Numerous reports have surfaced over the past week suggesting that Apple should launch iPhone 14 series sooner than expected. According to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, the Apple iPhone 14 series would be unveiled at a pre-recorded event on September 7 and will go on sale on September 16.
Ming-Chi Kuo, a known Apple analyst, has recently revealed the possible reasons why Apple won’t release its new iPhone 14 models on the second Tuesday in September this year. According to Kuo, “The global recession risk is still growing and unpredictable, so announcing/shipping the iPhone as soon as possible may minimize the impact of recession risk on demand.” (via 9to5Mac)
Recall that on September 14 of last year, Apple introduced the Apple iPhone 13 series, and ten days later, the phones were on sale. Most Apple events since the Covid-19 pandemic’s start have been held online.
Gurman adds that Apple might host two events this autumn. The expert claims that the September event will be focused on the new iPhone 14 models and Apple Watch Series 8, while the October event will be geared for the Mac and iPad.
If these reports are accurate, there will be four models in the Apple iPhone 14 series: the Apple iPhone 14, the Apple iPhone 14 Max (there won’t be a mini version this year or in the future), the Apple iPhone 14 Pro, and the Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max. Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst, Apple may ship the upcoming iPhone 14 series from factories in India and China simultaneously.
