Almost five months after the iPhone X launch, few people still pay for the outrageously priced device with a heavy heart. He said the iPhone X has seen "limited success" with prices starting at $999 and that might result in the company lowering the price by $100 to reinvigorate sales.
Probably Apple has realized that its latest flagship is a little too expensive for some which can lead to revisiting its pricing strategy in 2018. On a related note, RBC Capital Markets analyst Amit Daryanani believes that Apple will adjust its pricing accordingly when it reveals its next-gen iPhone lineup later this year.
Now priced at US$999 for the 5.8-inch iPhone X 64 GB, Daryanani has forecast that Apple will introduce the next-generation equivalent for US$100 less bringing its starting price down to US$899. The reality, though, is that the iPhone X hasn't exactly lived up to the hype, at least from a sales perspective. This will have a direct impact on the price of iPhone X 2018 models.
Dozens of iPhone owners are taking Apple Inc.to court over the company's disclosure that it slowed down old phones to preserve battery life, in what could become one of the biggest legal challenges to the smartphone since its 2007 debut. And now Apple is reportedly planning to do something about it. Thus, it is implied that he is expecting the demand for iPhone 11 to go up given its more affordable market value. A 6.1-inch iPhone X with LCD could be priced at $799 and the two OLED devices - 5.8 inch iPhone X2 and 6.5 inch iPhone X Plus is estimated at $899 and $999 respectively. Aside from the earlier release date, fans should also anticipate a cheaper pricing for the iPhone 11, according to one analyst. The analyst claimed that the OLED variants will be equipped with premium steel, while the LCD model is going to have aluminum edges.
