APPLE’S next iPhone could arrive on store shelves sooner than expected.
The next-gen flagship Apple mobile may be just a few weeks away, according to insiders.
It’s impossible to say exactly when the iPhone 14 will come out.
But generally Apple sticks to the same sort of rough schedule.
We’d previously predicted that the iPhone 14 release date would fall on September 13 or 14.
But a new report from journalist and renowned gadget leaker Max Weinbach says that the handset could be out even sooner.
In a tweet, Max wrote: “For what it’s worth I heard September 6 event and iPhones on sale on the 16th.
“Not 100% sure, but around there seems right.”
He was replying to fellow journalist and Apple tipster Mark Gurman, who said that the next iPad update was being delayed to focus on the iPhone 14.
The big launch event always takes place in September, and generally falls early on in the month – on a Tuesday or Wednesday, typically.
Based on Apple’s history, we expected the event to take place on Tuesday, September 13 or the following day.
That would be followed by iPhone 14 pre-orders on Friday, September 16.
And then we’d expect an actual iPhone 14 release date of Friday, September 23.
But if Max is right then all of those dates would shift forward to earlier in September.
We’ll find out about the Apple event the week before it’s due to take place.
That means we could hear more about an Apple event at the very end of August.
And remember: Apple may also hold an additional event in October or November for other gadgets.
Of course, we can’t guarantee any of these dates – but they’re the most likely.
We won’t find out exactly what the iPhone 14 will look like until much closer to launch.
And even then, we could still be a little in the dark – some iPhone news is always a surprise on the night.
But we’re already hearing trickles of information about the mystery mobile.
Apple is said to be finally removing the “notch” at the top of the iPhone – offering a full-screen front for the first time.
It’s part of a rumoured makeover of the iPhone that will make it look drastically different from 2021’s model.
The design reportedly includes a pill-shaped hole on the front of the device for a selfie camera.
