Apple "Apple's new iOS 7, which the company unveiled last week at its Worldwide Developer Conference, says a lot about the future of mobile devices because Apple owns the future of mobile devices." If you're an Apple fanatic, you're going to love this article. If you're not an Apple fanatic, you'll be shaking your head in disbelief that the once great AppleInsider runs stuff like this these days. Hey, there's always MacRumors - the last great bastion of proper Apple rumour reporting.

You are making good points!

But many people can already afford an iPhone. If you really really want an iPhone you can save money for it. It make take a few months or even a year, but you can get one.

If they make an affordable one, one that's good, why would people buy the more expensive one? Apple may sell more phones, but make less money.

Once they start doing that it will become a common assumption that phones cost a certain amount like it is accepted now that iPhones cost $X. Apple can't raise prices again, because that would take them above the accepted level.

Just like people expect to pay a certain amount of cash for a laptop, which were a lot more expensive in the past.
