 Apple having scheduled its massive Apple September Event on September 7, it's likely that the iPhone 14 will be unveiled at that time. A consistent drumbeat of iPhone 14 speculations, however, has given us a clear picture of what to expect with just a week to go until the big arrival. iPhone 14 is an upcoming mobile by Apple.

We anticipate that the base iPhone 14 will look and feel very similar to the iPhone 13, however with some upgraded features and specifications. A larger 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max (or iPhone 14 Plus) with similar features is also expected to be released with the standard 6.1-inch iPhone 14.

The iPhone 14 Pro is rumored to have a more substantial change, doing away with the iconic display notch in favor of a new cutout design. It is expected that the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will include a new A16 Bionic chip, a 48MP primary camera, and a potential always-on display.

iPhone 14 newest rumors (As of the 2nd of September)

Are you debating whether or not you should get the newest iPhone model? Our upgrade instructions for the iPhone 14 will be of assistance to you there.  A recent rumor suggests that when setting up your iPhone 14, you may be prompted to use an eSIM instead of a physical SIM card.

Even if it won't be long before we most certainly meet the iPhone 14 lineup, leaks regarding the iPhone 14 are constantly piling up. A breakdown of the most recent and up-to-the-minute rumors regarding the iPhone 14 is provided below. It has been speculated that the next iPhone 14 Max model would be given a different moniker, one that is consistent with the names of several earlier iPhone models.

Put an end to the rumors regarding when Apple will actually present the iPhone 14, as that time has come. Apple is holding an event on September 7, and the event is themed "Far Out." We've given a lot of thought to what this may possibly mean for the iPhone 14, given the title of the event.

According to Bloomberg (link opens in new tab), which accurately predicted the product event that would take place on September 7 in advance, gadgets are expected to go on sale on September 16. It is anticipated that pre-orders for the iPhone will start on September 9, which would be just a few of days after the event that Apple is holding.

According to rumors, the basic storage capacity of the iPhone 14 Pro models will be increased to 256 gigabytes rather than 128 gigabytes, which would result in a price increase of approximately $100. (this rumor has been contested by a more recent analyst report). As a consequence of this, the price of the iPhone 14 Pro might reach $1,099, while the price of the iPhone 14 Pro Max could reach $1,199.

Is it possible for Apple to justify this price increase of one hundred dollars for the iPhone 14 Pro models? We have given some thought to what Apple is most likely going to do in order to ensure that the iPhone 14 Pro is a worthwhile investment of additional funds.

It is anticipated that the price of the basic iPhone 14 will remain the same at $799 (a claim made by Twitter leaker Dohyun Kim(opens in new tab) also lends credence to this expectation), while the price of the larger iPhone 14 Max is anticipated to be $899. yeux1122, the source of the leak, suggests that we might even see some models' prices go down, which would be an extremely pleasant surprise.

When Apple releases a new iPhone model, the company typically discontinues support for older iPhone models. The iPhone 13 mini appears to be the model most likely to be removed from Apple's lineup of smartphones when this occurs. As a result, we conducted some research to determine which iPhone models would be phased out out following the introduction of the iPhone 14.

Because of renders posted by leaker Jon Prosser, we have been hearing hints of a design change for some iPhone 14 models since last year, just ahead of the launch of the iPhone 13. This was just before the iPhone 13 was released.

The ordinary iPhone 14 should seem very similar to its predecessor; however, the reports suggest that the iPhone 14 Pro models will have a slightly different appearance than their predecessors. While the Pro models will keep the flat edge design, it is anticipated that they will remove the display notch in favor of a pair of cutouts: one circular cutout for the front camera and one pill-shaped cutout for the Face ID sensors. While the Pro models will keep the flat edge design, it is anticipated that they will drop the display notch. These assertions are supported by other leaks as well as images that were stolen from the supplier chain.

In light of this information, it is safe to assume that none of the iPhone 14 versions will have support for the Touch ID feature. That is not going to hurt as much as we had anticipated it would, as Apple has made it so that Face ID can recognize a legitimate user even when they are wearing a mask. This feature was introduced with iOS 15.4 on Apple devices. Because it works so exceptionally well, it seems that Apple may have circumvented the requirement for fingerprint-based authentication.

The iPhone 14 Pro models are depicted in some schematics as having an elevated camera array that is much more extensive on the iPhone 14 Pro. An expert by the name of Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the reason for this is that a larger module is required to accommodate a 48MP camera. It does not appear plausible, based on the renders that we have seen, that the basic iPhone 14 will have a set of cameras that are flush with its rear panel.

While the appearance of the Pro models appears to be the most intriguing, rumors suggest that Apple may also release an iPhone 14 Max in addition to the basic model. Users will be able to enjoy the benefits of a larger screen on their iPhone without having to shell out the extra cash for the iPhone XS Max if this model lives up to expectations and offers a larger display measuring 6.7 inches.

