It’s a long wait before it happens, but when Apple announces the new iPhone 14 series it will have bad news for consumers. The company may be going to throw up the recommended retail price.
On Twitter, LeaksApplePro already knows about the recommended retail price of the new iPhone 14 series. It is notable that mainly the Pro models are a lot more expensive than the current variants. Although the news should of course be taken with a grain of salt.
‘iPhone 14 Pro (Max) significantly more expensive’
There’s a pretty good chance that Apple will throw up the price of its flagships, according to LeaksApplePro. The standard iPhone 14 will retain its $799 price tag, where the mini will disappear altogether. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will both carry a higher price tag than the 2021 flagships. The former reportedly has a suggested retail price of $1099 and the latter of $1199.
Twitter won’t load because you didn’t give permission.
14 Max: $899
14 Pro: $1099
14 Pro Max: $1199
Apple is currently considering this.
Production costs are increasing and there has to be more than a $100 difference between the 14 Max and the 14 Pro.
Makes sense to me and wouldn’t expect changes.
Will keep you updated.

With this, the iPhone 14 Pro will take over the price tag of the 13 Pro Max and will tap into a new recommended price. Reportedly, Apple’s flagship device will have a similar price tag to Samsung’s flagship device. The only difference is that for the same money with the latter company you get 256GB of storage capacity. With the Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max, consumers can consider 128GB.
Cheap option disappears
So, should Apple adopt the above prices, the most affordable option will disappear. The iPhone 14 Max will take the place of the mini, but the regular model will not take over the price tag. Where the cheapest option for consumers is currently $699, starting this year that will become $799 again.
We have copied the prices for this article in dollars, as these are the prices that are currently known. It is good to know that in our country you are usually more expensive. Where you can currently buy the iPhone 13 for $799, you pay €909 in the Netherlands. The iPhone 13 Pro Max can currently be purchased for €1259, which is also the starting price for the iPhone 14 Pro.
