The release of the Apple iPhone 14 is imminent, and Apple has already handed out invitations for its significant September event. However, the release date and other important details about the next iPhone lineup are still subject to internet rumors.Here is all the information you require.

The upcoming iPhone 14, according to rumours and leaks, will have a unique design, very similar to the iPhone 13 that is currently available. But the iPhone 14 Pro will have a lot of changes for the better, especially when it comes to the Apple silicon that was just released.

Apple is known for upgrading its processors every year, around the time that the company launches a new product line. For instance, Apple first introduced the A14 processor that is found in the iPhone 12 in the year 2020 and the A15 processor that is found in the iPhone 13 in the year 2021.

However, things are going to be different this year due to the fact that Apple’s iPhone 14 will most likely continue to use the A15 chip from the year before, and the A16 chipset will only be added to the iPhone Pro models. This is a change from previous years.

What’s the anticipated release date for the Apple iPhone 14 lineup?

The iPhone 14 is very likely going to make an appearance at Apple’s Far Out event, which is going to take place on September 7, 2022 at the Steve Jobs Theatre on Apple’s Park Campus in Cupertino, California. The event is scheduled to take place on September 7. We think that Apple will soon add a few new iPhone models to their lineup.

On the second Tuesday in September, which falls on September 13 this year, Apple is known to introduce new iPhone models. Max Weinbach, a source of information, had said before that the iPhone 14 could come out on September 6.

According to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, Apple will unveil the iPhone 14 on September 7 at a major event. Additionally, he stated that pre-orders would open on September 9, 2022, and that the new iPhones would be sold in stores starting on September 16, 2022.

Previous rumours claimed that the iPhone 14’s production got underway in July. The recent COVID lockdowns in China, however, are said to have forced the delay of one iPhone 14 model. Additionally, Apple is shifting a portion of the new devices’ production to India.

Design & Color Options for the iPhone 14

According to prior reports, the regular iPhone 14 would resemble its predecessor, the iPhone 13, in terms of appearance. The iPhone 14 Pro versions, on the other hand, will undergo a significant change as they will probably do away with the display notch in favour of two cutouts. However, the flat edge design will remain.

The front camera will have a circular cutout on the Apple iPhone 14 Pro models, and the Face ID sensors will have a pill-shaped cutout. These assertions are supported by recent renders and leaked supply chain images.

But a new leak says that the two holes that were thought to be there have been replaced by a single, bigger pill-shaped cut. The status of your microphone and cameras may also be shown in the space between the front camera and the Face ID module.

This also means that none of the iPhone 14 models will have Touch ID. However, this won’t be a problem because Apple has improved Face ID so that it can recognize a real user even if they are wearing a mask. Face ID is well-known for how well it works.

What colour options will the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro offer?

Recent leaks and renderings have also shown what colours the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro might come in. One source says that the Midnight, Starlight, and Product RED colours will still be available, but the blue will be changed to a lighter sky blue.

 

According to yet another Chinese source, the iPhone 14 Pro will not only be available in the three standard colors—graphite, silver, and gold—but also in a new colour edition that is described as having a dark purple finish. We were able to see the new colour options for the iPhone 14 Pro thanks to yet another leak, and they were displayed alongside the standard iPhone 14 in sky blue.

How will the iPhone 14 display look like?

The 6.1-inch display size of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro will remain the same. However, a larger model with the names “iPhone 14 Max” and “iPhone 14 Pro Max Plus” will be offered and has a 6.7-inch screen.

According to recent rumors, the Max version may be renamed Plus this year. Along with the iPhone 13 Mini, Apple has also discontinued the Mini line. There won’t be a 5.4-inch iPhone 14 Mini on the market.

According to a leak, the iPhone 14 will likely include an LTPO panel or an upgraded version of that display technology and will have a 120Hz refresh rate display this time. Last year, the Pro models were the only ones with a high refresh rate. The iPhone 13 only had a 60Hz display.

According to Mark Gurman, the iPhone 14 Pro will finally feature an always-on display that will display information such as the weather, calendars, stocks, and activities on the lock screen. In order to prolong battery life, it will feature a decreased refresh rate.

Specs and Features of the Rumored iPhone 14

The iPhone 14 will use the A15 CPU, while the iPhone 14 Pro will use the brand-new A16 Bionic chip. The four iPhone 14 variants will reportedly each have 6GB of RAM, according to speculation. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini from last year both have 4GB of RAM, so this will be an improvement.

Apple will maintain the regular storage capacity, which starts at 128GB and goes up to 1TB for Pro variations, but the basic models will employ LPDDR4X RAM, while the Pro models will feature the faster and more efficient LPDDR5 RAM.

Apple is reportedly planning to release an eSim-only model this year. This assertion was made by GlobalDate analyst Emma Mohr-McClune. However, the 5nm processor found in the future iPhone may prevent this from happening.

A move from the Lighting port to USB-C was also discussed. However, it might not occur right away. Apple is also making the speakers in the next iPhone series have more bass and be clearer.

What about the battery and the camera?

According to current reports, the iPhone 14 will have standard 12MP sensors rather than a significant camera boost. With the coming A16 chipset and the camera-focused features of iOS 16, the cameras in the iPhone 14 Pro models could be upgraded and made better.

All iPhone 14 versions, according to famed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, will include an improved front-facing camera. On the other hand, only the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will include a 48MP main camera to take photographs with more detail.

Another rumour says that the ultrawide cameras on the iPhone 14 Pro models will also get an update with a new 1.4 micrometers sensor.

According to insiders, all iPhone 14 models will receive a battery boost, with the exception of the iPhone 14 Pro Max. While the non-Pro models will continue to offer 20W fast charging, the Pro models will also get a jump to 30W charging.

Expected Price for the Apple iPhone 14 Lineup

The price of the iPhone 14 will probably be the same as that of the iPhone 13, which is currently available for £779/$799/AU$1349. But the price of the iPhone 14 Pro may go up because it has so many great new features, such as the newest chipset.

Accordingly, the iPhone 14 Pro will retail for $1,099 at launch, with the iPhone 14 Pro Max being the most expensive model at $1,199. According to the most recent rumors, the iPhone 14 Max or Plus will cost $899, which is $100 more expensive.

Only at the time of the device’s official introduction, which is most likely to happen at the Far Out showcase on September 7th, will the price of the iPhone 14 lineup be known with accuracy.

Should you wait for the Apple iPhone 14?

The wait for the iPhone 14 is, in fact, worthwhile. There are primarily two reasons for that. The first is that you can purchase the most recent iPhone within a few days, and the second is that you can save money on your plans to purchase earlier iPhone models.

When the Apple iPhone 14 launches, you’ll receive a discount on the iPhone 13. Therefore, if you don’t intend to purchase the new iPhone, it will still be worthwhile to hold off. Additionally, you’ll receive fantastic updates if you decide to purchase the most recent model.

You might be mistaken if you believe that the iPhone 14’s use of the A15 Bionic renders it somewhat less valuable. The A16 Bionic chip, the CPU from the previous year, is still the second most potent processor available.

It will be worthwhile to hold up until September 7 in order to see the release of the iPhone 14 lineup. What do you anticipate? Please feel free to share them in the comment section.
