The price of the iPhone 14 might be in line with that of the iPhone 13 series. The iPhone 14 and the Apple Watch Series 8 are both expected to come out in September. Every year, Apple releases a new iPhone in September, and based on the latest leaks, it looks like the Cupertino tech giant will keep to its planned routine this year as well.
The rumour mill says that Apple won’t make a “mini” model for the next iPhone 14 series. Instead, there will only be four models. Here’s a quick summary of what we know about the iPhone 14 series so far, from the estimated price to the different versions.

iPhone 14 launch
According to Bloomberg, Apple is planning to unveil the iPhone 14 series on September 7. If you’re an Apple fanatic, you know that Apple typically has the iPhone launch event in the latter half of September. However, according to renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will likely release the iPhone 14 lineup a little bit sooner than usual to minimize the effect of recession risk on consumption.
iPhone 14 variants
After two years of producing “small” versions of the iPhone (the iPhone 12 mini and the iPhone 13 mini), rumours say Apple may discontinue the line in favour of a quartet of devices: the iPhone 14, the iPhone 14 Pro, the iPhone 14 Max, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The ‘Max’ version has a larger display, while the ‘Pro Max’ version boasts the most advanced hardware. It’s expected that the iPhone 14 will have a 6.7-inch screen (for the Pro Max model). iPhone 14 and 14 Pro will have 6.1-inch displays, while Max and Pro Max may have 6.7-inch panels. The new iPhone 14 Pro Max should have 20 per cent narrower side bezels compared to its predecessors.
The iPhone 14 may not have a camera protrusion at the back.
The bump on the back of phones for the camera may be the most divisive new feature. Some people don’t mind them, but others don’t like them, especially since they need to use a protective cover, which takes away from the smooth, glossy look of the iPhone. Prosser’s renders show that iPhone 14 line will have a “thick” design that could do away with the camera bump.
Rumours regarding the iPhone 14’s Touch ID
The much-wanted Touch ID feature was expected to return in the upcoming iPhone lineup for the past two generations.
However, neither the iPhone 12 nor the iPhone 13 models experienced this. So, the rumours are now saying that Touch ID might finally make a comeback in the iPhone 14. It’s improbable for now. Kuo said Touch ID wouldn’t return until 2023.
SIM card configuration for the iPhone 14
According to a recent MacRumors claim citing an anonymous source, Apple may offer solely eSIM iPhone 14 versions soon.
Renders from reliable tipster Jon Prosser suggest that the next generation of iPhones will feature a hole punch rather than a notch in the display.
The iPhone 13 model with 128GB of storage cost $799, whereas the iPhone 13 Pro Max with 1TB of storage cost $1,599.
According to reports, most people think that Apple may keep the prices of its iPhone 14 series the same. But since the global economy is still in a slump, mostly because of the Russia-Ukraine crisis, the iPhone 14 may cost more.
As iPhone 14’s arrival nears, we’ll learn more.
