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 increased by 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 (Rp 11.4 million). The newcomer variant of the iPhone 14 Max will reportedly be priced at USD 899 (Rp 12.8 million).
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).
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.
