    How much do you think the most expensive new iPhone model will cost? Do you think it’ll be more expensive than Xs Max?

    I don’t see how it can be avoided that the new iPhone will cost more. Tariffs will have an impact.
    I don’t think it will be $2000.

    Welcome to iMore @charstv. Since Apple pricing usually goes UP yearly, I would think so. Maybe not quite $2000, but close to it for the high end model...In my estimate/opinion anyways.

    Do I think the any of the 2019 model iPhones will exceed 2 grand? No. The price will more than likely stay with the current pricing scheme, in my opinion.

    That chart doesn’t look right.

    I remember purchasing the first iPhone on Cingular for $600.

    To answer the op question, no I don’t think this years iPhone will be 2,000.

    Well the chart is right regardless of what you remember. The first iPhone starting price was $499.

    It claims the the original iPhone was $450, the price on on the xs is wrong as well. Looks like funny math.

    I, too, remember the first iPhone costing around $600. A co-worker purchased one and there were no monthly plans for it at the time.

    Humm, I remember $499 with AT&T and at the time I was into Blackberry and the thought of a non removable battery was out of the question. The 4gb was $499 and 8gb $599

    Just on assumption, I think the the XR will simply be named the "iPhone" which would be the "regular" priced iPhone and the iPhone "Pros" would be the more expensive ones just like now with the XS and XS Max.

    Just don't see Apple increasing their prices again because of the moniker they already have the "$1,000 phone".

    I’m not doubting you, and I do not know which model my former co-worker purchased, but I know he paid $600 for it. With that being said, I assume it was the 8 GB version you mentioned. Like you, I was a die-hard BlackBerry guy in those days.

    My first iPhone was the iPhone 3G.

    I'm guessing they will price this year's offerings to be lower since they hit a wall with sales on the new one. Not entirely sure but expect a 1000 dollar phone again.

    Price will most likely stay around the same price. They already got hit when they tried to raise prices (and ended up lowering prices in some markets).

    Thats what I remember at least, not $450.
    That 600 dollars was also the subsidized price with a 2 year contract. which was mandatory for activation with Cingular at the time.

    Competitors such as palm, Motorola, Nokia, and. Blackberry were all mocking apple and the iPhone for being too expensive. That didn’t work out well for any of them, since none of them make phones anymore.

    There is even a video of Ballmer lambasting the price of the iPhone and the fact that it didn’t have a physical keyboard.
    He claimed no one would buy it at that price.

    I’m of the opinion the XR “could” go up possibly $50 or $100 to account for what should be a camera equal to today’s XS and XS Max. It gives Apple a way to bump each starting price by $50 or even $100.

    So as I see it in USD starting prices could be as follows which will let XR still be $200 and $300 less than higher end models.
    XR Model: $849
    XS Model: $1049
    XS Max Model: $1149

    It will probably be slightly more expensive than the current XS and XS Max (at least the same price). I suspect the Pro models will definitely be more expensive. But they shouldn’t cost $2000. Apple’s pricing might be unreasonable (in my opinion), but it’s not that silly.
