The prices of new iPhones have been the subject of many discussions for a long time. Everyone expected it to be expensive. It was difficult to determine what price would appear on the shelves. Especially since the X-shaped iPhone X, it seemed that set the bar very high and for a long time, it will be hard to find something more expensive.
The most expensive smartphone in history and great sales – only Apple can do it …
It would seem that Apple demanding the biggest variant of this year's iPhone at least $ 1099 shot itself in the knee. It turns out, however, that in Europe and in the world I live more and more and the amount of over 5000 zlotys for the phone is not unusual. As the first pre-sale results showed, the 256 GB variant (PLN 5729) sells the best. So we come to the beautiful conclusion that everything that has the Apple logo and comes from the company from Cupertino will always find a buyer, and best of all regardless of whether the price is rationally justified. https://www.gsmmaniak.pl/900106/apple-zarobki-iphone-xs-max-model-cena-pojemnosc-pamiec/
How much does the production of Xs Max cost?
Thanks to TechInsights, we learned the exact cost of producing one piece of the iPhone Xs Max. It is higher by nearly 50 US dollars compared to last year's iPhone X. Enough puzzles – the estimated cost of production is exactly 443 US dollars, which at today's dollar rate, gives us just over 1610 PLN . As you can see, to the level of 1249 dollars net for the 256 GB version ( about 4550 PLN ) is still very far. Obviously, one can say that the cost of the whole project, distribution, payment of people, electricity, machines and all indirect factors influencing the fact that we can pick up the phone at a store near us is high.Nevertheless, I am sure that the cost per one piece is so small that, looking at the current sales rate, Apple will once again record huge profits. Apple would not be a trillion dollar company if clean earnings on one iPhone were not high enough. Interestingly, the OLED display remained the most expensive element, which has already gained the reputation of being the best on the market. In the end, you have to pay for the quality, in this case it is 80.50 USD , and from this part the biggest competitor, ie Samsung, enjoys the most. After all, he produces OLED screens for Apple. https://www.gsmmaniak.pl/900384/iphone-xs-max-najlepszy-ekran/
Will the first problems affect your success?
Honestly, I doubt that the first problems reported by users in any way have affected the image of the latest proposals of Americans. Customers who have decided to buy an iPhone Xs, as well as Xs Max, and previously had an iPhone X, can be disappointed only in one area. Namely, the battery will supposedly promptly ask you to connect to the outlet. It's hard to say if the problem is massive, or it's just a matter of non-optimization, which will be improved in the next few updates. It is impossible not to say that Tim Cook knows how to create a sales hit , which, despite few changes to its predecessor, will find many buyers, even if it will be offered for amounts that at first glance seem to be totally unrealistic. source: TechInsights
