Flagship iPhones – price increase not as high
According to Mozillion, the price of the iPhone rose from $199 in 2012 (iPhone 5) to $1,099 (iPhone 13 Pro Max) in 2021. Using these figures, the price increase is a whopping 452%. Mozillion concluded that if this trend continues over the next 10 years, the 2032 flagship iPhone will cost $6,069. However, a fact check reveals that the launch price of the iPhone 5 back in 2012 was $649. Comparing this figure to the $1,099 for the iPhone 13 Pro Max, this is a 69.5% increase. Thus, following this trend, by 2032, the flagship iPhone should cost less than $2000.
