According to Wedbush Securities analyst Dan Ives , the iPhone 14 Pro models will “probably” see a $100 price increase over the iPhone 13 Pro models.
“While the base iPhone will remain the same price, we believe a $100 price increase on the iPhone 14 Pro/Pro Max will likely be in store, given the increases in component prices and additional features in this new release,” Ives said in a study. said.
Although it was expected to see a price increase in the iPhone 14 series, the iPhone’s production policy and current process aroused the thought that this increase would not come. Rumors now revealat least in the Pro version .
The Price Increase on iPhone 14 Pro Will Also Affect Pro Max
Last week, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that there will be “price increases” on the iPhone 14 Pro models and that they will be more expensive than the iPhone 13 Pro models . Although Kuo did not reveal the exact pricing, he said that the average selling price of the entire iPhone 14 series will increase by about 15% in total.
In the US, the iPhone 13 Pro starts at $999 and the iPhone 13 Pro Max starts at $1,099. If a $100 price increase proves to be true, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will start at $1,099 and $1,199, respectively. Ives said the price increase will be partly due to increased component prices and new features.
Claims that the iPhone 14 Pro will launch with 256GB of storage have also been around for a while, and this could help soften the impact of the price increase, but one analyst believes 128GB is still the initial storage .
