APPLE is plotting a major design overhaul for the latest iPhone, which is currently being secretly developed at its headquarters in California.
But what will the next generation mobile phone look like? We’ve put together a guide based on the latest iPhone 14 rumors and leaks.
What is iPhone 14?
In our opinion, the iPhone 14 is Apple’s next big smartphone.
As always, we can never say exactly what Apple’s plans are, but we are expecting a new iPhone arrival in late 2022.
That’s because Apple does the same thing every year when it comes to iPhones.
In 2022 we are expecting some significant improvements.
That’s because Apple made smaller changes when switching from iPhone 12 to iPhone 13.

So experts say that means Apple is making a big move for the iPhone 14.
iPhone 14 release date – When will the next iPhone come out?
Crucially, Apple is a man of habit, always following a clear pattern for iPhone releases each year.
The big launch event always happens in September and usually falls at the beginning of the month – usually on a Tuesday or Wednesday.
For 2022, we expect the event to take place on Tuesday, September 13, or Wednesday, September 14.
This is followed by iPhone 14 pre-orders on Friday, September 16.
And we expect the actual iPhone 14 release date to be Friday, September 23.
We’ll learn about Apple’s event a week before it happens.
And remember: Apple may also hold an additional event in October or November for other devices.
Of course, we cannot guarantee any of these dates – but they are most likely to happen.
Apple could also change this whole model up a week earlier, holding an event on September 6 or 7 with a September 16 release date.
But we think a slightly later event is more likely.
iPhone 14 news and rumors – features and specifications leaked
We won’t find out exactly what the iPhone 14 will look like until much closer to launch.
And even then, we might still be in the dark – some iPhone news is always a surprise at night.
But we’ve been hearing drips about the mysterious mobile phone.
Apple is said to have finally removed the “notch” at the top of the iPhone – offering an all-screen front for the first time.
It’s part of the rumored iPhone change that will make it look different from the 2021 model.
The design is said to include a pill-shaped hole on the front of the device for the selfie camera.
Renowned TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has hinted that we will see a bezel-less iPhone 14.
And so did longtime Apple leaker and Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman.
Ming-chi Kuo has also said that the high-end iPhones in the 2022 range will use a 48-megapixel sensor for the main camera.
Based on Mac RumorsKuo thinks this will allow for impressive 8K video recording.
The analyst also thinks that the notch on the front screen of the iPhone will be smaller and by 2023, it may have disappeared.
The selfie camera, required for Face ID, may be hidden under the display.
Another Kuo theory is that the screen size options of the iPhone line will decrease in 2022.
Maybe we won’t see the iPhone Mini on sale like in previous years.
Apple is said to be unimpressed with how well the Mini lineup is selling, but could still include a version in its 2021 iPhone lineup.
It is assumed that 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screen sizes are here to stay for the foreseeable future.
Kuo has previously hinted that we could see an under-display fingerprint scanner in future iPhones.
We certainly know a thing or two about the new iPhone.
For starters, it will almost certainly support 5G.
And maybe we’ll get a new Apple-made A-series chip that boosts performance – just like every previous iPhone generation.
iPhone 14 price – How much will the new iPhone cost?
Apple has been pretty consistent with iPhone prices in recent years.
In the US, it remains unchanged, while Britons get a small discount on some models.
Here’s how iPhone Pro prices have changed over the past two years in the UK:
- iPhone 13 Pro – £949
- iPhone 12 Pro – £999
- iPhone 11 Pro – £1,049
And here’s how iPhone Pro Max prices in the UK have fallen:
- iPhone 13 Pro Max – £1,049
- iPhone 12 Pro Max – £1,099
- iPhone 11 Pro Max – £1,149
The iPhone 13 price in the UK and US is:
- iPhone 13 128GB – £779 / $799
- iPhone 13 256GB – £879 / $899
- iPhone 13 512GB – £1,079 / $1,099
And the iPhone 13 Pro price for UK and US is:
- iPhone 13 Pro 128GB – £949 / $999
- iPhone 13 Pro 256GB – £1,049 / $1,099
- iPhone 13 Pro 512GB – £1,249 / $1,299
- iPhone 13 Pro 1TB – £1,449 / $1,499
So expect similar or identical prices for the iPhone 14.
Apple seems to have found a hot spot for its four models, so we don’t expect any wild departures from these prices.
