The iPhone 15 series was released at a time when iPhone bans by Chinese rival Huawei and authorities were spreading, drawing more attention from the industry than ever before. According to the US Wall Street Journal ( WSJ ) on the 7th (local time), China recently issued a ‘ban’ ordering central government officials not to use iPhones. Huawei, which is considered a symbolic company in the technological conflict between the United States and China, overcame the technological gap and launched a 5th generation (5G) smartphone equipped with the latest semiconductors, attracting the world’s attention.
Coincidentally, the ‘iPhone ban’ was issued just as the release of the iPhone 15 was imminent, leading to interpretations in the industry that China was targeting the United States as a check. Meanwhile, pessimism spread as it was predicted that iPhone shipments would decrease by about 5% compared to the previous model.
Considering the improved performance and increased component prices compared to the previous model, the price of the iPhone 15 series is expected to rise further. The industry predicts that the price increase for the iPhone 15 will reach at least $100. Considering rising prices, some calculate that the factory price of the highest-capacity model will approach 3 million won.
The domestic release date of the iPhone 15 series has not been determined. Considering that the domestic market has been included in the ‘1.5 launch countries’, it is expected to be launched in earnest early next month after the Chuseok holiday.
