In the past few years, we’ve seen the rise of Apple’s smartphone business as the company tries to catch up to Samsung’s massive dominance of the smartphone market.
The Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone X, which launched last year, were both released in the US in the same year, which has allowed Apple to offer cheaper and more capable devices for a longer period of time than Samsung could.
However, Apple’s iPhone X has struggled to catch Samsung’s pace.
Apple’s device only sells for $999 US, which makes it less than $1,000 cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus or Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
Meanwhile, Samsung’s latest flagship device, the Galaxy S9, sells for a mere $499 US.
While both companies’ flagship devices are priced significantly lower than their predecessors, Apple has managed to keep its margins high and keep the iPhone price at a reasonable level for the first half of the year.
In addition, the iPhone’s margins are growing as more customers purchase Apple products, which have helped the company boost its share of the market.
Apple’s iPhone’s price drops in AprilThe Apple iPhone 11s is now cheaper than Samsung’s Galaxy S11 and Galaxy S10, which both launched in April.
However, the S11 is the first Apple device to sell for less than the iPhone 10, and is the cheapest iPhone on the market at the moment.
The iPhone 11 is currently selling for $100 less than its predecessor, and will soon be priced below $100.
While the iPhone 11 and 11 Plus are only slightly cheaper than Apple’s flagship device the iPhone 8, they’re still substantially cheaper than competitors like Samsung’s newest flagship devices like the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Note 10.
For example, Samsung sells the Galaxy 10 for $549 US, the Note 9 for $649 US, and the Note 10 for about $749 US.
