Apple’s highly anticipated annual September event is just around the corner, and this year’s spotlight will be on the unveiling of the new iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models. As the excitement builds, one burning question hangs in the air: just how much will these cutting-edge devices cost?

The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus

Similar to last year’s iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models, the iPhone 15 will feature a 6.1-inch display, while the larger iPhone 15 Plus will offer a spacious 6.7-inch screen. One exciting change expected across all the iPhone 15 models is the shift from the Lightning port to a USB-C port. Additionally, the Dynamic Island technology, previously exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max, will now be available on the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, replacing the traditional notch to create a sleeker and less intrusive design.

The premium variations of the iPhone 15 series are the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Keeping in line with last year’s iPhone 14 Pro models, the iPhone 15 Pro will feature a 6.1-inch display, while the iPhone 15 Pro Max will boast a generous 6.7-inch screen. These Pro models will come with exclusive features and enhancements to justify their higher price points.

The upcoming iPhone 15 Pro models are expected to introduce a sleeker design with thinner and curved bezels. Apple is also reportedly utilizing titanium material for the chassis, replacing the stainless steel used in the previous generation. Moreover, rumors suggest the addition of a redesigned “mute” button that may serve as an Action button, similar to the Apple Watch Ultra.

The highlight of the Pro models is undoubtedly the introduction of the upgraded 3-nanometer A17 chip, offering enhanced speed and power efficiency. Alongside the transition to USB-C, the Pro lineup will feature an upgraded USB-C port with faster USB 3.2 or Thunderbolt 3 transfer speeds. The iPhone 15 Pro Max is also expected to house an advanced telephoto camera lens, exclusively available on this model.

Potential Pricing and Storage Upgrades

Determining the pricing for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max has proven to be more elusive this year. Reports initially suggested a potential price increase compared to their predecessors. Jeff Pu, a tech analyst at Hong Kong-based investment firm Haitong International Securities, speculated that the iPhone 15 Pro could start at $1,099, while the starting price of the iPhone 14 Pro was $999. With these projections, the iPhone 15 Pro Max could potentially begin at $1,199.

Subsequent reports, including one from Taiwan-based outlet DigiTimes, have hinted at a price increase of at least $100 for the Pro models. According to DigiTimes’ forecast, the iPhone 15 Pro could be priced between $1,099 and $1,199, while the iPhone 15 Pro Max might fall within the range of $1,199 to $1,299.

There have also been whispers of a potential storage upgrade for the Pro models. The iPhone 15 Pro lineup may offer support for up to a staggering 2TB of storage, doubling the capacity of last year’s iPhone 14 Pro models, which maxed out at 1TB. Another possibility is that the iPhone 15 Pro models could come with a base storage option of 256GB, an increase from the previous 128GB base.

To give you an idea of the pricing ranges we might expect, here is a table showcasing the potential costs for different configurations of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models in the United States:
