Apple announced the new iPhone 14 series back in September with a lot of new changes and additions. While the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are selling like hotcakes, the same cannot be said for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus. According to the latest, Apple is considering lowering the price of next year’s iPhone 15 and the larger iPhone 15 Plus due to lower demand for the iPhone 14 and its ‘Plus’ variant. Scroll down to read more details on this topic.
Apple may see fit to lower the price of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus due to poor sales of the standard iPhone 14 series
As mentioned earlier, demand for the standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus remains low compared to the “Pro” models. The news is shared by yuex1122 on Naver, which indicates that Apple is considering lowering prices with the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus. Although it seems unlikely, it could represent a change that should work in Apple’s favour. This is because the company is widening the gap between the standard and “Pro” models and a wider price gap will make more sense for consumers.
iPhone 14 has little or no benefits over iPhone 13 which is a major reason why users should consider buying the latter directly from Apple for $200 less compared to the previous one. The iPhone 14 Plus is a $900 phone that only offers a larger screen and more battery capacity than the standard model. Customers can simply spend an extra $200 to jump on the iPhone 14 Pro Max which brings big changes to the table in terms of design, display, camera, A16 Bionic chip, and more.
According to a post by yeux1122 on Naver (translation), the declining sales of the iPhone 14 Plus “far exceed” even Apple’s lowest estimates and Apple is considering new strategies with the iPhone 15 to reverse the trend.
Apple plans to release its phones years in advance, so it is unlikely that it will cancel its plans for the iPhone 15 Plus. However, Apple is “seriously” considering lowering prices […]

The source now mentions how Apple will price the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus. However, if Apple plans to lower the price of the iPhone 15 Plus, it will have to lower the price of the iPhone 15 as well. If the company drops the price to $800 from $900, the “Plus” model will cost as much as the standard model. Going forward, the price of the standard iPhone 15 will drop to $700 — the same price Apple charges for the iPhone 13 mini.
That’s it guys. Do you think Apple will take drastic measures to reverse the impact of lower iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus sales? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
