Apple iPhone 14 release date and price
Possibly 13 September 2022
iPhone 14: cut to the chase
- What is it? The successor to the new iPhone 13
- When is it out? Most likely September 2022
- How much will it cost? Probably upwards of around $799 / £779 / AU$1,349
Typically Apple holds its iPhone event around the 2nd week of September and typically on a Tuesday. The iPhone 13 models have been published on 14 September, following this pattern.
If the sample continues, the iPhone 14 models should be published on 13 September 2022. Of direction nothing is official as yet, nor will it be for quite some time.
In terms of price, we might assume the iPhone 14 models to start around the identical ballpark as the iPhone 13 models. Rumors have claimed the iPhone mini mannequin would possibly be scrapped in the future, which if actual would put the beginning fee of the iPhone 14 models up compared to the iPhone 13 models. Hopefully, there will be an iPhone 14 mini though.

What will the iPhone 2022 be called?
- iPhone 14 mini
- iPhone 14
- iPhone 14 Pro
- iPhone 14 Pro Max
The iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max launched in 2019, accompanied by using the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max in 2020 and the iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone thirteen Pro Max in 2021.
It’s consequently likely that the subsequent iPhones will be referred to as the iPhone 14 mini, iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. That’s no longer a warranty though, as Apple should opt for the iPhone 13s, or it may want to go for something definitely different. We’d put our cash on the iPhone 14 for now though.
- All-new design
- Punch hole camera?
- Flush rear
The Apple iPhone 13 models followed the equal plan as the iPhone 12 models, featuring flat edges and a layout nearer in line with the iPhone 4 and 5 compared to the rounded edges we had gotten used to for the reason that the iPhone 6.
Rumors suggest the iPhone 14 models should alternate things up once more though, with talk of a move to a punch-hole front camera. There are additionally claims the protruding rear camera may additionally give up flush with the lower back of the phone in the subsequent iPhone.
We noticed a reduced notch at the pinnacle of the iPhone 13 models compared to preceding Face ID phones, and a patent was once earlier filed for a notch-less phone, however, we think we will have to wait and see if this will become a reality.
In phrases of finishes, we would count on the Pro models to continue to be extra top rate than the standard models, and there have been rumors to recommend they should adopt scratch-resistant titanium. There is an additional discussion that the mini model will be ditched and a new popular Max model will be brought instead however the whole thing is simply a rumor for now.
- All OLED
- 120Hz refresh rate
- Different sizes
All 2022 iPhones will have likely have an OLED display, like the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 models offer. It’s also likely the iPhone 14 Pro models will have an adaptive refresh rate between 10Hz and 120Hz, like the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, though maybe the ProMotion technology will filter down to the standard models too.
In terms of screen sizes, the iPhone 13 mini has a 5.4-inch display, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro have a 6.1-inch display and the iPhone 13 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch display. As mentioned, there has been some chatter about the iPhone mini being ditched and a standard Max model being introduced.
If this happens, the iPhone 14 models could come in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch models, with a Pro and standard model of each. We’re still hoping the mini will continue in 2022 though as we have a lot of love for that device.
Some speculation previously suggested in-display fingerprint sensors could work alongside Face ID, which is a plausible suggestion.
- Dual camera on standard models
- Triple camera on Pro models
The Apple iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max both have a triple rear camera, consisting of a main wide sensor, ultra-wide sensor, and a telephoto sensor, while the standard iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 have the same main wide and ultra-wide sensor, but they lack the telephoto lens.
There has been a rumor claiming the iPhone 14 Pro models would feature a wide-angle camera with a 1/1.3-inch 48MP CMOS image sensor and support 8K video recording but it is still very early days.
We expect the iPhone 14 Pro models to continue to offer an extra lens and extra features, like Macro and ProRES, over the iPhone 14 standard models. At the moment, it is unclear what might change for 2022 but improvements over the 2021 models are likely.
Hardware and software
- A16 chip
- iOS 16
With Apple adopting 5G with all the iPhone 12 models and iPhone 13 models, it’s pretty much guaranteed all the iPhone 14 models will be 5G compatible.
It’s also likely the iPhone 14 models will run on the A16 Bionic chip, assuming Apple continues with its naming patterns in terms of chipsets. The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max had an extra core for their GPU, so this could be the case again for the iPhone 14 Pro models, helping differentiate them from the standard models.
The next major software build will be iOS 16, which we expect to hear more about in June 2022, which is when Apple typically holds its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC).
In terms of storage, with the standard iPhone 13 models coming in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB options and the iPhone 13 Pro models offering the same, as well as a 1TB option, we’d expect the same from the iPhone 14 models.
