The iPhone 14 Pro variants, not the base model, are the ones to buy this year, it is clear from all the leaks surrounding it. The price of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, the latter of which is a larger, “plus-sized” version of the iPhone 14, may increase this year, which may worry those looking to upgrade. While the price increase for the iPhone 14 Pro variants may still be acceptable, purchasers of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max may have more difficulty.
Apple claims that the iPhone has completely been redesigned, but how can Cupertino innovate with its flagship product? We’ll cover the price hikes, camera design, release date, price, and other details in this article, so let’s go over those things.
Is There A Price Hike For The iPhone 14?
There will probably be a US$ 100 price hike. Also, Cupertino must pass these costs along to the consumer with this release because prices have been rising throughout the entire supply chain. These could be the prices of the iPhone 14 generation, all taking into account the base variants, and compared to the launch prices of the iPhone 13 generation, excluding the iPhone 13 Mini.
- iPhone 14: The starting price is rumored to be $899, which is $100 more than the iPhone 13’s $799 price.
- iPhone 14 Max: The starting price, originally projected to be $899, could be $999.
- The base price of the iPhone 14 Pro could be $1,099. This is a $100 increase over the cost of the iPhone 13 Pro.
- iPhone 14 Pro Max: The price could start at $1,199, $100 more than the 128GB model of the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
What Are The Names Of The Product?
According to rumors, Apple is planning four devices for 2022 and will likely end its support for the Apple iPhone mini lineup. According to some recent rumors, the large, affordable iPhone is new, and it may be called the iPhone 14 Max or iPhone 14 Plus, effectively reviving the moniker Apple gave to its original 5.5-inch iPhone back in 2014.
An alleged iPhone 14 lineup is shown below:
- iPhone 14 6.1″ is the entry-level model and a logical upgrade from the iPhone 11, 12, and 13.
- A larger iPhone 14 with two cameras and a larger battery is called the iPhone 14 Max (Plus), which measures 6.7 inches.
- The triple-camera iPhone 14 Pro 6.1′′ has all the features of the standard iPhone 14 in a more manageable package.
- The largest iPhone 14 Pro with premium features and longer battery life is the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max.

What Will The iPhone 14 Camera Be Like?
Although the ultra-wide and telephoto cameras in later iPhones are likely to benefit from the improved camera technology, the main wide-angle camera is most likely to benefit from the larger sensor first. The Pro models will always be in front, of course. Both direct 48MP output and 12MP (four cells merge output mode) output may be supported simultaneously by the new 2H22 iPhone. The new 2H22 iPhone’s CIS pixel size increases to about 2.5um with 12MP output, making it significantly larger than the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, as well as existing Android smartphones.
It is also very close to the DSC level. The camera sensor would be the biggest ever installed on an Apple iPhone. It should deliver excellent low-light image quality because of quad pixel-binning, which would work fantastically with the Night mode of the iPhone 14. It appears that Sony will provide these new sensors, whereas LG will be in charge of making the actual camera modules for the iPhone 14 itself. Additionally, the new sensor should enable the main camera to record 8K video. iPhones can currently record only 4K video at 60 frames per second. However, according to insiders, 8K may not actually debut this year, so we are unsure. However, Apple will incur higher costs due to all of these useful camera upgrades, which will most likely be passed on to the consumer. It makes sense to assume that the top-tier iPhone 14 Pro/Pro Max will be the first to receive the updated camera technology.
However, a new front camera with auto-focusing is anticipated for each of the four iPhone 14 models. This would be a welcome upgrade since the front camera on all previous iPhones was fixed-focus and would allow you to take selfies and make video calls with a wider depth of field. According to leaked information, the new front camera will have an f/1.9 aperture as opposed to the f/2.2 aperture that was previously present. This should allow more light to enter. They do not, however, mention the resolution.
What Will The iPhone 14 Look Like?
What will the 14th-generation iPhone look like? In general, we don’t anticipate any particularly significant design changes, so you can anticipate that the iPhone 14 series will largely resemble the iPhone 13 series. Aside from the horizontal “i”-shaped hole-punch cutout replacing the notch on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, which will be removed.
According to rumors, the thicker camera islands on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be caused by the larger camera sensor. As expected, the thicker camera bump is due to the new 48MP camera, which is expected to replace the 12MP main sensor. According to Kuo, the 48MP module will have a diagonal length between 25 and 35 percent larger than the 12MP camera and a height between 5 and 10 percent greater than the primary unit on the iPhone 13 Pro.
iPhone 14 Release Date
Cupertino has no concrete release date for the iPhone, they haven’t made an official announcement. However, pundits and specialized reporters have floated September 13 and 14, 2022, for its release.
