Apple Cuts iPhone XR Price

Alongside falling numbers in the supply chain, Apple is cutting the wholesale cost of the iPhone in Japan. By offering bigger subsidies, the hope must be that carriers will put more effort into selling the newer handset thanks to the larger margins. Benjamin Mayo reports :

Apple is set to lower prices of the iPhone XR in Japan by offering subsidies to Japanese carriers … The price drops are apparently going into effect as soon as next week. The $ 750 price is somewhat disguised in Japan due to bundled carrier contracts, but the device is seemingly being overshadowed by the still popular iPhone 8 in the region.

Welcome Back To The iPhone X

Coupled with the lower sales of the iPhone XS and XS Max, and a potential commitment to Samsung to purchase a certain number of OLED screens, Apple has increased production of the iPhone X ( reports The Wall Street Journal ), a handset that was effectively discontinued in Apple Stores with the launch of the 2018 family of handsets. Jon Porter looks at the details :

The move is allegedly due to an agreement made with Samsung to purchase a certain amount of OLED screens. Med dette årets OLED-udstyrede modeller som fejler ikke at sælge i de mængder som er nødvendige for at opfylde betingelserne i aftalen, antyder Apple at den sidste årens model for en løsning. Apple heeft de iPhone X niet meer verkocht als de XS voor het eerst werd gepubliceerd.

De iPhone X is ontworpen om te produceren dan de XS of XS Max, dankzij zijn leeftijd, wat betekent dat componenten en fabricageapparatuur goedkoper zijn the WSJ report. In the past, legacy models have been produced when there is enough demand for them in certain markets.

As part of Apple’s October launch event, Tim Cook and his team finally updated the Mac Mini. The base price has risen slightly to $ 800, but it retains a plethora of ports, hardware encoding in the T2 chip, but a weaker GPU. Marco Arment has taken a closer look as he reviews the 2018 edition of the Mini :

The point of the Mac Mini is to be as versatile as possible, addressing lots of diverse and edge-case needs that De andre Macs kan ikke med deres faste forskellige formfaktorer og mere opinionerede designs. The Mac Mini needs to be a utility product, not a design statement. (Although, like someone tired of space-gray everything, I have to admit that the Mini looks fantastic in its new color.)
