With great anticipation, we eagerly await the arrival of the iPhone 15 in the coming weeks and months. However, that doesn’t mean we’re going to overlook any rumors or leaks about the potential features of the iPhone 16—especially if they involve a possible price reduction.
According to information shared on Chinese social media site Weibo (via MacRumors), an individual claiming decades of experience in the electronics industry has provided some intriguing details. While leaks should always be taken with a grain of salt, this particular source has been reliable in the past.
The source suggests that Apple is considering a change in its manufacturing process for the A17 Bionic chipsets, which are expected to power this year’s iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, as well as next year’s iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus.
This change is purportedly aimed at reducing production costs. Although the A17 Bionic chipset has not been officially announced yet, Apple’s potential cost-saving measures between the iPhone 15 and iPhone 16 could have a positive impact on consumers.
While we can only speculate about the exact implications for pricing, the possibility of price drops for consumers certainly emerges from this information. However, it’s important to remember that these details remain unconfirmed, and plans can always change.
We will have to wait for official announcements from Apple to ascertain the accuracy and validity of these rumors.
