In recent days, informed sources inside and outside the industry have exposed the appearance of the iPhone 14 series configuration. The price is also clear to you. But recently there was news that the iPhone 14 Max (i.e., iPhone 14 Plus) with a 6.7-inch screen was affected by the panel supply chain, the production schedule can not catch up with the original plan.
Earlier there was news that this iPhone 14 series has three-panel suppliers, respectively Samsung, LG and BOE, and LG will be the main supplier of this large-size iPhone, so it seems that there should be some problems with LG.
It is understood that the iPhone 14 series will bring four models of iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max this time.
However, some time ago the Korean media said that the iPhone 14 series will re-adopt the Plus naming, where the 6.7-inch non-Pro model of iPhone is also iPhone 14 Max will no longer use this name after the launch, but instead use iPhone 14 Plus (still written in iPhone 14 Max below).
On the screen parameters, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max use 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screens, respectively, which are also equipped with 120Hz ProMotion adaptive high brush screen.
And the protagonist of this article, the iPhone 14 Max, although also with the same 6.7-inch screen, but in order to distinguish it from the iPhone 14 Pro Max, iPhone 14 Max with 60Hz screen, but due to supply chain problems may lead to the iPhone 14 Max first batch of allotment less.
And this is the cheapest iPhone may appear as “a machine hard to find” situation, and even the scalper’s crazy price increase behavior.
According to the earlier speculated price blast, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are priced at $1099 and $1199 respectively.
This is $100 more expensive than last year’s iPhone 13 Pro series. The top version of the iPhone 14 Pro Max may sell for $1,699, and the China version may be a bit more expensive, which may make iPhone 14 Pro Max the most expensive iPhone in history.
For reference, the iPhone 13 Pro starts at 7,999 yuan (from $999) for the China version, the iPhone 13 Pro Max starts at 8,999 yuan (from $1099) for the China version and 12,999 yuan (from $1599) for the top version.
For reference, the iPhone 13 series starts at $5,199 (iPhone 13 mini version), and the iPhone 13 Pro Max 1TB version is priced at $12,999.
The price is not officially given any news, but according to the previous selling price, this price speculation and seems reasonable.
That said, although Apple faces the dilemma of insufficient first shipments when launching a new style of iPhone in each generation, the current situation seems to be a bit more serious than the previous shortage of iPhone 14 Max.
Although Apple has increased the production speed of the iPhone 14 Max and adjusted the first shipment ratios, some users said they could wait, but only if they could ensure quality and not mass production in order to catch up, or at the very least, not green screen again.
