    The price increase according to Apple is because of nand memory price increase.

    Apple negociates long term contracts that aren't affected by spot price hikes, Apple is likely getting discounts as the quantity used increases. I doubt seriously Apple is simply passing on NAND price increases - especially for the Apple Service price increases :)

    The apple subredit are circle-jerking claiming the A series matches an intel chip in performance by using Geekbench results lmao. They are comparing a 5W? ARM chip against the big boys lol. Hell the intel i7 45W bga would obliterate the A11 chip into pieces. I3 probably too destroys it lmao.

    Hell, even my BGA finds it hard to maintain turbo clocks for sustained periods and well below rated TDP 45W. I imagine iPhone CPU maxes out 2-3W.
    They could have introduced MSFT's continuum based phone that can handle full blown MS Office apps and Adobe PS and the price of 999$ would be justified. Otherwise its no use.

    The price didn't bother me. There IS a market for phones this expensive (says the guy using a Samsung flagship), even if not everybody in this forum is in that particular market.

    That said, the Cracker Barrel image made me laugh.
