After several years of introducing new iPhone in September, Apple was forced to postpone the launch of its new smartphones for a few weeks. This means that the new models will only arrive in October, and may be more expensive than expected.
The first rumors were that the iPhone 12 (base model) this year could start at 649 dollars (50 dollars below the price of its predecessor). But the latest information says that this will not be the case.
iPhone 12 should keep the price at $ 699
A rumor on the social network Weibo says that it would be impossible for Apple to put 5G on the new iPhone and still lower its price. And, therefore, this should remain at 699 dollars in the United States (829 euros in UK
As has already done with the Apple Watch Series 6, several rumors indicate that Apple will also not put the 20W charger in the box of the new iPhone. In addition, headsets should also say goodbye to this “package”.
The most logical thing would be that this omission of accessories would help lower the price of the equipment. But it seems that this will not be felt by the buyer, who will have to pay the same as the previous year for the equipment.
It therefore seems less and less likely that we will have a cheaper iPhone 12 than its predecessor. But for an OLED and compatibility with 5G, the maintenance of the values can be accepted.
The launch of these new smartphones is scheduled for the month of October. For now, Apple introduced the new Apple Watch and a new iPad and iPad Air.
