The new iPhone 14 line could hit the light of day on September 13th
That coincides with analysis that notes how Apple usually holds its new iPhone event during the first or second Tuesday in September. That would narrow down the unveiling to two dates, September 5th or September 6th. But every year in the states, the first Tuesday in September is preceded by Labor Day which falls on the first Monday of the month. Therefore, September 13th, iHacktu iLeaks’ guesstimate, could be right.
Twitter tipster says the iPhone 14 line will be unveiled on September 13th
Most likely pre-orders would begin the Friday after the event or September 16th with a possible release date of September 23rd. Sound good to you? We expect four models with the 5.4-inch iPhone mini replaced by the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus (or iPhone 14 Max). The remaining trio should include the 6.1-inch iPhone 14, the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Starting with the iPhone 14 series and moving forward into the future, the less expensive iPhone models will not receive the latest Apple A-series chip. That was one thing that iPhone buyers use to be able to count out no matter which new iPhone they bought and how much money they spent. Now, those buying the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus will not get the new A16 Bionic inside their phone; instead, their handsets will be powered by last year’s A15 Bionic.
The release date of the iPhone 14 series could be September 23rd
There have been some discussions about this with many figuring that those likely to buy the cheaper models are not enthusiasts and couldn’t tell the difference between the A16 Bionic chip and a potato chip. Furthermore, according to this theory, non-Pro buyers couldn’t name the chip being used to power their iPhone even if their lives depended on it. Somehow, this writer is not that sanguine about Apple selling a “new” iPhone with a reused chipset and charging consumers the price of a “new” phone.
The new Pro models will have a 120Hz refresh rate thanks to the ProMotion display, and we could see 20% thinner bezels on the iPhone 14 Pro Max. And to reiterate, the iPhone 14 Pro series should feature the A16 Bionic under the hood. Both Pro and non-Pro models will be equipped with 6GB of RAM. However, the more expensive units will feature the faster LPDDR5 RAM chips compared with the LPDDR4 component for the cheaper models.
For now, let’s go with a September 13th unveiling for the iPhone 14 series, a September 16th start to pre-orders, and a September 23rd release date. And it is all subject to change.
