New iPhone season is coming up fast. According to a report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, a source usually well reliable when it comes to Apple rumors, Apple is apparently set to hold a launch event next month on September 7. The event could feature the iPhone 14 lineup.
In addition to the news of the timing for the event, Gurman also believes that Apple has started filming segments for this event. Apple declined to comment, but it’s believed that retail employees have been told to prepare for a product launch on September 16, which might be when iPhone 14 comes out.
Rumors have it that the main iPhone 14 should look just like the iPhone 13, with the exception being a bigger 6.7-inch iPhone 14 model to replace the iPhone 13 Mini. The iPhone 14 Pro, though, should have the biggest changes. Its notch is expected to replaced with a pinhole for the FaceID sensors, improving screen real-estate.
That’s all in addition to a faster chip for iPhone 14 Pro, according to Gurman. The regular iPhone 14, though, should keep the A15 chip. As for cameras, iPhone 14 Pro should be a jump over the iPhone 12 Pro with a 48MP wide-angle lens, and a 12MP ultrawide and telephoto lens.
This event is expected to be online and virtual but it won’t be surprising if some media were invited to Apple’s campus for hands-on time. Apple’s last event was back in June at WWDC when major software updates for iPads, iPhones, Macs, iPads, Apple Watches, were announced. This September event is likely what will showcase the new hardware for the previously announced software.
