iPhone 14 Pro sales are up, too.
Since the iPhone 14 Pro models are expected to cost more than the iPhone 13 Pro models, it’s a given that they will be more expensive when they launch. But it’s not only the new iPhones that will be subject to a price increase in the autumn.
When the new iPhone 14 is released, it might cost up to $100 more than the iPhone 13. British publication The Sun(opens in new tab) talked to experts who said so.
As reported by Phone Arena(opens in new tab), Wedbush Securities’ Dan Ives says the iPhone 14 will see a $100 price rise. There are conflicting reports as to whether or not it relates to Apple’s 6.1-inch basic iPhone or the Pro variants.
In the last several weeks, there has been a lot of talk about an increase in the price of the iPhone 14 Pro. The iPhone 14 Pro would cost $1,099 when it first goes on sale, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max would cost $1,199. This year’s newest versions of Apple’s bestselling iPhones are priced at $999 and $1,099.
The iPhone 14 Pro versions are set to have major enhancements over the existing models, which is one of the reasons for the price increase. The A16 Bionic processor may be found solely in the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max this autumn. It is reported that the A15 processor will be retained, but with extra RAM inserted in the other iPhone 14 versions. The primary camera on the iPhone 14 Pro versions is also expected to receive an upgrade, and the device might be the first Apple flagship to come without a notch since the iPhone X debuted in 2017.
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, on the other hand, may be subject to price increases as well, according to this report. Apple may be forced to raise pricing on its products as a result of growing component costs – the prices of the components needed to produce iPhones have increased.
Some variants of the iPhone, according to the source, may see just a modest price hike in the near future. The iPhone 14 would be the entry-level model if Apple does away with the mini from its portfolio this autumn. There is speculation that the bigger iPhone 14 Max will be more expensive.) The beginning price of the iPhone 14 range would be more than the $699 that Apple charges for the iPhone 13 small if the iPhone 14 costs $799, which is the same price as the iPhone 13 mini.
We believe that if Apple raises the pricing of the iPhone 14 series, it is taking a risk. Consumers may not be concerned about the increased costs of the iPhone 14 Pro variants because of the better feature set they will get. This year’s phones may be less exciting if they’re more expensive because of what seem to be minor updates to the iPhone 14.
Apple will continue to offer existing iPhone models in its autumn range even after the iPhone 14 is released. Every year, when the new iPhones go on sale, Apple tends to keep a few older devices on hand and reduce their pricing by around $100. In the face of increased phone bills this year, this might be the company’s solution.
Prior to making a final judgment on an all-inclusive price rise, we’ll wait for additional information on the iPhone 14’s pricing. The iPhone 14 release date has been anticipated for early September, so we should learn the iPhone 14’s pricing soon enough.
