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.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers believes the number of penalties being called against teams -- which has been high during the preseason -- will eventually diminish once the regular season kicks off on Sept. 7.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
