Apple Insider Reveals Next iPhones Will Have 5G But At Incredible Price Increase

It’s only one part, but it’s the priciest of all.

So, you think the price of an iPhone 11 Pro is too much for you? Do you think Apple is going too far with their premium pricing scheme? Well, get yourself ready because Apple Insider reveals that it’s about to get worse.

iPhone 11 and its other models were released this year, channeling only 4G speed whilst other companies were already running at 5G where it’s available. To compete, Apple is adding that to their 2020 models, but it’s not without a price increase.

The board is to be expanded 10% bigger to fit the parts, which means a 35% price increase on the motherboard. The motherboard is not everything, but it’s a major part of the phone, literally which the phone cannot work without. The 5G option will add about $400 to the already crazy price of the smartphone.

Kuo from Apple Insider also added that “metal frame and front and rear 2/2.5D glass are still used, but the metal frame surface will be changed to a similar design to the iPhone 4, replacing the current surface design.” He predicted that with this design overhaul, the shipment can increase to 85 million units in 2020.
