Please note that this post and chart include the rumored price of iPhone 15, as the Apple Event 2023 will start in two hours.
Most iPhone 15 rumors predict a price increase of the Pro models, which may sound disappointing for potential buyers.
Things look different when you compare the prices that are adjusted for inflation.
Take a look at the chart that shows inflation-adjusted price of every iPhone. The chart was published three days ago on PerfectRec. It shows the U.S. retail price of an unlocked iPhone in 2023 dollars, for a version with the lowest memory.
If the rumored prices turn out to be real, the conclusions are surprising:
▸ The base iPhone 15 would be the most affordable model since the original iPhone released back in 2007 ($799 vs. $732).
▸ The iPhone 15 Plus would be the most affordable large iPhone ever! ($899 vs. for instance $998 for iPhone 8 Plus in 2017).
▸ The cheapest Pro model was released in 2022. It’s iPhone 14 Pro, and its inflation-adjusted price is $1,031. iPhone Pro 15 is expected to cost $1,099.
