- The leak also tips the iPhone 14 Max price.
For the past few years, we’ve been learning a lot about certain smartphones prior to their official reveals. At this point, it has become the norm to know the notable details about a phone before its manufacturer announces it. We have to admit, that this makes introduction keynotes somewhat mundane and uninteresting. After all, the surprise element is no longer there — for the most part at least. The case of the iPhone 14 is no different. The phone’s release is months away, and we already know what it could look like. That’s in addition to some details regarding the technologies it will pack. Here’s everything we know about the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max — the base models of 2022’s lineup.
The iPhone 14 series is slated to debut in September
The iPhone 14 series is slated to debut in September, most likely in the second week of the month. The exact launch date is still to be confirmed, but two iPhone 14 variants are expected to be released in the near future, according to the newest report. Now, The iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be delayed by one month, according to Ross Young of DSCC.
Also, The iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max are expected to be available for purchase two weeks following their official release, however, this may not be the case. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro, as well as the other two versions, will be available for purchase shortly following the debut. As a result, those who are anticipating the iPhone 14 Max and the series’ top-end model will have to wait a little longer.
iPhone 14 rumors at a glance
- Four iPhone 14 handsets
- No 5.4-inch ‘mini’
- Pro models to have ‘notch-less’ design
- New 48MP main camera
- Starting price: £779 / $799 / AU$1,349
For at least some of the iPhone 14 models, namely the Pro models, Apple is working to eliminate the notch that houses the hardware needed for Face ID. The notch was a controversial design decision when it was introduced in 2017, and since then it’s changed little with the exception of the size tweak with the iPhone 13.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in March 2021 that the 2022 iPhone models would not have a notch, and would instead adopt a hole-punch style design that’s been popular on many Android phones. Since then, rumors have evolved and we have a clearer picture of what to expect.
