Wait and save on iPhone 14

After 5-6 months you could even save more than 15% off the RRP by looking for the best deals.
iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max between 11% and 13% cheaper after 6 months
The buyers of the Pro versions can also be rewarded for their patience if they manage to wait around 6 months for the object of desire. Here the price should hardly move in the first 2-3 months.
