iPhone 6 prices for all models leaked
The photo shows two columns of prices – one for the 4.7" model and one for the 5.5" model. Both iPhone 6 variants will have 3 different internal storage tiers – 16, 32, and 64 GB – same as before. It seems that an earlier rumor that Apple may add a 128 GB device to the roster is yet to be confirmed, if at all.
These prices are in HKD, and converting them to USD gives us the following numbers:
|iPhone 6||16 GB||32 GB||64 GB|
|4.7"||6,663 HKD = $859,70||7,671 HKD = $989,75||8,679 HKD = $1119,82|
|5.5"||7,923 HKD = $1022,28||8,931 HKD = $1152,34||9,687 HKD = $1249,88|
Looking at the HK Apple store page and converting the iPhone 5S price tags to USD, we can see that the current smartphone goes for around between $70 and $80 more in Hong Kong, depending on the tier. Keeping that in mind, we can guesstimate prices for the iPhone 6 to be at:
|iPhone 6||16 GB||32 GB||64 GB|
Of course, we are talking retail prices here – without contract. From these numbers, we can see that the 5.5" iPhone 6 will be quite the premium device, the 16 GB model starting at ~$50 above an 11" MacBook Air, and the top-tier 64 GB one costing ~$150 shy of a bottom-of-the-line 13” Retina MacBook Pro. Or, to put things in perspective, a 4G-capable iPad Air with 128 GB of storage currently costs $929.
If these prices are true, Apple seems really optimistic about the demand for the new, large screen iPhones. What do you make of these numbers?

I think it'll cost 699$/16GB for the 4.7" model and 799$/16GB for 5.5" model.
4. Jommick (Posts: 207; Member since: 10 Sep 2013)
this, mostly because foreign currency conversions for phones seem to be mostly made up numbers
26. Finalflash (Posts: 1799; Member since: 23 Jul 2013)
I think they already accounted for that seeing as how it was converting to 850. That plus apple wouldn't just up it by 50, that is not gougy enough, it would minimum be 100 so their 150 increase seems plausible.
5. cse.vicky (Posts: 107; Member since: 10 Dec 2010)
At 799, people will buy. But apple will end up with overestimated demand.
6. yahia_malka (Posts: 101; Member since: 27 Mar 2014)
If that wasn't with sapphire. , then it'll cost as a super specs laptop!!!
8. xondk (Posts: 111; Member since: 25 Mar 2014)
Anyone know the prices of the various older iphones at launch? just to put it in perspective?
10. xondk (Posts: 111; Member since: 25 Mar 2014)
Found something for those interested:
all I can say is.....wow. they just keep raising the price....
9. Scott93274 (Posts: 1171; Member since: 06 Aug 2013)
I am suddenly reminded of E3 2006 where Sony unveiled the PS3 for $600 and everyone just laughed.
11. xondk (Posts: 111; Member since: 25 Mar 2014)
yeah......just posted link above if curious about the pricing of the various ones...and sad part is that I don't think the actual price they pay for making the phone has become that much more expensive....
12. Scott93274 (Posts: 1171; Member since: 06 Aug 2013)
Yeah, I was already checking that Link out. Thanks. Though it doesn't have the launch MSRP for each device though. Still good information.

I love Apple and all, but there is no possible way I'm going to pay a grand for a smartphone when Apple sales their MacBook Airs for the same damn price. I understand Apple's premium price, but I've never understood why smartphones, in general, carry such a heavy price. In the past, the iPhone components have been said to total just under $200. Sell the phone for even $600 and you still make money. The Nexus 5 is where smartphones should be priced, but I imagine Google isn't concerned on making a profit on those.
17. Scott93274 (Posts: 1171; Member since: 06 Aug 2013)
Well, when you think about it. You take your phone everywhere with you. It's your personal connection to the digital world. For many people (myself included) it has replaced many functions of the traditional PC. So there is reason why they would charge so much for it. Though when your competition is selling their product at around half the price and is arguably more feature rich, one has to wonder how long they can expect to gouge the consumer without it having a considerable negative impact on sales.
20. Chaseism (Posts: 79; Member since: 08 May 2013)
I definitely understand phones replacing important things in our lives. But it gets to the point where you literally can't buy an iPhone out of pocket unless you're willing to go broke for it. If I lost my iPhone 5, I'd have to replace it with a Nexus 5. Great news for Google, terrible for their competitor. And what happens to these prices when more cellphone companies stop subsidizing phones? Even paying it off over the course of 2 years gets kind of expensive.
24. Scott93274 (Posts: 1171; Member since: 06 Aug 2013)
People who buy iPhones set the price. I don't intend to trash Apple, but the iPhone in all honesty sees very minimal hardware upgrades each year. Battery, RAM, display, storage shouldn't cost that much compared to previous years because those components see little to no change, heck, prices may have even dropped for a few of the components. And every year Apple charges more and more and people will still buy the phone. If sales were to actually drop then that would force Apple to reconsider their pricing structure, but until that happens, expect the price to continue to climb. Simple economics Demand goes up, so does the price, demand goes down you can expect the price to follow.

