Several reports formerly declared that the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max would be more expensive than the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. While a $100 rate increase for both models would have been simpler to stand, an update states that the situation for clients would be even more alarming, forcing them to invest more on Apple’s next flagships.

Report declares both the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max would be $200 more pricey than previous designs

In a paywalled report published on DigiTimes, evidence that the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will be more costly is revealed in a little line specifying, ‘The upcoming iPhone models from Apple will be more costly, causing market sources to be less positive about this year’s deliveries.’ While this little piece of details does not reveal the entire story, iMore handled to get to the bottom of it and discovered that both models will be $200 more costly, and that is for the base storage.

This massive cost walking might have been the reason why Apple informed providers to bring down the deliveries tally from 83 million to 77 million for 2023. With this reduction, Apple may deliver less systems in the fourth quarter, but a $200 cost boost in the U.S. indicates the innovation will generate more revenue for each iPhone offered in the area. We have also not discussed how this rate hike will affect consumers residing in nations outside of the United States border, with extra taxes indicating that both designs are anticipated to cost them more.

To be fair, Apple has kept the costs of its ‘Pro’ iPhones constant for several years, so while many people will call out the company’s greed as the primary reason for this $200 price increase, there are other elements that come into play, and that is primarily part costs, which due to inflation, have seen their rates rise. Even the A17 Bionic, which is said to be the world’s first 3nm chipset, will be more expensive to make than the $110 quantity it costs Apple to make each A16 Bionic.

While we undoubtedly want that the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max were priced the same as the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, our wishes alone can not choose what retail price Apple shall figure out for its flagship handsets, so similar to every other customer that wants the latest and biggest, we have to prepare our wallets.
