Apple could release lower cost iPhone SE 2 in 1H18

Apple could release lower cost iPhone SE 2 in 1H18

"Apple has cut margins on the iPhone X from 6.5 per cent to 4.5 per cent for large retailers like us, and if a customer pays by card, which is usually the case, the margin reduces to nearly 1.5-2 per cent", said Subhash Chandra, managing director at Sangeetha Mobile to ET.

Previous leaks have suggested a release in the third three months of 2018, perhaps matching the March 2018 launch for the iPhone SE.

"Apple gives the least margins..."

In contrast to this, Chinese smartphone maker, Xiaomi and Korean smartphone giant Samsung pay twice the retail amount Apple offers.

Apple India has cut off the sellers profit margin by 30 percent, now sellers will get 4.5 percent instead of 6.5 percent.

While some retail chains have stopped stocking iPhone Xs across their stores in India, those in the unorganised trade are also complaining about Apple's move to cut margins when supply is already low. (This is one of the reasons why the smartphone resellers recommend Oppo and Vivo smartphones). Earlier this year, Apple shuffled the storage SKUs a bit, but the smartphone remains largely the same as when it was introduced over a year. So much so, that some are considering to pull down the pricey iPhone X off store shelves.

Previous reports had forecasted that a low supply of iPhone X units would be noticed after 3 November.

American tech giant Apple has reduced retail margins on the iPhone X by almost 30 percent after large format chain owners and small-scale retailers claimed that the company makes profit from a massive margin but does not want its retail partners to benefit, reported the Economic Times. And, looking ahead, the firm expects Apple to grab an even higher percentage thanks to the increased cost of the X, which starts at $999.
