There will probably be a higher price for the Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max and the iPhone 16 is going to miss some important features. So sound rumors from reliable sources. But how much more expensive will the iPhone 15 Pro Max be? And what should we miss about the iPhone 16?
According to new rumors, we expect the Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max to be more expensive than the iPhone 14 Pro Max, which currently officially costs around 1,476 euros. For the deluxe model you will pay 2,126 euros, kthen you will get 1TB of storage. Oh and will we be missing features on the iPhone 16? Rumors are rife that the buttons on iPhone 16 will be eliminated.
iPhone 15 and iPhone 16 shine in questionable fashion
Analyst Jeff Pu of Haitong International Securities, however, states after research that the 15 Pro Max will be even more expensive. Details why this is so are not revealed, but it is frankly not surprising.
It is noteworthy, however, that the same source stated that both Pro models cost more than their predecessors. This specifically highlighted the Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max. The higher price for the regular iPhone 15 estimate was not stated. But go ahead and start saving.
Is Apple laying its cards on the table?
If there is indeed a price hike, according to MacRumors, it could have to do with rumors of a periscope camera. This camera could be exclusive to the Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max and offer a wider zoom range than the standard phone camera.
With the iPhone 15 Pro, they are already counting on that. Although most rumors claim we won’t see a periscope camera on an iPhone until the iPhone 16 series.

iPhone 16 gets no buttons
PU doesn’t put a foot wrong. He also shed some light on the Apple iPhone 16 Pro. He claims (again) that there is now a “small” chance that this phone and the iPhone 16 Pro Max will have solid-state volume and mute buttons. That, in itself, is no surprise.
Originally, this feature (buttons do not move and instead provide haptic feedback) was announced for this model. When pressed on the 15 Pro and Pro Max, it should put things to work. However, there were reports that due to technical issues that it won’t be ready in time.
For now at least, eyes are on the iPhone 15, 15 Pro and the 15 Pro Max that we will welcome in two months, and then quietly wait until next year for the iPhone 16.
