During Apple’s
earning call held last week, Tim cook commented on iPhone X’s higher price
point mentioning that the company only charges price for the value consumer get.
In terms of
the way we price, we price to the sort of the value that we’re providing. We’re
not trying to charge the highest price we could get or anything like that.
We’re just trying to price it for what we’re delivering. And iPhone X has a lot
of great new technologies in there that are leading the industry, and it is a
fabulous product and we can’t wait for people to start getting it in their
hands.
Remember,
$357 is only the production cost of iPhone X. Apple also spends lots of money
on Research and Development that are not included with this cost.
