The launch of the iPhone 14 range will come with higher costs, but which models and by how much are still up in the air. And now there might be a solution.


Dan Ives, a well-known analyst with Wedbush, stated in a research note that MacRumors got that the price of the iPhone 14 Pro versions will rise by $100. Additionally, he thinks the prices of three of the four new iPhone 14 models will be greater than those of its predecessors.The launch of the iPhone 14 range will come with higher costs, but which models and by how much are still up in the air.

Dan Ives, a well-known analyst with Wedbush, stated in a research note that MacRumors got that the price of the iPhone 14 Pro versions will rise by $100. Additionally, he thinks the prices of three of the four new iPhone 14 models will be greater than those of its predecessors.

If Ives' calculations are accurate, these models would be priced as follows:
  1. iPhone 14 - $799
  2. iPhone 14 Pro - $1099
  3. iPhone 14 Pro Max - $1199

The top-end costs for the storage tiers are anticipated to remain the same, coming in at $1099 for the 512GB iPhone 14 and $1599 and $1699 for the 1TB iPhone 14 Pro/iPhone 14 Pro Max, respectively. It is significant to note that these numbers are consistent with Apple's new pricing policy, which increases non-Pro models' prices by $30 when they are bought without a 24-month carrier commitment.

The $699 iPhone 13 Mini has been replaced by Apple's new iPhone 14 Max, which accounts for the third rise. Ives claims that the iPhone 14 Max, which is essentially a 6.7-inch version of the original iPhone 14, will start at $899 ($929 without a 24-month carrier contract). Additionally, the $799 iPhone 14 becomes the new range's entry point.


Customers should be heavily struck by this confluence of price rises, model swaps, and design and feature discrepancy. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known TF International Securities analyst, users may anticipate to spend 15% more on average when purchasing an iPhone 14 than an iPhone 13. The equivalent amount is roughly $150.


Undoubtedly, millions of people will upgrade cheerfully and pay this price, but because it's commonly believed that Apple will discontinue the Lightning port the following year, I'd say this is one iPhone generation you can afford to pass purchasing.
