iPhone 14 Pro is Unlikely to Go Beyond 1TB, Analyst Claims


Apple iPhone 14 Pro storage is unlikely to go higher than the 1TB maximum option of its predecessor, the iPhone 13 Pro, an analyst recently predicted.

The all-new iPhone 14 series has yet to officially see the light of day. And as such, rumors and various predictions have sprouted like mushrooms as the upcoming flagship device nears its launch.

One of the most-awaited upgrades in new smartphones is the storage options. Apps, specifically mobile games, have consistently increased their sizes as more features arrive.

Apple iPhone 14 Storage: Is It Getting Bigger?

While Apple auspiciously introduced the iPhone 13 Pro with a massive 1 terabyte (TB) storage, some fans are wondering if the Cupertino-based tech giant is looking to go further.

However, an analyst predicts that Apple is skipping any storage upgrades for its upcoming mobile devices, the iPhone 14 series.

Apple Inc.’s iPhone 11, iPhone11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max smartphones are displayed in the Apple Marunouchi store on September 20, 2019 in Tokyo, Japan. Apple launched the latest iPhone 11 models featuring a dual-camera system today.

According to a recent report by Tech Radar, the Haitong International analyst, Jeff Pu, believes that the renowned phone maker is unlikely to give its upcoming mobile device a storage boost.

The analyst went on to predict all the storage options that Apple is giving its new iPhone 14 Pro.

Pu reports that it would still come with a 128GB option for the base Pro variant, whereas the maximum storage would go as high as 1TB. There are middle choices too, including 256GB and 512GB options.

As per the latest news by Mac Rumors, the recent prediction of Pu comes shortly after another reputable analyst claims that the all-new iPhones are getting more expensive.

Ming-Chi Kuo hinted that the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro devices would get price increases, making them less affordable when compared to the older siblings, the iPhone 13 Pro models.

However, it is worth noting that Kuo failed to give explicit numbers regarding the price hike that he disclosed.

Instead, the analyst only stated that all of the upcoming iPhone variants are jacking up their prices by roughly 15 percent more than their current pricing.

Kuo states that the hike is due to various factors, which include the current economic situation, not to mention that Apple is introducing new fancy features.

Mac Rumors notes in its report that the most expensive offering right now, the iPhone 13 Pro Max, already retails for a staggering $1,099.

So if the next Apple flagship phones are getting price hikes, the high-end variant might sell for around $1,199. But it is to note that the Cupertino giant has yet to officially give away the pricing details of its upcoming devices.
