The iPhone 14 series won’t be released for several months. However, many rumors are already circulating about it. This week, for example, @LeaksApplePro, on Twitter, publishes information concerning the prices of these future iPhones.
And according to this source, if the price of the iPhone 14 should be the same as that of its predecessor, there would be change with regard to the Pro models. More precisely, according to the publication, the iPhone 14 should have a price of 799 dollars in the United States for the base model, which is the price of an iPhone 13 at launch.
Like other sources, @LeaksApplePro says there won’t be an iPhone 14 mini, but rather an iPhone 14 Max (likely with an XXL display). And this one is said to have a starting price of $899 in the US.
As for the iPhone 14 Pro, its starting price in the United States would be $1,099, which is $100 more than the iPhone 13 Pro. For its part, the iPhone 14 Pro Max is said to have a starting price of $1,199, also up from the previous model.
14 Max: $899
14 Pro: $1099
14 Pro Max: $1199
Apple is currently considering this.
Production costs are increasing and there has to be more than a $100 difference between the 14 Max and the 14 Pro.
Makes sense to me and wouldn’t expect changes.
Will keep you updated.

Why these increases for certain models?
According to the explanations of the source, this measure would be considered by Apple for two reasons. First, production costs increase. But on top of that, Apple would like the price difference between the iPhone 14 Max and the iPhone 14 Pro to be not just $100.
As usual, this info is to be considered with caution since it does not come from an official source. Also, as TechRadar notes, @LeaksApplePro has made correct predictions in the past, but this is a source of leaks that should yet prove itself.
In any case, even with a higher price, it is possible that the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max still make you crack. Since the iPhone 13 series was just an improved version of the iPhone 12 series, Apple should be full of new stuff this year.
You will still buy it
And among the novelties there could be screens without notches. But the problem is that many reliable sources agree that these screens without notches will only be offered on the Pro models.
Besides that, Apple could also equip these Pro models with a 48-megapixel main sensor. In addition, Apple would equip the Pro models with 8 GB RAM memory instead of 6 GB. So it will be very difficult to resist.
In the meantime, Apple should also release a new iPhone SE this first half of 2022. It would be the first affordable, but 5G smartphone from the Cupertino company. And if it should be equipped with the latest premium A15 Bionic chip, the design would not change compared to the iPhone SE 2 released in 2020 (with the borders and the home button).
