Apple Fans Not Really Interested in 2019 iPhones
Apple will take the wraps off new iPhones in September, but according to a recent survey, everybody seems to be waiting for the 5G model coming next year.
Piper Jaffray says it’s seeing what it describes as “strong interest” in the Apple customer base for a 5G iPhone. The only problem is that this particular model won’t arrive this year, but only in 2020.
The company says it conducted a survey to determine how many buyers would go for a 5G iPhone, and surprisingly, no less than 18 percent of the respondents said they are willing to pay around $1,200 to purchase such a model.
While this is clearly a new record for an iPhone, it shows that Apple customers are ready to spend even more on smartphones as long as they introduce new technologies, as it’s the case of 5G support. At this point, the most expensive iPhone is the XS Max with 512GB storage at $1,449.
