The upcoming iPhone 14 could cost US$100 more than last year’s model, Webush Security analyst Dan Ives told The Sun.
“Prices have been increasing across the whole supply chain, and Cupertino needs to pass these costs to the consumer on this release.”
Part of the problem is that Apple is facing big costs when it comes to making the iPhone” he said.
Industry insider Ben Wood told The Sun that a price rise is possible – although Apple may ultimately decide against it.
