Apple CEO Tim Cook Says, New iPhones Are Worth The Price
American tech giant Apple, recently launched a trio of iPhones during their annual event. And to everyone’s chagrin, the new iPhones carry a rather hefty price tag, where the most expensive model costs as much as $ 1,449, which is approximately Rs. 1,04,800. And recently, rankled by the extravagant prices, Xiaomi mocked the latest iPhones with product bundles in China that cost less than the new iPhone models.
However, it seems that Apple CEO Tim Cook doesn’t share the same sentiment. In a recent interview, Cook defended the prices hinting that the iPhones are well worth the money and said that they want to make an iPhone for everyone. He further stated that one iPhone replaces many other gadgets that one needs including a digital camera, video camera and music player. According to Cook, most people go for 12-month or 24-month installation deals, which makes it somewhere around $30 a month, about $1 a day.
Apart from the prices, Cook touched on other pressing issues including the US-China trade war. He said that Apple products are safe from the tariffs as their products are only assembled in China. Whereas, the parts come from various parts in the world. His discourse took a patriotic turn when he stated that Apple, that turned into a, could only be created in America. He also revealed that Apple has created 2 million jobs in the US and is investing another $350 billion.
