Apple just held a big event and released the new iPhone 14 series. Like all Apple flagships in the past, these devices don’t come cheap.

There are tons of ways you can obtain a new iPhone 14, 14 Plus, or 14 Pro series. You can pay in cash, installments, etc. But what if you want to pay upfront? How long should you work hard for it? The analysts at Picodi have the answer.


First, let’s talk about the price. The base model iPhone 14 Pro with 128GB of storage has an SRP of Php70,990 in the Philippines.

Now, records show that the average net wage in the Philippines is Php16,401. Based on that number, it’s been calculated that a Filipino needs to work 90.9 days to purchase the latest iPhone 14 Pro. That is, of course, if all the money earned will be put into buying one.

This year’s number is 0.7 days higher than last year.

We’re still lucky, though as those in Turkey need to work 146.7 days just to own a base model iPhone 14 Pro. But if you live in Switzerland, you can buy an iPhone the fastest with an average of 4.6 days. You can check the full ranking below.


Alternatively, you can get the iPhone 14 or 14 Plus with their starting prices of Php56,990 and Php63,990, respectively.

You can also consider older iPhone models, which have dropped in price since the release of the newer versions.
