With multiple rumors proclaiming that Apple’s upcoming iPhone 14 Pro is due for a price hike this year, it seems like we better count on paying more for Apple’s higher-end models. And you can now add another voice to the mix of sources warning about more expensive iPhone Pro models.
Dan Ives, an analyst from Wedbush Securities, is forecasting that the iPhone 14 Pro models will “likely” see a $100 price increase, compared to iPhone 13 Pro models. That would mean a starting price of $1,099 for the iPhone 14 Pro and and an $1,199 iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Ives has said that a “$100 price increase on the iPhone 14 Pro/Pro Max is likely in store given component price increases as well as added functionality” of the phones. That echoes a tweet last week from reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo(opens in new tab), who predicts that the average selling price of the whole iPhone 14 range could increase by about 15% over the iPhone 13. Kuo did not mention a specific price, that squares with multiple rumors pointing to a $100 price increase for the Pros for many months now.
