Apple’s next iPhone might be more expensive

Apple could make the upcoming iPhone 14 more expensive than the iPhone 13, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

For reference, the standard iPhone 13 model starts at $799 (with carrier discounts),

while the Pro and Pro Max models bump that price up to $999 and $1,099,

respectively. While Kuo doesn’t mention price predictions for individual devices,

he thinks the ASP of the iPhone 14 lineup (Pro models included) could hover around $1,000 to $1,050.

Kuo blames the ASP increase on a potentially more expensive iPhone Pro and Pro Max, as well as a “higher shipment proportion.”

In June, Wedbush Securities analyst Dave Ives told The Sun that he expects the iPhone 14 to cost $100 more than the iPhone 13 due to price increases affecting the global supply chain.

Meanwhile, a rumor from Korean leaker Lanzuk suggests that Apple will only raise the price of the Pro models, not the base iPhone 14.

While the base iPhone 14 is expected to come with an improved 48-megapixel rear-facing camera and a selfie camera with autofocus,
