Apple’s iPhone 14 Is Coming Soon. But will the price increase?

Apple's iPhone 14 Is Coming Soon

The Far Out launch event for Apple is set for September 7. This indicates that the iPhone 14 will probably be available in around a week and a half. But how much will it cost with a host of enhancements anticipated to accompany the next iPhone?

If the leaks and speculations are to be believed, the 2021 iPhone 13’s replacement will include a notchless display, a 48-megapixel camera on the top models, and a new 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max option.

Wedbush analyst Dan Ives said that all of these would result in a price hike of $100, as published on Ped30. This is consistent with earlier predictions made by analysts to The Sun, who said that prices are rising throughout Apple’s whole supply chain. A request for comment from Apple was not answered.

The pricing of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 did not change, but both iPhone models are also rather comparable. It makes sense to assume that more substantial modifications could cost more. However, Apple could maintain the pricing in order to compete with Android products like the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Google’s Pixel 6 series.

Although some new size options have appeared later than normal in previous years, Apple typically releases its new iPhone models in September, shortly after they are unveiled. The South China Morning Post claims that Foxconn, an Apple supplier, went on a recruiting binge to be ready for the launch.

Apple’s iPhone 14 price: What to expect

The pricing of the iPhone 14 has not yet been officially announced, and Apple never makes future product information available to the public before making an announcement. The price scheme for the iPhone 13 is the only information we know, as can be seen below.

Apple iPhone 13 US pricing:

128GB 256GB 512GB 1TB
iPhone 13 Mini $699 $799 $999 N/A
iPhone 13 $799 $899 $1,099 N/A
iPhone 13 Pro $999 $1,099 $1,299 $1,499
iPhone 13 Pro Max $1,099 $1,199 $1,399 $1,599

There’s a chance Apple may keep the same pricing structure for the iPhone in 2022 if it did in 2020 and 2021. However, reports that Apple may drop the iPhone Mini and switch to a less expensive 6.7-inch iPhone confuse matters a little. According to reports from the Nikkei Asian Review and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via 9to5Mac), this is the case.

A bigger iPhone 14 is said to be joining the lineup, and it will probably be dubbed the iPhone 14 Max. It would make sense for the iPhone 14 Max to cost $900 if Apple retains the basic iPhone’s pricing at $800. If the iPhone 14 is priced similarly to the iPhone 13, it would place it exactly between the $1,000 iPhone 14 Pro and the $1,100 iPhone 14 Pro Max.

However, according to 9to5Mac, reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes the so-called iPhone 14 Max would cost less than $900, signalling Apple may alter its pricing policy. To remain competitive, Apple has previously changed its prices. For example, the 2019 iPhone 11 was noted for its $699 beginning price, which was $50 less expensive than the iPhone XR of the previous year.

Based on the pricing of the iPhone 13, this is how the iPhone 14 may be priced across variants.
