Analyst sees 2018 Apple iPhone Xs priced at $899 and up
by Alan Friedman / Mar 26, 2018, 4:06 PM
Today, RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani has come up with the pricing scheme that he believes Apple will employ for these three phones. Daryanani sees the iPhone 9 priced at $700+. This will be the lowest priced iPhone of 2018, not including the Apple iPhone SE 2 if such a phone is released. The iPhone Xs could start at $899, which is $100 bucks less than the price of the 64GB iPhone X. The iPhone Xs Plus, with its massive screen, could be priced at $999 according to the analyst.
Daryanani sees the cheaper iPhone 9 outselling the two iPhone Xs variants. As a result, RBC Capital is forecasting that the ASP (average selling price) of the iPhone will slip once the 2018 models are released. However, the news isn't all bad. As a result of the lower prices, the securities house sees Apple posting stronger unit growth starting with its first fiscal quarter of 2019 (October-December 2018).

RIP wallets for anyone interested. If you think the S9 and S9+ was expensive, then you're in for a real kicker with these.

"The iPhone Xs could start at $899, which is $100 bucks less than the price of the 64GB" That's good if its cheaper though,

is $1000 really that much for you if people like iphones or ios better than android its not like galaxy or note phones are any cheaper (difference is really negligible if youre already paying upwards of $850) and keep in mind iphones and galaxy or any other flagships costing over $850 have their own pros and cons - people tend to buy what's best suits them for $850+ devices and based in that segment - looks like apple does sell more in the ultra expensive market - just saying - you may not understand it, but majority of $850+ segment find value in iphones vs samsung offerings even if samsung comes $30 or even $80 cheaper

Price is subjective. Because the original iPhone was one of a kind at the time and Apple can go crazy price for several years, however she just quick found out competition get much tougher and cheaper, she can just slap price on anything she want anymore. The way I see it is that next year price of iPhone will drop again, as long as consumer not fall for Apple hype and copy out idea she claim she invented(not said she not invented anything). Hey, plan obsolescence got come into mind when innovation slow and competition increase.

But the iPhone 9 will be a pretty average $700, according to that analyst. And it will also have a high screen to body ratio. So there will be a choice for every budget.
