Prices of Apple’s iPhone would Increase: Insider Reveals
Apple’s approach has upgraded the iPhone 11 to produce state-of-the-art phones at a low cost. This seems to change. In a new report seen by AppleInsider, the well-acclaimed Apple secretary, Ming-Chi Kuo, revealed that Apple’s willingness to equip each iPhone with 5G in 2020 will lead to a sharp rise in prices.
AppleInsider explained: Kuo considers that the area of the key logic board of the iPhone 5G must increase by about 11% in 2020 to accommodate new technologies. The increase in part will bring costs – the manufacture of motherboards and some new technologies will force the cost of manufacturing the component has been increased by 35%. According to Kuo, the motherboard is one of the most expensive works on the iPhone, and only the OLED display and the A-series processor are more expensive. As AppleInsider pointed out: “Currently, the 5G option in transport phones has increased the price of already expensive flagship phones (such as the Galaxy S10) by about $450.” Despite Apple’s unparalleled economic size, the company’s profit margins are exceptional, which means that the decision to equip each new iPhone with 5G will be difficult. I suspect that Apple will be able to reduce the current $450 premium, but it seems that iPhone fans will inevitably have to bear the risk of adding hundreds of dollars to their next-generation phones. This is a pill that is difficult to swallow because the leak indicates that Apple’s 2020 iPhone plan is the most ambitious plan in the history of the iPhone.
Perhaps the most troublesome is the return of Touch ID, but with new screen sizes, stunning 120Hz ProMotion displays, remote 3D cameras and the long-awaited switch to USB-C. Of course, all the coveted technologies have problems, and that is not cheap. Apple is known for increasing the price of the iPhone while still maintaining a large number of sales, but its 2020 iPhone may only push customers to the limit.
