iPhone 14 South African prices revealed



South Africans will have to dig a lot deeper into their pockets if they want Apple’s new range of iPhone 14 smartphones.

The iStore has revealed the South African pricing for the Cupertino company’s smartphones and they do not come cheap.

Preorders for the range opened on 16 September.

iPhone 14 vs iPhone 13

Apple unveiled the new Apple iPhone range during the ‘Far Out’ event earlier this month.

Compared to last year’s iPhone 13 range, the new iPhone costs a lot more, depending on the storage capacity and the model.

Trade-in

iStore said its trade-in programme will also be available to assist with upgrading to the new iPhone.

Through the trade-in programme, customers can own an iPhone 14 Pro for as little as R7,699 when trading in their old iPhone.

This is dependent on the device being traded in, however.

The iPhone 14 pre-orders on contract are also now open via Vodacom, MTN or Telkom.

These upgrades include a free extended warranty and screen replacement valued at R1,999.

Separately, iStore is offering a free R1,000 iStore gift card to the first 1,000 customers to pre-order the iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone Pro Max.

The first 1,000 customers to pre-order the iPhone 14 will get a free R500 iStore gift card.

Apple Watch

The iStore has also opened up pre-orders for other products, like the Apple Watch, starting at R5,999 for the SE and going up to R17,999 for the stainless-steel Series 8.
