The greatest innovation by Apple in the past 5 years had been price increase. Amazes me to see how apple gets away with unreasonable price increase on low spec hardware every year.
Anonymous, 30 Nov 2018If people want to post their opinion they have the right to hear facts backNo, I responded to an unsubstantiated claim. And while internet comments aren't entitled/don't have a right to anything, an example of a greedier company is Philip Morris.
PM sells a product that its executive has known for decades to significantly harm its users - a fact they had covered up and outright lied about for almost as long - after chemically altering it to make it highly addictive.

geordie81, 27 Nov 2018it wont really hurt apple at all, i mean lets face it, if they get a 10% levy added due to the... moreWith every labour, component, tariff, tax, fine, regulatory change, ...etc. related cost increase on any company, the increase (usually plus a margin) ends up at the feet of the consumer.

BTW I'm sorry, is there a problem with people wanting to buy whatever they want with their own money?
Are you the shopping police/everyone's mommy?

Carol, 27 Nov 2018You are right, but something is not quite their. Lets take Nokia raign. They had no Factory in... moreYou seem to think phone design and manufacture at peak Nokia somehow compares to that of today. That's pretty naive.

Trumps want more factories open in USA, it is a good wish, but in reality, China owns World Manufactoring and they are the ones who dictate this negotiation. So Trump needs to think really hard if tarrifs slap to USA products really good idea take it head on and say it is nothing for consumers
Yay about time Americans learn to pay more.
You guys earn thousands and spend hundreds, unlike the rest of the world who earn thousands and spend in thousands
'Ultimately, the US President advised companies willing to avoid tariffs should “build factories in the United States”.'
This is the best thing he ever said. Creating localised jobs at fair wages instead of the sweatshops being relied on now (let's not pretend otherwise). Not that Apple would ever be so consumer friendly when it comes to cost.
great excuse for Apple to increase their products by at least 20%
anyway, iSheeps will welcome the increase...
