Why will the price of the iPhone go up?
As we said before, in these months there have been hardly any reports regarding the possible price of the iPhone 13. The little that there was indicated that they would remain identical to the current ones. We recall that at this time the iPhone 12 mini, 12, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max have prices of 809, 909, 1,159 and 1,259 euros respectively. Prices that, looking at previous years, did not represent an increase in their day.
However, the industry behind the components for mobile devices is experiencing a bad time due to the shortage of components, something that has made increase manufacturing costs. Apple, which seemed to be one of the few that would not be affected, will see its mobile devices reach the market on time, but not at the same cost as in previous years. Mainly due to TSMC, the supplier of microprocessors and that is already producing the A15 chips that will mount the new iPhones.
This is how the prices of the iPhone 13 could be
It must be said that, based on what they say from Digitimes, it would not be a very severe increase. They talk that it would mean an increase in between 3 and 5% compared to the current ones. Making an average calculation, we can already intuit some approximate prices for the most basic models of each range, finding this panorama:
- iPhone 13 mini: 859 euros
- iPhone 13: 959 euros
- iPhone 13 Pro: 1,199 euros
- iPhone 13 Pro Max: 1,299 euros
We insist on emphasizing that these prices have not been confirmed either by the media that have given this information and far from it by Apple. This is an approximation that we have made based on the percentages that are discussed and the marketing techniques that Apple uses when setting its prices, so on average we have estimated an increase of 50 euros for each model.
From Apple they have not commented on the matter. They never comment on rumors before the presentation and in this case it was not going to be less and more when it comes to something as relevant to the public as the price. In any case, the information that has been known does not seem to be very misguided, given the veracity of the facts that they comment in reference to the driver industry. In fact, it must be remembered that Digitimes with direct sources with most of the main manufacturers.
Therefore, if you were waiting for the exit of these iPhones to get one of them, you will have to save a little more. We remember that the official presentation will take place, except for a capital surprise, next September. It will be then when we can already know for sure what is the price to pay for these smartphones.
