The much-anticipated Apple iPhone 15 series is finally arrived, and it packs a punch. With a range of new features like USB-C charging, the mysterious yet enticing Dynamic Island, and—no surprises here—stellar camera upgrades, there’s a lot to be excited about.
But hang on—let’s talk money for a second. The iPhone 15 Pro Max is going to set you back an additional $100 compared to its predecessor. Given the economic climate, that might give some prospective buyers pause. So, is the new lineup worth the splurge?
The Numbers Don’t Lie
To get a sense of what people are thinking, Savings.com conducted a poll among 1,500 iPhone owners. Here’s the lowdown:
- 16% are eyeing the new iPhone 15 series for their next purchase—that’s roughly 20 million Americans!
- A significant 60% won’t be making the jump, mainly because of the price.
Interestingly, it’s not just about how long you’ve owned your current phone. From folks holding onto their iPhones for four years to the ones who just got theirs last year, there’s a similar spread of “yes, maybe, and no” across the board.
