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 iPhone X is expected to be one of the most sought-after Apple devices in years. And with rumors that the device will be in low supply, getting your hands on one in 2017 won’t be an easy task.

If you don’t care about which color your iPhone X comes in though, there’s a clear winner when it comes color preference among Apple fans that plan to pre-order the iPhone X. Cult of Mac ran a poll yesterday to find out what people are planning to buy and were surprised by the results.

After today’s keynote, we writers here at Cult of Mac are more split than ever on which new iPhone truly deserves our money, so we’re curious which iPhone you plan to buy once pre-orders open up.
