Explain.No, it is not ignorance, it is plain fact there model isn't sustainable long term,
Okay, but you're not taking into account customer loyalty. There are some people who will only buy Apple, Samsung, HTC, Blackberry, or Windows mobile, etcetera. Saturation won't have any effect on that.high market is getting saturated.
You're assuming that 7 billion people own a smartphone when that is not the case. You're also assuming that all of those people will want an iPhone, and that, too, is not the case.There are over 7 billion people in the world, only a little over a 1 billion have access to smart phones, you have to make a device for the next billion or else you are going be waiting for the person who already has the latest and greatest to go out and buy again soon.
Just because they can does not mean they should.It works now, I think in maybe 5 years they will have to adjust. And at the same time, of course cheaper phones equal smaller profit margins but what company can better take that risk than Apple?
OkayI think your argument stems from and quite a few arguments stem from that you are worried about the brand getting diluted which is just what you think people view your electronics as and believe me no one will care less.
Some people do not want to accept that Apple products are considered "high end", "top quality", etcetera. Whether they like it or not, that image has served and continues to serve Apple well. It is one of the things that separate them from its competitors. That's a good thing. Apple is one of the most profitable companies on the planet and has been for a while now. Some even claim that Apple has "too much money", yet, still offer suggestions on how it can "maximize" it profits by offering low end devices. Apple's target market is intact and increasing as-is.If you have high end, you have high end iPhones to enjoy for those who want the cheaper iOS experience they can have it. Every other OS does this, yet all of sudden it hurts Apple because, reasons? Weird.
