Since entering Houqiaobusi era, Apple have taken place in many ways no small change . However, today we want to talk about change for consumers is not a good thing on .
Analyst Peter Miesk said that according to his understanding of the information display , Apple is negotiating with operators are able to increase the price of iPhone 6 is $ 100 . Although the initial response was ‘no’ , but if not this year, another ‘ change the world ‘ device available, prices are likely to get permission.
From the current situation, the new iPhone looks set to be the year’s most important flagship machine, maybe operators will eventually compromise that allows Apple iPhone price 6 upgrade.
But why Apple needs to discuss the issue on the iPhone price increases with carriers ? Misek did not give a clear explanation, but we suspect that maybe this and operator of long-term cooperation with Apple iPhone subsidies related.
Apple ‘s move to start this a little strange , because at this moment competitors are focused on reducing the price of the product, but Apple is doing exactly the opposite . Currently, the iPhone represented the high-end mobile phone market is almost saturated , while the low-end smartphone market is expanding, which is the growth rate is only for the iPhone digit business reasons .
According to previous rumors , Apple this year plans to launch two new mobile phones, a 4.7 – inch screen , a screen of 5.5 inches . 5.5 inches of the iPhone will be Apple’s first tablet phone , it will sell at a higher price . Comparison of Samsung ‘s tablet phone , 6-inch Galaxy Note 3 than the 5-inch Galaxy S5 expensive $ 100 .
On the other hand , a speech last year, Apple’s internal display , and now the world ‘s people are hoping to buy a cheaper price larger screen phones. This means that Apple should lower the price of their products, while expanding the size of the screen .
But Apple believes Android handset manufacturers to bring price competition pressure is not affecting them . Such as iPad, originally priced at $ 400 , but Apple think people are willing to spend $ 100 , the end result proved that they are correct.
Apple may feel that $ 100 price increase would not be a key factor in the success of large-screen iPhone , which will offset the $ 100 upgrade cost . But the reality is that for a company with $ 150 billion in cash , the prices of the phone seems to be in the $ 100 Apple greedy side – this company for some excessive pursuit of profit , it is easy to break the balance
