Apple phone is famous among people as the phone for the rich kids. It obviously has awesome features, deserving the high price tag it carries, but on the down side, it is not quite affordable for the ones in the middle income range. Apple is here to erase that reputation. It is rumored that Apple is about to introduce a phone which will cost as low as $99.
The new low cost phone will probably not be iPhone 5S as that should be reserved for the new features that were left out in the iPhone 4S. The iPhone 6 is not due to arrive until the upcoming year and so this low cost Apple iphone is probably going to be some mid iPhone in a much affordable range. This phone will be made of polycarbonate plastic instead of metal or glass, which reduces its manufacturing cost, hence enabling it to be sold at lower prices. Lower prices are good news as it will allow entry level consumers to get the feel of an Apple phone, without spending more than one can afford.
The reasons behind Apple trying to build a cheaper phone are that Android phone has been giving it quite a tough competition. Having a low cost Apple iPhone in the range close to a mid range Android phone is hoped to make the Apple’s market stronger, pulling some of Android users into its arena. And this plan may actually bear fruit as many users may want to use an Apple phone but are taken away by its high range. Thus an attempt to include all such users in the Apple list is surely an intelligent move.
Hence, this new eagerly awaited Apple product is expected to arrive in the latter half of 2013. Which series of iPhones it will belong to is not yet confirmed but is hoped that it may be the gift for the holidays; by and from the many.
