Apple is all set to launch the iPhone 14 series sometime around next  month. With the Apple iPhone launch nearby, there is a lot of interest  in the next iPhone series

Ahead of the launch, noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted that Apple may increase the prices of the iPhone with the iPhone 14 series. 

The analyst, however, estimated that the price of the iPhone 14 series may increase by 15 percent this year. This means that a $1,000 iPhone Pro model could be priced $1,050.

The price hike is said to be due to inflation and new features on the  iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models could have also driven the  price up.

It is also being said that the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will start have a minimum 256GB internal storage, which is double than the usual 128GB - that itself could lead to a price rise.

The new iPhone 14 series is said to come next month, and this year, Apple will introduce four models including the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

The Apple iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are said to come with a new design that will ditch the (un)popular notch, while the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max are said to retain the notch.
