iPhone Pricing Matrix Fall 2018 vs Fall 2017

Above is the what looks like will be the pricing matrix for 2018 iPhones vs 2017 iPhone lineup.  

With intro pricing being $349 for the SE2, $449 for the 7, $549 for the 7+, $599 for the 8,  $699 for the 8+, $799 for the 9, $899 for the Xs and $999 for the Xs+ 
 
The SE2, 7 and 7+ would come in 32 GB and 128 GB versions.  The rest would be in 64 and 256 GB versions with a $100 adder for the 128 GB version and a $150 adder for the 256 GB versions.  
 
When you look at the new price matrix for 2018 - it make a lot more sense in fills in a gap that is in the current matrix between the 8+ and X pricing.    
 

Also from an inside source / person in the know - code named AC - The "Fall" event will be Wed Sep 12th, Preorders starting 12:01 AM Sep 14th and Launch / delivery of new iPhones starting on Sep 21st.

 

I talk more about the new iPhones in Ep 467 of Today in iOS.

Apple Fall event 2016 confirmed for Sept 7th

 

Checking with inside sources - code names - PC, FC and TC - I  was able to confirm that Apples fall event to announce the next Gen iPhones will be Wednesday Sept 7th at 10:00 AM PT.  Two new versions of the iPhone (4.7" and 5.5") will be announced along with other updated products.  The new iPhones will be available for pre-order at 12:01 AM PT on Saturday the 10th.  And iPhones will start being delivered (put in customers hands) on Friday the 16th.  

 

Sep 7th - Fall event

Sep 10th - Pre-orders

Sep 16th - Next Gen iPhones in customers Hands. 

 

The Sept 7th date makes a lot of sense - as it is also the first day of CTIA Super Mobility 2016.  This goes along with past Apple events timed perfectly to take the wind from the rest of the industries sails.  Much more info on this on Ep 400 of Today in iOS - going live later today.
