This year’s iPhone 14 is fast approaching. We expect four new iPhone 14 models to be released this year, and pre-orders will be available in a matter of months. The release date, the possibility of delays, and more are all covered below.
Timelines of The iPhone Through The Years
Apple used to release the first generation of iPhones in the first half of the year, but since then, the company has maintained a consistent September release date for new models.
The following is a list of the most recent iPhone models: New iPhone models are now unveiled and released every September, a shift from the traditional first-half-of-the-year release schedule.
Here’s a quick look at the iPhone’s release history over the last few years:
- iPhone 13: September 23, 2021
- iPhone 12: October 23, 2020
- iPhone 11: September 20, 2019
- iPhone XS: September 21, 2018
- iPhone X: November 3, 2017
- iPhone 8: September 22, 2017
- iPhone 7: September 16, 2016
iPhone releases have become more predictable, but there are two major exceptions. The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 caused a one-month delay in the iPhone 12 series.
Even though it was announced in September, the iPhone X did not go on sale until the following month, in November.
When the iPhone X was released in September 2016, it was the first iPhone to feature Face ID and an all-new design.
iPhone 14 Release Date News
In addition to a new look for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, there are believed to be changed to the camera.
Additionally, the Pro model is said to contain a hole punch and a pill-shaped cutout. It is predicted that the front-facing camera will be improved, that a new purple color will be available, and that there will be an always-on display.
All signs point to a September announcement and release date for the iPhone 14. Included in this group are the following models: iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. All of this year’s new iPhone models are included in that list.
According to previous events, Apple usually announces new iPhones on the first or second Tuesday of September.
On either the 6th or the 13th of September, depending on the year, that would fall. The most likely date for a keynote speech this year is September 13, which is the day after Labor Day in the United States.
We can’t rule out the prospect of delays notwithstanding all we’ve already mentioned. Supply chain challenges encompass a wide range, from shortages to shutdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as we’ve already addressed in detail.
According to a single report, the iPhone 14’s manufacture has been delayed. That report stated that the delays were only affecting the iPhone 14 Max, not the other three modes of the device.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the September launch and release of the iPhone 14 series is currently on schedule. However, he noted that the iPhone 14 Max is “running behind” but the problem is “in control.”
The iPhone, on the other hand, will always take precedence over the company’s other products at Apple.
In terms of revenue, sales, and Wall Street attention, Apple’s iPhone is the company’s most important product. We may see delays in other devices before the iPhone 14 if the supply chain continues to suffer.
