iPhone 14 maybe $100 more expensive than the iPhone 13: Report
The iPhone 14 series has been the subject of persistent rumors. The four versions in the following range, the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Max, and iPhone 14 Pro Max, are anticipated to become official in September this year.
A rumor claims that the plain vanilla iPhone 14 will cost $100 (about Rs. 7,900) more than the iPhone 13. Price rises are occurring across the whole supply chain for Apple.
The iPhone 14 is said to have a 3,279mAh battery and a 6.1-inch screen size. The A15 Bionic processor from Apple may power the phone.
The Sun said that the pricing of the next iPhone 14 would be more than that of the iPhone 13 model. The article reported Wedbush analyst Dan Ives stating, “We expect a $100 price rise is imminent for the iPhone 14.” He continued by saying that as expenses have risen across the supply chain, Apple may pass those costs to customers.
Another analyst, Ben Wood from CCS Insight, said that a price hike would be required due to the surge in production, component prices, and currency rates. However, he said, “Apple may determine that raising pricing might be counterproductive given the cost of living headwinds.”
Currently, the standard 128GB storage option of the iPhone 13 costs $799 (about Rs. 63,700) in the US. Priced at Rs. 79,900, Rs. 89,900, and Rs. 1,09,900 for the 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage choices, respectively, it was released in India last year. The price of the iPhone 14 in India might be close to Rs. 90,000 if the current estimate is accurate.
The basic 128GB storage edition of the iPhone 13 mini cost Rs. 69,900, making it the least expensive model in the preceding series. The prices for the 256GB and 512GB storage choices are Rs. 79,900 and Rs. 99,900, respectively.
