iPhone 15 Series Price Comparison

Despite rumors of price increases, most models of the iPhone 15 series did not see a significant rise in price. The only exception is the iPhone 15 Pro Max, which now starts at a higher price but offers more storage at 256GB instead of 128GB.

Comparing iPhone Prices Over the Years

PerfectRec has compiled a list of iPhone prices from the very first model and adjusted them for inflation to 2023. According to their data, the iPhone 15 is the most affordable iPhone since the original 2007 model, which had an inflation-adjusted price of $732.

The iPhone 12, on the other hand, was the most expensive iPhone with an inflation-adjusted price of $943. Interestingly, the Pro models have consistently decreased in price, despite always starting at $999. For example, the iPhone X would have cost $1,248 in 2023. The iPhone 15 Pro Max is now the second cheapest Pro model due to this year’s price increase.

The Overpriced iPhone 5C in 2023

In 2013, Apple introduced the iPhone 5C as a more affordable option. However, it would now cost $720 (inflation-adjusted) in 2023, which seems excessive compared to other iPhone SE models that have stayed under $500.

Despite varying prices in different countries over the years, the one consistency with iPhone prices is their stability. Surprisingly, in 2023, the prices decreased in Europe and the UK. Typically, prices tend to rise and rarely decrease.
