As you guessed there was of course some smart ass who asked the question about whether they were going to cut the price of the UK iPhone by a third too. Sadly it wasn’t me, I couldn’t be there, they must have read my mind though.
The question was met with some laughs, but it got answered. Steve more or less said that there aren’t any plans right now to do that, but its technology and it could happen.
Personally I would much rather Apple share whatever discounts and price drops they get from their manufacturers with their customers than hold back on doing so just because it might piss some people off. Just keep doing what you are doing Apple, don’t listen to all the haters.
