Ming-Chi Kuo, analyst at KGI research has made a few predictions about Apples future products. According to his prediction, mentioned in new KGI research note, Apple is expected to release cheaper versions of the iMac and iPhone 5S during its developer conference WWDC next week. This will be in addition to the other announcements that are related to new software launches.
According to analyst Kuo, Apple will cut iMac production costs by improving panel lamination and casing yields. The low cost iMacs will help Apple compete with the PC companies in the market that offer hardware at lower price.
The other prediction is about cheaper iPhone 5S with 8GB memory. This comes in line with the recently launched iPhone 5C 8GB that is being sold in non-US markets to compete. The low end launches will help Apple compete with other companies that offer products at lower prices.
Well-connected Apple commentator Jim Dalrymple from The Loop has outrightly negated these predictions by saying “nope”.
