"We always try to keep our prices as low as possible," says Apple CEO Tim Cook

02 October 2019
Cook also addressed competition of TV+ with Netflix, accusations of monopoly of the App Store and more.

Sort by:

To be fair, Tim said they are keeping the price of their phones as low as possible. Doesn't mean Apple will start to sell dirt cheap phones. But the remark does sound ambiguous.

Iphone X was $1000 in 2017.
Most of high end android still did not reach this price in USA.

Joke of the year.
Pro is 29k ($400) pricier in India than USA.
11 is just 14k ($200) pricier, why is there that much difference.
They are just pricing as much as they want.
May be to touch 1Lakh($1500) priced mobile.
They are trying to keep prices low... LMAO

Shadocx, 03 Oct 2019The Galaxy Note 10+ is 1109,95 euros where I live and 1159,... moreOh, i see, you are quite a catch. Ever heard of doing business? Probably not. There are people that actually go to work everyday and are not payed this high (this is what the guy talks here, and there are many, that means, if apple want to sell more they need to lower the price to have more people buying) but you do not know what working is, most probably. Yo papa buys you the iphone... and ya call others broke? Sometimes i ask my self how can god endorse m'''s like you, really, is stunning.

LMAO I can't believe that I actually read this. Is the freaking most expensive brand in the smartphone world. What a cynical person!

Next time apple should send a better lier, this guy's lies are so bad it actually pockes your eyes when you read them.... What a sad story mister CeO.

Decryption of what he said: "We always try to keep our specs as low as possible, and our profits as high as possible, and our i-sheeps as loyal as possible!"

BS, you always try to maximize profits that's all.

So the only thing that interest you in a phone is the charging port and charging speed?

They are selling their 800 euros cheapest iPhone 11 in their official store with a 5W charger in 2019 and a joke of specifications for the price. The slow lightning port is still there to force people pay their accesories and licenses, etc.

The only thing i watch "low" are the hardware and features they offer for the price. Not the price precisely. They are well known by analysts due to the high margin of profits they have, the biggest in the industry... So what he say is a big lie, less if it's the lower price their whales and shareholders allow to maintain their new ferraris and goods.

[deleted post]Since when you have to be millionaire to buy an iPhone 11?
Bruh. If you change phone ever 2 years, it's no big deal.
It is that hard to save 35 euros/month? You must be wasting money some where else...

Shadocx, 03 Oct 2019Honestly, I give 0 f*ck about Fuschia OS, IDK why people ke... moreFuchsia OS is the next biggest thing since the invention of the wheel, it's so tectonic shift so massive that it will shake the traditional landscape of devices.

Image your favourite apps on all platforms with seamless sync , yes iOS is somewhat seamless but if you have Spotify on iOS with homepod for example it can it play apple music and nothing other than it, transferring messages and photos and sync pause play between 3 devices is not ecosystem.

With Fuchsia is aiming for total domination with seamless connection beyween devices such as PC,Tablet,phones,Watches,smart display,tv, refrigerator,Oven,speaker,Security cam anything you name it,heck even toilet bowl


So far nobody has accomplished such deep integration but Fuchsia is going for it and it will definitely achieve it with 3-5 years.

This should be alarming for Apple, unless they have built a next gen fuchsia rival.
