Apple will likely charge an additional $100 for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6, according to Raymond James analyst Tavis McCourt via MarketWatch.

Notably, McCourt found that if Apple would charge the $100 premium, customers would be willing to pay it.

“Our June consumer survey points to continued growth in the willingness of iPhone users to pay $100 more for a bigger screened iPhone, with now a full one-third of survey respondents willing to pay a $100 premium.”

He also said that “data seems to suggest meaningful demand for a larger screen, which should logically mean the iPhone 6-cycle will be strong for upgrade sales, which combined with modest contribution from wearables should cause a modest acceleration in revenue growth in fiscal 2015.”

Raymond James increased its price target for Apple from $86 to $102.

“With Samsung trends eroding over the past several quarters and the Android marketplace seemingly undergoing meaningful commoditization, iPhone sales trends in the March quarter, and intra-quarter June data .. should give investors confidence that Apple has built a business that is sustainably capable of realizing higher than typical margins, driven by application ecosystem advantages, vertical integration across software, services and hardware, and brand positioning.”

Recently, Nomura Securities issued a report predicting that the 4.7-inch iPhone model will be dubbed the 'iPhone 6 Air', while the larger 5.5-inch model will be called the 'iPhone 6 Pro'. It also predicted that the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Pro will cost $750. That's $100 more than the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 Air is expected to cost.

no thank you. they need to drop the stupid 16gb base and start it at 32gb. Then this would be considered. Otherwise too many price tiers for apple. ---- also, analysts are wrong more often than not. Seriously, how do they keep their jobs? Not sure apple releases multiple versions unless it's a 6c and a 6.

6c I doubt it, 5c was the only way to make iPhone as cheap as it could be because 6c may be just the same price as the 5s was when it came out so that would barely make any difference, not that I want a 6c or saying Apple is greedy.

Just do it but make it look a bit different. Different colors or exclusive colors. I'm fine with pricing out poor people.
