Oh no, iPhone 15 Pro may be $200 more expensive

Apple's priciest iPhones might get even pricier this year.

If the rumors prove correct, the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro Max will feature an innovative periscope lens that will deliver a better zoom without increasing the size of the camera bump — and may even decrease it!

But that new technology is likely going to come at a price.

If you want one of the new handsets, be prepared to pay an extra $100 — or even $200 — for the top-of-the-line models.

Personally, I’ll probably suck it up and pay, because, well, what else am I gonna do? Skip it?

But I know some folks will balk at the price, and eke another year out of their current iPhone. So tell us in the poll below: Will you spend the extra cash?

  • If you have a lot of files on your Mac that you want to rename, here’s the best way to do it.

  • Anker’s Soundcore brand is launching a new set of headphones with adaptive noise cancellation that look a lot like Beats, but cost considerably less.

  • This beast of a power station from Momax will charge just about anything at up to 100W, and Cult of Mac readers get a special discount: First, clip the 10% off coupon on Amazon. Then, use code 20CULTOFMAC to save an extra 20%. That drops the normal price of $69.99 down to just $48.99.

  • Shocker! Sports documentaries aren’t very popular with you nerds that read this newsletter. See yesterday’s poll results below.

One more thing ...

I came out of a meeting with people that just got their project canceled, and they were 3 feet off the ground with excitement, because they finally understood where the heck we were going.
