The larger version, the iPhone XS Max has a 6.5 inch display, making it Apple's biggest screen, the price starts at $1,099.

These are not cheap, so if you want one of these new toys, you can try selling your old iPhone, but you better act fast. After the announcement was made, resale value of the old iPhones dropped by as much as $50.
