If it's a $100 increase then I can live with that. But if the starting price for the Pro Max end up being around $1249 when factoring the 15% price hike I've been hearing about, I may as well just buy the 13 pro max instead.
Apple's costlier iPhone 14 Pro could start at the same 128GB storage as the 13 Pro after all

Also with Motorola's "Ready for". You can easily hook it up to a big screen, TV, monitor, or a PC via wireless, or by USB-C cable. Think of it like Samsung's Dex only its Motorola's version. Its pretty good too.

At this point, 128GB is barely enough storage considering the size of apps these days and higher picture quality. 256 should be the minimum from now on. I've always bought 512GB to be on the safe side anyway so i'm good with this rumored change
Even if Apple raises iPhone 14 pricing, you might not pay more for the Pro models

My guess is they got rid of the Buds Pro to get people to buy the new version of them, meanwhile the Lives probably aren't selling well so they need to try to get rid of inventory.

In the USA, I do believe there is a "duopoly", Samsung & Apple. There are MANY different smartphones in the world, but for the most part, in the USA, if you go to a phone store, Best Buy, Walmart, Target etc, you pretty much only see Apple & Samsung. I think there are several reasons for that. You know Apple & Samsung probably spend a LOT of money making sure carriers & stores promote their brands over other brands. Another is you can probaby expect those two, to also spend a lot of money on the K street lobbyist that lobby to congress & the FCC to "make it harder" to get the other devices into the USA. Then there is probably a license fee or something imposed, on the frequencies used in the USA, that the modem manufacturers & phone producers just say screw it, it isn't worth it. If they don't have the frequencies, then there isn't any reason to promote them in the USA. Unless a carrier does something like Oppo did in 2014 when they created OnePlus and offer a phone with pretty good specs (at the time), with a pretty cheap price and the marketing tricks to create a "brand loyalty", not many of these manufacturers have a chance.In 2014, most people in the USA had never heard of Oppo. With the uptick of OnePlus phones, now they are sort of a common name brand in the USA, although just a carrier here and there has the OnePlus phones in stock.Until any none Samsung/Apple manufacturer comes along with something unique, different and dependable, most people will continue to buy Apple/Samsung because that's what the carrier and other stores will continue to promote.
