According to recent rumors, the next iPhone 14 series will be released this fall, come hell or high water. As the year 2022 draws closer, the rumor mill is spinning rumor after rumor regarding the upcoming iPhone 14 series.
So, just what have we been hearing has been revealed.
Numerous factors have contributed to this increase, such as the discontinuation of the iPhone mini and the introduction of a new device category (a low-cost iPhone Max), a significant design shift in the form of a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera and Face ID modules, faster technology, and… a higher price. Apple will make all of this available to you starting in September 2022.
When is the Apple iPhone 14 expected to be released and expected price?
Because its announcement and release dates are fairly predetermined, Apple is considered to be one of the most predictable corporations in the technology industry. Whatever happens, we can always count on iPhones to be unveiled in September and released within a week or two of that announcement. Accordingly, the iPhone 14 will most likely be unveiled and released in mid-September 2022, which coincides with Apple’s typical iPhone announcement date. Of course, something unexpected could occur that would cause that timescale to shift, but the chances of that happening are minimal – the iPhone 14 is scheduled to ship in September 2022.
iPhone 14 is available for purchase for $1,499 USD.
In recent reports, it was revealed that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max would be more expensive than their predecessors. There are a variety of factors that have contributed to the anticipated price increase, including the more expensive punch-hole display with variable refresh rates as well as an increase in total supply chain prices. The company is still considering hiking expenses, according to rumors, but if it does so, the prices for Apple’s 2022 portfolio may look something like this:
Apple iPhone 14 6.1-inch model costs $799, while the Apple iPhone 14 Max 6.7-inch model costs $899.
Apple iPhone 14 Pro, 6.1-inch model costs $1099; Apple iPhone 14 Pro, 6.7-inch model costs $1199.
However, it is important to remember that the iPhone 14 Pro max could become substantially more expensive as a result of a future camera upgrade, which would likely increase the price by a large amount. Given the short period, we could be off by a few dollars here and there, but we don’t anticipate a significant price rise for the iPhone 14 series, and if we do, it will almost certainly be for the Pro models.

The Apple iPhone 14 comes with a camera.
According to respected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is mulling a significant camera upgrade for the iPhone 14 series. The iPhone 14 Pro Max, Apple’s top-tier flagship device, is expected to include a massive 1/1.3-inch 48MP camera sensor, which would be the largest yet found on an iPhone device. The main wide-angle camera will almost certainly benefit first from the larger sensor, and improvements in camera technology will almost certainly trickle down to the auxiliary ultra-wide and telephoto cameras in later iPhones as time goes on. Of course, the Pro models will always be one step ahead of the competition.
Mr. Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the next iPhone, which will be released in the second half of this year, will be able to output direct 48MP and 12MP (four cells merging output mode) at the same time. “The new 2H22 iPhone’s CIS pixel size increases to around 2.5um with 12MP output, which is significantly larger than the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, as well as larger than previous Android phones and close to the DSC level.” “The new 2H22 iPhone’s CIS pixel size increases to around 2.5um with 12MP output, which is significantly larger than the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, as well as larger than previous Android phones and close to the DSC level.”
According to Apple, this would be the largest camera sensor ever integrated into an iPhone. The iPhone 14’s Night mode should benefit from the quad pixel binning, which should result in exceptional image quality in low light conditions, according to Apple. Apple’s iPhone 14 is expected to use larger sensors from Sony, with LG supplying the camera modules. The iPhone 14 is expected to be released in September.
Furthermore, the new sensor will allow the main camera to shoot footage at 8K resolution. iPhones are now only capable of recording 4K video at 60 frames per second, and according to Kuo’s projections, we won’t see a resolution update before the end of the year. That’s good, though, because recording 4K video at 60 frames per second is a standard that will likely remain in place for the foreseeable future. Because of the enormous improvement in video recording provided by the iPhone 13 series, an iPhone 14 with no notable enhancements will be sufficient.
Even if all of these beneficial camera advancements are beneficial to the end user, Apple’s costs will rise as a result, which will almost definitely be passed on to the consumer. It’s logical to think that the new and improved camera technology will be limited to the top-end iPhone 14 Pro Max at first, so don’t expect a major price rise across the board just yet.
