Rumors regarding the iPhone 14 series have persisted for quite some time. It is anticipated that the four upcoming models—the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Max, and iPhone 14Pro Max—will be unveiled in September of this year. The current rumor states that the iPhone 14 will cost $100 (roughly Rs. 7,900) more than the iPhone 13 did. According to reports, Apple’s supply chain is experiencing price increases overall. The iPhone14 is rumored to have a 6.1-inch screen and a 3,279mAh battery. The phone’s processor could be an Apple A15 Bionic chip.
According to The Sun, the price of the new iPhone 14 will be more expensive than the iPhone 13 model. The Wedbush analyst Dan Ives was quoted in the article as saying, “We believe a $100 price increase is coming for the iPhone 14.” He continued by stating that due to rising supply-chain costs, Apple may pass those costs along to customers.

The rise in production, component costs, and exchange rates, according to another analyst, Ben Wood from CCS Insight, may necessitate a price increase. He went on to say that “Apple may decide that raising prices could be counterproductive given the cost of living headwinds.”
