iPhone 14 release date and price rumors

Typically, new iPhones launch a week and a half after the devices are first revealed. So judging by these timelines, that means the iPhone 14 release date could be Friday, September 16.

In terms of price, rumors are circulating that the iPhone 14 could usher in a price hike – the first of its kind in years.

It is believed that the base iPhone 14 will remain at the same price, but – according to MacRumors – iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will both get a $100 price hike in the US.

The iPhone Pro would drop from $999 to $1,099 while the Pro Max would drop from $1,099 to $1,199.

Apple is rumored to be helping iPhone fans shell out some extra cash by including exclusive features on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Leaks on iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro Max

Although we’ll have to wait and see, it’s rumored that many of the exciting upgrades coming to the iPhone 14 lineup will be exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.

First, in a change from previous iPhone launches, it’s believed that Apple’s latest and greatest silicon – the A16 Bionic chip – will only be available on the Pro and Pro Max.

Instead, the base iPhone 14 would feature the A15 Bionic that featured on the iPhone 13 lineup.

This chip is already blazingly fast and beats all other challengers in benchmark stats, but if you bought an iPhone 13 last year, that’ll give you one less reason to upgrade.

The invite to Apple’s “Far Out” event has also sparked speculation that satellite connectivity – which was previously supposed to debut with the iPhone 13 lineup – will be coming to the iPhone 14.

This supposed new feature will allow iPhone users to connect to a satellite when they lose their mobile signal in an emergency.

It is also believed that the satellites will be used for messaging in the Apple Messages app.

Alternatively, the “Far Out” invite could hint that astrophotography is coming to the iPhone 14, which would be ideal for stargazers looking to get a dazzling shot of the night sky.

Along with these features, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max spec sheet is expected to feature a number of other eye-catching additions.

It’s long been rumored that Apple will finally ditch the notch – which debuted with the iPhone X in 2017 – with its new iPhones.

Instead, a pill-shaped front camera setup is expected to be introduced. However, it is believed that this will only appear on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, while the entry-level iPhone 14 will stick with the notch.

If you’re wondering what this new selfie camera and display setup might look like, check out the mockups in this post courtesy LetsGoDigital.

The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are also expected to offer always-on display as another exclusive feature.

While this is the first time iPhones have always-on displays, it’s something Android users have come to appreciate for a long time.

The always-on screen for iPhones will display information such as time, date and battery percentage, while taking advantage of the new lock screen widgets in iOS 16.

The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are also rumored to feature a 48-megapixel rear camera that supports 8K video recording.

As always with rumours, it’s best to take claims with a huge spoonful of salt until official confirmation.

But thankfully, Apple fans don’t have long to wait to find out what the future holds with the big iPhone 14 revealed in a few days.

Express.co.uk will keep you up to date with all the announcements for the upcoming September 2022 Apple event and will post news as Cupertino goes.

If you prefer to save money and are happy to have an older device, you can always turn to an iPhone 13. The imminent release of a new iPhone usually means that good deals suddenly appear on the handset of the previous generation.
