What to expect from Apple’s iPhone 14 series on September 7: Specs, design, price, and everything you need to know: The Apple iPhone 14 series is on its way. September 7 will be Apple’s first annual fall event, with the tagline “Far out.” Apple’s invitation hints that the event will be held in person this year, but the company is not disclosing its location. The Covid-19 pandemic prompted a run of virtual iPhone events. On Wednesday, September 7, Apple will announce the iPhone 14 at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET. Several Apple products will be launched during the event, including the iPhone 14 series and the Apple Watch 8. The Apple iPhone 14 series is all we know so far.
iPhone 14 series to have four new iPhones, without the iPhone 14 mini
Four iPhones will be released in the iPhone 14 lineup this year: the iPhone 14, the iPhone 14 Pro, the iPhone 14 Max and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. ‘Pro’, according to Apple, refers to higher-end specs and ‘Max’ refers to a bigger screen, so the iPhone 14 Max is likely to be the biggest change. A model with 6.7-inch screen and ‘Pro’ features will be available for the first time from Apple. The Pro and Max models are expected to feature a notchless display and a 48-megapixel camera.
No iPhone Mini this year
According to a recent report from Nikkei Asian Review, Apple will discontinue the smallest iPhone this year because of “sluggish sales” Another note, from Ming-chi Kuo, suggested the same thing.

iPhone 14 Price and possible release date
Apple has scheduled a September 7 event with the title “Far Out” which we’ve speculated could lead to the announcement of the iPhone 14.
A more recent analyst report disputed the rumor that the iPhone 14 Pro models would cost $100 more, but will also have 256GB starting storage rather than 128GB. In this case, the iPhone 14 Pro is expected to cost $1,099, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max is likely to cost $1,199.
Do you think Apple can justify this $100 price hike for the iPhone 14 Pro models? Keeping the iPhone 14 Pro’s value in mind, we’ve looked at how Apple could make it worth the premium.
iPhone 14 design
With the removal of the notch cutout, the biggest change has been made on the design front. Introduced with the iPhone X, the notch has remained the same ever since. Several Android OEMs adopted it soon after, as well. A number of Apple sensors, including Face ID, speakers, microphones, and more, are located in the notch. According to reports, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models may instead have new pill-shaped holes and cutouts on their displays instead. The screen space will be increased as a result.
iPhone 14 colors
In terms of color options, one source claims there will remain Midnight, Starlight, and Product RED, but the current blue will be replaced by a lighter sky blue and a new purple option will be added. However, that leak has since been deleted, so its reliability is questionable. The render, from artist Souta, shows the iPhone 14 Pro in purple
iPhone 14 display
According to reports, Apple will release both a standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro with 6.1-inch displays, along with an iPhone 14 Max/Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max with 6.7-inch displays. There will be no more 5.4-inch minis.
The iPhone 14 is rumored to have an iPhone 14 display of 6.08 inches (rounded up to 6.1 inches), while the iPhone 14 Max has a 6.68-inch display (rounded up to 6.7 inches). Both the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 Pro Max have this feature. In addition, the new bezels may increase the size of the Pro models (to 6.12 inches and 6.69 inches, respectively).
In light of the fact that both the 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max have 120Hz refresh rates, it would be great to see all iPhone 14 models come with such a screen, possibly using an LTPO panel or an evolution of it that would provide a refresh rate as low as 1Hz.
iPhone 14 cameras
According to latest rumors, the iPhone 14 will not get a major camera upgrade, with an Apple tipster claiming non-Pro models will keep their 12MP cameras. It is likely that Apple will have worked on the software side to make the next-gen iPhone’s photography capabilities better, as well as provide more camera-centric features in iOS 16.
There may not be all e-SIM models in the iPhone 14 series
There have been rumors about the iPhone ditching physical SIM cards since 2020. Physical SIM cards are likely to remain in the Apple iPhone 14 series. iPhone 15 series may be eSIM-only devices.
iPhone 14 specs, battery life and charging
The iPhone 14 has been rumored to retain the A15 Bionic processor, but its Pro modes are expected to have the A16 chip (something the iPhone 15 series may also do). According to Ming Chi-Kuo, Apple plans to ship more iPhone 14 Pro models than standard iPhone 14s as a result of this chip rumor.
Storage options for the iPhone 13 are expected to stay the same, starting with 128GB and going up to 1TB for the Pro.
