There is still a long way to go before Apple announces its series of new iPhone 15 at the end of this year, but many details have already been leaked about the terminals on the Internet. Beyond its possible characteristics, although we do not know its final price, it has been known that we will, once again, have to pay more money to buy them.
Again it is a well-known technology analyst like Jeff Pu, who is now suggesting that the models of iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Maxthe most expensive of the firm, could suffer a big price increase, as the company is reportedly planning to make big changes to this year’s iPhones. The standard model is also said to come with some big changes to the camera, design, and other areas that would also make it more expensive.
Why are we going to pay more for the iPhone 15?
According to the leaks, the high-end iPhone 15 models they could come with a solid-state button design with haptic feedback. We could also see Apple using a new periscope lens to offer users better optical zoom on the iPhone 15 Pro Max, although it is unknown if the same would be present on the regular iPhone Pro as well.
In addition, these two models could also come with more RAM and a titanium frame. New phones will almost certainly use the new Apple’s A17 Bionic chipset. All these features and some other updates could increase the price of the next iPhones, taking into account the increase in costs of the rest of the components that have also increased the prices of the phones of other brands.
Furthermore, it is suggested that there are possibilities that Apple is considering raising the priceor because it has been offering new phones at the old prices for two consecutive years, something that, of course, has not happened in Spain, where the iPhone 14s went on sale above what the iPhone 13s cost.
More differences between the standard and Pro models
In addition to this increase in the brand’s most Pro models, it has already been discussed that Apple could be planning create a huge gap between the standard and Pro models in terms of price and features. To encourage sales of the iPhone 15 Plus, instead of lowering the price of this smartphone, what the company will do is further raise the price of the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max with the aim of further differentiating these smartphones.
To all this we must add that it is widely rumored that this year the Cupertino firm will replace its model iPhone Pro Max for a new Ultra model, which will basically be designed to offer users the best of the best. It is something that would make sense if we remember that last year we met an Apple Watch Ultra, equipped with the best features of the manufacturer’s wearables.
Either way, until September of this year we will not be able to know how much the prices of Apple smartphones will rise.
