iPhone 7 32GB: ~$800 | 64GB: ~$930 | 256GB: ~$1080

iPhone 7 Plus 32GB: ~$925 | 128GB: ~$1050 | 256GB: ~$1200

iPhone 7 Pro 32GB: ~$1080 | 128GB: ~$1200 | 256GB: ~$1350


I really hope that this isn't true. That is really significant price hike. As an iPhone 6s Plus 64Gb user... I would have to pay $75 more to get a phone with half the memory... Or $200 more to get a phone with twice the memory... F THAT!! No way would I go for that unless it's the most impressive upgrade that the iPhone has ever received... It would have to have a full edge to edge oled display, 15' wireless charging, and include wireless earbuds for me to pay 200 more... No way I'm going down to 32.... Pro is likely out of the quest as well.

Here I made a 6s - 7 price chart for easy comparison.

That's pretty crazy if true. I'd be inclined to wait if that's the case

You guys need to remember that Apple is pushing hard for people to purchase their phones through either carrier financing or Apple's own financing. So even though there is a pretty significant price hike most people will only think of it as a few dollars extra a month.

In the above chart, you're basing the 6S prices off of current outright purchase and not based on Apple's financing program. My guess is that Apple is including AppleCare+ in the new pricing similar to their upgrade program.

As per: http://www.apple.com/shop/iphone/iphone-upgrade-program

The prices would be:
6S 16GB- $32.41 x 24 = $777.84
6S 64GB- $36.58 x 24 = $877.92
6S 128GB- $40.75 x 24 = $978

6S+ 16GB- $36.58 x 24 = $877.92
6S+ 64GB- $40.75 x 24 = $978
6S+ 128GB- $44.91 x 24 = $1077.84

When considering that, the prices are much closer.

Exactly this, Apple wants more people to utilize the financing so they get more money. Because the upgrade program includes AppleCare+ they will get extra money from those who never use the AppleCare+.

Those amounts are from Chinese currency translated to US dollars Other than the addition of the iPhone pro, there is no real difference in price from the current model.

I know. For me though I don't finance anything so I always look at what it costs outright. And that's a lot IMO. Seemingly raising prices when lately by comparisons sake it's been a relatively slow year is disappointing if true.

Guys calm down,
These prices are from China and it does include import tax and such.

Apple will keep the following pricing in the US.

iPhone 7 32GB: ~$650 | 64GB: ~$750 | 256GB: ~$850

iPhone 7 Plus 32GB: ~$750 | 128GB: ~$850 | 256GB: ~$950

iPhone 7 Pro 32GB: ~$850 | 128GB: ~$950 | 256GB: ~$1050

I wonder what the difference will be between the plus and pro models? More ram? More speakers? 5.8 inch screen?

I honestly doubt the leak is true.
Assuming it's even a "leak" and not just another rumor or basically just random guessing that someone put together just for fun (or for whatever reasons) without there really being anything else to it.

Jumping from 64gb to 256gb is a pretty big leap, but sure to appeal to those who might want to shoot video, etc.

I honestly doubt these prices. That is way too much of a price hike for entry level versions of phones, and Apple hasn't raised the price in the past (except with the Plus).

As someone else said, you have to factor in Chinese import costs and the markup for currency since this is based out of China. Apple would (hopefully) not raise prices, and I think it's doubtful that they will. The iPhone already pulls much higher margins than it needs to and it's a very highly priced phone as it is.

I don't think the price will go up on this year's iPhones.
[doublepost=1466810072][/doublepost]Also, read through this thread:

https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/iphone-6-pricing-leaked.1771500/

It has the same type of subject as this current one. Leaked prices for the 6/6+ were supposed to be over $800-$1200. These leaked iPhone 6 prices were also converted from Chinese Yen. Then take a look at what they actually were. Same story here I'd imagine.

If these products become even more pricey than they already are I might just bail all together. I already personal utilize android as a work device and could be perfectly happy there; my family and this the "ecosystem" is largely what keeps me with iOS on my personal device. Not going to happen if the base model hits me I the face at $900+

I don't think the price of the base phones are going up. That would be a bad, bad move by apple. Whether the base mode is 32GB or 16GB remains to be seen. I think they should ditch the 16GB, but who knows what apple is planning.
