Apple to Release a Low Cost 'iCloud' iPhone?

Posted August 11, 2011 at 7:25pm by iClarified · 24236 views
A new report by AppleNApps predicts that Apple's new low cost iPhone will actually be an iCloud iPhone.

Apple is said to be aiming for a $400 price tag on the new device which would make it free with a 2 year contract. The unit would have substantially less memory using iCloud to hold data instead.

To achieve the lower cost for the iCloud iPhone, Apple will use many of the same internal parts from the iPhone 4 since they're readily available in their supply chain already, and have gone down a bit in cost. When looking at iSuppli you can see how the same parts drop in price from the 3G to 3GS to 4. The iPhone 5 will include many new parts including processor, flash memory, and both cameras. The iCloud iPhone will be using the same internal parts from the iPhone 4, but will use a slightly different external design with an aluminum back panel similar to the iPad 2. Apple will go away from the relatively more expensive glass back panel. Also, the stainless steel band is speculated to be gone with simply a curved aluminum back, again like the iPad 2.


The site continues to say that the iCloud phone will share similarities with the MacBook Air; whereas, the iPhone 5 will share similarities with the MacBook Pro.
