According to Display analyst Ross Young, Apple’s iPhone 14 Max may be in short supply when it launches in the fall. This means that getting one on the first few days it’s available will be especially difficult for Apple fans.
This year, Cupertino is expected to release four new iPhone 14 models, including the iPhone 14 Max. According to rumors, the iPhone 14 Max will replace the iPhone 13 Mini and will be approximately the same size as the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Young claims that shipments of display panels for the new models are “way behind” where they should be. The iPhone 14 Max appears to have a unique display component. While it will be the same size as the iPhone 14 Pro Max, it will not have Apple’s ProMotion technology. Young’s claim, according to 9to5Mac, is based on much more recent supply chain data.
The iPhone 14 Max is the most anticipated smartphone of the year, and there are a variety of reasons why consumers are so excited about this model. The iPhone 14 Max is said to have a 6.7-inch display, making it the same size as the iPhone 13 Pro Max and thus likely the same size as the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Customers want a larger-screen iPhone, but not everyone can afford the iPhone 13 Pro Max. If Apple launches the iPhone 14 Max at $899, it will be $300 less expensive than the iPhone 14 Pro Max, which is expected to cost $1,199 for the base model. The difference in price between the iPhone 14 Pro Max and the iPhone 14 are both $300. Max may drive demand for the 6.7-inch iPhone, which is more ‘affordable’ to mainstream smartphone users.
According to multiple leaks, rising component costs and Apple’s new strategy to differentiate between “pro” and “non-pro” models will drive up the prices of new iPhones this year. The iPhone 14 series will see a price increase of at least $100. According to Dan Ives, CEO of analyst firm Wedbush Securities. Prices have risen throughout the supply chain, and Cupertino must pass these costs on to the consumer with this release,” Ives told The Sun.
Apple will release two standard iPhones, the iPhone 14 and the all-new iPhone 14 Max, as well as two Pro models. The iPhone 14 and 14 Max will have a notch, while the pro models will have a pill-shaped cut-out for FaceID. The Pros will have a new A16 chip to differentiate them from the “non-pro” models. Meanwhile, the A15 chip that powers the iPhone 13 will power the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, standard iPhone 14 models will share far fewer Pro features than previous generations, which means they won’t have the new 48MP wide-angle camera seen on iPhone 14 Pro models.
Although nothing has been confirmed as of yet, the iPhone 14 series could be announced on September 13. Apple usually releases new iPhones in September, which marks the start of the busy holiday shopping season in the United States.
