As excitement builds for the iPhone 14, we can say with great confidence that Apple hasn’t started pre-orders for the product yet. But that doesn’t mean excited fans can’t put their money where their mouth is…if they have enough of that money.
Customized iPhone maker Caviar has revealed its iPhone 14 collection (opens in new tab), with 13 different exorbitant rounds on Apple’s next smartphone. They range from the $9,500 Champagne Rose model you can see above, with stingray leather and titanium, to a $22,620 Gold Champagne Crystal model that includes lots of gold jewelry and nine diamonds.
Most of these devices are of limited run, with only 99 models being manufactured. You can choose whether to get an iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max version – the latter pushes the price even higher.
It’s worth noting that the iPhones shown in these photos are likely not accurate to what the iPhone 14 looks like – they look based on the iPhone 13 Pro. Caviar is probably using this phone as a placeholder to showcase the designs.
Caviar is no stranger to wild, wacky, and incredibly expensive smartphones – we’ve also seen the company make a $27,000 Steve Jobs iPhone, $8,600 Dinosaur iPhone (with real fossil), $6,900 iPhone made from original iPhones and many other crazy creations for people with a lot of money.
If you’re interested in these new models – and have a lot of money to spend – you can pre-order them now, but it’s unclear whether you’ll get the phone once the iPhone 14 goes on sale or later.
Review: It’s Probably Not Your Only Way to Get an iPhone 14
If you’re super excited about the iPhone 14 but don’t have $10,000 in your pocket, you can easily ignore Caviar’s offerings.
The existence of these phones won’t affect the availability of the final models, and you’ll still have plenty of time to pre-order them if Apple follows its usual pattern of making them available for pre-order a week or so before they go on sale.
If you’ve got the money for those expensive iPhones – and you’ve run out of charities to donate or people to help – maybe you can enjoy the most forgiving phone you’ve ever seen. But there are probably better things to buy than a gold and diamond iPhone 14 Pro Max.
