Everything will be more expensive in 2022. This affects not only food, fuel and building materials, but also electronics. Apple could therefore also raise prices. But not all. According to some rumors, Apple could discount the standard “iPhone 14” model in the future and offer it at the previous price of the Mini models, while the larger Plus/Max variant is slightly higher. With the Pro models, however, this looks different. There should actually be a price increase there.
iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will be more expensive, but …
in one tweet Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple could increase prices by up to 15 percent compared to last year’s models. He did not want to give precise information about the prices. His statement is supported by TrendForce. in one new report the company assumes that Apple could justify the price increase by several factors. On the one hand, it is known that only the Pro models will receive the new and more efficient A16 Bionic, supported by faster RAM, while various improvements will be made to the triple camera system. This includes a 48-megapixel camera and support for 8K video recording. In addition, the front camera should have an autofocus for the first time. The TrueDepth camera is said to be more compact with smaller oval cutouts. What is particularly interesting, however, is the improved LTPO display, which is said to be always on.
However, Apple could justify the higher price with another change: storage space. According to TrendForce, the company will increase the base memory from 128 GB to 256 GB. This alone could increase the basic price from 1,149 euros to 1,269 euros. This corresponds to an increase of around 10 percent. In addition, 512 GB and 1 TB should be available as options.
How the prices of the iPhone will develop will be seen in September when Apple officially presents the models. What do you think? Will Apple raise prices or can the company continue to maintain price levels? Let us know in the comments.
