Apple delaying its iPhone 12 series due to the pandemic is not a secret anymore. And thanks to leaks and rumours, we already know how they might look. Some specs have also been revealed. But the main deal has always been the price. Although there’s no confirmation of any sort or any listing on an e-commerce giant’s internal stock memo, a new report now states that we may see a rise in the price of iPhones this time. A report from China now states that unlike mentioned in previously, keeping the price of the iPhone 12 same as the iPhone 11 won’t be possible.

The increased price of the 5G supporting iPhone is said to happen due to an increased Bill of Material (BOM) cost. The increase is said to be by almost $50 this time. Although it is rumoured that the iPhone 12 models won’t come with a charger inside the box, which may result in some price balance, we can’t really be sure about it.
