iPhone 14 series will be $150 costlier than iPhone 13 series– A series of tweets by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggest that the new iPhone 14 series will be more expensive than the iPhone 13.
There will be a higher price tag on the iPhone 14 lineup than on the current flagship series, according to him. ASP for the iPhone 14 series is expected to increase by approximately 15% (compared with ASP for the iPhone 13 series) to $1,000-1,050 (USD),” Kuo tweeted.
Compared to previous leaks, this price hike for the iPhone 14 series is a significant change. Apple’s upcoming iPhone 14 series is expected to have some basic reasons behind its price hike.
Kuo predicted that the average selling price of iPhone 14 models would be $1,000-$1,050, mainly because of price hikes and increases in shipment proportion for the upper-end iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models.
As Kuo shared in his report, the iPhone 13 series sold for an average price closer to $900. According to Forbes, you can expect to spend $150 more on an iPhone 14 than on an iPhone 13.
As well, the Pro models will undergo some really significant changes that are proving to be expensive, so the retail price will increase. Apple will see one of its biggest price hikes in the history of its iPhone series if this occurs.
By equipping the Pro models with more exclusive features and upgrades, Apple plans to differentiate them from the standard iPhone 14 and new iPhone 14 Max.
There were also leaked new designs for the Pro models with i-shaped notches, upgraded cameras with 48MP sensors, and a new A16 Bionic chipset, all of which elevate the Pro models above their non-pro counterparts.
As a result, this year’s mini iPhone will be replaced by the larger 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max. A new iPhone 14 Max with an expected price of $899 will again represent a big price difference from last year’s iPhone 13 mini of $699.
However, the iPhone 14 price and specifications that are currently being discussed are all based on rumors and leaks. The official launch date has not yet been announced, but it is expected to occur in the first week of September.
