In a new post on Medium, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have seen “neutral” and “good” pre-order results compared to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
However, he adds that delivery wait times of more than four weeks may indicate good demand for the new high-end devices. Kuo says it’s”unclear” whether Apple will increase shipment forecasts of its Pro models, but there’s a “growing” chance that it will cut orders of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, which account for around 45% of iPhone 14 shipments.
Customers can pre-order all models of the iPhone 14 lineup on apple.com and on the Apple Store app. iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max models will be available in stores and for delivery starting Friday, September 16. The iPhone 14 Plus will be available in stores and for delivery beginning Friday, October 7.
Apple says that customers can save up to US$1,000 on the iPhone 14 lineup with trade-in — either online at apple.com or at an Apple Store — when they activate their device with select US carriers. For terms, eligibility requirements, and more details, see apple.com/shop/buy-iphone/carrier-offers.
Apple also says that the Apple Trade In program is quick and simple. Customers can receive up to $720 in credit toward their purchase when they trade in an eligible Apple device. Customers can choose between an instant credit toward a future purchase, or an Apple Gift Card they can use anytime on apple.com or at their local Apple Store.
For those trading in products from home, Apple will send a prepaid trade-in kit to package and mail in the old device. As always, if the device isn’t eligible for credit, Apple will recycle it for free.
