The prediction that the iPhone 15 will have a similar price point to the iPhone 14, especially for the Pro and Pro Max versions, seems unlikely to happen.
According to multiple trusted sources, the iPhone 15’s launch price is expected to remain relatively steady compared to its predecessor. Analysts and experts from well-known tech websites such as 9to5Mac, Tomsguide, and Macrumors consistently predict the starting prices for the iPhone 15 series as follows:
- iPhone 15: $799
- iPhone 15 Plus: $899
- iPhone 15 Pro: $1,099 (an increase of $100 from the iPhone 14 Pro)
- iPhone 15 Pro Max: $1,199 (an increase of $100 from the iPhone 14 Pro Max)
In 2022, Apple unveiled the iPhone 14 at a price similar to the iPhone 13, despite its superior upgrades. This set a global expectation among iPhone users that the iPhone 15 might maintain this pricing trend.
However, leaks suggest Apple is planning over 20 new upgrades for the iPhone 15, set to launch in early September 2023. One of the most significant changes includes replacing the Lightning port with a USB-C port across all four versions.
The Dynamic Island feature will make its debut on the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus. Both the standard and Pro versions will sport a primary 48MP sensor, while the Pro and Pro Max versions will offer a telephoto lens with 6x optical zoom capability.
The iPhone 15 Pro/Pro Max will employ the A17 Bionic chip with a peak frequency of 3.70GHz. This enhancement is expected to boost performance and reduce energy consumption. In contrast, the other two versions will run on the A16 Bionic chip, which was previously seen in the iPhone 14 Pro/Pro Max, instead of the A15 Bionic from its predecessor.
Color options are always a topic of interest among iPhone users. Rumors suggest that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will share a color palette, including Midnight, Starlight, Product (RED), Light Blue, and Light Pink. For the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, Apple is introducing two novel colors: Dark Red and Dark Blue.
Given these impressive upgrades, experts from Business Insider, Macrumors, and other reputable sources estimate the iPhone 15 Pro Max price might increase by up to $200, reaching $1,299. Meanwhile, the iPhone 15 Pro might see a $100 hike, while gia iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are expected to retain their predecessor’s pricing. Because of this anticipation, many customers have begun to learn about the iPhone 15 installment purchase.
All the information regarding the iPhone 15’s pricing remains speculative, based on rumors about the upcoming upgrades across the four soon-to-be-released versions. For the exact figures, all that fans can do is eagerly await the launch on 9/12 at 10 a.m. PT.
