Apple may not have officially said anything regarding the iPhone 14 models, but we have acquired a lot of information through the leaks. You must have seen some of these rumors if you use Twitter.

If you are an ardent Apple user, you must be curious to know everything about the upcoming iPhone 14 series. What are you waiting for? Scroll down to read all the iPhone 14 rumors that we have gathered from around the internet.
iPhone 14 Launch Date
There has been no official word on the launch date of the iPhone 14. However, we can try to make an educated guess about the release date. Even though there are many iPhone 14 rumors regarding the release date, we cannot trust them all. To predict the launch date of the iPhone 14, you need to understand the release pattern of iPhones. Here are the release dates of the previous iPhones:
- iPhone XS, XS Max: September 2018
- iPhone XR: October 2018
- iPhone 11, Pro, Pro Max: September 2019
- iPhone 12, Mini, Pro: November 2020
- iPhone 13, Mini, Pro: September 2021
Out of the five series mentioned above, three have been released in September. Similarly, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 series were also released in September 2016 and 2017. There are chances that the iPhone 14 will be released on 23 September 2022. However, this is just speculation. Until then, let us wait for any official news on the release of the iPhone 14.
iPhone 14 Price
While speculating the release date is quite easy, predicting the price of a new device is tough. Since there is no official word on the price of the iPhone 14, we will have to rely on the iPhone 14 rumors floating around.
There are chances that the iPhone 14 will cost as much as iPhone 13. Thus, we can predict that the regular iPhone 14 will be priced at $799, and the iPhone 14 Pro will be priced at $999. One of the major iPhone 14 rumors floating around is that there will be no iPhone 14 Mini. Yes! You read that right. We will discuss it in the next section.
There are also leaks regarding the iPhone 14 price hike. According to some rumors, while the regular iPhone 14 will be priced at $799, the price of the iPhone 14 Pro will be $899. However, there will be an increase in the price of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. There are rumors that the iPhone 14 Pro will be priced at $1099, which is $100 more than the iPhone 13 Pro.
iPhone 14 Max to Replace iPhone 14 Mini
Apple introduced the Mini models starting with iPhone 12 in 2020. Failing to match everyone’s expectations, the iPhone 12 mini made very poor sales. This did not deter the company from releasing the iPhone 13 mini in 2021. However, iPhone 13 mini was considered a failure since its sale was even less than the company estimated.
One of the major iPhone 14 rumors is that there will be no iPhone 14 mini. There are chances that the company will be replacing the iPhone 14 mini with iPhone 14 Max. However, there is no word on whether the company will be dropping the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini models.
iPhone 14 Design
Similar to the date of release and price, there is no word from Apple on the design changes in iPhone 14. All the information we have here is from the iPhone 14 rumors all over the internet. One of the major leaks is Jon Prosser, whose Front Page Tech Video tells us about the expected design of the iPhone 14.
According to Prosser, iPhone 14 will have flat edges. This will make the new model look like a crossover between iPhone 12 and iPhone 4. Prosser also claims that there will be no camera bumps, and the volume buttons will be round. However, another leak claims that there will be no design changes in the iPhone 14.
One of the iPhone 14 rumors is a picture of molds depicting the size of the various iPhone 14 models. It is clearly seen that there will be no Phone 14 mini. Thus, Apple is doing away with a 5.4-inch phone in 2022. Now, we are expecting four models in the iPhone 14 series. From these models, iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro will be 6.1-inch in size, and iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be 6.7-inch in size.
Every year Apple releases an iPhone with only a set number of colors. People get excited over the colors that will be available each year. One of the iPhone 14 rumors had to be regarding the colors lined up for this year.
According to a leak, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will be available in purple, among other colors like black, blue, white, etc. There are chances for this rumor to be accurate since Apple has used purple color before for the standard and Pro models. Apart from this, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will be available in graphite, gold, silver, and purple. However, we have to wait until the official announcement to be sure about these rumors.
Use of Titanium
One of the iPhone rumors is that iPhone 14 will have a titanium alloy design. While Apple has used titanium in Apple Watch designs, this will be the first time that Titanium will be used in an iPhone. The decision to use titanium can be due to its scratch-resistant quality. Titanium is also stronger than steel and aluminum.
There was a leaked image of the front glass panels of the iPhone 14 models. According to the leaked image, iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will continue to have top-notch design. However, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will have a notch-less design. The image depicts that iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will have pill-shaped hole cutouts instead of the notch.
iPhone 14 Touch ID
Do you miss the Touch ID feature on iPhone? Then this is one of the iPhone rumors that you will love. There is a chance that the iPhone 14 will bring back the Touch ID. This time, it is rumored that the Touch ID will not be integrated into the power button but will be embedded in the display. This will be like the fingerprint sensor available in Android phones.
However, there is no surety whether this rumor will be true. Some major Apple analysts assume that there will be no iPhone with Touch ID for another few years. Since Apple has perfected the Face ID feature in the new update of iOS 15.4, it has been able to recognize the user even with a face mask on. This makes the comeback of Touch ID even more difficult.
iPhone 14 Cameras
A major thing iPhones are known for is the camera quality. One of the iPhone 14 rumors making rounds is about the change in the camera quality. It is rumored that the iPhone 14 Pro models will have a 48-megapixel main camera. This will be a great jump from the iPhone 13 main camera, which is only 12-megapixel.
This rumor has been confirmed by many other leaks as well. However, one thing to note is that the change in the camera will only be in the Pro models. The standard iPhone 14 models will have a regular 12-megapixel camera.
There is another rumor that iPhone 14 cameras may introduce periscope-style zoom. If not the standard iPhone 14, this zoom camera can be introduced in the Pro models. However, Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst, states that the periscope style zoom will not be introduced until 2023. Let us wait for any new updates on this rumor.
iPhone 14 Storage
There are many iPhone 14 rumors regarding storage. According to Kuo, the iPhone 14 models are going to have 6GB RAM. However, there is a leak that the base models of the iPhone 14 will use LPDDR 4X RAM, and the iPhone 14 Pro models will use LPDDR 5 RAM.
There are rumors that the storage of iPhone 14 models will start at 128GB and increase to 1TB for the Pro models. There are also rumors that the storage may increase up to 2TB for the Pro models, but we are skeptical about this update.
Analyst Jeff Pu notes that the standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will start at 64GB of storage. However, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will be starting at 256GB. We will have to wait for an official announcement to see whose predictions come true.
iPhone 14 5G
One of the iPhone 14 rumors is regarding the new 5G chips. There are rumors that Apple will be equipping the new iPhones with a new 5G chip. This will result in less power consumption and will help in maintaining a good performance. According to Taiwan’s Economic Daily News, a company from Taiwan has received the order of manufacturing Apple’s 5G chips for its iPhone 14 series.
However, there is a possibility that these 5G chips may not debut in 2022. There are chances that we will see the 5G chip in 2023 with the release of the iPhone 15 series.
iPhone 14 Software
If Apple sticks to the regular pattern, there will be a new software launch with the iPhone 14. Ever since iOS 15.5 beta 3 has been released, there have been rumors regarding the release of iOS 16. Beta 3 is the last stage in the development of iOS 15. This points to the arrival of the iOS 16. There is no official word from Apple, but we assume that iOS 16 will be released with the iPhone 14 series in September 2022.
