Since Apple unveiled the iPhone 8 and iPhone X in September, people couldn’t stop talking about it. And top it off with the official arrival of the iPhone 8 in Malaysia last Friday, many fans (and haters) have been itching to get their hands on the new phones to see what the hype is all about.
With the focus zoomed in on the iPhone 8, you might have missed this small yet significant change which Apple had quietly made in the iPhone lineup.
Apparently, you can no longer find the 256GB iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
– the largest capacity for an iPhone – on Apple’s website
. The only options users have now are the 32GB and 128GB
According to Mashable
, Apple made the silent move on the same day the company announced the iPhone 8 on 12 September.
You don’t have to be a genius to figure out why Apple took this step. They’re just trying to divert interest and sales towards the newer and pricier iPhone 8 and iPhone X instead because that’s the only way you can get a 256GB iPhone.
Who wouldn’t want more storage, right? That’s the one thing we’re constantly chasing, whether it’s on our phones, laptops or personal computers.
So if you’re still looking for the 256GB iPhone because you just need more space for your photos, videos, apps, music and whatnot, at the time of writing, Machines Malaysia is still offering the 256GB iPhone 7 Plus
. However, this capacity is no longer available for the iPhone 7.
Or, you could just opt for the iPhone 8
, also available in 64GB.
Or the iPhone X
later this year, if you can afford that insane price.
In case you didn’t know, the iPhone X will set you back RM5,149 (64GB) and RM5,899 (256GB).
So, what do you think? Is it still worth getting another iPhone that will just keep getting more and more expensive? Or you’re finally willing to hop onto the Android ship?
The choice is yours.
