iPhones Are Losing In This Era And Will Continue To Do So Until They Accommodate Lower Income Consumers

Apple is not willing to meet the needs of poorer consumers.


Apple iPhone announced it will turn down the price of products iPhone XS and iPhone XR. According to Apple, the limited offer said that the trade-in iPhone XR starts at $449 and iPhone XS starts at $699, nearly half of original sales prices. If you have an iPhone that is not necessary to use, the trade-in value can bring at most more than $100 for a new version.

Apple stock price also decreased due to the unfavorable prospect of the financial report of the iPhone sales. iPhone has long been seen as the most important profit-making tool for Apple. Declining iPhone sales illustrated that the company now goes through a struggling time to make innovations like Steve Jobs. The lack of the new surprising function equipped into the iPhone alarmed the company's future.

In Steven Jobs' era, the innovation came from the man himself instead of a team and the entire company. Although Apple can hire the best technicians, engineers, sales guys, etc., the premise is that the company should earn enough money first. The money sources from the sales of the electronic products are correlated closely to the products themselves. And the products are related to the stock price which the investors keep observing based on the sales report.

Apple may not face the crisis for a short while. However, the long term risk is unavoidable. Other brands are implementing different strategies. Samsung and Huawei introduced various price levels for phones to satisfy more customers. The prices cover both affordable and less affordable groups of consumers.

Nevertheless, Apple is not willing to meet the needs of less affordable consumers and they insisted on sell higher priced iPhones, which convince the public that the prices of the iPhone will have the expectation to increase in the future.

It is suggested that the company can adjust the price accordingly. They are taking action, such as the trade-in, but it is far not enough.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire.

However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
