Analyst Predicts That iPhone 15 Series May See A Significant Price Increase Of $100 To $200

According to the recent forecast of Dan Ives, a well-known Apple industry chain observer and Wedbush Securities analyst, the new iPhone 15 series released by Apple this fall may increase in price by US$100 to US$200, and the high-end iPhone 15 Pro Max will increase by US$200. The 1TB version of the iPhone 15 Pro Max could cost as much as $1,800, making it the most expensive iPhone ever.

Dan Ives explained the reasons for the price increase, including the overall cost increase and the upgrade of the mobile phone itself.

Apple will change the Lightning interface to Type C under the requirements of EU regulations. Equipped with “Smart Island”, higher pixel CMOS and new material middle frame, etc.

In addition, the iPhone series has not raised prices in the United States since 2017. He also said that an estimated 250 million iPhone users have not changed their phones in the past four years, so it is expected that iPhone 15 sales will reach 235 million to 240 million units. One of the reasons for the replacement may be to replace the Type C interface.

It is currently predicted that the price of the iPhone 15 Pro will start at US$1,199, while the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Pro Max will start at US$1,299.

Last year’s high-end iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max were priced at $999 and $1,099, respectively, so the price increase was up to $200.
