iPhone 15 Pro models expected to see significant price hike

The full iPhone 15 lineup is expected to debut at Apple’s “Wonderlust” event on Tuesday, September 12.

Iphone 15 series is coming

If you’re an iPhone user holding out for the iPhone 15 and made 2023 “the year” that you finally buy a new iPhone, pucker up because it seems like Apple’s next big thing, the iPhone 15 Pro and its beefier sibling, the iPhone 15 Pro Max, are set to hit your wallets where it hurts. 

Yup, the company’s upcoming smartphones might come with a “major price hike,” according to DigiTimes senior analyst, Luke Lin.

Now, before you start selling your kidneys, the standard iPhone 15 and 15 Plus models are expected to keep their current price tags. So, you can breathe a sigh of relief…for now.

As for the potential dent in your savings, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max could be at least $100 steeper than their predecessors.

If these analysts’ predictions turn out to be true (which usually seems to be the case), we’re potentially looking at a starting price range of $1,099 to $1,199 for the iPhone 15 Pro and $1,199 to $1,299 for the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Why the sudden price hike?

The price surge for the Pro versions is reportedly due in part to fancy new features such as a titanium chassis and advanced periscope camera technology.

This news comes amid forecasts of a slowdown in global smartphone demand during the second half of 2023. But hey, who needs food and rent when you can have the latest iPhone, right?

The full iPhone 15 lineup is expected to debut at Apple’s “Wonderlust” event on Tuesday, September 12. And if rumors hold true, both Pro models will flaunt larger display sizes next year. Because, as they say, size does matter.
