    Chip Shortages, stubbornness, pride, whatever the reason is, a truly great company would eat the price so their consumers continue to like the company. Steve Jobs seemed to always fight the price hikes. Tim Cook, not so much.

    Apple executives are following the airline industry model. They are using supply cost increases as an excuse to jack up prices and when supply costs decrease, they will raise the prices even higher.

    The iPhone X is even more powerful than we thought, it's empowering Apple to charge more for their other products. A new era has definitely begun as Tim said.

    the increased costs will result in higher profits and bonus to the executives at the top. Not the actual workers that put the products together.

    Or grudgingly lower them slightly.

    Apple has real problems. No consideration at all for others. They know some people pre-order iPhones and they buy iPads at the same time. They want more money as usual.

    This is only a very small price increase and almost certainly due to shortages of the components driving up costs for everyone. This has been a growing problem for sometime.

    Please don't accuse Apple of being greedy. That is not the case at all.

    Apple love making good products, but occasionally they just like jacking up the price of existing ones. Who doesn't like money.

    Apple needs to get money to cover Tim Cook's recently received $89.2 million bonus in stock for the strong performance of the company's stock. It's up to us to make sure Timmy has enough $.

    It's the halo effect! Apple also just raised price of original iPhone by $25.

    Well that's terrible news. If I would have known that I would have bought it on the last sale. Now I will wait.
