Apple insider leaks have shown that the iPhone 14 Pro variants are going to have a number of different exclusive enhancements as well as increased prices. However, a fresh source suggests that ordinary iPhone 14 models will also be subject to a price increase. This is despite the fact that these models are nearly identical to their forerunners.
Dan Ives, the head of the well-known analyst organisation Wedbush Securities, recently gave an interview to The Sun in which he attributed the increase in price to factors related to the supply chain.
Ives added that they anticipate an increase in the price of the iPhone 14 by one hundred dollars in the near future. Cupertino will have to pass these expenses on to the customer because prices have been going up throughout the entire supply chain, and this release will be affected by this.
Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at TF International Securities, recently stated that based on a study he did, the iPhone 14 will sell more than its predecessor in China because some Chinese distributors, merchants, and scalpers are paying the largest prepaid deposit ever for the handset. Kuo came to this conclusion after observing that some Chinese distributors, merchants, and scalpers are paying the largest prepaid deposit ever for the handset.
The Apple iPhone 14 Max is the model of smartphone that is most expected to be released this year, and there are quite a few reasons behind the high level of expectation that consumers have for this model. According to rumours, the display on the iPhone 14 Max will measure 6.7 inches, which places it on par with the iPhone 13 Pro Max model and indicates that its dimensions will most likely be comparable to that of the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Consumers are looking for an iPhone with a larger screen, but the iPhone 13 Pro Max is priced beyond of reach for many people. If Apple were to release the iPhone 14 Max with a beginning price of $899, this would make it $300 less expensive than the iPhone 14 Pro Max, which was rumoured to have a starting price of $1,199. The difference in price of $300 between the iPhone 14 Pro Max and the iPhone 14 Max may motivate mainstream smartphone customers to seek out the 6.7-inch iPhone, which is considered to be more “cheap.”
Apple is going to release four new iPhone models: two regular iPhones (the iPhone 14 and the all-new iPhone 14 Max), as well as two Pro variants. A notch will be included on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, but the FaceID cutout on the pro models will be in the shape of a pill. The “Pro” variants will be equipped with a new A16 processor in order to further separate themselves from the “non-Pro” devices. In the meantime, the A15 chip, which also drives the iPhone 13, will be used to power both the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Max. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, normal iPhone 14 models will share considerably fewer features with iPhone 14 Pro models than in prior generations. This means that standard iPhone 14 models will not have the new 48MP wide-angle camera that will be seen on iPhone 14 Pro models.
There is a possibility that Apple will launch the iPhone 14 series on September 13, although nothing has been confirmed as of yet. September marks the beginning of the busiest shopping season in the United States, and this is the month that Apple normally releases new iPhone models.
