iPhone 14 Specifications and Release Date

iPhone 14 Specifications and Release Date

Apple iPhone 14 will be launched on September 7, 2022 (Unofficial) at $799-$899 for 128 GB. The price varies a bit. For 256 GB, it is $899-$999 and $999-$1099 for 512 GB.

We expect the phone to come in an immersive 6.1 inches (15.49 cm) display. It features a resolution of 1170 x 2532 Pixels allowing you to watch videos or play games with a crystal clear view. In addition, a rumor says that the mobile has 4 GB, 4 GB of RAM + 64 GB of internal storage variants. This high internal storage allows you to store videos, movies, songs, and other stuff.

iPhone 14 Features:


Camera specifications are impressive in this case. We expect that the phone comes with a Dual camera setup on the rear. It will feature 12 MP + 12 MP cameras enabling you to click excellent pictures. Besides, this device will come with a 12 MP + SL 3D camera on the front to tap on selfies and make video calls.

All the models will likely come with a new front camera with an auto-focusing feature. The front camera on all mobiles was fixed-focus. Therefore, it is a welcome upgrade enabling you to capture selfies. Besides, it allows you to make video calls with a deeper depth of field. According to the rumor, the new front camera comes with an f/1.9 aperture instead of the f/2.2 aperture.


The mobile will come with a Hexa-core processor. It allows you to enjoy a smooth and lag-free performance while accessing many apps and playing intense graphics games. In addition, it could run the iOS v15 operating system.

Besides, you can have a decent 3115 mAh battery. These features allow you to play games, listen to songs, watch movies or videos, etc. Hence, you do not need to worry about battery drainage.


Different connectivity options are available, including Wi-Fi 802.11, b/g/n, Mobile Hotspot, v5.0 Bluetooth, and 5G, 4G (supports Indian bands), 3G, and 2G. In addition, it has sensors such as Accelerometer, Gyro, Proximity, Compass, Barometer, and Siri.

Dimensions & weight:

It will have 146.7 mm x 71.5 mm x 7.4 mm dimensions and a weight of about 164 grams. We expect the size as a 6.1-inch.


The mobile is available in purple. Rumour suggests we get the model in a purple shade with a unique finish. It helps to shift tone based on lighting conditions.

Besides, a rumor says it comes in black, white, blue, red, and purple. But it will come in graphite (possibly midnight), gold (possibly starlight), silver, and purple.


An investor's report from JP Morgan Chase says that the mobile features a high-end titanium alloy chassis design. The company has already used titanium for the Apple Watch. But for an iPhone, they will use titanium for the first time. In addition, the material is more scratch-resistant. Besides, it is more robust than both steel and aluminum. Moreover, it is more corrosion resistant.


We expected that high-end iPhones would adopt a vapor chamber thermal system at the beginning of this year. According to the company, it is aggressively testing. But the VC thermal system is essential for the high-end mobile with more robust computing power. Besides, it is necessary for quicker 5G connection speeds. Mobiles from Samsung, Razer, and LG use this technology. It helps to keep a device cooler under heavy stress. However, we are still unsure if the system will support the high requirements. But the company is working on improving it. We expect those high-end models might adopt it soon.

Lightning Port:

According to a rumor, the company wants to remove the Lightning port from the mobile for a portless design. You can complete the charging over MagSafe. But we are unsure if the recent mobiles will support the technology. However, a few mobiles will keep on having a Lightning port.

No Notch and New Face ID Hardware Design (Pro Only):

The company is working to remove the notch that houses the Face ID hardware. But it is for a few devices, especially the Pro models. While introduced in 2017, the notch was a controversial design decision. Since then, it is changing little for the size tweak with the 13th generation.

In March 2021, Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst, said that the 2022 models might not come with a notch. Instead, these can adopt a hole-punch style design which is famous on multiple Android phones. Since then, we can guess what we should expect.

Hole Punch Feature:

Instead of working on a single hole-punch cutout, the company is working on another design. It will feature both a pill-shaped and a circular cutout. Generally, this circular cutout comes with the Face ID dot projector. In addition, the pill-shaped cutout will contain the front camera, Face ID infrared camera, and other components.

iPhone 14 software:

The smartphone features iOS 16 on board. Besides, the company showed the software on stage at WWDC 22. These are a few essential features.

