Renowned analyst Min-Chi Kuo shared new information about the next generation of Apple smartphones. The expert claims that the price of the iPhone may increase slightly next year.
The main reason for the increase in prices for Apple smartphones will be increased production costs. In particular, the introduction of support for fifth-generation networks can increase costs by $ 30-100, depending on the model.
Min-Chi Kuo believes that Apple will try to minimize price increases or its costs by optimizing its supply chain. This may include, perhaps, by reducing the initial one-time technical payment to suppliers of the recycled metal frame.
In the past, the analyst reported that next year all Apple smartphones will receive support for fifth-generation networks. There is also the possibility that Apple will change the look of the iPhone.
