It’s around that time of the year when Apple pulls the wrap off its new iPhones. Following the successful launch of the iPhone 13 lineup in September 2021, industry experts and fans have eagerly awaited its successor.
If you’re planning to upgrade your iPhone this year, you’ll be excited to hear that Apple seems all set to release the next generation of iPhones. Below, we’ll discuss when Apple will launch the iPhone 14 series.
When Is Apple Releasing the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro?
Apple has sent out invites for an in-person event scheduled for September 7. The Cupertino-based company likes to give fancy names to its events; this time, it’s called “Far Out.” The event will be held at the Steve Jobs Theater at the Apple Park in Cupertino, California, from 10 AM PDT.
However, you shouldn’t expect the iPhone 14 models to go on sale on the same day. If previous years are any indicator, Apple starts accepting preorders for the iPhone in the United States a few days after the event (usually on a Friday), with sales starting an entire week later.
Why We Expect to See the iPhone 14 at Apple’s “Far Out” Event
As usual, Apple doesn’t reveal what it’s going to launch, but if history is anything to go by, we should see a follow-up to Apple’s iPhone 13 series. Any Apple devotee knows the company typically unveils new iPhones in September—a trend that started as early as 2012.
Except for 2020, of course, when the company had to delay the launch by a month due to pandemic-related supply chain issues that devastated dozens of industries worldwide.
Fortunately, no rumors have pointed to a delayed launch this year; therefore, we expect to see Apple’s next-gen iPhone 14 series launched at the event. Speaking of rumors, industry speculators have not kept their mouths shut about what the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro could bring to the table.
Besides the usual hardware upgrades, the top-of-the-line iPhone 14 Pro is rumored to ditch the controversial notch that Apple introduced with the iPhone X in 2017—something we’ve all been patiently waiting for. Besides that, you can expect Apple to introduce a couple of new features, as has been the norm. Here’s everything we know about iPhone 14 series so far.
What Else Should You Expect From the iPhone 14 Launch?
A new iPhone launch is exactly what almost everyone expects to see at Apple’s September events. However, Apple also uses the iPhone launch event to announce a new generation of products across select product lines.
For instance, Apple’s 2021 iPhone 13 series launch saw the company unveil new iPads and three Apple Watch models. So, you may want to save the date (and money) if you plan to upgrade your iPad or Apple Watch.
