Will consumers pay $1,000 (or more) for the next iPhone? | Fox News

Other media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, have indicated the 10th anniversary edition of the iPhone could cost as much as $1,400, putting it in the stratosphere of high-end smartphones.

With this level of pricing, analysts have wondered whether it might be too much for most people.

“I’m still a bit skeptical the phone ends up costing quite that much at the base level – I’ve been expecting either around $850 (roughly $100 above the current Plus model) or $950 (roughly $200 above the current Plus model),” Jackdaw Research chief analyst Jan Dawson said in an email to Fox News. “But regardless of what the actual price ends up being, it’s clear that it’ll cost more and perhaps quite a bit more than the predecessors.”

In addition to a high-end iPhone (the name of which is still reportedly undetermind), Apple is also likely to unveil two other iPhones: the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus.

Reports indicate that these devices are expected to be priced in-line with current iPhones.
