    Since I'm paying full retail if full retail goes up I'll just hold onto my current phone a little longer. No reason for price to increase when it costs under $250 to make. All comes down to greed, not to mention them adding $100 for more storage is the same sort of thing. Unless they start base model at 32gb I won't be paying more.

    With apple being successful I don't know why they would want to raise their prices on their phone.. They might drive customers away by doing that

    I doubt it would affect the core consumer group for Apple, but it could sway the neutral consumers (who may have used Android or Windows Phones in the past) away from potentially adding to the sales numbers.

    I will likely buy regardless of price increase but i would pay an extra 250+ on top of that if they can get a battery in there that will last more that 5 hrs under heavy use!!

    That would be great, and if they get better battery life than those on the Android side, it could be a huge game changer for Apple.

    It all depends on the new features offered of the iPhone 6!

    I would pay what ever Apple ask if they go with the 64 bit architecture - meaning at least 4GB RAM and has 802.11ac on it too! But from what I heard; Apple is not keen on moving quickly on this direction. I think they going wait until one of their competitors establish a 64 bit smartphone before the iPhone will get the 64 bit upgrade. That the way Apple is treating it! They just do not want to offer this jump when they don't have to.

    So if it is a 5.5" iPhone 6 - what features will it have? What will be the screen resolution; storage options; camera improvements, RAM, thinnest, color, metal case, etc...

    We are already paying premium price for iPhones. Now if the price goes up by $100 and there is nothing special about iPhone 6 except that its more thin and big then i may not go for it but ill neither go for android. Ill stick to my iPhone 5 & see whats in store for iPhone 6s.

    If it's pretty much the 5s with minimal spec or size bump, probably not. However, I'd have to see it to make that judgements. I still hope they'll drop 16GB from the lineup and start with 32GB.

    16 GB should be the norm from this generation forward. I don't see how can the Cloud argument can keep us believing in the usual needlessness for local storage. Local storage still needs to hold its weight for movies at least.

    I would rather apple came out with an iPhone pro that retailed for $1500.

    If they ever did bring up the price of the newer iPhones do you think it would be to get back to its roots of exclusivity? Or is it more of a greed thing?

    Likely a bit of both. However, there is a lot of competition. They may make a device with insane pricing but they won't butcher their whole line up...

    Yeah, they would be losing a good percentage of market share from the borderline users who aren't really invested in Apple's ecosystem.

    I seriously hope Apple reconsiders this position and think about the repercussions of jacking their prices up more than it has already been.

    iPhones are worth every penny even when you're buying it full price/off-contract. So if I had to pay an extra $100 for it on contract, it wouldn't be a problem.

    Price increase it not, once the new iPhone comes out, it will sell like crazy.

    Would You Pay More Money For The New iPhone If Apple Raised The Prices?-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1398285285.450793.jpg

    Well for the first time ill be fulfilling my 2yr contact and will renew a brand new one in Oct, So won't mind paying a little more. If i was buying outright I'm not to sure i would. The 64gb is $849 plus tax would be $900. If they come out with a 128gb, I don't see myself spending $1000 on a phone. I better be getting Tim Cooks autograph, 2 leather cases and an iTunes gift card with it lol

    32gb* needs to be the norm. 16 doesn't cut it, especially with higher resolution screens and apps/games becoming larger and larger in size.

    Look, this just came to me, since I'm going to wait for a re contract to get an iPhone 6, wouldn't this news be somewhat disregarded when I don't really buy anything but iPhones for the year? Subsidized prices or cash backs are going to be in effect anyways so I will need to pay nothing much more than sub-500 dollar prices at the end of the day...

    This news will probably affect the outright phone buyers I think.

    I'm on verizon with unlimited data so I pay full retail. Losing unlimited data isn't worth saving 200-300 when you look at in the long run of a 2 year contract. If they raise the price, from what it seems, would be more on the upgrade side of things with carriers subsidizing less, yet full price still staying the same. I still think apple isn't going to do this because they are notorious for keeping a certain price range, look at the iPad line.
