At this point it's not known if retailers are taking a hit to their own profit margins by reducing prices across the board, or if Apple is instead footing the bill by providing incentives directly to the retailers (which are then passed on to the customer).

However, Apple's most recent range of iPhones - the Xr, Xs and Xs Max - have failed to ignite the smartphone market.

Come 2020, Apple could drop the LCD model and shift its entire iPhone line to OLED displays, some of the people said.

Other third-party sellers on the site had the devices for even cheaper, offering flash sales to try to unload iPhones. That's sure to be the iPhone 11 Max, or whatever Apple's biggest 2019 phone launches as.

He said the iPhone XR has, in fact, been the most popular iPhone "every single day" since it started shipping out to customers.

The XR has struggled to take off since it was launched in October past year.

Despite cutting its sales outlook earlier this month-for the first time in nearly two decades-as demand for its iPhones are expected to slow in China and elsewhere, Apple is planning to release a full line-up of new devices this fall.

The new iPhones will succeed the XR model that has shown sluggish demand with some analysts tipping that this may not be enough up against several new 5G smartphones from their competitors. Alibaba-backed Suning and JD.com have both cut its iPhone prices this week, according to Reuters.
