The iPhone X is priced at $1,000 which is the first time a mainstream phone has an entry-level price with four-digits in it.
This led to weeks of media pundits explaining to us that $1,000 is a major milestone in pricing and that phone users will be divided into haves and have nots. Other articles explained what a big deal this extra digit is and how it changes everything and other alarmist headlines and story angles which seemed to try to tie into a theme of income inequality.
It’s not surprising actually as every story now seems to be divided along political lines.
Here is what no other outlet besides us explained to you.
People who can afford an $800 phone can generally afford a $1,000 phone. This is especially true as via financing, the price difference will be about $3-$4 per month to upgrade from an iPhone 8 Plus to an iPhone X.
We explained this quite clearly a few days ago and now, as the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus have been released, the lines outside Apple stores aren’t what people were expecting. Reporters who for some reason did not read our post and were subsequently uninformed, said customers were “missing.”
Of course our readers were better informed than most.
People are gravitating toward the iPhone X not only because it is the best phone Apple makes but because it has a screen larger than the iPhone 8 Plus in the form factor of the iPhone 8. All this for the price of a latte each month.
No matter which model of the 8 you would want to purchase, the iPhone X can be easily justified. This is why the sales of the iPhone X will be epic.
