If there's one thing we can say about DigiTimes, it can be very popular and longing when it comes to reliability. That's why we should always take reports through the socket with a little salt, but that does not mean they should be ignored.
The latest one around iPhone X, shows that demand for Apple's high-end smartphones is lower than expected.
While this is contrary to what some analysts claim, which actually makes the record report is a claim that Apple will refuse lower demand by reducing the price of newly released devices. That means anyone who wants to choose iPhone X, iPhone 8, or iPhone 8 Plus potentially do it for a reasonably priced price.
According to the report, Apple plans to lower the price of its new iPhone to try and start a request. This happened after sales slowed in some of the major markets, including Taiwan, U.S., and Singapore. Although it never happened to Apple to reduce the price of the old generation iPhone in September, when a new release comes, the report shows that we can see the iPhone factory is currently experiencing price declines faster than that - in early 2018.
With three new iPhones expected to be announced by the end of 2018, we could potentially see iPhone product sequences once again. If Apple is indeed interested in increasing sales of iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus by reducing the price it will be very interesting to see if further reductions will occur in September as usual. We will also wonder whether the new iPhone 2018 will be launched at the same price point from their 2017 counterpart as well.
Time will tell, but for now, we will warn not to take the report as Gospel. If you are in the market for a new iPhone now, we definitely will not postpone purchases in case of a price drop.
