Apple is Releasing an iPhone that is Actually Affordable On Release
You heard that right, Apple is planning to release its cheapest phone ever. With the latest iPhones increasing by huge amounts of money each year it’s no surprise that people are starting to back off purchasing new handsets each release. This means that Apple earns less and less each year as the price continues to rise.
This trend has to stop before it gets out of control and nobody decides to purchase the new iPhones anymore or any Apple product that sells for a really high amount of money. So the new phone is said to be the successor to the iPhone SE which one of the most successful iPhones in recent memory, it’s most likely going to be called the iPhone SE 2 and will come with some pretty big changes to the design and functions.
The leakers have given a rough estimate on the price and that price is $399 on launch that means that this will be the most affordable new iPhone in a really long time if the leaks are actually correct. The price would be around £399-£429 in the UK which is half as much as the last iPhones price on release which was the iPhone 11.
The iPhone SE 2 will come in silver, space grey and the extremely popular crimson red that was once exclusive to the iPhone SE. It will also feature the A13 chip which is a really powerful chip that should increase the performance and response time of the new iPhone SE2.
We also have some facts about the inflation of the iPhones each year
- iPhone 5S (2013) – £549 / £618 (inflation)
- iPhone 6 (2014) – £539 / £593 (inflation)
- iPhone 6S (2015) – £539 / £587 (inflation)
- iPhone 7 (2016) – £599 / £641 (inflation)
- iPhone 8 (2017) – £699 / £722 (inflation)
- iPhone X (2017)– £999 / £1,032 (inflation)
- iPhone XS (2018) – £999 / £1,017 (inflation)
“Our team just finished an Asia tour, and we strongly believe Apple has a road map that will include four smartphones out in 2020 – with the lower-end being the next version of the SE,” the Wedbush Securities said. They basically confirmed that the iPhone SE2 was actually in development based on their tour.
If the price inflation continues to grow then we could be looking at the iPhone X2 or iPhone 20 costing about £2000 if not even more. This had to stop at some point and we think Apple has realised that they will eventually get to a position where they will really struggle to sell iPhones which leads to a drop in revenue and ultimately cause Apple to miss their targets each year. The iPhones themselves haven’t changed a huge amount over the years so they can’t really justify a massive increase of price year after year especially until we get some brand new features.
