We’ve heard no hint on a potential release date for the iPhone 14. But going by previous Apple iPhone launch events, we’d expect to see the iPhone 14 make its debut in September 2022.
The most recent leak has the iPhone 14 launch tipped for September 13, supposedly based on insider information. That date seems to track with other rumors and Apple’s general cadence of iPhone launches.
Given the disruption the coronavirus pandemic has caused on supply chains, Apple appears to be taking action to mitigate the risk of the iPhone 14 range hitting long wait times due to manufacturing disruption among its major suppliers.
As for price, it’s also difficult to predict. But we suspect the iPhone 14 will match the price of the iPhone 13, which starts at $799 for the regular iPhone 13 and $999 for the iPhone 13 Pro. However, there could be no iPhone 14 mini at all, so we’d expect a larger 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max to cost $899.
From there, the iPhone 14 Pro could cost $999 and the iPhone 14 Pro Max $1,099 or more.
But there’s a catch here, as somewhat reliable leaker LeaksApplePro has claimed three of the four iPhone 14 models are tipped for a price hike.
The standard iPhone 14 is expected to stick at $799 and the new iPhone 14 Max is tipped to cost $899. But the iPhone 14 Pro might hit $1,099, which is a $100 hike over the $999 iPhone 13 Pro. And the iPhone 14 Pro Max may see a similar increase, with it hitting $1,199. This relatively significant leap in launch price would certainly sting the wallet of anyone hoping to score a high-end next-gen iPhone 14.
A separate leaker, @Shadow_Leak on Twitter, has also tipped that the regular iPhone 14 Pro will cost $1,099. So it’s certainly possible the Pros will cost more this year.
If you’re on the fence between the iPhone 14 and iPhone 13, we’ve rounded up some reasons to buy the iPhone 13 now vs waiting for the iPhone 14.
