the WWDC keynote (all info) is long gone and we now know everything about iOS 16 and its new features. At least almost everything, one display feature hasn’t been addressed directly, the chances of us having it in the iPhoneiPhone 14 will see, don’t look bad.

if AppleApple does not break with its tradition, the iPhone 14 will probably be announced in mid-September 2022, and it should be in stores about a week later. Apple almost always launches its new iPhones in September of each year, with the exception of 2020 due to COVID-19. It’s possible we’ll see similar delays this year too – while the iPhone 14 Pro went into test production on time, the non-Pro models appear to have been slightly delayed – but we’d be surprised if Apple didn’t experience these issues get under control in time for autumn.

We expect big changes: everything indicates that the 5.4-inch iPhone mini range will be discontinued: Ming-Chi Kuo, for example, has predicted that Apple will discontinue the mini iPhone in order to introduce the Max in 2022. The iPhone 12 mini and 13 mini are said to have sold poorly, so this move is understandable. There will therefore continue to be four models:
We also have information that supports this theory. According to our source (who doesn’t want to remain secret) there will be no iPhone 14 Mini this year, but an iPhone 14 Max.
In terms of price, we expect the standard iPhone 14 model to start at around €800, while the iPhone 14 Pro model will cost between $1,000 and $1,100.
On the iPhone 13 series, Apple reduced the notch by 20 percent. This year it’s set to be replaced by something else, at least on the Pro models. Instead of a cutout at the top of the screen, the 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will have two smaller openings for the front camera and other sensors. We can also confirm this rumor. Regarding the new “Notch”, we also have credible evidence that supports circulating rumors about Apple’s design change – at least for the Pro models.
The idea of Apple getting rid of the Lightning connector on the iPhone and not offering any connectors at all was rumored even before the iPhone 12 was unveiled. With this concept, all electricity would be transmitted wirelessly instead of charging with cables. That would instantly make many accessories and power banks obsolete, but Apple has never shied away from making unpopular choices in the past. That could still become a reality, but not in the near future.
