iPhone 15 price rumours
Analysts and insiders suggest that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus price could increase by up to $100. Additionally, the iPhone 15 Pro price and iPhone 15 Pro max price are expected to have similar price hikes.
If these rumours are true, the prices for the next-gen iPhone could look something like this:
- iPhone 15 – £849 / $799 / AU$1,339
- iPhone 15 Plus – £949 / $899 / AU$1,579
- iPhone 15 Pro – £1,209 /$1,099 / AU$1,899
- iPhone 15 Pro Max – £1,309 / $1,199 / AU$2,099
Leaks also suggest that Apple intend to implement this price increase all over the world, including the US. This could mean that the US and other countries worldwide will be impacted by the potential increase, which would be the first across-the-board change since 2017.
Why is the iPhone 15 price increasing?
The iPhone 15 series could be subject to a price hike due to the cost of production. Apparently, the new iPhone 15 model is 12% pricier to make than the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 15 Pro is 20% more expensive to manufacture than the iPhone 14 Pro. This could be due to various factors such as the rising costs of raw materials, energy and labor.
While we don’t know for certain what has caused these production costs to increase, it is likely that Apple will increase the price of the upcoming series to compensate for the extra production fees.
