Don't Wait If You Don't Want to Spend
If you don't want to spend a lot of money on your next phone, there's no sense in waiting around.
Barring a major change, you can expect the 2021 iPhone price points to fall somewhat in line with the iPhone 12 series prices.
We've heard that Apple could introduce a price bump due to increased manufacturing costs, but that's far from confirmed.
Max Weinbach, a leaker who has a hit or miss track record, claims there won't be a price bump "across the iPhone lineup."
Right now, the iPhone 12 mini starts at $699, the iPhone 12 at $799, iPhone 12 Pro at $999, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max at $1099.
If you don't want to shell out $700-$1000 (or more) for your next smartphone, you'll probably want to look at other options.
There are a slew of inexpensive iPhone options to look at and there are also a ton of cheap Android alternatives on the market right now.
