Apple’s new iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models will be unveiled at the company’s annual September event, which this year will be held on Tuesday, September 12. The question is, how much will it cost?

iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus

Like last year’s iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models, the iPhone 15 will be 6.1 inches, while the larger iPhone 15 Plus will be 6.7 inches. We expect to see a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port on all iPhone 15 models, and Dynamic Island will be available for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus as well as the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max. This means that Apple will ditch the notch it has used since the iPhone

Similar to last year’s high-end iPhone 14 Pro models, the iPhone 15 Pro is a 6.1-inch device, and the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be a 6.7-inch device. Likewise, Apple will retain the premium features of the Pro models that should justify the higher price. The iPhone 15 Pro models are expected to include some minor design updates, with Apple introducing thinner curved edges and a new titanium material for the body that will replace stainless steel. Apple is also expected to add a redesigned “Mute” button that could actually serve as an action button similar to the action button found on the Apple Watch Ultra.

High prices for professionals?

Compared to the iPhone 15 models, the prices of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are less certain this year. July Bloomberg The report indicated that Apple is considering raising the price of both Pro models in the upcoming iPhone 15 series, echoing an earlier prediction by Jeff Pu, a technology analyst at Hong Kong-based investment firm Haitong International Securities. Pu believes the price of the iPhone 15 Pro could start at $1,099, up from the starting price of $999 for the iPhone 14 Pro. If this is accurate, the iPhone 15 Pro Max could start at $1,199.
