To all the people waiting for iPhone X to get a little price cut. Well,the sad news is, it’s not going to happen at all. Instead, the Cupertino ground tech mighty is planning to cut the production of iPhone X to zero. In simpler words, iPhone X is going to discontinue its manufacture before the launch of second generation.
Under any normal iPhone price cut scenario, customers wait for the next model to come so that the old one will get a discount price change. However, for the anniversary launched iPhone X, things will not be the same. There will be no discount which means, no waiting is going to be useful. Ming-Chi Kuo, popular analyst:
“iPhone X would hurt product brand value & lineup of 2H18 new models if it continues to sell at a lower price after 2H18 new models launch: Lowering iPhone X’s price after the 2H18 new models launch would be a negative to product brand value given 3D sensing and OLED display are features of the new high-price model. Additionally, to sell iPhone X at a lower price may have a negative impact on shipments of the new 6.1″ LCD iPhone in 2H18. Thus, we estimate iPhone X will reach end-of-life (EOL) around the middle of 2018.”
