Apple is planning to unveil a 5G iPhone SE in March — but the big news could be a significant price drop – $199 – for the current model.
For years, the technology industry has been clamoring for a low-cost iPhone aimed at emerging markets.
A device priced at $200 could make inroads in regions like Africa, South America and parts of Asia that are currently Android strongholds.
…When Apple introduces a 5G version of the iPhone SE, which could come as soon as early March, the company has a great opportunity to make a change.
I suggest Apple continue to sell the older iPhone SE at a new, lower price—namely, $199.
It’s unclear if Apple will ever actually take this step, but there may be no better time than the release of the 5G iPhone SE next month.
MacDailyNews Take: If Apple drops the price of iPhone SE 2 to $199, many, many pallets of adult diapers will have to be delivered to the Samsungs, Xiaomis, OPPOs, Googles, etc. of the world posthaste.
That said, if iPhone SE 2 does stay on the market, it will most likely come with a $299 price tag. $279 and $249 are two other options; but the lower the price goes, the lower the odds it will happen.
