We have been hearing rumours about the release date of the 2022 iPhone 14.
According to a new report, the iPhone 14 will be presented on September 7 at an iPhone-centric event that Apple is planning to hold on that date before it goes on sale about a week and a half later.
Some employees of Apple’s stores have been asked to prepare for the September 16 release, the same report claimed, which would fit in with Apple’s normal schedule for the release.
The iPhone event will be earlier than some recent events that have been held in the year until October, partly due to delays due to the pandemic. But according to a new Bloomberg report, the company is planning to move those dates to early September, which comes amid similar rumors about Apple’s plans.
The report adds that the date may still change, as there are almost three weeks ahead of the planned launch. Like all of Apple’s events since the pandemic, it will be held as an online broadcast rather than a physical event.
Apple is expected to launch four new versions of the iPhone at the upcoming event but those sizes will be the same.
iPhone sizes are changing in 2022, and Apple is eliminating the 5.4-inch iPhone mini as it turned out to be unpopular with customers. After seeing lackluster iPhone mini sales, Apple is planning to focus on larger iPhone sizes for its flagship devices going forward, and we are expecting to see a 6.1-inch iPhone 14, a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max. Note that there will be no 5.4-inch iPhone 14mini this year.
With those phones may come a new update for the AirPods Pro and three new Apple Watches. One of them could be the rumored “Apple Watch Pro”, which will include a bigger display and a more rugged design.
Apple has used the same color for the standard iPhone and Pro models before, but the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14Pro could come in purple, according to an unverified rumour.
To boost sales and increase demand, the iPhone 14 is expected to be priced starting at $799, which is the starting price for the iPhone13. Apple does not have plans to increase the cost of the entry-level smartphone, so keep your savings.
