sources latest from China say that Apple will hold a press conference to introduce the iPhone 14 series on September 13, which is Tuesday – the time when Apple usually introduces its new products.
According to GizChina, the report also added that after the iPhone 14 is launched, Apple will start accepting orders on Friday, September 16 before they hit the shelves the following Friday (September 23). Apple’s event is determined to be moved to September 13 because September 9 (Tuesday) falls on Labor Day in the US.
The price for the iPhone 14 generation is also a topic covered in the report, in which Wedbush Securities CEO Dan Ives predicts Apple will increase the price by $100, making the iPhone 14 series likely to become the most expensive iPhone model since up to now.
Specifically, the price of the iPhone 14 Pro Max can exceed $ 2,000, significantly more expensive than the current peak price of the iPhone 13 Pro Max 1 TB at $ 1,600. This price surpassed $ 2,000 occurred when Apple released a version with 2 TB of memory. For the 1 TB version, the price of the iPhone 14 Pro Max can be around $1,700, which is $100 higher than its respective predecessor.
The iPhone 14 series is expected to have two screen sizes, including 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches. While the iPhone 14 and 14 Max versions only come with the old A15 Bionic chip, the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max use the newer A16 Bionic chip. This is considered a new direction for Apple to optimize the profits from selling iPhones. In addition, the standard iPhone models also have a screen with a notch, while the Pro models have a screen with a circular punch + pill (i-shaped).
