This year, Apple decided to revive its iPhone Plus series once again with the release of iPhone 14 Plus. This device, which was previously thought to be released under the name iPhone 14 Max; It’s basically the same iPhone 14 with a bigger size. Apple has used a larger 6.7-inch screen and a higher capacity battery in this smartphone. However, regardless of these 2 features, the iPhone 14 Plus has the same features as the standard iPhone 14 model.
This handset will be launched to compensate for the failures of iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini. Apple realized that most of the customers were not interested in the smaller iPhone models and the high acceptance of the Pro Max model finally made the Cupertino giant decide to release a low-end iPhone with a larger size. However, iPhone 14 Plus will probably mark another failure for Apple.
The basic performance of iPhone 14 Plus is similar to Apple’s iPhone mini series
According to the report published by Ming Chiku; The famous analyst of Apple issues, the first set of iPhone orders will be mainly dedicated to the iPhone 14 Pro series models. Apparently 85% of registered pre-orders belong to larger iPhone models. Also, the share of iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 models from the pre-sale of new Apple handsets is 5 and 10 percent, respectively.
The poor performance of the iPhone 14 Plus in pre-sale brings to mind the mood of Apple’s mini iPhones. Of course, it is still too early to judge in this regard; But it seems that the iPhone 14 Plus could be another failure for Apple. Mr. Ko points out that this phenomenon is common in the first stage of iPhone sales. However, he admits that iPhone Pro sales have increased slightly compared to previous years.
Obviously, this shows the differences between the specifications of the iPhone Pro and non-Pro models. It is still unclear why Apple decided to release a weaker flagship iPhone. However, experts believe that the Cupertino giant has analyzed the growing inflationary crisis in the world and economic instability and has finally reached such a conclusion. Despite this, iPhone fans are still looking to buy more expensive models of the iPhone 14 Pro series. Of course, this approach can be changed. Only a few days have passed since the launch of the iPhone 14 series; Therefore, it is still too early to make any definitive comments about the popularity of the iPhone 14 Plus.
Users still show more desire to buy Pro iPhones
It is worth noting that despite the significant differences in the specifications of the Pro and non-Pro models, the difference in the pricing of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus with the iPhone 14 Pro is not very significant. In fact, customers would probably prefer to pay a little more to buy a geometry with real and tangible improvements. This upgrade seems much more logical for current iPhone 13 users; Because these people will not experience any significant upgrade by purchasing iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Plus. In contrast, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max benefit from a newer processor, improved camera system, and a new design with a dynamic island.
In any case, as announced earlier; It is still too early to issue any definitive verdict. After all, although the initial reception of iPhone 14 Plus does not seem so ideal; But with the start of sales of this handset in global markets in the near future, this perspective will probably change.
