Jefferies analyst Peter Misek has put out a report suggesting that Apple's next iPhone will cost $100 more. In a bit of irony, wireless telecom carriers are said to be balking at this development.
"Our checks indicate Apple has started negotiating with carriers on a $100 iPhone 6 price increase," wrote Misek. "The initial response has been no, but there seems to be an admission (by wireless firms) that there is no other game-changing device this year. We think Apple might be able to get at least some of the increase, with the additional costs split between the carrier and consumer.
It has been long-rumored that the next iPhone will feature a larger screen to better compete with flagship Android devices.
An official release date has not been confirmed, but signs point to a fall release for the iPhone 6.
