The iPhone 14 release date is an ever-changing estimate, based on rolling rumors and confirmed news week in and week out. Right now the iPhone 14 release date for all 14 models remains at early September of 2022, since most of Apple’s Fall events happen in the first half of September.
UPDATE: China had instituted a lockdown due to the spreading pandemic, and this means that iPhone production facilities in Shenzhen are closed. It appears now in a new report from Bloomberg that “Foxconn’s two Shenzhen campuses, one of which makes iPhones, will partly resume activity, according to a statement Wednesday.”
This would indicate that early iPhone 14 testing is happening. Small production batches allow for a production + testing + design revamp based on early results. This is normal before mass-production begins to ensure that large production batches will work well.
The current iPhone 14 rumors start with the notion that the iPhone 14 Pro might not have a 5G upgrade. The Snapdragon X70 5G Modem-RF System release date might happen after iPhone 14 Pro needs to begin production, according to Tom’s Guide.
The iPhone 14 Pro might not get a 48-megapixel main camera according to Weibo user It’s Fiat, It's a trusted leaker of iPhone information. It’s Fiat is saying that it will have the same IMX703 sensors as the iPhone 13 Pro.
