If Apple Wants to Boost their iPhone Upgrade Program, the iPhone Edition is the Perfect Opportunity

I brought up the iPhone Upgrade Program a couple of weeks ago, asking whether it is time for Apple to unveil a version for the Apple Watch.

Samsung and the iPhone Edition Price- A Different Take

I came close to writing what would have been a “me too” article yesterday on the report by KGI covering Samsung’s dominance of the OLED display market and the resulting higher iPhone display prices. I even started typing before I ultimately decided to delete it.

Also, the fact that the bigger phone also comes with a bigger battery has meant I haven’t needed a Mophie battery case for the last three years. After my time as a Plus user, I am completely sold on the concept of the large-screen phone.

Well, the new iPhone has to be called something, right? Late this week, the latest iPhone detail to leak was the naming scheme of the new devices. In a sea of iPhone news that hasn’t been all that surprising, word that the iPhone 8 and iPhone Plus would be the “typical” upgraded devices definitely was. The fact that the device we all expected to be the iPhone 8 could be called the iPhone Edition was an even bigger one.
