The price of the new and upcoming iPhone 6 may be higher than the 5S, but getting to brag to all your friends about how AH-Mazing the phone is? Priceless.
According to Jefferies analyst Peter Misek, Apple may set the launch price of the iPhone 6 $100 more than the launch price of the 5S! We guess the Apple doesn't fall far from the money tree!
But don't worry! Before you weep, and try to console yourself by talking to Siri for hours on end, know this: things won't be that bad for us Apple lovers!
That's right, it looks like carriers will be taking more of the hit, as customers will not have to pay the full price difference, and according to Misek, the price hike is in Apple's favor:
"Carriers realize that the iPhone 6 will likely be the only headline-worthy high-end phone launched this year and that they will lose [subscribers] if they do not offer it."
Smart move, Apple. Smart move.
