A $100 premium will be added to the iPhone 6 according to new reports

The iPhone has been criticized for the high price tag that it carries for people who aren’t signing a new cell phone contract, but that price is expected to go up an extra $100 with the release of the iPhone 6, as reported by Apple Balla.

The iPhone 6 is one of the most awaited devices in recent history, which will hopefully come with a larger screen that will help Apple keep in line with all of the other competing phones that have much larger screens than Apple has been willing to release.

One of the biggest reasons for the up charge will likely be the increase in cost of parts, but it will also come as a result of the market demand that is willing to pay an extra premium for the privilege of using the devices. The current models are $199 when customers sign a new contract, but the non contract price will be sent to sky high levels as a result of this. This will affect many of the new markets for Apple products, especially as they don’t have the benefit of the subsidized phone prices that Americans have.

 

There is not much information available currently available on when the phone will be released or how much it will cost, but there sill likely be plenty coming in during the coming months as we get closer to an official announcement. It is expected that a 3rd or 4th quarter release is likely.
