Tipster expects the iPhone 14 series to be unveiled on that date

As most consumers know, Apple typically unveils the latest iPhone models in September, usually around the first or second week of the month. It’s hard to believe, but with time flying so quickly, we’re only about eight to nine weeks away from seeing the iPhone 14 range see the light of day. Can we commit to a more precise date? A Twitter tipster with the handle iHacktu ileaks (@ihacktu) says the 2022 phones will be announced on Tuesday, September 13th.

That aligns with an analysis that finds that Apple typically holds its new iPhone event on the first or second Tuesday of September. That would narrow the reveal down to two dates, September 5th or September 6th. But every year in the States, the first Tuesday in September is preceded by Labor Day, which falls on the first Monday of the month. Therefore, September 13th, iHacktu iLeaks estimate might be correct.

Most likely, pre-orders would start on the Friday after the event or on September 16th with a possible September 23rd release date. Sound good to you? We expect four models with the 5.4-inch iPhone mini replaced by the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus (or iPhone 14 Max). The remaining trio should include the 6.1-inch iPhone 14, 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Well, these dates are of course estimates. In today’s world we are always faced with the possibility of delays in the supply chain. Contract manufacturers are at the mercy of component suppliers and fussy, underpaid, overworked employees trying to survive another day’s work in the hands of a demanding boss.
This year Apple differentiates the non-pro and pro models more than ever. And that could mean a bigger price gap. First of all, you can tell the difference between the cheaper and the more expensive models at a glance. Counting the cameras on the back of an iPhone used to be the best guide. If you counted two, you were looking at a non-Pro device. If you’ve counted three, you’ve been staring at a Pro model with a telescopic lens.
This trick required you to stare at the back of the phone. But this year you can tell the different models apart by the notch on the front of the phone. Models with the older iconic notch are non-Pro devices. The ones with the new side “i” cutout are the more expensive Pro variants of the iPhone 14. And there’s one big difference you can’t see that will irk enthusiasts who can’t afford one of the Pro models.

Starting with the iPhone 14 series and going forward, the cheaper iPhone models will not get the latest Apple A-series chip. That was one thing that iPhone buyers use to keep track of whatever new iPhone they bought and how much money they spent. Now those who buy the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus won’t get the new A16 Bionic in their phone; Instead, their phones are powered by last year’s A15 Bionic.

The iPhone 14 series release date could be September 23rd

There was some debate about this, with many assuming that those likely to buy the cheaper models are not enthusiasts and wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between the A16 Bionic chip and a potato chip. Additionally, according to this theory, non-Pro buyers couldn’t name the chip used to power their iPhone, even if their lives depended on it. Somehow, this author isn’t so confident about Apple selling a “new” iPhone with a repurposed chipset and charging consumers the price of a “new” phone.

The new Pro models will have a 120Hz refresh rate thanks to the ProMotion display, and we’ve seen 20% thinner bezels on the iPhone 14 Pro Max. And to reiterate, the iPhone 14 Pro series should have the A16 Bionic under the hood. Both Pro and non-Pro models will come with 6GB of RAM. However, the more expensive units feature the faster LPDDR5 RAM chips compared to the LPDDR4 component on the cheaper models.

Finally, the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will sport a 48-megapixel wide camera sensor. The camera sensor for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus will likely weigh 12 MP. Keep in mind, however, that the 48-megapixel camera sensor is likely to use 4:1 pixel binning, meaning that in most photos a group of four neighboring pixels will group together to form a super pixel, sharing the information each collects , resulting in sharper images with noise reduction.

For now, let’s start with an iPhone 14 series reveal on September 13, a pre-orders launch on September 16, and a September 23 release date. And it’s all subject to change.
