If there is not enough money
IPhones in Russia become cheaper reluctantly, but positive changes still occur. And thanks to these shifts, there are still iPhone models on the Russian market that can be called quite affordable. But very importantly, these models are definitely not obsolete.
First of all, we are talking about the iPhone SE. You can purchase a new version of a smartphone with 32 GB of memory at a reasonable price of 14,990 rubles. Also on sale is the officially restored version of the iPhone SE with 16 GB of memory – for 15 990 rubles and with 128 GB for 19 990 rubles. This is not a bug, the new iPhone is now really worth as much as the restored one.
The article will repeatedly mention the officially restored versions of the iPhone, since buying them at decently reduced prices is really beneficial now in Russia. Therefore, we will immediately explain what the "restored" iPhone means.
By such an iPhone is meant a smartphone that was delivered to Apple under warranty or an exchange program. Apple experts repair this iPhone, check its performance, change its case and battery, and then pack it in a new box and send it to stores at a reduced price. A fully-fledged Apple warranty acts on the restored or “How new” iPhone, so in fact, the purchase of such a smartphone is not at all associated with any risk.

Also, if you are tight on money, you should take a closer look at the iPhone 6s. Over the past year, the smartphone is very worthy cheaper. Now you can buy an iPhone 6s with 32 GB of memory for 24,990 rubles.
Will iPhone SE and iPhone 6s be up to date in 2019? There is nothing to worry about here. Both models have a powerful processor that allows them to remain fast running iOS 12 and in 2019. Smartphones do work smartly, for a long time without recharging (at least as long as they are relatively new) and allow you to take great pictures.
Both iPhone SE and iPhone 6s will definitely be updated to iOS 13, which will be released this September. It is possible that smartphones will get to iOS 14 and iOS 15. In other words, Apple’s official support for both smartphones is provided for many more years. You can not say, for example, about the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6, which are not in this article. We do not recommend buying these models in 2019.
Total. If you do not want to spend a lot of money on a smartphone, but you want a good iPhone, then feel free to buy an iPhone SE or iPhone 6s / 6s Plus. Yes, these models are far from the flagship models, but they quickly work on both iOS 12 and the new iOS 13 (tested themselves), Apple will be supported for several more years and have excellent cameras.
If there is more money
Unfortunately, in 2019, a large gap between prices for iPhones of various generations formed on the Russian market. In this regard, people who are willing to spend "a little" more money on the iPhone are severely limited in their choice.
In fact, the choice is only one – iPhone 7 with 32 GB of memory. The smartphone is sold at a price of 34,990 rubles. All newer iPhone models are much more expensive. For example, for the basic model of the iPhone 8 it is necessary to pay 39,990 rubles, and for the iPhone 7 Plus with the same 32 GB of memory – 38,990 rubles.
Is the iPhone 7 good for buying in 2019? More than! This is a smart smartphone, especially for those who are not enthusiastic about the fact that almost all modern smartphones are equipped with glass cases. The iPhone 7 case is made of durable aluminum, which is made in a pair of colors unique to the iPhone (we are talking about matt black and glossy black), the most powerful A10 Fusion processor, which will become obsolete in five years, an excellent single camera, protection from water and many other features.
Total. If you have the opportunity to take the iPhone from the middle price category, then it is worth taking the iPhone 7 without thinking. The smart device for the money which will please not one year.
If you need a large display
In the past few years, manufacturers have produced smartphones with all large displays. This is done in order to please consumers who are interested in these largest displays. Apple, which first resisted the trend, joined the movement and provides a choice of many iPhone models with large displays. Which one to choose depends on the capabilities of the wallet. The market situation is as follows:
5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus – 38,990 rubles. 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus – 44 990 rubles. 5.8-inch iPhone X – 63 990 rubles. 5.8-inch iPhone XS – 74 990 rubles. 6.1-inch iPhone XR – 54 990 rubles. 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max – 89 990 rubles.
Total. There are really a lot of iPhone models with large displays. You can choose based on your own financial capabilities.
If you do not want to charge the iPhone every day
Leaders in battery life among the iPhone are models with large displays. The record for work time without recharging – iPhone XR, the price of which starts from 54 990 rubles. By its autonomy, it is ahead of even the iPhone XS Max!
If you want to get an iPhone with a long battery life for much less money, then you should pay attention to the iPhone 7 Plus – 34,990 rubles.
Why not iPhone 8 Plus? The reason is its price, which is 44 990 rubles. You can add 10 thousand rubles and buy the iPhone XR, which has both modern design and increased battery life. For similar money (63 990 rubles) it will turn out to get an iPhone X!
Total. Any iPhone with a display of 5.5 inches and higher has an increased battery life, which is the greater, the newer the smartphone model. Evaluate your financial capabilities and select the desired model.
If you want a flagship
And here the situation is very complicated. It would seem that the flagship is the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max – take it and rejoice. However, the price of these models in Russia is more than impressive. And it is significantly higher than the cost of the iPhone X – last year's flagship Apple. The price difference could be called quite justified, if not for one “but” – the iPhone XS and iPhone X are too much alike!
Therefore, for many buyers it would be advisable to buy an iPhone X, the benefit of its price fell to 63 990 rubles. And more recently, the officially restored iPhone X for 58,990 rubles is being sold in Russia at all. For this money you will get a true flagship, even if it came out on paper in 2017.
On the other hand, if money is not a problem and you need the most modern Apple smartphone, then the choice is simple:
iPhone XS 64 GB – 74 990 rubles. iPhone XS 256 GB – 85 990 rubles. iPhone XS 512 GB – 96,490 rubles. iPhone XS Max 64 GB – 89 990 rubles. iPhone XS Max 256 GB – 93 990 rubles. iPhone XS Max 512 GB – 109 990 rubles.
Total. When choosing a flagship, much depends on the money available to buy an iPhone. iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max should be chosen if there is no problem with money. If it is desirable to save money, then you should get an iPhone X – it is only slightly worse than newer models in terms of characteristics, and the design is completely identical.
Which iPhone to buy mom, dad
Everything is simple here – iPhone SE. It fits well in your hand, pleases you in a pleasant pink color and does not hit your pocket much: 14,490 rubles for a new model. The smartphone can be found on sale less and less, therefore, as an option, you can consider the officially restored model for 15 990 rubles. Yes, it is more expensive. Here is a paradox now on the Russian market.
