Warn your friends and family – do NOT make big iPhone mistake today | The Sun

ANYONE planning on buying an iPhone this week should take a rain check for at least a couple of weeks.

Apple is on the verge of unveiling its latest smartphone, the iPhone 14, and purchasing a new one before then could cost you dearly.

While there has been a raft of rumours and leaks emerging about the top-secret gadget, which is expected to hit shelves next month, one thing that’s almost certain is a shift in price.

For one, the upcoming iPhone will likely retail for the same price as the iPhone 13 when it was unveiled last year.

That means you’ll get a much better iPhone for a very similar price as the previous model if you can just hang on a little longer.

Even if you’re not so fussed about having the latest and greatest device, it’s expected that the iPhone 13 will come down in price, too. Why? Because the same has happened year after year.

When is the iPhone 14 out?

It did so with the iPhone 12 last year, for example. The 64GB iPhone 12 saw its price tag slashed by £100 right after the iPhone 13 was announced. The iPhone 11, meanwhile, dropped to just £500.

So, if you can wait a few weeks before buying a new iPhone, you might just save yourself a pretty packet.

Apple iPhone 14 release date

If you're desperate to get your hands on a new iPhone but want to take advantage of the price cuts, how long do you have to wait?

Well, we don’t know for certain yet when Apple will officially launch its latest smartphone.

But since the company is a creature of habit, sticking to an obvious pattern for iPhone releases each year, we’re predicting it to be in the next two weeks.

Apple has announced a big product launch event titled "Far Out" that will take place on September 7.

Typically, the company unveils new iPhones at its annual September event. Apple has neither confirmed on denied that it will do so at this year's iteration.

Following the "Far Out" event, Apple will likely open pre-orders for the iPhone 14 the following Friday, on September 9.

The gadget will then probably go on general sale a week later, on September 16.

iPhone 14: what to expect

So what can we expect from the iPhone 14 when it does finally launch?

Experts think Apple is plotting a big move for the iPhone 14, with some pretty significant improvements over last year’s device, especially since Apple only made small changes when moving from iPhone 12 to iPhone 13.

For one, the internet rumour mill suggests the iPhone 14 Pro models will be getting a major facelift.

All rumours point to the removal of the "notch" – the bit of the bezel that juts out into the top of the screen, which was introduced in 2017 with the iPhone X.

Another feature we’re expecting in the iPhone 14 is a much faster experience overall with the arrival of a new chip.

We're expecting the speedy A16 to debut in September, packing even more power than the iPhone 13's A15.

However, there's talk of a slight change this year, with rumours suggesting that the regular iPhone 14 models will stick with last year's A15 Bionic chip. According to insiders, only the iPhone 14 Pro models will get the upgrade to the A16 processor. 

Still, we won't know for certain until Apple chief Tim Cook takes the stage in September to announce the new models. Until then, we’d recommend taking all leaks and rumours with a pinch of salt.
