We’ve already had a current leak concerning pricing of the iPhones, this one appears to contradict it. Relatively than the $699 price ticket, the brand new iPhone XC is alleged to start out at $849 for the bottom mannequin. It’s anticipated to come back in a bunch of colours (Crimson, White and Blue) which gained’t be out there for the remainder of the variants.
