iPhone 14 Release Date, Price, Features, and Leaks

iPhone 14!!! Just like every year, we are excited about the new iPhone models from Apple. And, just like every year, you might be wondering what changes will be seen in new iPhone models and how much the iPhone 2022 will cost.

Well, the rumors about the iPhone 14 price, features, design, display, and camera have been surfacing in the market even before the iPhone 13 line-up hit the market last year. However, these rumors become anticipation as new leaks and reports come from industry analysts as the time of release comes closer.

Since you are as excited as we are about the iPhone 14, we have done the legwork for you and compiled all the iPhone 14 leaks and new features in this article so that you don’t have to do your own digging.

What Are the New Features of the iPhone 14?

It is highly predicted that Apple will not launch the iPhone 14 Mini (5.4-inch) since the previous Mini models have not been received positively by customers. So, Apple is focusing on iPhones with larger displays, i.e., iPhones with a 6.1-inch and a 6.7-inch. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro will have a 6.1-inch display, while the iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max will have a 6.7-inch display.

Ever since the launch of the iPhone X in 2017, there has been a notch at the top front to house all the necessary equipment to power Face ID. This trend appears to be ending with Apple’s new 2022 iPhone 14 Pro models. The new design will eliminate the annoying notch from the iPhone. However, it is a rumor, and many industry analysts have stated that the Cupertino tech giant has gone for dual circular holes that will have a front-facing camera and essential components for Face ID.

Nonetheless, this change is limited to iPhone 14 Pro models. Standard models will have the same notch as previous iPhones. There are also rumors about a new design of the back camera which will eliminate the camera bump due to the thicker body of the phone.

There are several leaks and rumors about the upcoming iPhone 2022. This article will tell you about the iPhone 14 features, the iPhone 14 design, and everything you need to know.

What Is the iPhone 14 Gonna Look Like?

Notch-Less iPhone Display

Many reviewers and customers have criticized the notch in iPhones. Its competitors, like Samsung, have even made fun of it. Last year, Apple reduced the size of the notch, but it was not completely removed. Finally, now it is being said that Apple will eliminate the notch that encompasses Face ID hardware.

Industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo was the first one to make this prediction in March. He stated that instead of the traditional notch, Apple would use a hole-punch style camera design that we have seen in many other smartphones on the market.

After a few months, leaker Dylandkt suggested that instead of a hole-punch design, iPhone 14 Pro models would have a capsule-shaped front-facing camera and Face ID. This was further clarified by display analyst Ross Young, who said that the iPhone 14 could have both a circular cutout and a capsule-shaped cutout. The circular cutout will feature a front-facing camera, and the capsule-shaped cutout will have Face ID components.

Apple may be looking into the possibility of shifting some of the Face ID hardware to under the screen. This would allow for much smaller cutouts and more usable screen space. Some analysts believe that Apple is currently working on the way to deploy the Face ID technology with an under-display camera system, but they may not be ready to bring it out in the iPhone 14 models that are set to release this year.

ProMotion Display

Does the iPhone 14 have a 120Hz display? Last year, there were early rumors that claimed all four upcoming iPhone models in 2022 would include a 120Hz screen; this ended up not being the case. It seems like ProMotion displays will be available exclusively with iPhone Pro models.

According to Ross Younge, the reason behind only iPhone 14 Pro models featuring ProMotion technology could be the lack of display supply. Thus, he has made it clear that a 120Hz refresh rate would be packed into the high-end models of this year.

Korean tech blog The Elec has also confirmed that the iPhone models that will come in 2023 will have at least one model that will have an LTPS OLED display, excluding the 120Hz ProMotion display. This information matches up with what Young had to say before. Industry analyst Jeff Pu has claimed that all iPhone models will have ProMotion displays, but he is often questioned about reliability, so take this information with a grain of salt.

Will the iPhone 14 Have a New Design?

Body Design

When we talk about the body design, the iPhone 14 will inherit its body from previous iPhone models, i.e., a flat-edged design. According to the popular Jon Prossor, the iPhone may introduce a thicker chassis which will eliminate the camera bump and round volume buttons. However, this may not be right, according to the latest leaks of the iPhone 14’s body.

So-called renders of the iPhone 14 line-up surfaced in March, and it’s suggested that the standard iPhone 14 models will be similar to the previous generation. There don’t seem to be any design changes, with them retaining a similar look to the iPhone 13 models. There will be a notch as well as the same bump on the back with the diagonal camera layout.

A photo of what’s allegedly the moulds for the iPhone 14 surfaced in April. They give us a clearer look at the very different sizes and shapes of all the iPhone 14 models. The mouldsare probably being designed to be used in case production. But if true, the pic does seem to corroborate all that was leaked from earlier this year about the iPhone 14.

As discussed, the iPhone 14 Mini is not happening. The iPhone 14 models will consist of two 6.1-inch display iPhones and two 6.7-inch display iPhones, with both models also featuring a camera bump that is five percent larger than previous models. Thus, cases for the iPhone 13 will not fit on these upcoming models.

Size Options 

As it is already clear, this year, there will be no iPhone 14 Mini. Apple is done with the 5.4-inch iPhone due to low demand among customers. Thus, if you want a smaller iPhone, the iPhone 13 Mini is the only option, and Apple is focusing on larger-sized iPhones.

According to the latest reports and rumors, there will be four iPhone 14 models. And their sizes will be as follows:

iPhone 14: 6.1-inch

iPhone 14 Pro: 6.1-inch

iPhone 14 Max: 6.7-inch

iPhone Pro Max: 6.7-inch


For the last few months, there have been several rumors about a new color for the iPhone, i.e., purple. The 14th generation iPhone will allegedly be available in a purple finish that changes tone according to the lighting. However, there are no strong rumors or evidence behind this.

