A new Apple leak has revealed that the iPhone 14 will have a price increase.
The iPhone 14 is rumored to be launching at a higher price point than previous models, but it’s not clear which models will be affected or by how much. However, new information suggests that we may finally have an answer.

Dan Ives, a prominent analyst at Wedbush, has revealed in a research note obtained by MacRumors that the iPhone 14 Pro models will receive $100 price increases. He also believes that three of the four new iPhone 14 models will be priced higher than their predecessors.

We believe that the iPhone 14 Pro/Pro Max will see a $100 price increase due to component price increases and added functionality, explains Ives. The base iPhone model will stay at the same price.

Ives believes that the new iPhone models will be priced as follows:

iPhone 14 – $799
iPhone 14 Pro – $1099
iPhone 14 Pro Max – $1199

Even though some people were expecting storage tiers to change with the new iPhone 14 release, it looks like they will remain the same. The top-end prices for the 512GB iPhone 14 will be $1099, and the 1TB iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be $1599 and $1699, respectively.

According to the leaker, iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max prices will go up by $100. This is because Apple is replacing the $699 iPhone 13 Mini with the $899 iPhone 14 Max. Therefore, there will be a price increase across the board, with the starting price rising to $799.

As prices of components and new front-facing camera modules continue to rise, it’s no wonder that Apple is feeling the pressure to add a $100 price increase to their iPhone 14 models. In the past few weeks, price leaks have changed significantly, and it’s now believed that all iPhone 14 models will be $100 more expensive. While this might be difficult for consumers to stomach, it’s important to remember that Apple is likely under a lot of financial strain due to these rising costs.

Apple is reportedly cutting costs by using the iPhone 13’s A15 chip in the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max. This is the first time Apple has fitted the same chipset into different generations of iPhone. Standard models are also understood to be using last year’s rear camera system.

Consequently, Apple is cutting costs by using the iPhone 13’s A15 chip in the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max. This is the first time that Apple has fitted the same chipset into different generations of iPhone. The third increase comes from Apple’s new iPhone 14 Max, which replaces the $699 iPhone 13 Mini. Essentially a 6.7-inch version of the standard iPhone 14, Ives says the iPhone 14 Max will start from $899 ($929 without a 24-month carrier contract). The $799 iPhone 14 becomes the new starting point for the range.

Price increases, model swaps, and design and feature disparity are expected to hit customers hard. Last week, influential TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo revealed that customers are expected to spend 15% more on average when purchasing an iPhone 14 compared to an iPhone 13. That works out to approximately $150.

Millions of people will no doubt be happy to upgrade their iPhone this year, but with Apple predicted to kill off the Lightning connector next year, you may want to wait and see what happens.