  • Lockscreen customization with widgets, animated images, and cleaner notifications 
  • Share digital keys in the Wallet 
  • More filters for Focus Mode 
  • Edit and Undo Send, Mark as Unread in iMessage 
  • Enhanced voice dictation with an on-screen keyboard 
  • Quick Actions with text captured from the camera 
  • Photos - lift subject from the background with Siri Knowledge 
  • SharePlay in iMessage

The Bottom Line:

Although the company recently announced its launch on September 7, they don't reveal the secret. However, we expect the company to allow us to experience the new iPhone 14 series at this event.

In addition, the company will announce the Watch Series 8, its Pro version, and a new update to the Watch SE. Besides, you can also expect the announcement of the new AirPods 2nd Gen at the event. If the company finds enough bandwidth, you can see a new base iPad at the event.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Q. When was it come out?

It might launch on October 31, 2022 (Expected).

  • Q. What does it look like?

According to design, these appear as the 13th generation models.

  • Q. Will it have three cameras?

The model comes with two cameras — a main wide-angle and an ultra-wide-angle.

Best Apple Watch Buying Guide

Apple Watch Buying Guide

You will want to consider several combinations before buying an Apple Watch. But it can be tricky where to begin. Check out our Apple Watch buying guide to understand what you should do.

First, you should choose the correct model according to your needs. For example, the mid-range SE or the Series 7 model can meet your needs. In addition, you can save your money going with the older Series 3 model.

Apple Watch Buying Guide:

Consider these aspects of the Apple Watch buying guide to purchase the best model.

Size of Apple Watch:

The Series 3 is available in two sizes, 38mm and 42mm. Besides, you can get Series 6 and the SE in 40mm or 44mm. In addition, Series 7 is available in 41mm or 45mm. These models are generally suitable for an average woman and an average man's hand/wrist dimensions.

The height of the model represents the measurements in millimeters. We measure the display size diagonally from corner to corner, in inches. Besides, weight is one of the critical factors to consider. It varies according to the material, size, and if cellular is included.

You should also consider the wearable size and ensure which size is correct for you. Hence, you may need to buy in-store rather than order online. Going to an Apple Store or a reasonably well-appointed reseller can provide in-stock watches you may try on before purchasing.

Remember that the material/color/strap configurations rely on the size. Therefore, the choice in the category can decrease the options in others. Consequently, it is advised to prioritize size above other considerations.


It is also a vital factor you want to consider while buying.

Series 3 color options

  • Aluminum: Silver, Space Grey

SE color options

  • Aluminum: Silver, Space Grey, gold

Series 6 color options

  • Aluminum: silver, gold, Space Grey, blue, red 
  • Stainless steel: plain, gold, Graphite 
  • Titanium: plain, Space Black

Series 7 color options:

  • Aluminum: green, blue, red, Starlight, and Midnight 
  • Stainless steel: plain, gold, Graphite 
  • Titanium: plain, Space Black

Remember that color never affects the cost, unlike the material. Therefore, you can choose whichever version you prefer and which complements your chosen strap.

Strap Size and Color:

Several straps are available to select. Check out the underneath section to understand it.

Solo Loop: English Lavender, Chalk Pink, Marigold, Clover, Dark Cherry, Abyss Blue, Starlight

Braided Solo Loop: Maize, Dark Cherry, English Lavender, Abyss Blue

Sports Band: Clover, Marigold, Clover, Dark Cherry, English Lavender, Abyss Blue, Starlight, Midnight

Sports Loop: Maize/White, Pink Pomelo/Tan, Abyss Blue/Moss Green, Dark Cherry/Forest Green, Product RED, Tornado/Gray

Nike Sports Band: Olive Grey/Cargo, Magic Ember/Crimson, Midnight Navy/Mystic Navy, Anthracite/Black, Pure Platinum/Black

Nike Sports Loop: Cargo Khaki, Summit White, Black

Leather Link: Golden Brown, Dark Cherry, Sequoia Green, Midnight

Modern Buckle (38mm, 40mm, or 41mm only): Wisteria, Chalk, Midnight

Every option is available in many colors and finishes. The Nike+ and Hermès have similar internals and specifications as the standard models. But these don't have the same straps. Besides, these come with a few other minor differences, like a preinstalled Nike app.

