Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max release date: The US-based tech giant Apple is likely launching its next-gen iPhone series a week earlier this year. Usually, the company launches its latest iPhone lineup on the first or second Tuesday of September every year, except in 2020. This time we might see four iPhone 14 models, including a 6.1-inch iPhone 14, a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max on September 7.
According to a report from MacRumors, Apple is aiming to hold its first fall event on Wednesday, September 7, reports Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. The event will focus on the iPhone 14 models and the Apple Watch Series 8. The standard iPhone 14 models are expected to get few changes, but the iPhone 14 Pro models will include updated camera technology, the removal of the notch in favor of a pill-shaped and hole-punch cutout, an A16 chip, and more.
The report further mentioned that Apple is planning to release a total of four iPhone 14 models, including a 6.1-inch iPhone 14, a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max. Notably, there will be no 5.4-inch iPhone mini as the smaller iPhone 12 and 13 mini devices have not sold as well as expected.
There are three Apple Watch models in the works, including the new Apple Watch Series 8, a refreshed Apple Watch SE, and an all-new Pro version of the Apple Watch that is expected to feature a larger body, updated design, and more rugged build. There are also plans for a new low-cost iPad, updated iPad Pro models, a Mac Pro with Apple silicon chips and more, but these devices could be saved for a second October event.
If Apple does indeed move ahead with a September 7 event, we can expect to get official invites approximately one week before, perhaps before the end of August. Apple has already been preparing the pre-recorded event, indicating that it will again take place virtually rather than in person. Also, there could be an in-person component with some members of the media invited, the report further added.
Another report from MacRumors reported that,the iPhone 14 Pro will start at $1,099 (up from $999) and the iPhone 14 Pro Max will be priced at $1,199. The rising component costs and Apple’s determination to differentiate Pro and non-Pro iPhones, will see the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max increase to $1099 and $1199 respectively. The tech giant is also expected to replace the iPhone 13 mini with a Max version could lead to a price hike of about $300.
