Apple is now speculated to make available the base model of the upcoming iPhone 14 at the same $799 price point as the last year’s iPhone 13.
According to a rumor come from a post written by a user “yeux1122” on the Korean blog Naver, Apple is not planning to increase the price of the base model of its forthcoming flagship 6.1-inch iPhone.
The previous rumors suggested that the pricing of the entire iPhone 14 lineup will be up by at least $100 owing to the chip shortages and supply chain constraints globally.
However, according to a person, the main reason behind not increasing the price of the entry-level iPhone 14 is to boost sales amid the global smartphone market notable slowdown.
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max are strongly expected to feature the same A15 Bionic chip as their predecessors but they will still come with increased performance due to increased memory and a new more efficient model as well as internal design changes.
The Pro models will be powered by Apple’s newest A16 Bionic processor, an even bigger camera module to include to 48MP sensor, and exclusively feature an always-on display. The entire lineup will be unveiled next month.
