This is the one-stop shop for all iPhone 14 Pro rumors and leaks. With a probable design that differs noticeably from the iPhone 13 Pro, Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro is expected to be the device that shakes up the iPhone lineup. The iPhone 14 has about a month left until its customary September release, and up to this point, speculations have suggested anything from the notch’s demise to an always-on display.
It appears that Apple will need to be at the top of its game with the iPhone 14 Pro in the face of fierce competition from devices like the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and the Google Pixel 7. With a reported new 48MP primary camera and a potent new A16 Bionic CPU that the standard iPhone 14 may use, Apple looks to be accomplishing exactly that.
Keeping up with the latest iPhone 14 Pro rumours (updated August 7)
The iPhone 14 may compete with the iPhone 14 Pro for the following six reasons.
- The new notch-free iPhone 14 Pro has been shown by leaker Ice Universe in what looks to be a screen cover for the device.
- The colours of the iPhone 14 Pro and the always-on display have been revealed by a number of leaks for the iPhone 14, and 30W charging power may also be coming.
- Findings in iOS 16 and the iPhone simulator in the most recent Xcode beta seem to indicate that the iPhone 14 Pro will make use of a sophisticated always-on display, which is allegedly better than how other phones manage this function.

Reported release date for Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro
We predict the iPhone 14 range will be released on September 13 based on all the current speculations.
Following that, we may anticipate that pre-orders for the iPhone 14 range will open on the Friday following the Apple event, September 16, with the devices likely going on sale a week later, on Friday, September 23. Ten days would have passed since the alleged Apple event.
There have been rumours that supply chain problems might have an impact on the production of Apple’s iPhone 14 line. As an illustration, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated that he recently heard that “certain iPhone 14 panel and memory manufacturers have had supply challenges,” but he added that this won’t have much of an effect on the total supply of iPhone 14 models since “other suppliers can fill the supply gap.”
In light of this, there should be a steady supply of the ordinary iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models when the phones are released. There could be modest differences in wait times across popular models, but we don’t anticipate any significant ones. During the release of its third-quarter earnings, Apple did not publish any cautionary statements, which would indicate a
Reported price for Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro
somewhat trustworthy leaker Leaks Three of the four iPhone 14 versions, according to ApplePro, are expected to see price increases, but the standard model is reportedly staying at $799 like the iPhone 13. A later source asserts that an increase in the price of the iPhone 14 Pro is also planned.
According to these speculations, the iPhone 14 Pro would cost $1,099 at launch, $100 more than the iPhone 13 Pro’s starting price of $999. And the price of the iPhone 14 Pro Max may rise by a comparable $100, to $1,199. Anyone trying to obtain a high-end next-generation iPhone 14 would undoubtedly feel the pinch from this somewhat large jump in the launch pricing.
When a new iPhone is released, it frequently signals the end of the line for existing iPhones.
Design of the iPhone 14 Pro
The iPhone 14 Pro may undergo significant alterations, according to a set of renderings presented by tipster Jon Prosser that are purportedly based on leaked information.
Three cameras are seen flush with the rear of the iPhone 14 Pro in Prosser’s renderings. However, if that sounds appealing, you could be let down by other competing schematics, which depict the iPhone 14 Pro versions as resembling their iPhone 13 predecessors. The iPhone 14 Pro reportedly features a larger version of the elevated camera array and is 0.2mm thicker than the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
According to other sources, the back camera module will also likely grow. This is due to the necessity for a bigger module to accommodate a 48MP camera, claims reputable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Another source suggests that the iPhone 14 Pro’s corners will be rounded to better match the curved corners of the new module, but not the Pro Max’s. The elimination of the now-famous display notch is reportedly the biggest speculated design change for the iPhone 14 Pro. Display researcher Ross Young predicts Apple would provide a punch hole and a pill-shaped cutout for Face ID, making two holes altogether. According to speculations from EverythingApplePro, this design is now reportedly fixed.
These speculations gained more credibility when what looks to be a supply chain breach revealed the display panels for each of the four iPhone 14 versions. The iPhone 14 mock-ups revealed by Macotakara and posted by Alibaba give us the greatest idea of how all the design changes combine. Along with the two perforations on the front display, the iPhone 14 models also include a larger camera module. According to Macotakara, this larger module prevents iPhone 13 Pro covers from fitting the iPhone 14 Pro.
