The standard iPhone might be redesigned with a larger screen. This raises the question of how it will impact its pricing.
The rumored iPhone 14 may be introduced in September, which is when Apple usually introduces new iPhones. The Pro models will feature a notchless display and a 48-megapixel camera. According to leaks and reports, Apple may also ditch the iPhone Mini in favor of a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max.
Analysts who spoke to The Sun predict that all of this may result in a $100 price hike. There has been an increase in prices across Apple's whole supply chain, according to the report. A comment from Apple wasn't immediately available.
Apple did not make any price changes between the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, but those two generations of iPhones are also quite similar. Larger upgrades may come at a higher price. The price may remain the same to remain competitive with Android devices like the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Google Pixel 6.
The new iPhone models are usually released shortly after they are unveiled in September, although some size options have been introduced later than usual in years past. South China Morning Post reports that Apple supplier Foxconn has gone on a hiring spree in preparation for the launch.
The iPhone 14's price has not yet been announced, and Apple never gives public information about its future products before announcing them. The pricing structure of the iPhone 13, shown below, may be the only clue we have.
In 2020 and 2021, Apple maintained a similar pricing structure for the iPhone, so it could continue to do so in 2022. However, rumors that Apple may scrap the iPhone Mini in favor of another, cheaper 6.7-inch iPhone complicate things. Nikkei Asian Review and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo report that this is the case.
It is believed that the new addition to the lineup will be a larger version of the iPhone 14 called the iPhone 14 Max. It seems reasonable that Apple would charge $900 for the iPhone 14 Max if they keep.
the same price for the standard iPhone. In that case, the iPhone 14 would be priced right between the $1,000 iPhone 14 Pro and the $1,100 iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Nevertheless, reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted this so-called iPhone 14 Max would cost less than $900, indicating Apple might change its pricing strategy. The iPhone 11's $699 starting price undercut the iPhone XR's by $50, but Apple has reshuffled its pricing before to remain competitive.
