In the United States they are spreading the news that the next iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max will raise their price for the first time in several yearswhile those of us who have been watching how the iPhone has risen non-stop since then rub our eyes.

The iPhone X was released in 2017 to mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. A completely redesigned new smartphone that dispensed with the start button so characteristic of the Apple phone for years, and that launched a new biometric identification system such as Face ID, and in which practically the entire front was a screen, except for the notch on the upper part that then became the new identifying mark of the iPhone. This iPhone X was then a considerable price increase, taking into account that it was a “special” phone, and that the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were launched that same year, cheaper and more continuous. Its price: €1,159.

Since then, in the United States, the price of the iPhone has remained stable, with a fixed price of $999 for all new models from that year. We are talking of course about the “Pro” models, because the “Pro Max” models have a fixed price of $1,099 since the iPhone XS Pro Max was launched the following year, the first model of that size. The thing outside the United States has not followed this same path, far from it, and we have seen year after year price increases on new models up to €1,319 for the iPhone 14 Pro and €1,469 for the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

The new iPhone 15 Pro is rumored to have a titanium chassis, new touch buttons, more RAM, a better camera with increased diptych zoom, and the new A17 Bionic processor. All these changes and the high inflation in the United States would be the justification for this price increase. The million dollar question is: How much will it go up in the rest of the countries? Hold on tight to the chair just in case.
