Tim Cook Thinks The Price For iPhone X Is Not Very High

With a price tag of $999, the iPhone X is the most expensive iPhone we have ever seen. So, how does Apple’s CEO Tim Cook interpret this high price? For the iPhone X, which is the most expensive iPhone ever produced, Tim Cook has commented on the price! According to Tim Cook, the price is quite normal.

iPhone X from Tim Cook’s Perspective

Tim Cook was the guest on ABC News in the US and answered the question via Twitter about the price of iPhone X: Isn’t the $999 iPhone X a little pricey for a lot of people? According to Tim Cook:

“Most people are now paying for phones over long periods of time. And so very few people will pay the price tag of the phone initially. Also most people actually trade in their current phone, and so that reduces the price further, and some carriers even throw in subsidies and discounts.”

Apparently, according to Tim Cook, the price of the iPhone X is not particularly expensive when it comes to specially designed campaigns and technology.

The price for the future of smartphones

In addition to the base $999 iPhone X, Apple is selling a 256GB version for $1,149. That makes the iPhone X the most expensive smartphone Apple has ever sold. As opposed to the analysis of many people, Apple obviously thinks that the iPhone X deserves the price as it is the “future” of smartphones.

Tim Cooks says, “When we look at it, the iPhone in particular has become so essential in our daily lives, people want it to do more and more, so we’ve built more and more technology in to be able to do it.”

At the end of the day, in case when the majority finds the iPhone X is overpriced, this approach will be reflected in underwhelming sales.

Feature of Facial Recognition in iPhone 8 Goes Beyond The Expectation

iPhone 8 has already become very popular thanks to the rumors before the launch of the new device. New information has been released about the innovations that will be introduced with the iPhone 8. How much is iPhone 8? What are the best features of iPhone 8? This time Apple seems to have worked hard for the iPhone 8 in terms of facial recognition features. The features that Apple will offer along with iPhone 8 continue to evolve as the HomePod firmware’s codes are reviewed. The last detail is about the iPhone 8 facial recognition features.

Powerful facial recognition

Developer Guilherme Rambo shared on the Twitter account what the iPhone 8 can do with face detection. Accordingly, iPhone 8 will be able to provide authorization for Apple Pay payments with face identification. Moreover, it is possible to record more than one face, such as in Touch ID Technology, and to access third party applications with this new layer of security.

Considering the Pearl code name that Apple uses for facial recognition in iPhone 8, the string “numerofAppsUsingPearl” in a line of code references indicates that third-party applications will also be able to access the facial recognition function, and that can take place of passwords. In this sense, the facial recognition was formed with the expectation that the Touch ID could take its place completely. In addition, it is foreseen that both front and rear cameras may have the face recognition feature.

The price of iPhone 8

From the Apple HomePod firmware software to the present, the iPhone 8 design, infrared-based face detection features, split status bar, touch screen wake-up and new SmartCamera functions and much more. One another thing that matters about the phone is the price of iPhone 8. So, how much will iPhone 8 be priced. As far as we know, it will be priced between $850 and $1,200 in the US.

Now Apple has yet to confirm any of these. So we can say that these are just assumptions. How exactly it will be implemented remains to be seen, but hopefully Apple will have something official for us soon.
