The new iPhone 14 will be the cheapest iPhone series ever
Good news, for iPhone bargainers you’re going to pay less for a future Apple flagship phone, says a leading analyst. Now for the bad news: They don’t mean the iPhone 13. Instead, expect that cheap iPhone to arrive in 2022. The prediction comes from Apple’s principal analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a pretty good track record for predicting Apple’s future moves. In a research note spotted by 9to5Mac, Kuo addresses the prices of the iPhone 14. Yes, that’s right – the iPhone 13 wasn’t expected to arrive this fall, but models a year later.
According to Kuo, Apple will once again come out with four iPhones in 2022 — two low-end devices with 6.1- and 6.7-inch screens, and two Pro models with similar screen sizes. The 6.7-inch entry-level model, tentatively called the iPhone 14 Max, will cost less than $900, making it the cheapest 6.7-inch phone Apple has offered. Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro Max is the company’s only current 6.7-inch offering, and the phone retails for $1,099.
Phone prices have been trending upwards for years, although more recently. iPhone makers have looked to reduce costs wanting to keep their handsets longer. In 2020, Apple introduced the iPhone 12 for $50 less than the starting price of the iPhone XR. This year Galaxy S21 update saw Samsung cut the prices on its phones by $250. Rumors suggest that Apple would like to continue that trend, at least for the iPhone 14.
Expected Price For Upcoming iPhone Series
We’re getting ahead of ourselves because we haven’t even seen the launch of the iPhone 13 yet. It’s expected around September, and when the phones arrive, most analysts are predicting that Apple will offer the same four models as every year. While pricing rumors for the iPhone 13 haven’t surfaced, the common consensus is that this year’s phone will cost roughly the same as the iPhone 12 model, with the iPhone 13 mini starting at $699 and the iPhone 13 Pro priced at $999.
The iPhone 13 is expected to feature a fast-refreshing display in Apple’s Pro model, while all four phones are likely to include LiDAR sensors with their current camera arrays to aid in AR-powered apps and features. We’re also expecting a new processor to power this year’s Apple phones.
As for the iPhone 14 leaks, the rumors draw a picture at this point – not surprising as the phone will be 15 months away from its debut. Rumors believe that future phones will bring back Touch ID as an under-display sensor, and other rumors have pointed to a 48-megapixel main camera. Rumors also suggest that the iPhone 13 mini will be the last compact phone Apple features except for any updates to the iPhone SE line.
What to expect from iPhone 14 Series
Apple is introducing the iPhone 13 Pro, the iPhone 14 Pro. Apple continues its strategy this year with three new iPhone 14 models.
