Sorry, What?! “Cheaper” 2018 iPhone Could Cost $849
The closer we get to the official launch date of the 2018 iPhones, the more expensive the lower-cost model gets.
A new investor note published by Goldman Sachs indicates that the configuration supposed to hit the shelves at a lower price may end up costing no less than $849.
While few expected an iPhone to be truly affordable given Apple’s strategy regarding its premium products, an $849 price tag means the other two iPhones launching this year could be substantially more expensive.
In other words, the iPhone X successor wouldn’t get more affordable, as some people suggested earlier this year, but retain the price tag of the original model. This means the new iPhone X (possibly called iPhone Xs) could be priced from $999 in the United States, while an upgraded version with more storage may get well beyond the $1,000 milestone.
