The Apple rumor mill is churning, and this time it’s all about the highly anticipated iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. We’ve all been eagerly waiting to see what Apple has up its sleeve this time, but there’s a twist in the story — brace yourselves for a possible price bump. According to DigiTimes, the new Pro iPhones might just be $100 to $200 more expensive than their predecessors.
Do you know how Apple’s iPhones are a blend of sleek design, cool features, and a hefty price tag? Well, get ready for a bit more heft this time. The gurus at DigiTimes suggest that the starting price of the iPhone 15 Pro could go from the previous $999 to a range of $1,099 to $1,199. As for the iPhone 15 Pro Max, it might hop from $1,099 to somewhere between $1,199 and $1,299. Yep, it’s like that designer coffee you love, but a bit pricier.
Hold on, before you start digging out your savings, let’s think this through. While we all love the latest and greatest, a higher price might make some of us think twice. It’s like deciding between the super deluxe movie experience and a regular ticket — do those extra perks justify the cost? Apple’s got to come strong with features to convince us this time.
Industry experts initially expected around 83 million shiny new iPhone 15 Pro models to fly off the shelves in 2023. But with this price twist, they’re rethinking things, estimating around 77 million units instead. That’s like having a big sale but with fewer shoppers lining up. And it’s not just Apple; the whole smartphone industry seems to be slowing down a bit, with growth dropping by over five percent compared to last year.
Remember Mark Gurman from Bloomberg? He spilled the beans that Apple was seriously thinking about hiking up the prices of the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max. And he’s not alone — analyst Jeff Pu chimed in, suggesting the Pro could start at $1,099, up from the $999 of the iPhone 14 Pro. Looks like these guys are on to something.
We’re all set for the big reveal of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, September 12 — that’s when Apple might just blow our minds. If tradition holds, pre-orders should kick off on Friday, September 15, and the phones could hit the market on Friday, September 22. Just in time to show off your shiny new toy!
