Apple iPhone 12 Price Revealed And We're not Happy About it

The Apple iPhone 12 has been in the round of rumors for about 10 months now and most of the news suggested the price to be lower than the Apple iPhone 11. Recently, an Apple analyst  Jeff Pu has revealed that the pricing of the base model of the Apple iPhone 12 would not be cheaper but instead be more expensive by $50 as compared to its predecessor. The base model is the 5.4 inches model and the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max could each come with price tag of $899 and $1099 which is just a huge shocker for most Apple fans who were waiting to upgrade their phones. Here's list of upgragdes you can expect in the iPhone 12.

Latest Apple iPhone 12 leaks: 120Hz ProMotion, 5G, larger ...

The possible reason for this increase in the price could very well be the many logistical challenges the COVID19 situation has posed , especially for Apple which is heavily dependent on multiple third party vendors for their parts. Jeff Pu further suggests that the Apple fans would most likely see past the price and purchase it anyway owing to the radical change in the design compared to its previous 2 generations of iPhone starting from iPhone X. This would imply that the demand wouldn't be as affected as expected. From a logical point of view, a person willing to shed $700 for the phone wouldn't actually mind shelling a few more bucks for the same if he/she feels the product to be worthy. And as Apple products, they demand the "worthiness" by their sheer power of the branding.

The silver lining to this news is that the recently emerged leaks suggesting Apple would withhold charger and Apple Airpods with the iPhone 12 series, may not be well true. Analyst Jeff Pu suggests that the iPhone 12 would pack the 2 and could maintain the price tag of $749. For most people in Asian markets, the $50 could however be the tipping point and discourage the dreams of many who thought of owning an "iPhone" . Well, let's hope there a some sort of schemes and discounts to counteract this price which could attract more crowd and hopefully Apple gains back its lost popularity.

Don't think about Buying Tablet in 2020! They are going to be Dead!

Remember the time when the "mobile" phones were not "smart" yet and had this really compact form factor with durability such that they can only be destroyed by some natural calamity ? Yep, those times were not far from today ..just a decade ago and we didn't have to think about the phone falling off a cliff, or catching fire or trampled under a car or drowned into a sea! Then there was this highly delicate and expensive loner phone called the "iPhone" which required such extreme care, for you wouldn't be able to afford its maintenance! This phone was one of the first ones to start a trend of increasing the display size over the year and that led to hilarious memes as below Being mocked by their competition only strengthened their move and Apple went onto release the iPhone 11 Pro Max or Max Pro (whatever!) which was 6.5 inch long and was close enough to the prediction in the memes. This time it wasn't getting mocked but was

How to Pair Huawei Watch GT2 with Any Headphones within 1 min - the Perfect Hack

The Smartwatch and wearables industry has seen the biggest spike in 2019-2020 time frame. Starting off with Apple Airpods to may other brands trying to mimic the design and provide low cost alternatives the users have graciously welcomed each and every product in the line. There is a fan base for the neckband type, another base for the "TWS" (Truly Wireless) Earbuds and there's altogether separate base for the Wireless Headphones category. Then we saw an upsurge in the health monitoring wearable devices which was popularized by Fitbit and then in the last couple of years by Apple and Xiaomi. The current market has many players and there's no clear winner in terms of market share for the smartwatches / health monitoring wearables. Huawei has somehow missed the train and joined in late for the party. But as they say in Hindi - " Der aaye Durust Aaye .. "  which means - Came in Later But in a mint condition .. Huawei launched its first smartwatch the

Sony can well be termed as the "Lazarus"  for coming back from the dead - quite literally. It was standing against all the odds with likes of Samsung, Apple, One Plus in Premium and Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, Huawei in the Mid Segments, Sony had no where to land and with this particular model they have reaffirmed their faith in their Premium segment and its definitely Working !
