The iPhone 14 is a device about which we already know a lot before its anticipated autumn release. Even while some leakers are starting to speculate on when Apple’s major phone release will take place, the iPhone 14 release date is not one of them.

We can cobble together an iPhone 14 release date timeline based on prior launches and a few relevant rumors, so two people can play at that game.

Most leaks about the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro continue to emphasize features. For instance, the Pro models may do away with the notch that has been synonymous with iPhones in favor of two cutouts, while the iPhone 14 Pro may have a 48MP primary camera upgrade. Meanwhile, the iPhone 14 Max, a 6.7-inch variation of Apple’s ordinary iPhone, is set to succeed the tiny variant of the previous two years.

Despite not being official, the facts appear very reliable. The release date of the iPhone 14 is less certain; most Apple observers mention an unspecified debut date somewhere in the autumn. Since September is the month Apple regularly unveils its new phones, the more adventurous predictions will make this assumption.

We don’t need to wait for release date rumors to completely form in order to make some reasonable assumptions about when the iPhone 14 may be released. Even while Apple tends to keep a lot of information under wraps, it does have a way of working that makes determining an exact date rather simple, even before rumors can confirm whether we’re on the right track.

Here is a look at possible release dates for the iPhone 14 based on how Apple has handled other iPhone releases as well as other factors that may affect the timing of the device. If you’re curious how the iPhone lineup will look after the iPhone 14 is released, we’ve also figured out which iPhone models Apple could stop making and which ones it will probably keep selling.

iPhone 14 release date: When previous iPhones have launched

Nobody knows what the future holds, but Apple’s recent past holds some clues as to what could be coming out of Cupertino and when. Here’s a quick recap of when Apple has scheduled the last eight iPhone launches.

iPhone 6, iPhone 6 PlusSeptember 9, 2014September 19, 2014

To identify the trend in the chart, you don’t necessarily need to have excellent pattern recognition abilities. Since 2014, Apple has released its new iPhones in September all but one year. Even more specifically, that announcement typically comes within the first two weeks of September.

There has only ever been one exception, which is 2020. You may recall that the coronavirus pandemic’s first year significantly affected manufacturing, including the production of the iPhone. Therefore, Apple changed the date of the iPhone 12 unveiling event to October 13.

The release of the iPhone 12 wasn’t the only odd aspect. Apple likewise had to space out the launch of its recently unveiled models. Ten days after the announcement event, Apple released the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, although the iPhone 12 small and iPhone 12 Pro Max weren’t available until November.

The arrival of the iPhone 12 was Apple’s third consecutive time delaying its phone launches. The iPhone XR debuted in 2019, a month after the release of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, whereas the iPhone X didn’t arrive until early November 2018, about six weeks after the release of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

Things returned to normal in 2021 with the simultaneous release of all four iPhone 13 models (though there were supply issues, particularly for the iPhone 13 Pro models through the holiday shopping season). Let’s suppose that Apple like to debut every iPhone model at the same time unless the company or rumor mills say otherwise.

You notice a trend once again when you look at the chart above. Apple typically plans to release its phones to the public 10 to 11 days after revealing them to an eager public. Although there are certain outliers, like as the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, you’d anticipate the iPhone 14 to follow a similar trend.

When will the new iPhone 14 be available?

LeaksApplePro, who claims to have heard that Apple would have a product event in the 37th week of the year, is the source of the most concrete iPhone 14 release date rumor at this time. Thus, the week of September 12 is shown.

According to a report from Jeff Pu, an analyst for Haitong International Securities, the new iPhone 14 Max model is experiencing manufacturing problems, which might postpone the phone’s delivery. More recently, display expert Ross Young said that the iPhone 14 Max’s screen shipments are falling behind those of the comparably sized iPhone 14 Pro Max.

If such speculations are accurate, Apple may release this fall’s phones in phases, similar to what it did with the iPhone 12 launch two years ago. Before assuming such is the case, however, we would want to learn more specifics about the manufacturing delays.

Date that we anticipate Apple will unveil the iPhone 14

We only have Apple’s historical performance to rely on in the lack of any other release date speculations for the iPhone 14. And based on past events, it is likely that Apple will have an event to unveil the iPhone 14 models in the first two weeks of September 2022.

Another useful fact about Apple is that, if feasible, it likes to schedule its news conferences on Tuesdays. This is important for a launch event in early September since the first Tuesday of September, which is September 6 this year, occurs just after the U.S. Labor Day vacation. That eliminates September 6 as a potential date for the iPhone 14 announcement since Apple normally avoids scheduling a three-day weekend before major product releases if at all possible.

Therefore, there is only one day that the iPhone 14 may be unveiled if you accept the following assumptions: 1) Apple holds its iPhone events in early September; 2) Apple prefers Tuesdays when it comes to doing product events; and 3) Apple won’t do anything immediately after Labor Day.

We anticipate the iPhone 14 to be unveiled on September 13. The planned release date for the iPhone 14 is September 22, which might be the day the new versions go on sale if Apple sticks to its track record of releasing the phone 10 days or so later.

We want to be clear that this date is unofficial and might change when additional details regarding Apple’s iPhone intentions are revealed. However, if you want to start making preparations right now, September 13 seems like the best day to keep an eye on Cupertino.

Release of the iPhone 14: Potential delays

Of Nevertheless, even if further leaks corroborate or refute our assumptions, the iPhone 14 release date is not set in stone. It’s important to keep a look out for one problem in particular since it has the potential to delay the release of the iPhone 14 longer than anticipated.

The epidemic is not gone, and instances might rise once again despite the relaxation of mask regulations and other Covid-19 measures. Look in China where, during the spring when Covid-19 cases surged, whole cities went into lockdown. That is especially pertinent to Apple’s plans for the iPhone 14, which is made in China.

There were worries that the manufacture of the iPhone 14 would be delayed when the city of Zhengzhou earlier in April sealed down several regions close to Foxconn’s iPhone assembly facility. However, the chairman of Foxconn said in late May that the lockdown’s effects on his business were “minimal.” That is seen as a positive indication that the iPhone 14 release date is on schedule.

Supply chain rumors suggest that Apple has lined up a large number of display vendors for the panels it will utilize in this year’s iPhones if you’re looking for more positive indications. We see no reason to alter our premise that Apple is aiming for a September launch timeframe given the reports’ assurance that the panels will arrive on schedule.
