Apple will reduce the prices of iPhone 12 components to offset the cost of 5G
According to a new research report by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple aims to reduce the price of iPhone 12 components to offset the rising cost of 5G technology and not increase retail prices for smartphones.
Adding full 5G support to new smartphones will increase data costs by $ 125-135, the analyst said. So the company is looking for ways to reduce costs for other components.
One such element is the battery board. Apple, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, is moving towards a simpler, more compact design with fewer levels. The hybrid board for the iPhone 12 will be 40-50% cheaper than the corresponding part of the iPhone 11 series.
In addition, the analyst claims that next year the company will change to an even cheaper board option in the iPhone 12s line. It will be 30-40% more accessible than the panel on the iPhone 12.
We expect that the presentation of the iPhone12 will take place in October of this year.
