Apple To Announce iPhone 14 at September Launch Event

According to Bloomberg reporter and reliable Apple leak hound Mark Gurman, the next generation iPhone 14 will be announced during Apple’s fall launch event on September 7th and then go on sale on September 16th.

Apple’s flagship mobile device is expected to be a larger handset than the previous model and will come in four different variants, including the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, plus two iPhone 14 Pro models.

According to Gurman, the iPhone 14 and 14 Max will have the same A15 Bionic chip as last year’s model but should have some refinements including a larger screen for the Max – expanding up to 6.7 inches in size. Apple is also expected to drop the iPhone 13 mini from its lineup.

Meanwhile, the higher-end iPhone 14 Pro models will enjoy a next-generation A16 chip to further encourage consumers to pay a premium for that extra measure of performance.

Gurman says that the iPhone 14 pro will eliminate the traditional “notch” cutout for the front-facing camera and replace it with a simple pill-shaped hole that will also house the FaceID sensors. The display is also rumored to be always on without infringing on battery life.

The Pro model will also get a 48-megapixel wide-angle camera, which will be paired with the same 12-megapixel ultrawide and telephoto options. Apple is also going to be adding improvements to cinematic mode and other video recording features, while also extending the battery life.

In addition to announcing the iPhone 14, Apple is also expected to showcase the Series 8 Apple Watch, including a larger, higher-priced “rugged” model for athletes, and an upgraded entry-level Apple Watch SE. There may also be next-generation AirPods Pro 2, which Gurman believes will offer lossless audio support.

Gurman also speculates that an iPad Pro is also being developed with an M2 chip for later this year, as well as a new entry-level iPad with a faster chip and USB-C connector. And don’t count out the potential of a new MacBook Pro and Mac Mini just in time for the holidays. But what about the Mac Pro?

The September 7th Apple event will be a streaming-only event with high production values that have become the staple for Apple announcements since the pandemic eliminated inviting the public to keynote-style affairs made popular by Apple founder Steve Jobs.
