The 8GB mannequin was dropped in worth by $200 to $399 whereas the 16GB variant was priced at $499.

And in line with TrendForce which talked about it again in June, this 12 months the essential Professional fashions will include at the very least 256GB of storage. It is one other distinction between the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Professional fashions that Apple hopes will drive extra shoppers to choose up one of many costlier Professional items.
For instance, Apple plans on powering the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max (or Plus) with the presently used A15 Bionic chipset. The 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Professional and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Professional Max might be geared up with the model new A16 Bionic chipset. The older chip is constructed by TSMC utilizing its second-generation 5nm course of node, whereas the A16 Bionic might be manufactured utilizing the foundry’s 4nm course of node.
The smaller the method node quantity, the upper the transistor rely in a chip. Which means that the A16 Bionic ought to include greater than the 15 billion transistors present in its predecessor. Because of this, the newer chip ought to be extra highly effective and energy-efficient.

Different variations embody the brand new “i cutouts” within the Professional fashions to switch the notch which can stay on the non-Professional items. The Professional fashions may even get a 48MP Vast rear digital camera with 8K recording capabilities versus the 12MP sensor on the non-Professional telephones. Whereas all iPhone 14 fashions get 6GB of storage, the Professional fashions will use the sooner LPDDR5 RAM chip in comparison with the LPDDR4X RAM that might be discovered on the non-Professional variants.

Technically, the worth of the 256GB Professional fashions would possibly stay the identical

Apple is predicted to introduce the iPhone 14 collection in just a little over 4 weeks from now and high Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo sees the MSRP for the road rising 15% partly as a result of 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max changing the cheaper 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini. The opposite motive for the worth hike has to with the anticipated enhance within the worth of the iPhone 14 Professional fashions which may begin at $1,099 for the iPhone 14 Professional and  $1,199 for the iPhone 14 Professional Max, $100 greater than the beginning worth of the iPhone 13 Professional and iPhone 13 Professional Max.
Here is the factor. The rumored pricing of $1,099 and $1,199 for the iPhone 14 Professional and iPhone 14 Professional Max respectively would match the pricing of the 256GB iPhone 13 Professional and iPhone 13 Professional Max. And if Apple does resolve to supply 256GB of storage as the essential configuration for the 2022 Professional fashions, that may imply that pricing may truly stay the identical for the 256GB iPhone 14 Professional and iPhone 14 Professional Max.

To sum issues up: Apple could possibly be rising the typical price of the iPhone 14 collection by changing the bottom priced iPhone 13 mini with the costlier iPhone 14 Max, and would possibly eradicate the lowest-priced Professional mannequin by having the bottom mannequin begin with 256GB of storage. However this worth rise may nonetheless be achieved if Apple retains the worth of the 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB Professional fashions the identical,.

If TrendForce is true and the iPhone 14 Professional fashions begin with 256GB of storage, we might count on the opposite choices to incorporate 512GB and 1TB.
