... moreThey are a business, and they set prices by what they think the market will bear; they don't require a justification. If it's too high, sales will suffer. If it's too low, potential profit will be forfeit.
What is the justification for the price of a soda? Cost is pennies a cup, why does it cost 100+ x that? What is the justification for the price of Samsung's ceramic S10? Welcome to capitalism.

Apple is a big business company equipped with R&D and marketing teams releasing their models yearly unlike other OEMs. Their 5G availability plan is just like how they removed the jack or provided the 2nd sim or the use of OLED screen or even the Type C port.
How much an iPhone with 5G capability and type C port will be priced? Will it boost their current market share?

And I hope your statemen... moreAt least in android people will have an option to buy the decent phone with all the latest feature at a lower price (e.g k20 pro or oneplus 7). Whereas in iPhone you will have the option to buy a 3 year old phone (iPhone 7 or iPhone 8) with the same price tag which would be outdated in terms of everything.

Most people aren't shooting lengthy 4K videos, they're taking simple photos and recording short videos. You can always use cloud/external storage or transfer your media files to your computer if you start to run out of space. Unless you download a lot of apps or porn then 64GB is still adequate.

Despite the benchmarks that the A13 will provide no IPhone will match the internet speed of a 5G handset on a 5G network, everybody who visits this site will know there is no software or hardware upgrade to a convert 4G handset into 5G, and 4G network speeds will not increase
Four points a 4G handset for most will be a two year contract so 2021 will be the earliest
Second point there won't be any significant upgrades so there won't be any real pressure to upgrade a 5G phone,
Third Japan 2020 Olympic Games will feature 5G services, the iPhone 12 release is after that.
Fourth 5G handset carry a premium price, whatever price the iPhone 11 is add $150 - $200 for the iPhone 12
Yes buying the iPhone 11 now won't factor, as the owner would have held there phone for 3 or 4 years
Apple are releasing a 4G phone in a 5G world, those who choose to wait will pay more in 2020, in 2020 even Apple 13 ,14, 15 won't have any significant features to upgrade to
Many countries have a 5G service

Observer, 10 Sep 2019I'm here to read hateful comments and to see people compare orange and apple.Exactly lol. People buy iPhones because of iOS, the brand, and the tight ecosystem. They don't care about specs like Android nerds do, and I'm one of them. If you can't grasp that by now then either something is wrong with you or you have an axe to grind with Apple. Get over it and stop worrying about the company and its users, it makes you look jealous and pathetic.
I live in the U.S. so I think Apple's prices are fair. They could've jacked up the prices here too but they didn't and that's a good thing. As for the rest of the world you're better off buying an Android smartphone lol. Or if you really want an iPhone because of iOS or whatever then you should get older model instead.
how do they justify the price hike for memory? the memory chips don't cost that much to make.
$30-40 would be enough profit (for apple) and cover cost per upgrade band, not the $$$ the charge.
mind you if people keep buying, they will keep doing it
Too expensive for me.
My S8 is still working fine and this is no reason to upgrade.
In india the price of base 64 GB iPhone 11 pro is 99'900, ($1410) and the price of iPhone 11 is 64'900($915), in this segment only brainless people will buy iphones in india, apple thinks 1$= ₹100 indian ruppe

For $2100(in my place) these OTB out dated LTE only mobile may not be a wise decision....there is nothing there demands anything more than $850
People WONT Be buying new Iphones because at relase date they where already outdated!! Why ? Because people including me want 5G already, want it now not in September 2020.
Its shoot in the foot Apple what you did. 5Gshould have been implemented this year.
