The Apple iPhone 14 lineup is here. While the iPhone 14 is largely an iterative upgrade that doesn’t offer anything drastically new compared to the iPhone 13 (barring Crash Detection and Emergency SOS via Satellite), the iPhone 14 Pro models offer quad pixel binned cameras for advanced zoom, and a new notch design as well. It is the latter that also gets the new 4nm A16 Bionic chip, but all the new iPhones still retained the Lightning port.

Despite all of this, though, the new iPhones have gotten more expensive. This year, the entry-level iPhone 14 starts at Rs 79,900 in India – up from an entry price of Rs 69,900 for the iPhone 13 mini last year. Alongside a bigger ‘Plus’ model, factors such as global supply chain fluctuations are also believed to have had an impact – including on aspects such as the battery replacement cost of the new iPhones.

India is the third most expensive country in the world for new iPhones.
