Most people know that Apple releases new iPhones in September, usually in the first or second week of the month. Even though it’s hard to believe, the iPhone 14 line-up will be out in about eight to nine weeks. Can we get a better idea of a date? One Twitter user with the handle @ihacktu says that the 2022 phones will be announced on September 13.
On September 13, the new iPhone 14 line could be released
Analysis shows that Apple usually announces a new iPhone on either the first or second Tuesday of September. That would leave only September 5th or September 6th as possible dates for the show. But in the United States, Labor Day is always on the first Monday of September. This means that the first Tuesday of September is never a holiday. So, iHacktu iLeaks’ guess that it will happen on September 13 could be right.
Most likely, pre-orders would start the Friday after the event, which would be September 16. The game could come out on September 23. Sounds good, right? We expect four models, with the iPhone 14 Plus replacing the iPhone mini, which is 5.4 inches (or iPhone 14 Max). The last three should be the iPhone 14 (6.1 inches), the iPhone 14 Pro (6.1 inches), and the iPhone 14 Pro Max (6.7 inches).
Of course, these dates are just estimates. In this day and age, there is always the chance that the supply chain will be late. Contract manufacturers are at the mercy of their component suppliers and their low-paid, overworked employees who are just trying to get through another day of work for a boss who is hard on them.
This year, Apple is making more differences between its non-Pro and Pro models than ever before. And that could make the price difference bigger. First, you’ll be able to tell at a glance which models are cheaper and which ones are more expensive. Before, the best way to tell was to count the number of cameras on the back of an iPhone. If you saw two, that meant it wasn’t a Pro unit. If you counted three, you were looking at a Pro model with a telescopic lens.
You had to look at the back of the phone for this trick to work. This year, though, you can tell the difference between the different models by looking at the notch on the front of the phone. Models with the older, more recognizable notch are not Pro. The iPhone 14 Pro models that have the new I cutout on the side are more expensive. And there is a big difference that you can’t see that will make fans who can’t afford a Pro model very angry.
Starting with the iPhone 14 series and going forward, the new Apple A-series chip will not be added to the cheaper iPhone models. That was something that iPhone buyers could always count on, no matter which new iPhone they bought or how much money they spent. Now, people who buy the iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Plus won’t get the new A16 Bionic chip inside their phone. Instead, they will get the A15 Bionic chip from last year.
The iPhone 14 series could come out on September 23, 2015.
This has been talked about, and many people think that people who buy the cheaper models are not tech enthusiasts and wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between the A16 Bionic chip and a potato chip. Also, this theory says that iPhone buyers who aren’t Pros couldn’t name the chip that runs their iPhone even if their lives depended on it. This writer doesn’t seem too happy about Apple selling a “new” iPhone with an old chipset and charging the same price as a “new” phone.
The ProMotion display on the new Pro models will have a refresh rate of 120Hz, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max could have bezels that are 20 percent thinner. And to say it again, the A16 Bionic chip should be inside the iPhone 14 Pro series. Both the Pro and non-Pro versions will have 6GB of RAM. But the more expensive units will have the faster LPDDR5 RAM chips, while the cheaper ones will have LPDDR4 chips.
And finally, the Wide camera on the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will have a 48MP sensor. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus will likely have a 12MP camera sensor. Keep in mind, though, that the 48MP camera sensor will probably use 4:1 Pixel binning. This means that for most photos, a group of four adjacent pixels will group together into a superpixel and share the information they each collect. This makes images sharper and reduces noise.
For now, let’s say that the iPhone 14 series will be shown off on September 13, pre-orders will start on September 16, and it will come out on September 23. And everything can change.
