The iPhone 15 Pro Models Are Expected To Be More Expensive: An unconfirmed source on Weibo has spread the claim that Apple plans to raise the price of this year’s iPhone 15 Pro models in order to expand the price differential between those versions and the iPhone 15 Plus. There is currently no indication as to the magnitude of the prospective price increase. Both the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max start at $999 and $1,099, respectively. This means that if Apple were to raise the prices of either of these high-end iPhone models, they would cross the $1,000 threshold for the very first time.

According to the report, there will be an even greater need to differentiate between the Pro and non-Pro devices in terms of pricing this year because the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will gain a number of features that are currently exclusive to the Pro models. These features include Dynamic Island and the 48-megapixel camera.
It was claimed earlier this month that Apple is “extremely” concerned about the sales of the iPhone 14 Plus, which has a starting price of $899 – just $100 less than the iPhone 14 Pro. As a direct consequence of this, the company is reportedly considering a variety of different approaches to pricing in order to increase sales of the regular iPhone 15 models.
Due to the fact that the Weibo post was published by an unknown source, it is important to approach it with a healthy dose of skepticism at this point in time. Despite this, unsubstantiated rumors that originate on Weibo occasionally reveal information that turns out to be correct. One such example is the Adaptive True Tone flash and color selections that come with the iPhone 14 Pro.
The price of the iPhone 14 models released the year before did not go up by the predicted amount of roughly $100, as indicated by a number of publications; instead, the prices of these smartphones remained the same as those of the equivalent iPhone 13 models. Since the price of the smallest iPhone “Pro” model or comparable in the lineup has been $999 ever since it was introduced in 2017, it is only a matter of time until Apple hikes pricing once more.
