For months, weve taken the iPhone 14 Pro price structure for granted, a long time before Apple actually announces the iPhone 14 series. Thats because every leak painted exactly the same picture: the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max could be more expensive than previous Pro generations. Specifically, each model will definitely cost $100 a lot more than before.
But imagine if those $1,099 and $1,199 price estimates for the bottom iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max were wrong? Another figure appeared in recent leaks, indicating that the bottom models may be cheaper than we expected. But theyll be pricier than their predecessors.
Weve already explained that the rumored $100 price hike is practical because you get yourself a far better display. Which means a fresh notch design, 120Hz refresh rate, and always-on display functionality. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max may also feature the A16 Bionic chip paired with 6GB of faster DDR5 RAM.
Additionally, the triple-lens camera on the trunk will dsicover various significant upgrades, including a fresh 48-megapixel sensor for the wide-angle lens.
Finally, theres a slim chance the bottom iPhone 14 Pro storage begins at 256GB rather than 128GB. Of most these features, a storage bump may be the most crucial upgrade on the regular iPhone 14 model. That storage tier alone would help Apple justify a $100 price hike.
But weve seen different price estimates for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max recently. It started with a blog from Korea having said that iPhone 14 prices will go in another direction.
Then, a study note from TrendForce said all iPhone 14 models may be $50 cheaper than we thought. That could supply the iPhone 14 Pro a $1,049 price. The iPhone 14 Pro Max would cost $1,149 in that scenario.
Finally, Apple blogger John Gruber has predicted exactly the same $50 price hike for the iPhone 14 Pro models.
Of most these predictions, only TrendForce suggests the iPhone 14 Pro phones begins at 256GB of storage. Minus the extra storage, a $50 price increase may be a less strenuous pill to swallow when compared to a $100 price bump.
