A Twitter user named Shadow_Leak is certain that he has received more information about the iPhone 14, which will probably be released in September 2022. Among other things, he has already spread that Apple could also work on a Max version of the non-Pro model. This should start at 899 US dollars for six gigabytes of RAM and 128 gigabytes of storage capacity. Since the euro is currently quite weak, buyers within the EU would have to be prepared for additional costs. So more than 1,000 euros for a 6.7-inch model of the iPhone 14 does not seem exaggerated.

Pro models could also be significantly more expensive
But that’s not all: The iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max could also make a price jump: instead of the previous $999 that is being called for the iPhone 13 Pro, the smaller of the two models in the version with the lowest memory could only then start at $1,099. For Germany, that would mean that 1,299 euros are not unlikely. The Pro Max version would then also increase in price.
How will the company justify the price increase?
It is unclear whether new technical refinements make this price jump necessary or whether Apple could react to problems with the supply of important components. In any case, no prices have been communicated so far, so there is still hope that rumors will remain. The past has shown that such early speculations do not always come true. Ultimately, Apple also has to keep an eye on the prices of the competition in order to be able to assert itself against Samsung and Co. next year.

Apple: Will the iPhone 14 Max be the new bestseller?
Since Apple is not planning an iPhone 14 Mini according to current leaks, the company’s focus could actually be on the comparatively cheaper basic models. If you appreciate the size of the Max version but don’t want to spend the price of a Pro Max, this is a good choice – especially when the price of the most powerful smartphones continues to rise.
