Tech industry analysts claim to have some insight on what the next version of the iPhone will cost – and it’s not good news.

In fact, they believe it’ll be more expensive than the current iPhone 11 despite not bundling a charging adaptor or headphones in with it.

Jeff Pu, an analyst at Yuanta Investment Consulting, explained in a research note that the next iPhone will start at $749. For context, the iPhone 11 launched with prices starting at $699.

Pu’s analysis comes from the fact Apple will start including 5G technology in the phone for the first time, according to MacRumours.

Apple’s phones don’t yet incorporate 5G, but it’s believed the company is working on its own antennas and using Qualcomm modems to make its 2020 gadgets compatible with the new standard.

And, naturally, that could result in a price increase for customers.

There are believed to be a few different models of the iPhone 12 that will be released in September and it’s likely the price increase will apply to all of them.

As was the case last year, Apple could also launch ‘Pro’ versions of the iPhone 12 that’ll be even dearer.

Time to start saving.
