Apple Bangladesh - Apple iPhone Price in Bangladesh
Apple Inc. is an American multinational company and was founded in 1976 to sell the Apple I personal computer. It is headquartered in California that sells various electronics, online services, software and even solar energy panels. Among the three founders of Apple, Steve Jobs is the most known personality for his total contribution for Apple, his talent in technology, various innovation, and life story. Apple is known worldwide for their iPhones, iPads, iPods, and MacBooks. They are also known for their clean premium quality with no compromise and their unique individualistic nature. Apple is the only smartphone manufacturer in the world that produces smartphones with their own operating system (iOS) with a tremendous number of sales. In 2017, Apple had about 15% market share with iOS*(IDC). They sold 216.7 million iPhones in 2017 which made them the second most selling phone brands in the world. The developer of Android, Google sold just 3.9 million Pixel Phones in 2017. Samsung kept their first place by selling 316.4 million Android phones in 2017.
Apple iPhone Price Range
Apple has been producing only premium flagship smartphones with a very high price. In fact, iPhones are known as the most expensive smartphones in the world. Therefore, it became a symbol of class, status, and material abundance. There are dedicated customers of Apple iPhones around the world, but in developing countries, not a lot of people can afford it. Although, sometimes there are exceptions. The iPhone 5c was introduced for iPhone lovers with a relatively lower budget. The price of iPhone 5c started at $99. However, because of the prestigious nature of Apple, 5c couldn’t be of much success in Bangladesh among the vast majority of middle-class pupils. Another reason is that the specs were relatively low for the price. Brands like Symphony offered much better specs in this price range and therefore, were considered more people’s friendly.
Future of Apple iPhones
The ambition of Apple is pretty high and it gets higher every year. In 2017, they finished constructing “Apple Park,” their headquarter in California, USA. The cost of the construction was 5 billion USD. In the same year, they have released iPhone X. The price of iPhone X started from 1,30,990 Tk. in Bangladesh. But because of this enormous price scale, Apple lost a significant amount of sales around the globe comparing to the sales rise of previous years*(statista). Altogether, the global sales of smartphones went down in Q3 2017 for the first time since the birth of smartphones in 2004*(extremetech). In 2018, they kept releasing over the top priced iPhones which further led them to lose more of the market. So, it seemed that the ambition of Apple is way higher than what the reality could offer. So, we believe the future of Apple can be bright not only by introducing innovative features and extra-ordinary premium quality but also by playing an active role in improving global economy and people’s lives in the ground.
