iPhone 15 Pro prices are going up again
Start saving now, because the iPhone 15 Pro and the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be a lot more expensive. So says Jeff Pu, an Apple analyst working at Haitong Intl Tech Research.
In a report, the analyst said that the iPhone 15 Pro models will receive a price hike thanks to various upgrades. These upgrades include: a titanium frame, ‘fixed’ buttons with haptic feedback, more working memory, a periscope lens and the new A17 chip.
There have been rumors before that the prices of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max would increase. That was then in January on the Chinese social media website Weibo.
Europe has experienced price increases before
It is striking that prices in America have remained the same since the iPhone X (from 2017) and the iPhone XS Pro Max (from 2018). This is in contrast to Europe where iPhone prices have recently risen. According to the rumors, the prices of the iPhone 15 Pro will go up again this year. It is not yet known how much this price increase will ultimately be.
iPhone 15 Pro: no longer get real buttons
In addition to the new chip and periscope lens, it is striking that the iPhone 15 Pro does not have ‘real’ buttons. According to Apple expert Ming-Chi Kuo, you can still ‘feel’ that you are pressing something that looks like a button, but nothing actually moves.
The iPhone 15 Pro (Max) then uses special vibration motors to give you the feeling that you are pressing something. Apple also did this with the home button of the iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone SE 2020 and iPhone SE 2022. And you also see it with the trackpad of the MacBook Air 2022, among others.
