A new leak says Apple decided to freeze the iPhone 14 launch price. And will see a price hike. Apple leaks have constantly agreed on one thing, iPhone 14 models are getting more costly. Until now. In the latest blog post, anonymous leaker Lanzuk has revealed that Apple decided to freeze the iPhone 14 launch price through a decision at the top executive level. And given Lanzuk’s accurate track record, there’s every reason to accept this.
Why did Apple decided to freeze the iPhone 14 launch price?
Lanzuk explains that Apple’s decision Apple decided to freeze the iPhone 14 launch price was based on “global mobile phone market stagnation and demand decline. So the price of the basic model is frozen despite some price increase factors.”
Detailed by other leakers, these factors entail an increase in component prices because of shortages and Apple advancing several vital elements of the iPhone 14 line-up. Most significantly, an all-new front-facing camera module from LG Innotek, which leaks claim is triple the price of its predecessor.
In these leaks, Apple decided to freeze the iPhone 14 launch price might be actual.
Lanzuk is apprehensive of the shock and potential disbelief his news will generate and stresses that his information comes from a rock-solid source within a “major US financial institution.” also, Lanzuk has a track record that deserves regard. While the insider has had the occasional miss, there have been several accurate leaks for both Apple and Samsung devices in the last year.
Another good news has leaked regarding the iPhone 14’s launch.
08/05 Update another piece of information has leaked regarding the iPhone 14’s launch, and it’s. Influential analyst and industry insider Ming-Chi Kuo reports that Apple has successfully expanded production of the forthcoming base model in India before the release.
“Foxconn’s iPhone production point in India will ship the makeshift6.1” iPhone 14 nearly simultaneously with China for the first time in 2H22(India being one quarter or further behind in history),” explained Kuo. “In the brief term, India’s iPhone capacities shipments still have a significant gap with China, but it’s an important milestone for Apple in building an anon-Chinese iPhone product site.”
My connections believe this strategy will deliver an immediate pay-off, with Apple suitable to supply substantial stock of the iPhone 14 for its September release. Contrasts starkly with the ongoing supply chain issues faced by the iPhone 14 Max. While Kuo expects the new 6.7- inch model to launch alongside the rest of the range, Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants(DSCC), has alerted that “iPhone 14 Max panel shipments (are) still way before through August.”
So if you plan to buy Apple’s most inexpensive big-screen new iPhone to date, I suspect you’ll have to move fast when they go on sale.
The launch price of the iPhone 14 base model.
Still, Lanzuk’s claim would mean the iPhone 14 keeps its $799 asking price (instead of jumping to$899), which also builds hope that the new iPhone 14 Max will also $100 lower at$899, If correct. These price points make sense, presenting Apple’s determination Apple decided to freeze the iPhone 14 launch price to widen the feature and performance gap to iPhone 14 Pro models, which are still expected to go up in price.
iPhone 14 Pro- $1099(iPhone 13 Pro $999).
iPhone 14 Pro Max-$1199 (iPhone 13 Pro Max- $1099).
I would argue that Lanzuk’s claim quietly equates to an efficient $100 price raise across the range. Because the $799 Apple iPhone, 14 will replace the $699 iPhone 13 Mini as the entry-level model, and the $899 iPhone 14 Max will take the place of the $799 iPhone 13, given their respective increases in screen size, these rises are also easier for Apple to market to customers.
Price freeze reasoning
The source says possible reasons for the Apple decided to freeze the iPhone 14 launch price could be the global mobile phone market stagnation and demand decline, as well as price being the most significant factor for purchasing intent-sound reasoning indeed.
Will iPhone 14 lineup be worth it? Design, camera, and performance advancements on the Pro models appear, but with a potential transition from Lightning to USB-C in 2023, I would still urge caution if you don’t have to upgrade this year. for that, Apple decided to freeze the iPhone 14 launch price.
