The iPhone 14 will have a price increase over the iPhone 13 , says analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

most expensive iPhone
According to the report, it is considered that the iPhone 14 would maintain an average value of 1,000 and 1,050 dollars.
Kuo blames the price increase on price increases in the manufacture of the Pro and Pro Max models.
If it happens, Foxconn would be one of the biggest winners from the price increase due to the increased price and higher shipping ratio of the iPhone 14 Pros . They are the main electronic manufacturing service for this series, with a 70% share of orders.
Hon Hai/Foxconn is one of the winners of the increased ASP of iPhone 14 series. I estimated iPhone 14 series ASP would increase by about 15% (vs. iPhone 13 series ASP) to $1,000-1,050 (USD) due to two iPhone 14 Pro’s price hikes & higher shipment proportion. https://t.co/UgiW0kom4F

Everything points to the rise
Other sources have also claimed that the next iPhones will be priced higher, including Taiwanese research firm TrendForce. The firm predicts that iPhone 14 Pro models will start with 256GB of storage to justify the price increase.
In June, Wedbush Securities analyst Dave Ives told The Sun that he expects the iPhone 14 to cost $100 more than the iPhone 13 due to price increases affecting the global supply chain. Meanwhile, a rumor from Korean leaker Lanzuk suggests that Apple will only increase the price of the Pro models, not the base iPhone 14 .
While the base iPhone 14 is expected to come with an upgraded 48MP rear camera and autofocus selfie camera, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models are rumored to get the bulk of the upgrades. The Pro and Pro Max may ditch the notch that houses the front-facing camera in favor of a pill-shaped hole-punch cutout, will come equipped with the new A16 chip , and support an always-on display.
Of course, they would be the last to maintain a Lightning charging port .
