The iPhone series smartphones will be launched by Apple soon. This series will include iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Due to low sales, the company discontinued its Mini series. SE smartphones will replace the Mini series. There is a new report that claims the upcoming Pro models will be more expensive than previous models.

According to Jeff Pu, a technology analyst at Haitong International Securities in Hong Kong, the rumored hardware upgrades will drive up the price of the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro.

In January 2023, there was a rumor about the iPhone 15 Pro series getting more expensive. A titanium alloy body, a tactile sensor with haptic engine, solid-state buttons, an A17 Bionic chip, larger RAM, and periscope lenses are among the reasons for the price increase. The smartphone’s optical zoom performance would be improved by adding a periscope.

Once Apple launches the upcoming iPhones, we will know the truth behind the price hike. Since the launch of the iPhone X in 2017, Apple has priced its Pro models at USD 999. Meanwhile, the Pro Max starts at USD 1,099, the same price as the iPhone XS Max launched in 2018. Apple increased iPhone prices outside the US due to currency fluctuations.

The price hike for the standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus smartphones has not yet been reported. Apple introduced Dynamic Island with iPhone 14 Pro series, which would be available in vanilla versions.
