It seems that Apple is planning to offer the iPhone 14 series at around the same price as the iPhone 13. A new report suggests that the starting price of the next iPhone 14 model could be around Rs 80,000. And this time there will be no mini version. Apple is expected to introduce a new Max variant, which could be positioned between the standard model and the iPhone 14 Pro model.
According to a post by user “yeux1122” on the Korean blog Naver, Apple does not plan to increase the price of its iPhone 14 series in order to attract more customers and achieve more sales despite high inflation and constraints. of chain. The post, which was first spotted by MacRumors, claims the decision was made by Apple’s “senior executives” due to a sluggish global smartphone market and declining demand.
The iPhone 14 is said to cost $799 in the United States, or around 63,200 rupees in India when converted. But, the device probably won’t cost as low in India as there are GST charges and import duties, among others, that apply. Moreover, Apple usually sets $1 at Rs 100. But, since the US price is similar to last year’s iPhone 13 series, it will probably be the same for the Indian market. The iPhone 13 was launched for Rs 79,990 and the iPhone 14 could also be on sale at the same price.
Keep in mind that Apple has yet to reveal official pricing and other details for the iPhone 14 series, which is expected to happen next month. The company is expected to announce the new set of iPhones on September 13. After the launch event, Apple will likely reduce the price of the iPhone 13 series, similar to what happened with the iPhone 12 series in 2021.
As for specs, many features have already been leaked online ahead of the rumored launch event, which is expected to take place in September 2022. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max are said to draw their power from the A15 chipset of the last year, while the Pro models will likely pack the new A16 SoC under the hood. The non-Pro models are supposed to feature the same dual rear camera setup we saw on the 2021 variants, but the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are supposed to feature the new 48 triple rear camera setup. megapixels.
