    Yeah they’ll be $50 off. When have you known Apple to “heavily” discount anything

    Well, that's at least 6 more of them they have to sell now to make up for the one sale they have just lost.

    Is this supposed to be sarcasm?

    For a company who constantly preaches about 'helping humanity", and not being elitist, this is a very strange way of backing up their statements.

    Apple hardware has always had a premium price, however at the moment (and for some time now) it appears they are testing their customers and seeing how much they can get away with.

    From a business side the numbers must add up, they might have a slight decrease in number of sales but their profits will be up.

    I understand that as a company Apple must do all it can to maximize profit, but they should spare us their BS dribble about helping humanity, having low profit margins and just about everything else that comes out of Cook's mouth.

    This was a bad move.

    PS: I buy Apple products and will continue to do so, however I find it distasteful that they blatantly spew out BS expecting people to buy into it blindly.

    I'm glad I bought my 12.9 before they increased the price. I can use the money I saved and buy some premium beef for my dogs.

    The prices today reflect Apple testing the market, to see what it will bear. Their sales and profits will plummet eventually, the market can’t handle these extreme proces for long.

    7mths ago I believe I posted "somebody's gotta pay for the new HQ" and here is the money that will lol.

    Messed up. I'm curious if a lawsuit will occur and how Apple will explain this.

    I'm glad I bought mine on tax free weekend and with the education discount. Plus I got some free beats.

    If prices had been lowered you’d be spewing the same drivel.

    A lawsuit for raising the price of a product?

    The price doesn't change in the other area.
    Maybe you guys should put blame on President Trump devaluing the USD.

    Exactly WHAT shortages?

    No hurricanes, no earthquakes or other forces of nature affecting production in the world. The shortages is simply Apple buying too much in advance affecting the market.

    I call BS on shortages.
    I see nothing on Reuters nor Bloomberg stating of shortages today or this week nor this month.

    Well, you have to look back in time - pricing is set weeks or months ago for shipments occurring in the last few days, and the coming days & weeks.

    You also have to look at sources closer to the industry, such as EE Times...
    http://www.eetimes.com/document.asp?doc_id=1331838

    There's a significant price hike, and for a 256Gb device using 64Gb chips, and needing 4 of them, that amounts to an increase of some $20-25... the pricing on 64Gb devices is much more turbulent than for smaller devices...

    This is going to be a bad quarter for them. No one is going to buy an iPhone until November, and with no new computers on the horizon, income will be down. Unless, of course, they raise the price of some of their most popular items that are available...like the iPad Pro. Those smart number crunchers at Apple know what to do!