Seriously, if people keep lining up to be gouged, why not gouge them. Apple's investors are driving them to reach unrealistic margains, but they go for them anyway. And with their phones, it's been paying off. There are plenty of excellent phone choices out there so if people still want to be gouiged by apple, who's to stop them, it's their choice and they don't feel like they are being gouged.
34. cse.vicky (Posts: 107; Member since: 10 Dec 2010)
You don't understand the reason behind Nexus 5 pricing. Google does not make money from selling devices, but advertising which is not the case with Apple.
43. pookiewood (Posts: 607; Member since: 05 Mar 2012)
Well how do you explain Windows Phone pricing then? Ad dollars aren't the focus there.
15. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5620; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
good googly moogly!
i was going to buy the 32GB 4.7" model and i was expecting it to cost $750... x.x
16. hltechie (unregistered)
Wow, very expensive. Hope it won't really cost that much.
19. LINADVS (Posts: 29; Member since: 14 Jun 2014)
There Better Be A 5.5 inch 128gb Variant APPLE
21. XperiaFanZone (Posts: 1391; Member since: 21 Sep 2012)
Variant apple? What kind of apple is this, then?
65. Bioload25 (Posts: 210; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
I think she meant "There better be a 5.5 inch 128gb variant,Apple!"
36. hltechie (unregistered)
Why do you say that?
28. sabretigger (Posts: 22; Member since: 15 Sep 2012)
I think these are prices in Chinese RMB... Not HKD
46. tootiredtoday (Posts: 1; Member since: 03 Sep 2014)
Yes, sabertigger is right. The price is in RMB（元） not HKD. 1 USD = 6.14 RMB/ 7.75 HKD. Meaning the 4.7 16Gb = 1088 USD.
29. hnk.1 (Posts: 2; Member since: 24 Aug 2014)
With this money, I'll buy one Nexus Tablet 8 ($400 expected) Nexus 5 64gb($ 350), a phone with same specifications and screen size and still be left with money !
30. Taters (Posts: 3220; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
It was a forgone conclusion that they were going to raise the price, especially in Canada. I am guessing $799 Canadian for the 4.7 16gb model.
31. StanleyG88 (Posts: 85; Member since: 15 Mar 2012)
Most of Apple's iFruit (followers) will pay anything to stay current on the farm.
32. CreeDiddy (Posts: 304; Member since: 04 Nov 2011)
The prices will be more like this:
4.7" = $699, $799, $899, $999
5.5" = $799, $899, $999, $1099
These are more realistic. Also with customer billing the phone prices into their plans. $30 to $45 per month on a 24 month plan.
Apple needs to replace the 16GB with the 32GB as their base model.
39. Spirogyro (Posts: 1; Member since: 03 Sep 2014)
These prices are real, but don't include the Service provider's subsidies. That said, knock off $450 and you now have your new iphone pricing based on a 2 year contract.
41. Willy (Posts: 2; Member since: 06 Mar 2009)
That sounds about right pricewise. I was willing to go to $350 on contract for 32GB 5.5" model. Less @200 on sale of my 5 so net would be $150. At this price just might wait.
40. BlankSpaceNai (Posts: 127; Member since: 23 Apr 2014)
Well...lets hope that for that price point, they bring some serious new features to it to make the bang for the buck really worth it. I cant imagine that Apple would just raise the price for no reason, or at least be able to fast talk people into thinking that their new phone DESERVES the increase of price like the bigger screen. But...the problem with that is that people can compare that to android devices who've had screens like that for a while and still maintain a reasonable price range. I dunno, lets wait and see before we judge these prices.
42. pookiewood (Posts: 607; Member since: 05 Mar 2012)
Ha! Apple always trolling with the prices.
45. glideair (Posts: 1; Member since: 03 Sep 2014)
Another leak. How dramatic. Marketing must be running out of good ideas. Must have gotten that old ploy from the U.S. Congress. I must admit; it works with most smart-phone users.

