The new iPhone 6, which is expected to be released in September could be more expensive. According to The Street, Jefferies analyst Peter Misek says that Apple is talking to carriers to raise the subsidized price from $199 to $299.
Carriers have supposedly told Apple to go screw themselves, but this stance could fade as their is just one iPhone. If a carrier is not able to offer the new iPhone 6 they are screwed.
Misek thinks that negotiations could end at cost split between carrier and consumer. The price increase would give Apple the needed gross margin increase on iPhone sales that would please the stock market.
