The most expensive iPhone in the world is bathed in 24-carat gold — 2022

It is always said that Apple products are expensive and if we take into account that the brand only manufactures high-end products, we can somehow agree, beyond the perception after each one about whether they are fair prices or not. However, we find that curiously it is not Apple that sells the most expensive iPhone in the world, since there is a well-known jewelry company that customizes the devices of the Californian brand with top quality metals and sells them at unaffordable prices for many. How and how much? We tell you.

An iPhone that almost triples its price

You may naively think that if you go to an Apple Store and get a 512 GB iPhone 12 Pro Max, you will be getting the most expensive iPhone in the world. The 1,609 euros that it costs do not exactly represent a low figure, but you will be very wrong if you go with that thought. This same device is officially marketed at a price that almost means paying for three models at Apple and it is the one sold by the London company Goldgenie , a renowned jewelry brand popular for the customization it makes of devices like these.

The device you can see in the video is plated with 24 carat gold and if you want to get hold of him you will have to pay a whopping €4,251 . But hey, it has advantages like free shipping (just missing) and it has the particularity of offering a lifetime guarantee. It is not the only one for sale for this price or with a different aesthetic from the official Apple one, since we can find it with platinum finishes, with pink colors and other decorations that make a clear difference with respect to the original model.

But, How else is it different from a regular iPhone? Well, in nothing more than its own and particular aesthetics. It is the same 512 GB iPhone 12 Pro Max that Apple currently markets, with the same A14 Bionic processor, triple camera and LiDAR sensor or thelatest iOS updates available. Of course, the packaging is another difference, since it comes in a careful leather case in which the protection of the device during transport is also guaranteed thanks to its padded interior and made to measure for the terminal.

There really are other customizations that could exceed the price of this device, but if we only take into account those that are already sold in this way, this is currently the most expensive. Obviously it does not have the focus on the general public, since it is not an affordable price for anyone. If you like jewelry products, you have plenty of money and you want to have the latest from the apple brand in telephony, you will be in luck with this product. In any other case, which is where most of us are, we have no choice but to observe with curiosity this type of sales that are made in this type of company.

As an added fact to this curiosity, the brand is not only currently selling iPhone 12 Pro Max models in 512 GB with these finishes, but it is also possible to choose other capacities and opt for other models such as the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 mini. They also have Apple Watch Series 6 with matching finishes and straps on their gold covers, as well as previous generations of iPhone.
