As we approach the rumored release date of the next iPhone, rumors are circulating that the iPhone 15 Pro line will see a significant price increase. According to an unverified source on the Chinese blogging site Weibo, the iPhone 15 Pro will see a wider gap in pricing compared to the iPhone 15 Plus, and will be equipped with new features such as a Dynamic Island and a 48-megapixel main camera as standard.
While the Weibo post did not provide any specific numbers for the potential price increase, it is speculated that the increase could be around $100, based on past pricing trends.
This would take the current pricing of the iPhone 14 Pro, which currently retails at $999, above $1,000. This would mark the first time that both high-end iPhone models start at over $1,000.
While this rumor has yet to be confirmed by Apple, there is some logic behind the potential price increase. With the iPhone 15 line rumored to have several major changes and new features, it is likely that the price will also increase.

However, this decision could also go against previous reports of Apple’s concerns about low sales of the base model iPhone 14. In order to boost sales of the base model, some experts suggest that Apple may need to consider dropping the price.
Only time will tell if this rumor holds any truth, but it’s clear that Apple fans should brace themselves for the possibility of a higher price tag for the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro line. As always, we will have to wait for official confirmation from Apple before making any final judgments. So, stay tuned!
