One of the issues many had with the iPhone X wasn’t so much its design or hardware, but rather its price where the base model was priced starting at $1,000. This led to reports that the phone was not selling as well as Apple would have liked, but could Apple be remedying that “problem” this year?
Some reports have claimed that Apple could drop the price and this is something that a Morgan Stanley analyst seems to believe as well. In a report from Market Watch, Katy Huberty from Morgan Stanley has predicted how much Apple could price their iPhones this year, and if they are accurate it could be good news for would-be customers.
According to Huberty, she claims that the 5.8-inch iPhone X could be priced anywhere between $800-$900, a good $100-$200 cheaper than last year’s model. She also predicts that the rumored larger 6.5-inch model could be priced starting at $999 which was the price of last year’s base model. Last but not least, she predicts that the rumored 6.1-inch LCD model could be priced at $699.
There have been reports claiming that the LCD model could actually make up the bulk of iPhone sales, and assuming the $699 price tag is true, it’s not hard to imagine why. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but we’ll have to wait until later this year before we get the official information.
