Apple Loop: New iPhone X Price Leaks, Cook Faces Security Surprise, Weak iPhone Sales Damaging Apple
As Apple CEO Tim Cook pushes ahead with plans to introduce OLED technology to more handsets and increase the screen size. The top-line iPhone X Plus with a 6.5 inch OLED screen could have an entry-level price of $1400. While some rumors have claimed the second generation iPhone X would drop in price to accommodate a larger iPhone X Plus, Kuo says this is not true. He claims the second gen iPhone X will again start at $1,000, the iPhone X Plus will be priced higher (likely $1,200-$1,350) while the once-cheap iPhone SE will see its iPhone X-inspired successor come in at more than an iPhone 8 starting from $700-$800. Forbes’ Gordon Kelly reports:Consequently, Apple’s discovery that many customers are starting to think twice about paying over $1,000 for the iPhone X couldn’t come at a worse time.
