The notch-less redesign, which is largely considered as the most important improvement in the iPhone 14 series, has already been shown in Apple leaks. Right? Wrong. According to recent information, it will be their pricing.
The move by Apple to replace the iPhone 13 small with the iPhone 13 Max is expected to result in a $300 price rise.
And now we have a clear picture of the new iPhone 14 Max and the rest of the iPhone 14 series. For the first time, we can see the real front panels of all four variants. The pieces, interestingly, show key information that have been hot-tipped:
Thinner, symmetrical bezels will be found on iPhone 14 Pro variants.
Pro models have more rounded edges and are somewhat taller than non-pro ones.
The iPhone 14 Max is intended to replace the iPhone 13 Mini, and it is nearly the same size as the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Both iPhone 14 professionals feature the contentious New ‘I-shaped’ cutout, while standard versions retain the notch.
The alignment of genuine components (which is a common occurrence around this time of year as Apple ramps up mass manufacturing) gives credibility to leaks about the new models’ internals. That being said, this isn’t always a good thing. For the first time, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max are believed to rely on a previous-generation processor (Apple’s 2021 A15 Bionic, which is also found in the $ 429 iPhone SE), while the latest reported price rises (below) become much more likely.
To put it another way, an iPhone 14 Max will cost $200 less than an iPhone 14 Pro Max. Let’s have a look at how we can split this down. In the meanwhile, an iPhone 13 Pro Max costs $ 1099, while an iPhone 14 Max costs $ 899 — a $ 200 premium over the $ 699 iPhone 13 Mini it replaces. But not right now.
Due to rising component costs and Apple’s need to differentiate Pro and non-Pro iPhones, many rumors claim that the iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Pro price will be $ 1199 and $ 1099, respectively. The iPhone 14 Max might potentially cost up to $ 999, or $300 more than the iPhone 13 Mini. The iPhone 14 Max might now cost as much as $ 999, which is $ 300 more than the iPhone 13 Mini.
The iPhone 14 Pro is considerably more rounded than the iPhone 13 Pro due to angle modifications.
All of this leaves Apple aficionados with a conundrum: how big is the screen?
The low sales of the iPhone 13 Mini have once again proved that large displays are what customers really want, therefore a more affordable iPhone 14 Pro Max should suffice. However, if the iPhone 14 Max costs roughly $ 1000 and you spend an extra $100 to acquire an iPhone 14 Pro with a better design, enhanced camera, next-generation technology, and a 120 Hz promotion display, the reaction may be very different.