One rumor that has been around for quite some time is that the iPhone 14 will support connecting via USB-C. Despite this, it appears that Apple will continue to support the Lightning port on all iPhone 14 models, and the first iPhone with USB-C connectivity won't arrive until late 2023, most likely with the iPhone 15.

The SIM tray is another feature that may not be included in the iPhone 14, since Apple is considering removing it. It appears that Apple is planning to offer people an incentive to stop using their physical SIM cards and switch to using their iPhones with an electronic SIM card instead. There are rumors that certain models of the iPhone 14 will continue to support SIM card trays, but it appears like Apple is planning to eliminate them totally beginning with the iPhone 15.

iPhone 14 colors

According to a report that has not been confirmed, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro could come in the color purple. The rumor suggests, although it has not been confirmed(unverified), that both the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models will be available in a purple color with a distinctive finish that changes tone depending on the lighting conditions. This color will reportedly be available in both regular and pro versions.

In the past, Apple has given its standard iPhone model and its iPhone Pro model the same color, but it has usually been in a different shade. If the rumor about the purple iPhone being released in 2022 turns out to be true, we may see the same thing. It is speculated that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will be offered in the colors black, white, blue, red, and purple. On the other hand, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are expected to be available in graphite (possibly midnight), gold (possibly starlight), silver, and purple. It is anticipated that the Pro variants of the iPhone will no longer come in the Sierra Blue color option.

iPhone 14 Display

There were early reports about the iPhone 14 that suggested that all four models of the iPhone 14 that will be released in 2022 may boast ProMotion displays with refresh rates of up to 120Hz, but it appears that this won't be the case.

Display analyst Ross Young speculates that Apple would limit the availability of the ProMotion technology to to the iPhone 14 Pro versions since there is a shortage of panels capable of supporting the technology. Young has made it quite obvious that he is of the opinion that 120Hz refresh rates will continue to be a feature of the iPhone 14 Pro. Always-on display technology is also anticipated to be released as a feature that will be specific to the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.

Website based in Korea According to The Elec, at least one of the iPhone models that will be released in 2019 will use a standard LTPS OLED display that does not include 120Hz ProMotion technology. This information lends support to Young's assertions. An analyst by the name of Jeff Pu has asserted that the capability will be included in all of the iPhone 14 models, however this individual is not generally regarded as being reliable.

According to a report, the display on the iPhone 14 will measure 6.08 inches (which will be rounded up to 6.1 inches), while the display on the iPhone 14 Max would measure 6.68 inches (rounded up to 6.7 inches). This is identical to the iPhone 13 as well as the iPhone 13 Pro Max. The problem is, though, that the new bezels on the pro versions might make them slightly larger than their predecessors (6.12 inches and 6.69 inches, respectively).

iPhone 14 Cameras

The cameras on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max versions will see considerable improvements, but the normal iPhone 14 models will also receive a number of additional capabilities when the new model is released.

Wide Camera

Apple is expected to introduce a Sony-crafted 48-megapixel Wide camera with Focus pixels and pixel binning for use in the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, which will replace the current 12-megapixel Wide camera used in the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max. This camera will replace the current camera that is used in the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max.

The standard 12-megapixel camera lens that is expected to be included in the iPhone 14 models is expected to have functionality that is comparable to that of the 12-megapixel lens that is used in the iPhone 13 models. Unfortunately, the 48-megapixel lens will only be available on the iPhone 14 Pro models.

Front Camera

It is anticipated that all of the iPhone 14 versions that will be released this year will come equipped with an improved front camera that has an aperture of f/1.9 or wider and focusing capabilities. With a wider aperture, more light would be able to pass through the lens and reach the sensor, resulting in photographs that are clearer, more detailed, and with more depth of focus. The enhancements to the autofocus would make it easier to make focus adjustments while on video conversations.

Ultra Wide Lens

Apple introduced an improved six-element Ultra Wide lens with an improved aperture of f/1.8 with the iPhone 13 Pro models. These improvements are expected to come to the standard iPhone 14 models when Apple releases them later this year.

A16 Chip

iPhone 14 Pro Chipset

It is customary for new versions of the iPhone to include an upgraded A-series chip, however Apple may stray from their regular operating procedure this year and not include such a chip. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the new A16 chip, which is expected to be speedier, will only be included in the iPhone 14 Pro variants.

This would mark a significant differentiation between the Pro and non-Pro iPhones in 2022, and the rumor has been backed up by other sources. According to Kuo, the standard iPhone 14 models will continue to use the same A15 Bionic that is in the iPhone 13 models.

