While Apple is yet to make a formal announcement regarding the launch of the highly-anticipated iPhone 14 series, tipster iHacktu iLeaks suggests that the phones will be unveiled on September 13, 2022. The Cupertino-based company is expected to reveal the launch date of the iPhone 14 series next month, however, this leak provides insight into the possible launch date beforehand.
I’m thinking of stopping tweeting after the presentation of the iPhone 14 on September 13 2022 3/3

iPhone 14 Series Launch Date: What We Know
According to a report by iHacktu iLeaks, the iPhone 14 series of smartphones will launch on September 13 this year. The report from the tipster also suggests that pre-orders for the iPhone 14 series will begin on September 16, just three days after the launch. The tipster also divulged that the device will go on sale starting September 23.
Nevertheless, do take these dates with a grain of salt since nothing has been confirmed from Apple’s end so far. Apple usually launches new iPhones in September every year with the devices starting to ship later in the month, which matches the tipster’s claims.
According to several leaks and reports, Apple will reportedly launch the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus/Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max this year. The Mini has been dropped from what reports suggests. The iPhone Pro models this year will reportedly ship with a notch-less design with an all new pill-shaped cutout for the selfie camera and FaceID sensor. The non-Pro models will continue shipping with the notch, as per reports.
The tech giant may also launch the Apple Watch Series 8 and the new AirPods Pro during the event in September. Reports also suggest that the company may launch a new rugged extreme sports edition Apple Watch dubbed the Apple Watch Series 8 Pro. We may also see a new SE debut during this event in September.
iPhone 14 Series Cases Leaked
Tipster DuanRui took to Twitter to post an image of the cases for the iPhone 14 2022 lineup. He first uploaded the image to Weibo, following which we posted it on Twitter as well. The cases show the sizes of all four devices in the lineup. The iPhone 14 and 14 Pro will feature similarly-sized displays – possibly 6.1-inches – while the larger iPhone 14 Plus/Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max models will reportedly come with 6.7-inch displays.

According to the side-by-side image comparison posted by the tipster on Weibo, the iPhone 14 Pro Max will have a larger camera module as compared to the 13 Pro Max. The Pro models are rumoured to get a new 48-megapixel sensor which may be causing the size bump.