The Nike+ model consists of aluminum and is for people who prefer running. However, if you want a sport-oriented model, go with this one. Besides, the Hermès consists of stainless steel. In addition, it contains fancy straps and an Hermès stamp on the back.

Docks, Stands, and Chargers:

It has a small, basic charger. But if you are willing, you can purchase an additional dock to charge overnight. Besides, it enables you to display the time also. So always go for the best stands and chargers. But now, it doesn't come with any power adapter. Therefore, if you want a power brick, you must buy one. In this case, you can use the 5W USB Power Adapter.

Should You Buy The Apple Watch Series 7?

The series 7 is available on sale on 15 October 2021. We recommend purchasing it, but it depends on which product you are upgrading. If you want to switch from Series 6, you can do so only if you need excellent screen quality. Otherwise, you should stick to the product. The fast charging function is one of the advantages of the model also, and it is lucrative in everyday life.

But it doesn't offer any additional health features besides improved fall detection compared to the Series 6. Therefore, when health is a major concern, you should go with series 6. Regarding materials, the SE and Series 3 cannot offer many choices. While you can have many for this version, it enables you to select many materials and colors for the clock.

Should You Buy Apple Watch Series 6?

You should know that the company is not selling this model anymore. Therefore, you may expect the value of the version to drop in other resellers. This version comes with an always-on display like Series 7.

Users have to wake it up with a tap or raise their wrists. What unique about series six is that it can measure blood oxygen and take an ECG.

Should You Buy The Apple Watch SE?

The SE and series 6 are available in 44mm or 40mm case sizes. Besides, both come in a slim size than the Series 3. In addition, Series 7, 6, and SE are compatible with Family Setup. This function is convenient if you have kids. Moreover, these come with an always-on altimeter.

Series 6 and 7 have an Always-On display, but the SE hasn't. This display allows you to see the time always, not only while raising the wrist. Besides, these help to measure blood oxygen and take an ECG, which are lifesaving features. In addition, the SE version informs users of an irregular heart rhythm and provides notifications of a high or low heart rate. If the lifesaving features are not essential to you, then you can go with this version.

Should You Buy Apple Watch Series 3?

Although the company is still selling the third-gen model, it doesn't indicate that you should buy it. Several features are available which are not working correctly with this version. In addition, it is less future-proofed. Moreover, it will prevent the watchOS software updates quickly compared to the other models.

It is available at an affordable price, but we recommend you invest a bit more money to choose the SE. However, selecting the SE can offer you the benefits of three years' worth of upgrades. It is a similar overall size to the SE, but the display is smaller for the larger bezels.

Although it has an altimeter, it lacks fall detection, a compass, and the always-on screen feature. In addition, the speaker and mic are not very advanced. Remember that it is not compatible with the Family Setup feature. Therefore, it is not a good selection for your offspring. Moreover, this version doesn't feature a cellular option. Consequently, you can not use it to make calls or get data when you haven't got your iPhone handy. However, it has a W2 wireless chip instead of the W3 in the SE and 6.

The Bottom Line:

Our Apple Watch buying guide says that the Series 7 can deliver an unrivaled experience to iPhone users and offer seamless integration between watchOS and iOS. If you want to get these benefits, you must be an iPhone user.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Q. Which series should you buy?

You should purchase Series 7. It is not a big upgrade over the series 6 in terms of features.

  • Q. Can you answer calls on it without a phone?

With the help of a Wi-Fi or cellular connection, you can answer calls through your iPhone isn't with you. In addition, you can use Siri to get directions, send iMessages, etc.

  • Q. Is the SE version worth it?

It is a good value for people who will not need the ECG and blood oxygen monitoring features.
