – making it the most expensive iPhone to date.
But four months since "the future of the iPhone" was released, South African cellular providers are offering the iPhone X at pretty competitive prices – with a commitment to a monthly contract.
Telkom, South Africa's newest cellular service provider, offers the cheapest iPhone X 64GB deal by far, at R899. For another R50, or R949, the phone comes with 10 GB music streaming through LIT_music, and that is still R50 cheaper than the closest competitor.
By contrast MyIstore, Apple's Premium Reseller in South Africa, offers the Iphone X 64Gb at R885 per month on credit – before it is connected to a cellphone network at all.
The iPhone X has a range of new features compared to older versions of the iPhone including wireless charging, unlocking the phone with your face and surreal camera capabilities.
