The thinner iPhone 17 Slim will cost more than the larger iPhone 17 Pro Max

We've already heard that Apple is revamping its iPhone lineup next year, dropping the Plus model and launching Slim instead. But until now, we thought that the iPhone 17 Slim would be positioned in the same way as the Plus, only thinner.

According to a new report, this is not the case. Instead, the iPhone 17 Slim will be the most premium of the lineup, and therefore more expensive than even the iPhone 17 Pro Max, believe it or not.

Apple seems to love thinness these days, having recently launched the thinnest device it's ever made, the 13-inch iPad Pro, and now it's apparently looking to make the iPhone smaller too – and, in true Apple fashion, at a premium price.

Several sources claim that the iPhone 17 Slim – it's an iPhone X-level leap in terms of design language for Apple, and by 2025 it's definitely time for a fresh look. It is expected to be "significantly thinner" than any other iPhone before it, and may use an aluminum body.

The design is not yet finalized and Apple is apparently still considering several options . The dynamic island will be smaller, while the rear camera island will likely move to the center of the phone. The screen size is still unknown, the report says, although previous rumors suggested that the iPhone 17 Slim's display will be smaller than the iPhone 15 Plus.

If you're wondering why the Plus model will be discontinued after this year , everything is simple – due to low sales. Instead, the new slim iPhone could act as a halo model, attracting far more people than the Plus ever could.
