I should've said apps may become less important, and if Apple offers a music subscription obviously individual songs become less important.

 

Apple could offer "entertainment packages" including apps, music, movies, etc. instead of individual purchases. For other services, artificial intelligence may prove to be the high-end personal assistant the wealthy have always had, but reimagined as simply being part of the iPhone's luxurious capabilities.

I think the analyst is missing the price spread between various GB capacities in each model in backing into the weighted average ASP reported by Apple, isn't he? Or did he already incorporate that in the prices shown in that simple table? Looks like he's only using the entry level price for each model.

Wow, I didn't know the retailers and suppliers just open their mouths when Wolf comes calling.

I for one keep my 4S only for its size even though it bars me from using 4G.. I do believe that Apple should keep making 3.5" devices, my hands and my pockets won't get any larger...

I always loved the design of iPhone 4/4S... the glass faces with that metal rim. It's beautiful even almost 4 years later.

iPhone 5/5S/5C, IMHO, has a ordinary design.

iPhone 4S is excellent!
And after two years use it's still in pristine state.

iPhone 4s is still quite a looker, no wonder people would like to have one. And it works good too, if not great

I am more than slightly sceptical about the calculated amounts.

 

At no point has the iPhone 4 been counted. It is claimed that the recent re-release of the iPhone 4 has help to double the installed base in India. Whilst Apple stopped supplying the 4 a couple of weeks ago, it is still available via partner carriers, typically costing $190 (un-subsidised).

 

Surely this would have had a massive impact on the average selling price?

Apple has since withdrawn it again. He doesn't mention that in his report, and I don't know why. Possibly the times didn't match.

 

oops... sorry, my bad. I posted before reading all of the replies.

Yes, they do talk to companies. Usually, it's off the record. But there is an advantage to these companies as well. They will likely get coverage they didn't get otherwise. Everything is tit for tat. We know how suppliers talk, for example. I've talked to some. Know the right people, and someone will always talk.

I don't think so. But, the 5/5s are far less breakable than the older series, and that's more important.
