Re: Why is there a 16 GB iPhone Plus? Seriously...
The other manufacturers aren't selling their devices in anywhere near the same frequency or capacity that Apple is...could Apple make the device cheaper at the 16GB level? Sure...could Apple still make a profit (albeit a smaller one) by making the entry level version 32GB's? Sure they could! But why would they? They decimate the market with sales numbers each and every year, including the sales of the 16GB model. Why would Apple take a record setting product which yields incredible amounts of profit for them while also holding such high satisfaction ratings with the end user...and make it less profitable for themselves?
