Planning to buy the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max? A recent rumour regarding the prices of the iPhone 15 Pro models could spell bad news. Apple is expected to release its next flagship iPhone 15 series later this year at a fall event. Despite it being months away, there are already a lot of rumors and leaks circulating about the new iPhones. These reports cover various aspects of the devices, such as their design, camera, and hardware, indicating that Apple plans to make notable changes, particularly with the iPhone 15 Pro models.
Gizmochina previously reported that suppliers anticipate high demand for the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max due to the expected significant upgrades. As a result of these upgrades, the iPhone 15 Pro models could see a price hike, according to a research note by analyst Jeff Pu which was spotted by MacRumors. This price hike would be the first time Apple raises iPhone 15 Pro prices in the US since the iPhone X.
The iPhone 14 Pro currently starts at $999 while the iPhone 14 Pro Max costs $1099 in the US. Pu cited several upgrades such as titanium frame, solid state buttons, A17 Bionic chipset and more, which could lead to the price hike of the iPhone 15 Pro models.
