Here’s one reality about the new iPhone that Apple fans might not be so excited about: It might be the priciest iPhone yet. Many expect the so-called iPhone 6 to be a complete overhaul of the 5S, packed with several new features that could push costs up. Back in April, Jeffries analyst Peter Misek said Apple was negotiating with carriers to increase the price of the iPhone 6 by $100 compared to the 5s, which starts at $199 with contract. Meanwhile, TechRadar says the new phone could cost more than $800 without a contract. That means it could cost almost double what the original iPhone cost in 2007, when it wasn’t subsidized by two-year contracts. The 5S starts at $649 without contract.
