Following its usual launch time, Apple will hold iPhone 14 launch event on September 7, 2022, along with other flagship products like Apple Watch Series 8, iPad Pro, and new Macs.
Bloomberg reports that the tech giant will continue with the online format for the upcoming event instead of holding an in-person event. Employees have been engaged with recording various segments of the presentation for the past several weeks.
Within a week of launch, iPhone 14 series might be available at Apple Store on September 16
According to the report, some retail store employees have been told to prepare for the release of “a major new product” on September 16. As iPhone sales account for 50% of the company’s revenue, it can be assumed the retail staff is asked to gear up for the availability of the anticipated iPhone 14 series within a week of its launch.
The new iPhones will kick off a busy fall product season, which will also include multiple new Macs, low-end and high-end iPads, and three Apple Watch models.
The Cupertino, California-based tech giant typically announces other products alongside the iPhone, including the latest Apple Watches. The company usually releases the new iPhone in stores about a week and a half after it’s unveiled, and Apple is expected to stick to that pattern this year.
It is possible that Apple will release the new software updates after the September 7 event. Currently, in beta, the tech giant announced iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS Ventura, and watchOS 9 at the June event, scheduled to release to everyone in the fall.
The upcoming iPhone series will also feature four models but the no 5.4-inch mini variant: 6.1-inch iPhone 14, and iPhone 14 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max. More importantly, this year’s Pro models will reportedly receive major upgrades like the A16 Bionic chip built on an advanced 5nm process, redesigned “pill+hole” notch, 48MP camera system, Always-On display, satellite connectivity, faster USB 3.0 Lightning connector and more.
And because of significant improvements, it is claimed that iPhone 14 Pro models will be $100 more expensive than iPhone 13 Pro models.
