Apple came up with its 'best iPhone to date' last year in November as it unveiled the iPhone X for its fans across the world. The smartphone is undoubtedly the best iPhone with the utmost features being offered on an Apple device till today but comes with an equally mind-boggling price tag. Yet, Apple has successfully posted a hefty increase in its sales and as per many reports, iPhone X has been dubbed as the most sold smartphone in the first quarter of 2018.

But in case you were wondering how long it will take for you to buy an iPhone X for yourself, a recent report might help you out. Taking the average salaries into consideration across the major cities around the world, a UBS report indicates how long a person will have to work to earn enough to buy an iPhone X. Here is a look at the stats from the report.

As per the report, a person in Zurich, the most affluent city in the list, will have to work for almost 5 days straight to buy the latest model of the Apple iPhone X, considering an 8-hour work shift. Concentrating the stats to the Indian cities, an average worker in New Delhi will have to work a whopping 804 hours, equivalent to a whole month, to buy the valuable device. The same shoots upwards for a worker in Mumbai, reaching as high as 918 work hours.
