Renowned analyst and insider, Ming-Chi Kuo, said in his recent tweet that there would be a price increase for the iPhone 14 lineup that would extend to all the four releases of the device. There are no confirmations yet from Apple, but it is something to expect for the iPhone 14 lineup, with as much as 15 percent more than its previous selling price.
Kuo attributed this new price increase to Hon Hai or Foxconn’s latest growth for the second quarter of the year, with the recent announcement of the company’s progress.
Hon Hai said that it achieved its highest revenue for the second quarter, with its performance seeing a “growing” trend, instead of the “roughly flat” predictions.

However, it would not apply to the iPhone 14 and the larger version that it would bring in the coming release, with speculations seeing its release with a 128GB base storage offer from Apple.
