As most consumers know, Apple usually unveils the latest iPhone models in September, usually in the first or second week of the month. It’s hard to believe, but with time passing so quickly, we’re only about eight to nine weeks away from seeing the iPhone 14 lineup greet the light of day. Can we meet on a more specific date? A Twitter tipster with the handle iHacktu ileaks (@ihacktu)
says the 2022 phones will be announced on Tuesday, September 13.

That coincides with an analysis that notes how Apple usually holds its new iPhone event on the first or second Tuesday in September. That would limit the reveal to two dates, September 5 or September 6. 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 13, iHacktu iLeaks’ guess, may well be right.
Twitter tipster says iPhone 14 line will be unveiled on September 13
Most likely the pre-orders will start the Friday after the event or September 16 with a possible release date of September 23. Do you sound good? 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 includes the 6.1-inch iPhone 14, the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Now, of course, these data are estimates. In this day and age we are always faced with the possibility of delays when it comes to the supply chain. Contract manufacturers are at the mercy of parts suppliers and cunning, low-paid and overworked workers who try to get through another day at the hand of a demanding boss.
This year Apple differentiates the non-Pro and Pro models more than ever before. And that could mean a wider price gap. First of all, you can see the difference between the cheaper models and the more expensive ones at a glance. Previously, counting the number of cameras on the back of an iPhone was the best clue. If you counted two, you were looking at a non-Pro unit. If you counted three, you were staring at a Pro model with a telescoping lens.
This trick required you to stare at the back of the phone. But this year, you can tell the different models apart by looking at the notch on the front of the phone. Models with the older iconic notch are non-Pro units. The ones with the new sideways “i” cutout are the more expensive Pro variants of the iPhone 14. And there’s one big difference you can’t see, and enthusiasts who can’t afford one of the Pro models are sure to be upset. to make.
Starting with the iPhone 14 series and into the future, the cheaper iPhone models will not get the latest Apple A series chip. That was one thing iPhone buyers use to count no matter what new iPhone they bought and how much money they spent. Now those who buy the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus won’t get the new A16 Bionic in 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 23
There has been some discussion about this with many thinking 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. Moreover, according to this theory, non-pro buyers could not name the chip used to power their iPhone, even if their lives depended on it. Somehow this writer isn’t so optimistic about Apple selling a “new” iPhone with a recycled chipset and charging consumers the price of a “new” phone.
The new Pro models have a 120Hz refresh rate thanks to the ProMotion display, and we were able to see 20% thinner bezels on the iPhone 14 Pro Max. And again, the iPhone 14 Pro series should have the A16 Bionic under the hood. Both Pro and non-Pro models will come with 6 GB of RAM. However, the more expensive units will feature the faster LPDDR5 RAM chips compared to the LPDDR4 component for the cheaper models.
And finally, the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will have a 48MP wide camera sensor. The camera sensor for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus will likely weigh 12 MP. Keep in mind, though, that the 48MP camera sensor will likely use 4:1 pixel binning, meaning that for most photos, a group of four adjacent pixels will cluster into a superpixel and share the information they each collect, resulting in sharper images with noise reduction.
For now, let’s go with a September 13 reveal for the iPhone 14 series, a September 16 pre-order launch and a September 23 release date. And it is all subject to change.
