The iPhone XS Max is set to be the biggest phone Apple’s ever made once it officially debuts this week. It’s also poised to be the most expensive iPhone you could ever buy, but that apparently isn’t going to deter fans from gobbling up stock as soon as it hits stores.

In a recent poll asking Cult of Mac readers which 2108 iPhone they plan to buy, the pricey iPhone XS Max had more interest than the other two new iPhones and it wasn’t even close.

The Lustworthy iPhone XS Max

Apple is set to reveal the full details of the iPhone XS Max at a keynote on September 12. The device will look almost exactly like the iPhone X, only with a larger 6.5-inch display. Other improvements will include better cameras, a speedy A12 processor, more RAM and new color options.

The price for the iPhone XS Max has been heavily debated by analysts. Some expect its starting price to be anywhere between $1,000 and $1,200. Despite the high price tag, customers seem eager to scoop it up. Even though our audience skews toward the more hardcore Apple fans, we still expect the iPhone XS Max to be the biggest seller of the new models.
