Rumors of iPhone 14 Pro Will Be More Expensive and Have 2 Holes in the Screen


The iPhone 14 is one of the most awaited gadgets for its launch this year. But bad news for Apple fanboys, the iPhone 14 line will be sold at a higher price than its predecessor.

Not all iPhone 14 models will experience a price increase. According to leaks from tipster LeaksApplePro, the variants that will be sold at a higher price are the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

These two models will be launched at a price of USD 1,099 and USD 1,199 respectively. This means that the price of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max rose USD 100 from the previous generation, as quoted from Tom's Guide, Thursday (13/1/2022).

Meanwhile, the standard version of the iPhone 14 remains the same at USD 799. The newcomer variant of the iPhone 14 Max will reportedly be priced at USD 899.

14: $799

14 Max: $899

14 Pros: $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.

LeaksApplePro said the increase in the price of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max was caused by the rising production price. He also stressed that this price is still being considered by Apple and has not been officially decided.

In addition to leaks about the price, this week was also enlivened with rumors about the design of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. These two phones have long been rumored to be carrying a punch-hole screen design, and now the clues about their shape have been seen.

Consultant from DSCC Ross Young said the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will have two holes in the screen with different shapes. There is a round hole that houses the Face ID dot projector, and a pill-shaped hole that will house the front camera and infrared camera for Face ID, as quoted from MacRumors, Thursday (13/1/2022).

We now believe Apple will have a hole + pill design on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models. The smaller hole will not be invisible...The two hole concept will be unique to Apple, like the notch, not similar to all the pill models from Huawei...Let's see those new renders

With the cutouts for the round and pill-shaped holes, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max likely won't store the Face ID sensor under the screen as previously circulated. Young himself has a pretty good track record of leaking Apple products, but of course all these rumors have not been confirmed directly.

If it's in line with previous years, Apple is likely to introduce the iPhone 14 next fall. So we still have to wait quite a while to prove the accuracy of these leaks.
