When Apple launched a new top productof-the-On Tuesday, the line iPhone is expected not only to provide features such as infrared facial recognition and wireless charging for the first time.
The company will also enter a new field in price: the latest phone will start at about $1,000, while the current lowest price for the top phone iPhone 7 Plus is $769.
"It's a whole new threshold," said Derby Ruth, senior vice president of Frank N, a technology consulting firm.The partner of Magid.I really think it will stop people.
From the launch of the iPhone ten years ago, Apple has been pricing it as a high-end product --This is a more sophisticated and refined alternative to many cheaper smartphones on the market.
But this time, the company is moving into the luxury sector.The price of this new phone will be as high as the company's entry price --MacBook Air laptop."They doubled their strategy: they put more energy into the high end ."Ruth said.
Apple declined to comment ahead of Tuesday's product announcement.(Steven Troughton on Saturday-Smith, the developer who combed the iOS 11 software, found some references, indicating that the new highThe terminal phone will be called the iPhone X.
Investors believe that Apple's price increase will bring higher profits, especially in mature markets such as the United States and Western Europe, and many buyers will upgrade from the old iphone.Over the past year, the company's stock has risen nearly 50% as it is expected to have built about 2017 models.
However, Apple's strategy is risky, especially in developing countries where smartphone sales are growing rapidly but whose market share is negligible compared to devices running Google's Android software.
In Brazil, for example, according to research firm Forrester, Apple devices will account for only 8% of the 0.125 billion active smartphone users this year.
High taxes, higher retail margins and failed attempts to make iPhones in Brazil have increased costs, all pushing up the price of the iPhone 6 syear-The old model, Casa Bahia, near rijoko papabana, is a shop that costs more than $1,000.At the end of August, the retailer sold Apple's most basic smartphone, the iPhone SE, for more than $600, while the Samsung Galaxy Mini, which runs Android, was only $136.

Still, wealthy Brazilians are salivating about the iPhone, many of whom have bought it while traveling abroad to avoid the country's high costs."There will always be users in Brazil who are interested in buying it," said Tina Lu, a senior analyst at Counterpoint Research.
China's acceptance of the $1,000 iPhone will be more important for Apple.Greater China, including Hong Kong and Taiwan, contributed $8 billion to Apple's revenue last quarter, but sales have been sluggish.
According to Counterpoint, Apple's market share in China has declined slightly over the past year.High-Chinese brands such as Huawei and Oppo have made progress on end phones, partly because they are less expensive than Apple.
The new iPhone is likely to reverse this trend.For a long time, the iPhone has surpassed any other technology product in China.If the new iPhone looks the same as beforeWill not be considered new by others.It often sells badly.
"If the look of the phone changes, I think people will be crazy about it because we haven't seen an iPhone with a similar look for a long time,'' he Peihuan, ShanghaiFinancial analyst.
Apple is also under pressure from the Chinese government.State-The running media agency has drawn attention to a feature that tracks where users visit most often and criticizes the company's after-sales servicesales policies.Government employees and state leadersOperating companies are trying to avoid using foreign technologies such as iPhones.
Still, Zhang Xiang, a mobile phone dealer and maintenance worker in Shanghai, said he still expects strong demand for the new iPhone."I think when people can afford it and want a high"Terminal phones with good features, they will still choose to buy the iPhone," he said .".
An important factor to offset the next iPhone's expected high price is the increasing popularity of global buyer financing options.In the US, most phone operators allow customers to split the cost of a new phone within two years, which will add less than $10 a month to what customers will pay on the iPhone 7 Plus.
"There is not much difference in the monthly fees you have to pay," said Brian Blau, a technical analyst at research firm Gartner.