Kuo speculates that there will not be a significant change between the A15 chip and the A16 chip. It is anticipated that the chip will be manufactured using the N5P process, which was previously utilized for the A15 chip. This will prevent any improvements from being made.

It won't be until 2023 before the next-generation N3 and N4P fabrication techniques are ready for industrial production. Apple chip supplier TSMC has developed a new N4 process, but Kuo claims that it does not have any substantial improvements over the N5P process, hence Apple will continue to use the N5P technology for the A16. According to Kuo, the upgrade to the A16 is more about marketing than it is about making noticeable improvements.

Leaker ShrimpApplePro has suggested that the new devices will get a "overall performance boost" thanks to an updated cellular modem, a new internal design, and other updates, which could see it offering faster performance. Even though the iPhone 14 is expected to use the same A15 Bionic chip that is in the iPhone 13 models, ShrimpApplePro has suggested that the new devices will get a "overall performance boost."


The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models will reportedly come equipped with 6 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM), which is the same amount of RAM that is available in the iPhone 13 Pro models. This information comes from Ming-Chi Kuo and other sources. The findings of the Taiwanese research company TrendForce are in agreement with these findings.

According to a source from Weibo who claims to know the battery capacities of the iPhone 14 family, it appears that all models, with the exception of the iPhone 14 Pro Max, will be receiving a very minor boost in size. The 14 Pro Max is, in point of fact, decreasing in size, but presumably not to the extent that it will have an effect on the overall battery life of the phone. It is anticipated that both models of the iPhone 14 Pro will receive an upgrade to 30W charging, while the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will continue to support only 20W charging.

In light of everything that has been said about battery life and charging, we've given some thought to how long we anticipate the upcoming iPhones will continue to function. Even if it's only for the iPhone 14 Pro models, we're hopeful that the battery life will be significantly longer and that charging will be significantly faster.


The vapor chamber thermal system, which Apple is rumored to be "aggressively testing," may become standard on high-end iPhone models beginning in 2022. This change is expected to take place. Because of the more powerful CPU capabilities and quicker 5G connection speeds of the high-end iPhones, the VC thermal system will be necessary for such devices. There are already smartphones on the market from companies such as Samsung, Razer, and LG that use vapor chamber cooling technology. This technology is used to maintain a device's cool temperature even when it is under a great deal of strain.

Although it is unknown whether the vapor chamber thermal system will be able to satisfy Apple's rigorous standards, the company is attempting to enhance it, and it is possible that high-end models will start using it in the near future.

A Channel For Lightning

There have been rumors that Apple is planning to remove the Lightning port from the iPhone in favor of a portless design with charging done over MagSafe. However, it is unclear whether or not this technology will be introduced with the 2022 models of the iPhone.

A Lightning port will continue to be included on at least some of the upcoming iPhone models.

Detection of Vehicle Crashes

Apple is currently developing a feature that will allow the iPhone and the Apple Watch to detect when a car accident has occurred. This feature, which might be released in 2022, is currently in development. When a car accident takes place, it will monitor the acceleration of the vehicle to look for a change in the gravitational force and use sensors like accelerometers to do so.

If a collision with a vehicle is detected, either the iPhone or the Apple Watch will immediately contact emergency services to request assistance. Due to the fact that it is scheduled for 2022, this functionality may be developed for the iPhone 14 models and the Apple Watch Series 8; however, it is highly unlikely that it will be restricted to only those devices. It will be an expansion of the Fall Detection feature that is already included in the current models of the Apple Watch and iPhone.

Snapdragon X65 Modem

The Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 modem will be utilized by the iPhone 14 models. This modem is the world's first 10 Gigabit 5G modem and antenna system designed specifically for smartphones.

The RF Chip

According to Taiwan's Economic Daily News, Apple is rumored to have placed an order with TSMC for 5G radio frequency (RF) chips, with the expectation that Apple will use its own technology rather than chips manufactured by Samsung.

According to reports, the chips are produced using TSMC's 6-nanometer process, which allows for a more compact container while also reducing the amount of power required. Together, support for WiFi 6E and longer battery life when using 5G technology could be the result of this.

The Connectivity of Satellites

Alongside the modem, Apple plans to implement satellite-based emergency features that will allow users to send texts in emergency situations and report major emergencies in areas where there is no cellular coverage. These features will be enabled by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X65, which enables certain satellite connectivity features.

Users will be able to text emergency services and contacts using a satellite network when using Emergency Message via satellite. This will be possible even in areas where there is no cellular or WiFi signal available. It will be a new communications protocol that may be used in conjunction with SMS and iMessage, and the message bubbles will be gray. There will be a character limit on messages. Users will also be able to use satellite networks to notify big events such as plane crashes and fires when the system has this feature. These functionalities are not yet available and are not expected to be available until 2022 at the earliest.
