Apple iPhone 14 launch update: The Cupertino-based tech giant Apple is likely to launch 4 new iPhones – iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max on September 6. According to a new report, the brand will also unveil the Apple Watch Series 8 and the 10th Gen iPad during the Apple event in September.
“As per Max Winebach, a popular tipster, the iPhone 14 series will go on sale in India and across the world starting 16 September after 10 days of the official launch. In addition, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman recently suggested that Apple is preparing a pre- recorded video for the iPhone 14 and Watch Series 8 launch event,” the BGR India reported.
According to the report, 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 brand is also expected to replace the iPhone 13 mini with a Max version that could lead to a price hike of about $300, the report further added. According to the report, the upcoming iPhone 14 series will come with several improvements, including a new design over the Pro model, a better camera, and more. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are also said to come with a taller profile and better camera module to fit the new internals.
According to a report from MacRumors, while the rear cameras usually get all the love and attention with every new iPhone, the front camera for the iPhone 14 will get a major boost in image quality and capabilities. The selfie camera in the iPhone 14 series is said to be a “high-end” camera system that will have autofocus capabilities and a wider ƒ/1.9 aperture compared to the ƒ/2.2 aperture in the current iPhone 13.
The wider aperture paired with autofocus would allow more light to pass through the lens, resulting in overall better quality and improved low-light photography. The autofocus would also help with portrait photos, resulting in crisper and sharper bokeh and detail with the subject, the report added.
