This year, Apple will unveil new iPhones. The Apple iPhone 14 range will be introduced on September 7 at a live event at Apple’s Cupertino headquarters.
iPhone rumours stink. Many come from dubious postings on Weibo. Anyone may upload arbitrary content on Weibo and have it used by websites. Analysts with sources at Apple’s suppliers can’t confirm whether they’re seeing anything Apple is experimenting with and won’t utilize. A few journalists may acquire the full information late.
Here are the trusted iPhone 14 rumours.

iPhone 14 debuts Sept. 7.
Apple has released its phones on schedule despite supply-chain concerns. Apple’s “spaceship campus” event is Sept. 7, with the phones reaching stores 9-10 days later. That implies September 9 presale and September 16 in-store/on-sale. “Far out,” might imply anything in Apple-speak.
The iPhone 14 may use USB-C, but probably won’t.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple is migrating from Lightning to USB-C. This won’t happen until the iPhone 15 in 2023. USB-C boasts faster charging and transfer speeds than Lightning, and also helps Apple with the EU, which may soon require USB-C as a global connector.
14 May iPhone Satellites
The speculation that the Apple iPhone 14 would include satellite connection first surfaced in 2021 and was picked up again in 2022 by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. As a fail-safe, this would certainly come with the capacity to transmit emergency messages to satellites even when you are not in a service area. Even while Lynk and AST are developing systems to provide wider satellite connection for regular cellphones, it’s unlikely that they’ll be able to meet Apple’s expectations for iPhones this year.
Only pro phones get A16 for iPhone Mini
Recently, analyst Kuo has tweeted great speculations. Only the two Pro-model iPhones will receive the new A16 chip, he said.
The tiny news is distressing, but not unexpected. The iPhone 13 mini was the worst-selling iPhone in its cohort, according to Counterpoint Research.
The A16 announcement creates a unique dilemma for the iPhone series, since new features frequently rely on fresh silicon, especially camera enhancements like Deep Fusion and night mode.
It has 6.1- and 6.7-inch screens.
Gurman, Apple’s top leaker, believes there will be four versions, but only two sizes. Apple will offer 6.1- and 6.7-inch “Pro” and lower-cost variants.
Gurman predicts (again, opens in new window) that the iPhone 14 Pro, like the latest Samsung Galaxy phones, will include an always-on, low-power display. While the screen brightness and frame rate are kept low, the iPhone 14 Pro will be able to display widgets like weather, calendars, stocks, activities, and other data, he claims.
iPhone 14 Pro Screen Has Hole-Punch Design
According to MacRumors, the Pro model iPhones will include an oval-shaped Face ID cutout with a hole-punch camera (Opens in a new window). The two parts will take up approximately the same area as the notch, but they’ll be surrounded by live pixels and less noticeable.
Max Weinbach tweeted another Apple iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max render. There are also rumours of precise schematics and decreased front bezels, but I don’t believe Twitter and Weibo users.
iPhone 14 Pro may have a 48MP camera
The iPhone 14 Pro will include a “48 megapixel” camera with 8K video capture, claims a Taiwanese research group. “48 megapixel” because quad-pixel binning produces 12-megapixel photos. The 48-megapixel primary wide lens may combine with the optical zoom lens for enhanced “fused” zoom.
According to Weibo postings studying iPhone 14 prototype covers, the Pro version will feature a bigger camera housing to accommodate more powerful camera equipment. We don’t typically believe Weibo, but a more powerful camera may be bigger.
iPhone 14’s front camera will autofocus
Ming-Chi Kuo claims the iPhone 14’s front camera will update to AF, enhancing selfie and video performance.
ET News claims LG Innotek will provide the selfie camera module.
iPhone 14 Pro will have 6GB RAM
DigiTimes reports that this rumour is plausible (Opens in a new window). LPDDR5 RAM is quicker than iPhone 13’s LPDDR4X RAM.
Some models lack SIM card slots.
Wild! MacRumors believes certain iPhone models may not have a SIM card slot. According to the article, this would be a method to preserve space in the iPhone’s body. All three main US carriers support eSIM, however most carriers don’t. eSIM makes switching carriers easy, something large carriers don’t like. Small virtual carriers dislike eSIM because their antiquated back-end and activation systems can’t handle it.
iPhone 14 Pro subscriptions are available.
Apple rumoured to provide an iPhone “subscription service” That requires explanation. Most Americans purchase phones “on subscription” via your carriers, and Apple already has an iPhone Upgrade Program where you pay $39.50/month for an iPhone 13 and may swap it in when the next model comes.
Macworld sees this as a means to connect Apple hardware and services like iCloud, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and Apple Music. This might be a single unified “Apple everything” membership, a cheap approach to lock you into so many Apple services you’ll never be able to (or want to) leave.
iPhone might cost $100 more this year
There are two iPhone 14 price rumours. The first, from “yeux1122” on the Korean site Naver, says the iPhone 14 will start at $799, the same as the iPhone 13 (the Mini was cheaper). The ad says the information originates from a “major U.S. financial institution.” It’s impossible to confirm, but it makes sense for Apple to maintain the entry price the same to boost iPhone sales.
Conversely, Dan Ives of Wedbush Securities told The Sun(Opens in a new window) that he predicts the next iPhone would see a $100 hike, meaning the basic model will sell at $899. Cupertino must pass on rising supply chain costs to consumers, Ives told The Sun.
Apple’s iPhone 14 needs a difference-maker
All of the aforementioned speculations reveal the Apple iPhone 14 Pro with numerous new features, but there’s nothing about the Phone 14 and iPhone 14 Max. The new phones may be iPhone 13s with a new number.
AT&T 5G, better reception?
iPhone 14 will very surely employ Qualcomm’s X65 modem, which is superior than the iPhone 13’s X60. The iPhone 13 series doesn’t support AT&T’s 3.45GHz 5G. It may have superior low-signal reception than iPhone 13 series. I observed that using the Galaxy S22 over the Galaxy S21, which swapped modems.
The iPhone 14 Pro’s chassis might be titanium.
The next iPhone 14 Pro will have a Titanium Alloy Chassis, according to JPMorgan Chase (via MacRumors). This would be the first time Apple employed titanium in an iPhone design, changing the feel of Pro models. Titanium is more scratch- and bend-resistant than stainless steel, so iPhone Pro customers should benefit.
