Will the iPhones 14 be priced higher? Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said this, disputing another report that spoke of essentially unchanged prices.
According to the well-known and prolific analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhones 14 will have a slightly higher introductory price than their predecessors. The thesis is in contrast with a recent report, which supported the diametrically opposite thesis.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 14 will have a price 15% higher than that of the iPhone 13. The estimate is based on several factors and is also in line with the strong increases decided by almost every company that produces hardware or services. digital.
However, the positioning of the two ‘essential’ iPhone 14s should be clarified. Remember that they will probably not be equipped with a latest generation chip and will also continue to have the notch. The bulk of the upgrades this time around will be introduced exclusively on ‘Pro’ models.
How can you justify, therefore, a price increase in the face of a technical data sheet almost unchanged compared to the previous generation? Why should a consumer prefer an iPhone 14, when for much less he can take home an iPhone 13 with the exact same processor? Only last week the Korean site Naver, in collaboration with the leaker yeux1122, claimed that prices would remain almost unchanged .
It would not surprise us, rather, if in the face of the same price list for the ‘base’ iPhone 14, Apple decided to offer the Pro models at a higher price. Among other things, the iPhone 14 Pro will have a new screen with support for AoD technology, as well as a latest generation processor and a punch-hole cam instead of the usual notch.
Taking the 15% more suggested by Ming-Chi Kuo for good , the iPhone 14 Pro should start at a price of 1,399 euros, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max should cost 1,499 euros.
