"Our checks indicate Apple has started negotiating with carriers on a $100 iPhone 6 price increase. The initial response has been no, but there seems to be an admission that there is no other game-changing device this year," Misek wrote in his report related to the price hike.

Although Misek hasn't explained as to why Apple need to negotiate with carriers on an iPhone price raise but, according to Business Insider, "it has to do with long-term contracts Apple has with carriers around subsidies."
