Reports claim that Apple is currently worried about how poor the iPhone 14 Plus is performing on the market. Due to this, the Cupertino company is looking to make some important changes to avoid such disappointing occurrence in the iPhone 15 lineup.
The iPhone 14 Plus Was Meant to Solve the iPhone 13 Mini Problem
The iPhone 14 Plus came in as the latest addition to the iPhone family. It came as a replacement for the iPhone 12 mini and 13 mini. These phones also performed poorly when it comes to sales. So Apple decided to bring the iPhone 14 Plus to correct the issue. But things turned out worse than the previous edition.
The iPhone 14 Plus comes with the same design and features like the iPhone 14 standard model. The only difference is that the iPhone 14 Plus features a larger screen and bigger battery. It is also more expensive than the base model.
According to a post by yeux1122 on Naver, Apple is not happy. And has started to reevaluate how it will handle both the Pro and non Pro models in the iPhone 15 series.
Apple Considering A Solution For the iPhone 14 Plus Poor Sales
According to the post, Apple currently has two ideas on the table. They are evaluating on which of the two is the best way to go.
Gizchina News of the week
The first one which was previously rumored by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests that the company will further differentiate between the pro and the non-pro model.
Another option is to reduce the price of the iPhone 14 Plus model. Currently, the device starts at $899. But the post further states that reducing the price of the iPhone 15 Plus will also mean that the standard edition will also reduce in price.
The standard iPhone 14 has a starting price of $799. It is either Apple reduces the price of the standard model as well or shrinks the difference in prices. In my opinion, I think Apple can slightly increase the price of the standard iPhone 15 while reducing the price of the iPhone 15 Plus. In this case, both phones will have the same price. Some users prefer bigger phones while others prefer smaller size. So you can only choose your preference not based on the price.
Apple still has some time to decide since the iPhone 15 is almost a year away. Apple will definitely come up with a solution even before the launch of the iPhone 15. Along the line, if anything comes up concerning this topic, we will share the news.