Apple has used the same color for iPhone models before, but they have often been different shades of the same color. Perhaps the rumored purple iPhone in 2022 is true after all. Rumor has it that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will come in purple, black, blue, white, and purple. High-end models, the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max, are rumored to come in purple, silver, graphite, and gold.


As per the latest reports from JP Morgan, Apple is expected to release the iPhone 14 line-up with a high-quality titanium alloy chassis. This could be true since Apple has previously used titanium for the Apple Watch. However, this would be their first time using this material for iPhones.

Titanium is a strong, lightweight metal. It builds up less corrosion and scratches than both steel and aluminum, plus it’s stronger than them too.

Lightning Port

There are rumors that Apple will be introducing a USB-C port in the next generation of iPhones. However, it is not clear if they will be doing so on their next release in 2022. There are also reports that Apple may remove the Lightning port completely from the iPhone 14 to render a portless design and offer a charging option over MagSafe only. But this may not be true. Even if this is true, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will likely get a Lightning port.

Camera Quality

Just like every year, the iPhone will also get an amazing camera update this year. We may see an improved Ultra-Wide camera. The iPhone 14 Pro devices may see improved wide-angle and telephoto lenses. There is another prediction from analyst Kuo that iPhone 14 Pro models could be packed with a 48-megapixel wide camera, which would render much better picture quality than the current camera. In addition, it will allow 8K video recording.

The iPhone 14 Pro models’ 48-megapixel cameras can also take 12MP shots with something called the pixel-binning process. Pixel binning links multiple pixels together, which results in a super-pixel with better sensitivity and less noise. With this feature, the new iPhone 14 Pro models may be able to take pictures of high quality with a resolution of 48 megapixels in daylight, while they are able to use a pixel-binning process in low light for higher quality images.

This will allow high-end iPhone 14 Pro devices to take pictures of high quality with a resolution of 48MP in daylight or good lighting conditions. However, in the case of low lighting conditions, it will use the pixel-binning process to produce a high-quality 12MP photo by using a 48MP lens.

Ming-Chi Kuo also stated that the 8K video recording on the iPhone 14 will produce amazing results in that the recorded video can be displayed on 8K TVs and displays. In addition, this video resolution will enable the iPhone to create videos that will be suitable for mixed reality and augmented reality gadgets that Apple is planning to launch in the future. However, this feature, with a 48MP wide lens, will be limited to iPhone 14 Pro models only. The standard iPhone 14 devices will have an improved camera setup.

The front cameras of all iPhone 14 models released this year are expected to come with a wider aperture (f/1.9) and autofocus. The wider aperture would allow more light to reach the sensor. This will allow you to capture great shots with improved depth. The improved autofocus will also impact the focus while video calling.


A16 Chip

New models of the iPhone typically have new A-series chips, but Apple is expected to change that up this year. The only model to get the new and faster A16 chip will be the 14 Pro. This would be sad for people who want to upgrade from iPhone 13 to iPhone 14 standard models, as they will be powered by the same old A15 bionic chip. This will bring a major difference between the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14.


Ming-Chi Kuo said that the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro models will have 6GB of RAM. This would be an upgrade for the non-Pro iPhone of 2022 since the iPhone 13 Pro models are powered by the same amount of RAM.

Modem Snapdragon X65

Apple’s next iPhone is set to contain the first 10 gigabit 5G modem in a smartphone, and the company is partnering with Qualcomm for this feature. This powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 modem is the first of its kind in the smartphone industry.

Satellite Connectivity

The powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 will allow users to access satellite connectivity features. It performs as a modem to make devices respond faster. Along with all these, it is said that Apple will likely introduce a new feature in its emergency feature—satellite connectivity. This function will allow users to send texts while they are out of the network in order to report serious emergencies.

Thus, users would be able to send an emergency message via satellite. This SOS function will be a new communication feature from Apple. However, the feature will be limited to the USA for a while before it applies all over the world. Plus, the length of the words in the message will also be limited.

Does iPhone 14 Has 2 TB Storage? iPhone 14 Storage Options

Apple introduced a new 1TB storage tier with the iPhone 13 Pro models, and reports say that with the iPhone 14 update, Apple may double it to 2TB. This report comes from sources that are not usually credible. Therefore, it should be treated with caution until it’s confirmed by a more reputable source.


Is the iPhone 14 a Flip Phone?

There are many rumors in the market about Apple developing a flip iPhone, but it will take two more years to launch that device. So, we don’t expect the iPhone 14 to be a flip phone.

Will the iPhone 14 have USB-C?

Apple will likely continue to use the Lightning port. There will be no USB-C port this year. Apple has introduced a Type-C charging port for new iPad models, but we will not get it on the iPhones until the next few years.

How Much Will the iPhone 14 Cost?

The price of the iPhone 14 may start at $799 for the base model and go up to $1,199 for the high-end Pro model.

iPhone 14$799$899
iPhone 14 Max$899$999
iPhone 14 Pro$999$1,099
iPhone 14 Pro Max$1,099$1,199

You will have to pay extra few bucks for the 1 TB or 2 TB variant.

When will the iPhone 14 launch in the USA?

As per tradition, Apple will likely launch the iPhone 14 series at its September event. It is possible that the iPhone 14 will be released in the first or third week of September, and the expected dates are September 6, 2022, or September 23, 2022.

Is the iPhone 14 Different?

There will be minor differences in appearance and design, as they are the same as on the iPhone 13. The iPhone 14 will be different in terms of performance. The iPhone 14 Pro models will be packed with the A16 Bionic chip, which will be faster. Plus, iPhone 14 models will have camera upgrades.
