Currently, Apple most expensive iPhone cost around $969 for iPhone 7 Plus 256GB. However analysts Jankowski, said in her note that Apple is going to release it’s 10th Anniversary iPhone which will include new hardware that we have never seen in iPhone yet as OLED Display, Wireless Charging, a new front-facing camera which will recognize your face with 3D facial recognition technology, new AR/VR capabilities to Siri,more faster processor, more RAM, better Camera System, improved waterproofing and far more things which will increase the cost of iPhone, so $1000 price tag seems awful but Apple’s current-gen. iPhone cost more with such lower Display and other things in comparison with the upcoming iPhone.
So we can say this part justifies that Apple is right about its price increment. In the market of smartphones, phones with the larger display are already in demand and people are linking this larger display phone while it is predicted that in FY 18/19 larger form factor smartphone surpasses small or lower display version of all the phones.
Apple has to make certain decisions before increasing cost as there is a possibility that the jump in $100-200 will affect the Apple’s iPhone revenue. If other smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 are compared with iPhone 8, these devices also have a better display, more battery, better design, Wireless charging and much more at a lower cost than the expected price of upcoming iPhone 8 and much more. So let’s see whether this $1000 for base model Gamble will help Apple to gain market share or not. Jankowski predicts Apple will sell as many as 243 million iPhone units through the 2018 fiscal year, the iPhone’s ASP (Average iPhone Selling Price) could climb to as much as $763 per unit. While recent ASP of Apple is $675 which made Apple revenue to cross $300 Billion per year.
