The iPhone 14 has been talked about for months now, as is always the case with upcoming Apple devices, but now we finally have information on a launch date, if the source is to be believed.
According to iDropNews, the iPhone 14 will be introduced to the world on September 13, alongside three new Apple Watch models, the Series 8, SE, and Extreme Edition. There’s even word that we might see the new AirPods Pro 2 while we’re at it, too.
The source does not know if the event will be held face to face or if it will be presented online. Apple still hasn’t made a decision.
Apple could be making a big mistake with the iPhone 14, leak shows
As for the iPhone 14, we know that the phone will come in four models: iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Any major improvements, new software/hardware will most likely be seen exclusively on the Pro models.
One of those changes could be a 48MP main snapper and a new chipset. We could also say goodbye to the notch and see it replaced by two holes: one round and one pill-shaped, which will accommodate the front camera as well as the Face ID sensors.
In terms of design, the iPhone 14 will be almost indistinguishable from the iPhone 13, but maybe Apple has some surprises in store, who knows.
The processor could remain the same and the mini variant will be replaced by a 6.7-inch Max version. US starting prices could be $799 for iPhone 14 and $899 for iPhone 14 Max, however, other rumors have placed price tags at $1099 for iPhone 14 Pro and $1199 for the Pro Max variant.
As for the Apple Watch Series 8, there is not much to say. The name Extreme Edition has also been floated around a bit, in hopes that Apple will announce a smartwatch with extreme sports in mind. In terms of design, we don’t expect any changes but we will most certainly see improvements in terms of hardware.
The starting price of the Apple Watch Series 8 is expected to be $399.

However, we are still a long way from September, so take all of this information with the proverbial grain of salt.
