The analyst believes that Apple will launch its top-of-the-line iPhone at a starting price of $1299 (roughly Rs 1,06,500). The iPhone 14 Pro Max was launched in the US for $1099 (roughly Rs 90,100), whereas in India, it was available at launch for Rs 1,39,000.

The iPhone 15 Pro is also said to receive a price bump. According to Long, the smaller Pro model will be launched for $1099 (roughly Rs 90,100). Pricing of the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will likely remain unchanged at $799 (roughly Rs 65,500) and $899 (roughly Rs 73,700), respectively.

The Pro models are likely to be far more expensive than the outgoing models, mainly due to the number of upgrades on offer. Apple is said to feature a titanium chassis in the Pro models, which will also reportedly get a new Action button with remapping features for various tasks. The 15 Pro Max is also said to feature a new periscope lens with support for up to 6x optical zoom. Therefore, it would not be a surprise if Apple increases the price of its iPhones later this year.
