    Welcome to iMore! That's a matter of opinion. Millions of users and I would probably agree that you get what they pay for. Hence, the iPhone is the best selling smartphone in the world.

    Apple, like any other for-profit entity is in business to provide products and service at a profit. Even at your typical garage sale, the seller is trying to sell stuff at a profit. Every seller wants to bring in more than what was spent to create the product he or she is selling.

    Welcome to iMore!

    If they were over-priced, nobody would buy them (or at least not as many). They're priced right for what you get

    I agree with everything that was said. It's not just Apple products that's overpriced. It's my opinion that everything is overpriced. Profit is one thing, but extreme profit is another. The world has gone plum mad with profit gain...1, 2, 300% profit makes me cringe, but that's the world we live in today.

    I will say I believe the new MacBook line to be over priced. But aside from that, you get what you pay for with Apple. Premium products come at a premium price.

    Being at the height of Technology you need to invest a lot of money and the end product is going to be costly. That said the price of the iPhone is not out of reach to the average citizen
