Level 7
iPhones are probably more expensive than their Android equivalents because a) You pay cash for the iOS operating system whereas Android is funded by advertising, and b) Apple provides after sales support (unlike Google) and strictly controls the App Store.

For these reasons I don’t mind paying a bit more for an iPhone. But at the same time, I’m not prepared to pay THAT much more. The discontinued iPhone SE was priced about right for me- I wouldn’t pay any more.

The new iPad is far more reasonably priced. Surely the cost of manufacturing this isn’t much different than the cost of manufacturing an iPhone?

Apple seem to make lots of money so some people must be buying their phones. But they are missing a potential market in the likes of me.
