The news: The starting price for Apple’s flagship iPhone is going up $50, according to Jeff Pu (60% accurate).
- The lowest-end iPhone 12 may start at $749 this year, which is $50 more than 2019 but the same as 2018
- The iPhone 11 currently starts at $699
Our take: With Apple already removing EarPods and the charging brick, I find a price increase on top of this highly unlikely. Pu’s poor track record also gives me serious doubts, especially for a price prediction.
