What to expect from iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max
This year’s ‘Pro’ iPhone models, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, are rumoured to come with some major upgrades, especially on the hardware front. Rumours are rife that the iPhone 15 Pro models could have a titanium frame and might also ditch the buttons for tactic-engine powered solid states volume buttons. Meanwhile, the iPhone 15 Pro Max is also expected to come with a new periscope lens.
On the inside, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are rumoured to have the A17 Bionic chip and increased RAM.
The rumour of a price hike for iPhone 15 Pro models comes for the second time. But, it remains to be seen if Apple will increase the price for ‘Pro’ iPhone models this year or not.
Out of the U.S, Apple has increased the prices of the ‘Pro’ iPhone models this year in India. The iPhone 14 Pro comes at for Rs 1,29,900, and iPhone 14 Pro Max costs Rs 1,39,900. There was a Rs 10,000 increase for both models. The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max were launched at Rs 1,19,900 and Rs 1,29,900, respectively, in 2021. So, we could expect higher prices in India as well.
