The leaked new iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro have revealed two very different phones. While the standard iPhone 14 model will get the same design, chipset and rear camera as the iPhone 13, the iPhone 14 Pro model will advance with upgrades in all three departments and a corresponding price increase.
The Apple iPhone 14 may have a split release date rather than a single release date reported by various internal sources close to Apple. Because of the lockout in China, many major Apple providers are expected not to meet deadlines and could eventually result in delays, sources suggested.
The difference in the launch date of the iPhone 14 has surfaced around the world as TF International Securities analysts Ming-Chi Kuo and Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) have mentioned.
“My latest channel check shows that Apple hasn’t changed its shipping plan for the iPhone 14 model since the Shanghai locks. The iPhone 14 Max is running, but it’s still under control, and suppliers may be working overtime to complete the schedule,” tweeted Ming-Chi Kuo .
However, Ross Young, one of the industry’s most accurate insiders, argues that “the delivery of the iPhone 14 Max panel is definitely lagging behind.”

Split release is not for the first time
In any case, it won’t be the first time an iPhone will use this strategy. Previously, Apple has used a similar strategy for the iPhone 12 / iPhone 12 Mini. A split sales strategy was also adopted for the initial sales of the iPhone 8/ iPhone X.
Kuo also denied a recent report from ET News that provided an issue that forced Apple to install a front -facing camera module intended for the iPhone 15 years earlier at a hefty cost.
“This report is inconsistent with my understanding,” Kuo explained. “If LG Innotek becomes the iPhone 14 front camera supplier in 2Q22 (second quarter of 2022), it is almost impossible to reach the development schedule for the 2H22 iPhone 14. I’m sure Apple has chosen LG Innotek and Cowell as the iPhone 14 front camera supplier in 4Q21 ( fourth quarter of 2021) latest.
This is in line with Kuo’s previous claim that overall iPhone 14 production is “controlled now.” He said Nikkei Asia and Haitong International Securities analyst Jeff Pu believes that the supply of the iPhone 14 Max was delayed by almost a month, a Forbes report said.
The bay between the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro
Split release or not, the leaked iPhone 14 and the new iPhone 14 Pro have announced two very different iPhones. While the standard iPhone 14 model will get the same design, chipset and rear camera as the iPhone 13, the iPhone 14 Pro model will advance with upgrades in all three departments and a corresponding increased price tag.

If reports are to be believed, the iPhone 14 Pro will have a starting price of $ 1099. On the other hand, the iPhone 14 Pro Max will cost $ 1199.
The iPhone 14 Pro model is expected to get the A16 chipset. However, the iPhone 14 model (non-Pro version) is expected to get the A15 chipset. The A15 chipset is currently offered on iPhone 13 models. The A16 chipset is expected to provide faster processing than the A15.
In addition, the iPhone 14 series will include four devices and not include a mini version. This means all devices will have a display of more than 6 inches. The iPhone 14 series will include the iPhone 14 (6.1 inches), iPhone 14 Pro (6.1 inches), iPhone 14 Max (6.7 inches) and iPhone 14 Pro Max (6.7 inches).

In India, a website that sells mobile offers a price of Rs 99,990 for the iPhone 14 and predicts September 8 as the release date. But he was cautious and called it an ‘unofficial date’. According to 91mobiles.com, the Apple iPhone 14 has three cameras – a 48 MP and 13 MP main camera and a 13 MP front camera – and has the first 48 MP camera sensor that can record 8k video.

The iPhone 14 is configured with a Hexa-Core processor (Dual-core, 3.1GHz, Firestorm + Quad-core, 1.8GHz, Icestorm) powered by Apple’s M14 motion co-processor. The device also features a 5nm Apple A14 Bionic chipset combined with 6GB of RAM and an Apple GPU as well as an irreplaceable 3815mAh Li-ion battery.
It has excellent features like dust and water resistance. However, “the internal storage is only 64GB (non-expandable) and the battery life is pretty average,” he said. The phone is expected to be available in black and gold.
