iPhone 14 — Release Date, Price & New Features!

A lot is being said about Apple’s upcoming line-up, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro Max series.

It is thought to feature larger display sizes than its predecessors.

Also, This would be the first time in history that a Korean company would make an iPhone’s front-facing camera.

A recent report from a Korean trade paper indicates that Apple has opted for LG Innotek’s components for its front-facing selfie camera rather than an unnamed Chinese company and Japan’s Sharp, its usual partners.

When are the iPhone 14 series coming out?

According to the Apple-focused website iDropNews, the forthcoming iPhone 14 will be unveiled on September 14.

Apple hasn’t confirmed or denied anything surrounding the leak, but the date would fit with its history of iPhone releases.

From what I understand, Apple has something planned for ‘Week 37’, iDropNews writes.

But considering the iPhone 13 was released on September 13.

The iPhone 11 was revealed on September 10, and the iPhone XS was revealed on September 12; this leaked date seems likely.

If things go as planned, we’d expect to see the iPhone 14 make its debut in September 2022.

Gonna look like?

Upcoming iPhone 14 and iPhone 14Pro could feature a high-end selfie camera with built-in autofocus.

Apple will spend three times more on the expensive LG Innotek front camera to get this selfie camera upgrade.

Screens

Apple struck a deal with Chinese display maker BOE, industry insiders revealed.

The contract is worth CNY50 million and 25% of OLED displays, designated for the vanilla iPhone 14 smartphone.

BOE will provide only 6.1″ panels, meaning the bigger iPhone 14Max and the iPhone Pro duo will still only use screens manufactured by LG and Samsung.
