iPhone 14 Price Can Be Atleast $100 More Than iPhone 13 Base Variant, As Per Analysts
It appears that iPhone 14 Pro models will receive multiple exclusive upgrades and higher pricing as revealed by Apple leaks.
iPhone 14 Upgrades And Price Bump
Interestingly, a latest report claims that standard iPhone 14 models will also receive a price bump, despite being virtually unchanged from their predecessors.
The supply chain prices are the driving force behind the increase, according to the Sun, Dan Ives, head of popular analyst group Wedbush Securities.
Ives said, “We believe a $100 price increase is coming for the iPhone 14. Prices have been increasing across the whole supply chain, and Cupertino needs to pass these costs to the consumer on this release.”
Expected New Prices For iPhone 14
Below is the iPhone 14 lineup price breakdown.
- iPhone 14 – $899 (iPhone 13 $799)
- iPhone 14 Max – $999 (iPhone 13 Mini $699)
- iPhone 14 Pro – $1099 (iPhone 13 Pro $999)
- iPhone 14 Pro Max – $1199 (iPhone 13 Pro Max $1099)
This increase of the $100 would hurt, particularly for standard models, which will sport the same design, rear cameras and chipset as the iPhone 13.
Notably, the big financial hit comes with the range’s entry point jumping from $699 to $899.
This is almost a 30% increase in prices. It is resulting from Apple discontinuing the 5.4-inch iPhone 13 Mini in favor of a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max (also tipped to be called the ‘iPhone 14 Plus’), which pushes the iPhone 14 into the base model position.
Expected iPhone 14 Features
Since, the iPhone 14 range has started production, so leaks are not only accelerating but they are adding a level of detail we have not seen before.
According to the first Reliable anonymous leaker, ShrimpApplePro, the new iPhone 14 Pro dual punch-hole redesign has now published detailed schematics for the flagship iPhone 14 Pro Max via Weibo.
So far, a large number of leaks claim that Apple will scrap the notch, though it is expected to be retained for non-Pro models.
The other interesting information from the leaks is the dimensions.
- iPhone 14 Pro Max – 160.71 x 78.78 x 7.85mm
- iPhone 13 Pro Max – 160.8 x 78.1 x 7.65 mm
As you can see, the differences are slight, so it appears that Apple would use the same chassis for iPhone 14 Pro models as their predecessors.
The experts suspect that the new 48-megapixel primary camera exclusive to Pro models will be a significant factor.
Also hope that larger batteries are behind the increase seem unlikely based on a recent capacity leak.
Sources said that the drive for Apple in 2022 is to widen the gap between Pro and non-Pro iPhone 14 models and price is one way that the company will do this.
Further adding, “The difference between the iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro is huge. Apple is really trying to save as much money as possible with the iPhone 14 production, so I don’t think the company plans on the $100 raise Wedbush is talking about”.
