There are very few days left to officially see the iPhone 14, which will presumably appear in stores in mid-September if logistics allow. Many of you will be preparing for it, but this year you have to take more into account a factor that we are not going to like too much: the price.
The price of the MacBook Air M1 is just a glimpse
Ming-Chi Kuo already predicted it a few weeks ago: if you plan to buy an iPhone 14 you will have to prepare your portfolio. We have skyrocketing inflation, and the difference between wages and the CPI has never been so great in Spain. The icing on the cake is the change between the euro and the dollar, whose value has reached parity.
We have already seen the consequences with the launch of a MacBook Air M2 at MacBook Pro prices and the price increase of a MacBook Air M1 despite being a computer that is already two years old. That’s why we advise buying computers like a Mac mini M1 right now, and that’s why we predict that the rise in prices of the iPhone 14 is going to give a lot to talk about.
If right now we are looking for the most expensive iPhone we can buy, we go to the iPhone 13 Pro Max with 1 TB of space, which costs us 1,839 euros. Adding all the factors that I just mentioned, I wouldn’t be surprised to see an iPhone 14 Pro Max for more than 2,000 euros. And while the economic situation does not improve, it will be something that we are going to have to get used to.
In any case, we are talking about the most expensive iPhone, we will always have a model at more affordable prices. How affordable? Well, we will see it as soon as the Apple website is updated with the official information on the iPhone 14, which will happen as soon as the event next Wednesday is over.
