Top 5 Reasons Why Free IPhones Make Sense

A free iPhone may sound completely implausible, but there are actually some legitimate reasons that a free iPhone would be a good move for Apple to make. Many analysts are already theorizing that Apple is going to go in a cheaper direction with their expensive but ubiquitous handsets, and free may just be the next step towards total market domination.

1. It’s already free–sort of

Older models of iPhone already come free with many service plans, so it would be trivial to release a new model with the same cost. These iPhones wouldn’t really be coming free directly from Apple, but the cost would be fully subsidized by the cellphone companies with a new service plan. Since most people end up signing up for service plans anyway, this might not be that big of a deal. This would mean that Apple would still be collecting some money for the phones, just lowering the price. This would make the cellphone companies happy too because they would be selling more phones and more phone lines.

2. It will increase market saturation

While Apple has already saturated the market pretty significantly, there is still a rising Android demographic. A free phone would allow Apple to practically monopolize the cellphone industry, which would pave the way for many future revenue generating possibilities. Once the cellphone industry was appropriately saturated, Apple could return to charging more for its handsets. Since Apple prides itself on product integration, an increase in iPhone purchases would also increase their sales in other accessories.

3. The phone itself doesn’t have to be the revenue maker.

While the phones do cost a pretty penny, a lot of money is actually being made in the media and application store. This means that the more people have these phones, the more people will be buying items from these stores. Since the life of one of these phones is a year or two, the cost of the phone can be subsidized by these purchases. Laterally, an increase in app sales will also increase the sales of other related technology such as iPads.

4. The cost of the phone is largely an illusion

The phone itself probably doesn’t cost very much to create. Despite the heavy amounts of R&D that are put into these phones, it’s very likely that the price is set high artificially to increase its desirability. Since the phone has already achieved this goal, it really doesn’t need to keep inflating its price.

5. Apple can afford to do it

With all of the other reasons for a free iPhone in place, the only reason that Apple wouldn’t do it is because they can’t afford to. However, Apple has been exceedingly successful with a variety of products in recent years, and they can very well afford to produce free phones for at least a limited amount of time.

A free iPhone may not be what the future holds, but there’s no denying that it makes logistical sense for Apple. A free handset would allow Apple to completely dominate the market and to retain that hold. It would also open up Apple to explore a myriad of revenue opportunities that other handsets have not yet explored. It wouldn’t just secure the domination of the iPhone, but also of the iTunes store, and it would make iTunes practically a household necessity.

Ten Things To Do With A Broken iPhone

iPhone 5 Mockups

You see hundreds of iPhones on the commute to work and in the bar after working hours, and it’s fair to say that the novelty hasn’t worn off. However what you also see a huge amount of is iPhones with broken screens and the unfortunate downside of having a phone that’s so small and light and that has such a big beautiful screen is that that screen is rather prone to shattering at the slightest provocation.

And for every iPhone that continues to function with its broken screen, there are many more that are laid to rest. But it needn’t be a waste – here are some uses for a broken iPhone that might yet allow you to get some fun out of it.

Fixing iPhone 4S

Fix it: This has to be of course the best thing to do with a broken iPhone, and unless yours is absolutely trashed you’ll usually be able to get it fixed for a reasonable price and this will mean you can carry on using it and don’t have to pay for a new device.

Science Experiment: iPhones are smart pieces of kit which have all kinds of features. If you want to learn a little about technology then just opening up your phone and looking inside can teach you a bit. This is also the opportunity to try your ambitious science projects like putting the workings into another case or attaching a keyboard without worrying about it breaking.

Fixing iPhone 4S

Spare Parts: And if you’re already a super tech whizz, then you might be able to use some of the parts for other projects. Even if you aren’t an electronic engineer you can maybe use the plastic at least…

Sell it: And if you can’t someone else can – and you’d be surprised how much you can get for a broken iPhone on eBay.

Portable Harddrive: If it’s your screen that’s broken then it’s only the interface and display you’ve lost – you’ll still be able to use the phone to store and retrieve files which you can do using your computer.

Decoy: If you’re mugged and someone asks you to hand over your phone, then keeping your broken iPhone in your bag can be a good way to trick them and to get away with your real phone intact.


Paper Weight: iPhones may be light but they’re still heavy enough to weigh down a pile of papers, and they’ll look amusing relegated to such a menial task on your desk.

Art Installation: Likewise an iPhone is such a recognizable piece of premium equipment that it will be amusing used in a range of other situations too. If you’re the creative type then the remains of an iPhone could make a great pen holder, photo frame or broach… Okay maybe not a broach – coming up with the ideas is your job!

Prop for Pranks: A broken iPhone is a brilliant opportunity to make your friends and family feel guilty. Just pass them your phone but in such a way that they drop it and then act as though it’s their fault. Alternatively you can pretend to have a strop then slam your phone on the floor – just make sure that you let them know it’s a joke early on before they call the men in white coats…

YouTube Hit: ‘Will it blend’ is one of the biggest YouTube hits of them all, and particularly the one with the iPhone. While you might not be able to recreate quite that success, I know I’d watch someone ironing their old iPhone…
