Apple iPhone 14 series launching on September 7– A new series of Apple iPhones is on its way. The date has been set for September 7. The company has confirmed that it will hold its first annual fall special event on that day.. “Far out” is the tagline the company is using to tease the iPhone 14 event.
According to Apple’s invitation, this year’s event will be in person. In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, this is the first virtual iPhone event. Wednesday, September 7 will be the day of the iPhone 14 event, which will begin at 10 a.m. Pacific Time/1 p.m. Eastern Time respectively.
Apple will launch several products at the event, including the iPhone 14 series and the Apple Watch 8. The Apple iPhone 14 series is all we know so far.
There will be four new iPhones in the iPhone 14 series without the iPhone 14 mini
A total of four iPhones will be available in the iPhone 14 lineup – the iPhone 14, the iPhone 14 Pro, the iPhone 14 Max and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. In this case, ‘Pro’ is supposed to refer to a higher-end specification while ‘Max’ refers to a larger screen size.
It is likely that the iPhone 14 Max will be the biggest upgrade to the iPhone 14 lineup this year. Apple will launch a 6.7-inch iPhone model with ‘Pro’ features for the first time. Among other changes, the Pro and Max models will feature notchless displays and 48-megapixel cameras.
Apple iPhone 14 series likely to go on sale starting September
There is a high likelihood that Apple’s iPhone 14 series will go on sale on September 16, keeping with its tradition of selling iPhones on Fridays. The iPhone 13 went on sale on Friday, September 24, 2021, following Apple’s September 14, 2021 event.
A Bloomberg report says Apple store employees should prepare for a “major new product release” on September 16.
There is no iPhone Mini this year
The 5.4-inch Mini, Apple’s smallest iPhone, is likely to be discontinued this year due to “sluggish sales”. The Nikkei Asian Review reported in 2021 that the iPhone 14 Mini would die, and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also predicted the same.
Changing the processor on iPhone 14: Is it going to be a big deal?
The A-series processors are introduced every year with Apple’s flagship iPhone models. The A15 processor powers iPhone 13, so the A16 will power iPhone 14 series. According to some rumours, Apple may depart from this annual upgrade cycle in the future.
According to them, Apple will only use A16 in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The year-old A15 processor will be available on the iPhone 14, as well as on the iPhone 14 Max.
iPhone 14 series may cost more, but start at same price tag
It is rumored that Apple will increase the price of the iPhone 14 by $100. Since a few years ago, there haven’t been any price increases. Compared to their predecessors, Apple’s iPhone 12 and 13 are the same price.
As Apple’s supply chain has seen costs rise, reports suggest that the company may have to increase prices. However, there is also rumour that the price may remain $799.
Design of iPhone 14
The notch cutout has been removed as the biggest design change. The notch was first introduced with the iPhone X and has remained the same ever since. It was soon embraced by several Android OEMs.
Apple’s notch houses several sensors, including the Face ID sensor, the speaker, and the microphone. New hole + pill-shaped cutouts may instead be used on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models. As a result, screen space will be increased.

There is a possibility that not all iPhone 14 models will have eSIMs
Physical SIM cards may be entirely discarded on the iPhone since 2020, according to rumours. There is a good chance that Apple will not eliminate physical SIM cards from the iPhone 14 series. The iPhone 15 series may only use eSIMs.
iPhone 14 to offer biggest camera updates in years
Apple may offer some significant camera upgrades in the iPhone 14 lineup, among other changes. New suppliers may have been chosen by Apple to produce the front-facing camera’s higher-end lens, according to rumors. It is possible that the front-facing camera’s autofocus features will be upgraded.
A Korean tech site reports that LG Innotek will supply the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro with the selfie camera. Additionally, Kuo believes the iPhone 14 will have a hole-punch front camera, resulting in a notch-less design, as well as a 48-megapixel rear camera, up from 12 megapixels in the current model.
Camera bumps are no longer necessary
Some renders show a flattened camera bump as another big design change. Apple’s iPhone 14 is rumored to have a thick boy body, thick enough, according to leakster Prosser, to accommodate all the camera hardware without a huge camera setup on the back. There is a connection between iPhone 14’s thickness and its larger battery.
Lock screen that is always on
In iOS 16, Apple has hinted at an always-on lock screen mode. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, however, were reportedly the only models with this feature.
