Ahead of the iPhone 14 series launch, several leaks had hinted that its price would be skyrocketing. Luckily, that did not happen, despite all the crises Apple had to go through during the manufacturing process that was marred by Covid and raw material shortages. Apple managed to retain the iPhone 14 Pro Max price at the same level as its previous iteration - $1099. But seemingly, luck seems to be running out for the iPhone 15 series! The latest iPhone 15 Ultra price leak is shocking. In fact, it is not just expected to beat the price of the current iPhone 14 Pro Max, but actually skyrocket!
LeakApplePro reveals that the price of the iPhone 15 Ultra is expected to start at $1299 which is around $200 more than the iPhone 14 Pro Max! The only redeeming factor is that Apple may make the 256GB storage variant its base model. The point worth noting here is that the top-end 1TB internal storage model's price will reach up to $1799! This will make it the most expensive iPhone ever!
The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max were appreciated for their premium features. The powerful new A16 Bionic chipset, new Dynamic Island feature with the i-shaped cutout display, and the massive 48MP primary camera came in for high praise. However, the iPhone 15 Ultra will take the upgrades to another level which is expected to lead to a big price hike. Here are the reasons for the iPhone 15 Ultra’s whopping price:
– iPhone 15 Ultra may get new titanium chassis for the sides over the current stainless steel material used for Pro iPhones.
– iPhone 15 Ultra is also expected to make changes to its design with curved edges. The iPhone 14 Pro Max looks almost exactly like the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
– The iPhone 15 Ultra may finally bring the powerful Periscope Zoom Lens, implying a massive upgrade in optical and digital zoom.
– Dual front selfie cameras! Yes, several leaks suggest that for the first time ever, the iPhone 15 Ultra will feature dual-selfie cameras on any iPhone.
– Arrival of USB-C port: The iPhone 15 lineup is expected to feature USB-C connectivity.
So, even as fans will feel the pain, the takeaway is that the iPhone 15 Ultra will be one great phone to own. Will the sacrifice be worth it?
