Apple to Raise the Price of the iPhone 6 by $100?

Apple to Raise the Price of the iPhone 6 by $100?

Posted March 11, 2014 at 3:29pm by iClarified · 25653 views
Andy Hargreaves at Pacific Crest has upgraded Apple to 'outperform' with a price target of '$635' based on the belief that Apple will release a new 4.7-inch iPhone 6 that is priced $100 above current iPhone pricing.

SAI relays Hargreaves report:

Hargreaves says that Apple consumers are relatively rich, so $100 doesn't mean too much to them. He cites the failure of the iPhone 5C as evidence that Apple's customers don't mind spending an extra $100 for a better product.

Hargreaves doesn't believe that Apple will release two larger models of the iPhone; rather it will stick to just the 4.7-inch model.

Speaking about AAPL, he thinks that the stock could take off based on a new product.

"While many observers have chided Apple for a 'lack of innovation' over the last two years, we do not expect a linear path to commercially successful new product categories," says Hargreaves. "Instead, Apple is likely to choose its opportunities and timing extraordinarily carefully and release new products or services only when it feels it has the best chance to succeed, which does not mean it is not innovative, just that it is not dumb."

did you guys even think and stop what all your apps are going to LOOK like on a 4.7 inch screen? remember what happen when apple jumped to 4 inches from 3.5 ? remember the black lines that show because the apps arent correctly formated for the screen size? well how about 1 million apps that will have to be formated for apples new screen size how many apps will look like SHIT!! for months before the app creator updates there app and waits for a long approval from apple!!

Only the unnecessary apps from the App Store that is.

All you worshippers love to support a company that doesn't win, why? Because you have no lives defending the no brainers who do nothing but increase the damn phone size and still does it with no explanation whatsoever, how's that for Borea and their samscum fan club who like to gimmick like other desperate shits out there just like trolls ignoring the reality. Any herds like that have aimed at apple with commercials because they are jealous as much as you whiny smart ass wannabe lumps all of you are.

They should fix all the problems they have with iPhone 4, 4s, 5, 5s before thinking of raising prices on a new iPhone. They need to get there act together.

It's only $300 but that depends on how big it gets just like galaxy, but the 4s became free in 2 years after release and 5c is only $100 so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

5c failed because it was too fkn expensive!!!!!!! Not because the 5s was $100 more. Dk meals!'!!

It's prices at $100 in apple stores except for tmobile but how is that expensive, it's even cheaper being sold in stores like $50 or a little above/below. No joke. I will have you know though it has been sole more then the 5s failure or not.

$100 is not a lot. I easily make double that per hour at my job - and I just graduated from College. I don't see why there is a reason for people to complain.

And by working for extra hours, how can anyone disagree with you?

My comment all the way below may explain why that may not happen.

Europe is messed up with 24% Unethical tax. It's retarded that electronics here are more than in America it should be similar prices. Maybe $10 - 25USD difference. Even the gasoline here is a lot more than USA and other places. I will never understand this Europe.
lepaka - March 11, 2014 at 6:44pm
actually we are paying much more in Europe for the device, a 64GB cost 899€, today means $1247 !!! so hope they don't rise the European price.
K - March 11, 2014 at 6:45pm
Doubt it, 4s became free in 2 years after release. How can apple ever sell a small device over that much?

wow. That is some piss poor analysis. Did he ask his 10yr old daughter to come up with this?
Lolwut - March 11, 2014 at 5:20pm
He made the logic which my comment on the very bottom explains.