source: 綜合市場消息, I can read Chinese and I think this is not a reliable source, probably more the case of reselling value for touts
52. smooth4lyfe (Posts: 7; Member since: 23 Mar 2013)
Ripoff price...but then again...its Apple
53. liojing (Posts: 2; Member since: 04 Sep 2014)
calm down folks.....
As a Chinese, let me guess what is happening. In the old days(iphone5 and before), iphone is not released in China at the same time as in US. But apple's crazy fans want to have it as soon as they can, thus sellers will "import" a few from other countries. Since the quantity is limited, they just raise the price to a ridiculous level: imagine a $1700 iphone 4!
Even if Apple releases its phone in China at the same time as in US now, at the beginning, the quantity is still not large enough to meet the demand of Chinese people.Thus the raised price continue to exist. For example, the gold iphone5S was once sold at $1400, and there are still a lot of people eager to buy it.Don't ask me why! I also want to know why there exist so many rich and ....stupid people in my country!
Anyway, I would guess that the price will be kept at $649 as they have been doing for 4s,5 and 5s.

Fun fact of the day: China was the first country to have one million millionaires.
67. liojing (Posts: 2; Member since: 04 Sep 2014)
Turned out to be the fact....exactly......
What's worse they didn't release it at the same time in china this time. Thus we see these more than $1700 iphone again...holy s**t!
54. HarryWild (Posts: 40; Member since: 18 Oct 2012)
Reasonable as always! But I thought they took the 32GB away and added in the 128GB version. Guess they did not get the word!
55. utazdevl (Posts: 1; Member since: 04 Sep 2014)
If these number hold, it is going to drive people in droves to T-Mobile and AT&T and Verizon's annual upgrade programs. There is no way people are going to be willing to pay $350 plus a 2 year contract for a 16GB 4.7 inch iPhone (which is basically the cheapest option of the new phone line). That said, they might be willing to pay as much as $50 a month for their phone (which is what the highest end 5.5 model would likely run).
Frankly, I think it is quite absurd that if my wife wants the 32GB 5.5 iPhone she'll likely pay $500-$600 when my LG G3 comes with a 5.5 inch screen and 32GB on board (plus an SD card slot) and cost me $99 and included a $100 Best Buy Gift card. Is iOS really worth that much?
56. khoaki (Posts: 1; Member since: 04 Sep 2014)
you pay this amount and they come out with the iphone 5c or s or what ever 6 months later.
58. getpricepk (Posts: 1; Member since: 05 Sep 2014)
wow it will be awesome if they include 128GB storage
60. AcerStan (Posts: 4; Member since: 24 Aug 2014)
Hahaha no way. Who will buy it then? I CERTAINLY WON'T
61. alexsupertramp (Posts: 21; Member since: 18 Oct 2013)
I hope this ushers in a golden age for the new apple fanboy memes
62. darkkjedii (Posts: 11801; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
I want the 128 gig 5.5, but ouch, that's a hefty price tag. I've got a few buyers lined up at $400 for my 5s, so that'll take some of the sting away.
63. RandomAshole (Posts: 29; Member since: 15 Apr 2014)
Have to sell 1 Kidney, some units of Blood, maybe some brain to get this junk.. It's just a phone, FFS...
64. Willy (Posts: 2; Member since: 06 Mar 2009)
One of the early posts referred to these as being atypical prices. Just a few days till the US Apple official prices come out out, so lets not overreact. Nonetheless, overly greedy prices on the part of Apple may provoke a backlash. I do consider it unconscionable that there's no memory slot
66. LuckyS (Posts: 72; Member since: 07 Dec 2013)
To much, considering there are so many better android phones for less money. :trollface:
