The Apple iPhone 14 launch date is still months away from now, but its specifications and features have started leaking already. Information ranging from the iPhone 14’s potential pricing, colours, screen sizes, and the processor has been surfacing the internet frequently these days. If you are eagerly waiting for the iPhone 14 and want to know about its possible specifications, features, and price, we have got you covered.
We have gathered all the information about the Apple iPhone 14 series in this article. Since there is still plenty of time for the launch, it is a better idea to take the information and rumours with a pinch of salt as things can always change at the last moment.
Apple iPhone 14 Specifications, Launch Date, & More
Apple iPhone 14 Series Models
Apple is reportedly changing things a bit this time regarding the models in the iPhone 14 lineup. The company could let go of the 5.4-inch iPhone Mini model due to the low demand for such small devices. However, that does not mean that the usual four-devices-per-series strategy will change. Apple will reportedly replace the Mini model with an all-new Max model. So, expect to see an iPhone 14 Max in the lineup.

The iPhone 13 series was heavily criticized for not bringing significant design changes when compared to the predecessor. This might not be the case with the iPhone 14 lineup as leaks suggest a stark change in the overall design language.
Apple appears to be focusing more on larger iPhone sizes. Ever since the iPhone X, iPhones have featured a wide notch on the top of the screen, which accommodates the front-facing camera and Face ID hardware. This is reportedly set to change with the iPhone 14, as the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max are expected to get rid of the dreaded notch for good.
Turns out, Apple will go with a combination of a circular cutout for the selfie camera and a pill-shaped display cutout to make room for Face ID components, a best-of-both-worlds solution (we hope). This will help Apple get rid of the notch while retaining the Face ID technology. The iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Max would still feature a wide notch but it will be slightly smaller.
The rear of the devices will feature the same triple-camera design. Although the cameras look identical to the predecessor smartphones, the iPhone 14 series is said to feature a 5% bigger camera bump, making the iPhone 13 series protective cases incompatible with the iPhone 14 series.
Apple iPhone 14 Display
The iPhone 14 series will focus on a large-screen experience and will be available in two display sizes. The iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro are expected to feature a 6.1-inch display, while the iPhone 14 Max and the iPhone 14 Pro Max are said to have a 6.7-inch display.
All four iPhone 14 models are tipped to feature high-refresh-rate displays. The iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Max could feature a 90Hz refresh rate OLED screens, while the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max could continue to use 120Hz ProMotion OLED screens.
It was earlier rumoured that the iPhone 14 series will feature an in-display Touch ID fingerprint reader, but that doesn’t seem to be happening.
Apple iPhone 14 Cameras
According to a new report, Apple is planning a massive camera upgrade with the iPhone 14 series. The company is reportedly bringing a new and much larger main camera for the iPhone 14 series.
Apple is tipped to feature a massive 1/1.3-inch 48MP camera sensor for the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. It will be the biggest camera sensor to be ever used on an iPhone. The new camera sensor will theoretically allow for 8K video capture, which is an upgrade over the current 4K/60fps threshold of iPhones.
While the new rear camera technology is said to be restricted to just the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max, the front camera is said to undergo improvement for all four iPhone 14s. Some reports suggest that they will feature an F1.9 aperture and autofocus for the selfie camera.
Apple iPhone 14 Processor
According to several rumours, the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max will use the A16 Bionic processor, while the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Max could use the same A15 Bionic processor that is used in the iPhone 13 series.
While there has been little information available about the A16 Bionic, it is said to move to a 4nm or a 3nm process node from TSMC, which is an upgrade from the current 5nm process. This should ideally result in improved performance and power efficiency.
Some reports suggest that Apple might use the 5nm fabrication process to make the A16 Bionic, given the ongoing global semiconductor shortage. But we don’t think that could be true. We might see a performance gain of up to 15% and a power reduction of up to 30% with the A16 Bionic chipset.
For the first time ever, Apple is reportedly going to incorporate a vapour chamber cooling technology, which is used to keep a device cooler even when it is under heavy stress.
Apple iPhone 14 RAM & Storage Space
Rumours suggest that the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro could feature a whopping 8GB of RAM, making them the first iPhones to feature this much RAM. The company could use 6GB RAM for the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Max.

As has been the case in the past, Apple might introduce new colour variants of the iPhone 14 series smartphones in the future, a few months after the launch.
Apple iPhone 14 Launch Date (Expected)
If Apple follows its usual launch trend, we can expect the iPhone 14 launch date to be September 13, 2022. It could go on sale ten days later on September 22, 2022. Most Apple iPhone launch events take place around the same timeline, and if things go as planned, the iPhone 14 series launch should not be any different.
Apple iPhone 14 Price (Expected)
|Apple iPhone 14||$799||$899||$999||–|
|Apple iPhone 14 Max||$899||$999||$1,099||–|

|Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max||$1,199||$1,299||$1,499||$1,699|
The iPhone 14 is said to come with a starting price of $799. The iPhone 14 Max, on the other hand, is tipped to be priced at $899. The Pro variants will likely cross the $1,000 threshold, and the iPhone 14 Pro is said to start at $1,099, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max is said to cost $1,199.
This is everything that we know about the iPhone 14 series. As mentioned earlier, the iPhone 14 lineup is far from being official, so we might see changes in some specifications and features, but we expect most things to stay the same.
