WHY THE CLAMOUR FOR iPHONE X. More people line up to pay over $1100 (over 400000 naira) to buy one iPhone X, the latest and most popular phone. See how iPhone has made Apple to become the richest company in the world

iPhone is a high-end smarthphone from Apple Inc, Cupertino, California, US.

It is used by many presidents, heads of states, ministers, senators, billionaires, students and many more who admire it and can also afford it.

Apple’s shares rose 3% on Friday, 1 June 2018 hitting a record high and giving the world’s most valuable publicly traded company a market capitalization of about $890 billion, close to a trillion.

Analysts suggest Apple could be the first ever company worth $1 trillion.

Apple was once a great computer company second only to Microsft but it had it rough sometime ago and the company ebbed dramatically.

However its product called iPhone alone has revamped the company’s fortunes tremendously.

The iphone is an innovative high end, high quality phone but it’s also expensive especially for the budget class.

Now why is it so expensive, and why do people like to get every new brand, the cost notwithstanding.

There are some reasons:

Pioneer entry, popularity

Apple does not, or at least, hardly use iPhone users information for ads or third party stuff.
