The iPhone 14 release date is gaining momentum with the news that Apple supplier Foxconn has started production of the iPhone 14 this month. This is still a trial production run, but means that work has begun on producing the new iPhone 14.
That would keep the estimated iPhone 14 release date in line with a September release date, if all of the hardware is available and production runs smoothly.
The iPhone 14 Pro schematic image (green layout at the top of the page) was leaked by both Weibo and John Prosser in the video embedded below. In the video John comments that “Bruh … you can see that it’s actually bigger than everyone thought. Like … this is oddly big.”
Ross Young said on Twitter “We now believe Apple will have a hole + pill design on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models. The smaller hole will not be invisible...The two hole concept will be unique to Apple, like the notch, not similar to all the pill models from Huawei…”
The first Apple event for 2022 supposedly has a date set for March 8, says Catlin McGarry at Gizmodo. She said that the rumor is that Apple will be talking about a 5G iPhone SE and updated iPad Air.
Mark Gurman at Bloomberg backs this up by saying “Apple Inc. is targeting a date on or near March 8 to unveil a new low-cost iPhone and an updated iPad, according to people with knowledge of the matter, kicking off a potentially record-setting year for product launches.” Which begs the question ... whate else will there be? The long-awaited Apple VR/AR headset? HHHMMMMM???
