As a horrifying recession warnings are being sounded in the UK and traders call for an emergency interest rate hike, the UK chancellor's tax-cutting mini-budget has triggered a record fall in the Pound currency against the US dollar. This will impact the price of goods and services as well as cost of living and in turn will light the inflation fire. Technology goods, like iPhone 13, iPhone 14, or for that matter, any phones that are made outside UK, will get more expensive. This might be bad news for those who love their iPhones as British companies import goods in dollars, and will have to pass that price on to the buyers. So, if you're planning to buy a new iPhone, be careful- prices may just shoot up.

This year, Apple has already raised the launch price of its new iPhone range in Britain by up to £150 from its previous year's iPhone 13, due to the weak pound. The latest iPhone 14 Pro price starts at £1099 which is a 16% for hike from iPhone 13 Pro launch price of £949 in 2021.

In the UK, the base iPhone 14 starts at £849, whereas iPhone 14 Plus is priced at £949, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro max begin from £1099 and £1199 respectively.
