Apple’s more expensive iPhone 14 Pro could still start with the same 128GB of storage as the 13 Pro

Written by admin

Whether or not Apple will reveal and then releasing the iPhone 14 Quartet earlier than recent history suggests, we’re definitely getting close to Cupertino’s next big product announcement event, which means all the rumors and gossip from the past… 12 months should become clearer and more focused.

That’s not exactly the case yet on the crucial issue of the iPhone 14 Pro’s pricing, with a number of different analysts and generally reliable insiders looking somewhat undecided and erratic in their latest reports and tweets highlighting the potential effect of inflation. on Apple’s next-generation mobile powerhouses.

No storage upgrade for basic iPhone 14 Pro buyers?

Just two years after the iPhone 12 Pro switched from the 64 to 128 gigabytes of internal storage of its predecessor in an entry-level variant, the iPhone 14 Pro was tipped by a few different sources to ramp things up further to a local digital hoarding space of 256 GB in its own base configuration .

Jeff Pu, who has been proven right about a number of things about various unreleased Apple products in the past, has no new information to share on pricing, so in theory both the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro could still launch at the same prices as their 2021 predecessors.
But all things considered (and all the recent rumours), the most likely scenario at the moment is a price hike for the entire world iPhone 14 family without redeeming elements … except the rigorously leaked and often discussed camera upgrades and design revisions.

Interestingly, Pu also joins a chorus of experts who are unconcerned about this potential price hike today, anticipating a boost in iPhone 14 production compared to the original iPhone 13 series figures, indicating that no “significant” supply chain problems and possibly a year-on-year increase in demand.

The expected increase is not exactly dramatic, from 84 to 91 million units by the end of the year alone, partly due to the impending death of the terribly unpopular iPhone mini model and its replacement with a non-Pro Max handset is likely to prove much more successful.

So how much should we expect the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro to cost?

As you can imagine, that’s the million-no-billion-no-billion-dollar question whose answer may or may not increase the average selling price of Apple’s iPhone by a significant percentage, offsetting the negative effects of inflation to that end. keep profit margins nice and thick.

Unfortunately, no one really knows the answer to that question, and while a few different theories have been (timidly) formulated lately, this feels like the most plausible version to us right now:

  • iPhone 14 – $899 with 128GB storage; $999 in 256GB variant; $1099 for a 512 gig configuration
  • iPhone 14 Max – $999, $1099 and $1199 with 128, 256 and 512 GB storage respectively
  • iPhone 14 Pro – $1099 with 128GB storage; $1199 with 256GB; $1399 with 512GB; $1599 with 1TB
  • iPhone 14 Pro Max – $1199 with 128GB storage; $1299 with 256GB; $1499 with 512GB; $1699 with 1TB

Look, we don’t have a crystal ball or anything, so if these numbers don’t come out next month, we sure would appreciate it if you didn’t wreck our headquarters. It’s all a guessing game for now, and we love it or hate it, we currently suspect Apple will add $100 across the board to the “regular”, Pro and Pro Max iPhone prices.

That wouldn’t be so terrible, especially considering some of the… new features, capabilities and technologies tipped for the Pro duo, for example, while the It’s clear that iPhone 14 Max is going to cost a lot more than the iPhone 13 mini it’s technically going to replace.
