Apple sim tree costs nearly 100,000 VND
The sim stick is in the toolkit of the iPhone self-repair program and is controversial when
Account Arron Zollo said that Apple has two versions of sim trees. In particular, the one with a circular shape like a paperclip for the iPhone SE, while the retail version and packaged with other iPhone models are flattened and more beautiful. On Twitter, the account arj123 claims that the product costs $ 4 because "designed by Apple in Cupertino, California".
Many Vietnamese users commented on Facebook that there are some cheap or free and more environmentally friendly solutions than using toothpicks or paper clips. On domestic e-commerce sites, sim sticks are sold for from 1,000 VND. Before Apple, Bkav used to sell sim sticks for 10,000 VND but has now stopped distributing this product.
According to technology pages, Apple offers the above price because the cost of sales is more than the cost of production. Before that, the company also caused controversy when selling screen wipes for $ 19 (more than 400,000 VND).
The iPhone self-repair program has been implemented by Apple since April 27 in the US and will gradually expand to other markets. Currently users can replace the battery, screen and camera for iPhone SE, iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 series. To do this, Apple rents out a dedicated toolkit for $49 for a week, or users can buy individual tools and accessories.
