Not really, because your accessories can be another $500. You can buy, directly from the Apple store
- a case for either $65 or $85
I think the case I already have will fit my iPhone 8 since it's only 0.2mm bigger than the 6S in each dimension.
- Air pods for $270
I already have them.
- the Belkin wireless charging pad @ $110 (Don't you want two or three? One for your desk & one next to the bed & maybe even one in the car?)
One is good enough for now. A conventional cable is fine for rare occasions when I have to charge at work, in the car or on an aircraft.
- Maybe a second USB-C charging cable?
- and now, for the real clincher: a 29W USB-C power adapter @ $85 because the one shipped in the box is not the fast charging version.
I don't need this because I charge overnight.
If you can use the same accessories for two or three generations of phone and you don't get carried away with feeling that you need to own all of them then it's not as expensive as you make out.
