Well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has shared new information about the next generation of Apple smartphones. The expert says that next year the iPhone may increase slightly.
The main reason for the increase in prices for the Apple smartphones will be the increased production costs. In particular, the implementation of support networks of the fifth generation can increase the cost 30-100 dollars depending on the model.
Ming-Chi Kuo believes that Apple will try to minimize the growth of prices or their costs by optimizing supply chains. Including, possibly, by reducing the initial lump-sum payment to the technical suppliers of recycled metal frame.
In the past, the analyst reported that next year Apple’s smartphones will receive the support of networks of the fifth generation. There is also the chance that Apple will change the appearance of the iPhone.
