According to a new leak, the next generation of iPhone Pro models may come with a higher price tag than their predecessors. The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max (or iPhone 15 Ultra) are rumored to arrive with slightly higher price tags than the iPhone 14 Pro models.
Price Increase for iPhone 15 Pro Models
Chinese sources suggest that Apple is planning a price increase for the iPhone 15 Pro models. It is not expected that this price increase will affect the entire iPhone 15 range, but rather just the Pro models. This rumored price increase is believed to be an attempt by Apple to widen the gap between the standard iPhone models and the Pro models.
Current Pricing for iPhone 14 Models
For some perspective, the current pricing for the iPhone 14 models is as follows: the iPhone 14 Plus starts at $899, while the step up to the iPhone 14 Pro costs an additional $100 at $999. If the rumored price increase for the iPhone 15 Pro models is true, it is possible that the iPhone 15 Plus may maintain a starting price of $899, while the iPhone 15 Pro could see a small increase to $1,049.
Rumors of Price Increases for Next-Gen iPhones
It is worth noting that rumors of price increases for the next generation of iPhones surface every year, and it is possible that this may end up being just another such rumor. Apple has maintained a base price of $999 for its flagship models since the iPhone X in 2017.
While it is still too early to know for certain whether or not the iPhone 15 Pro models will see a price increase over their predecessors, it is always important to take rumors and leaks with a grain of salt until official announcements are made. Regardless, the iPhone 15 series is not expected to make its debut until later in the year, so it will likely be some time before we know more concrete information about the pricing of these new models.
