Everyone knows the drill by now. Apple drops an announcement occasion on a Tuesday or Wednesday in September with pre-orders opening on the next Friday.

So, taking the leaked iPhone 14 announcement date of Wednesday, September 7, meaning it’s best to mark your calendar for Friday, September 9 to be the day you’ll be able to safe your shiny new Apple smartphone.

As for the time, as soon as once more, Apple has been fairly per when the shop will get up to date. For context, right here’s when the iPhone 13 pre-orders dropped:

  • PST – 5 a.m.
  • MDT – 6 a.m.
  • CDT – 7 a.m.
  • EDT – 8 a.m.

So, anybody within the UK might want to make a while throughout their lunch break to snag one, whereas anybody within the US ought to set an early morning alarm.

iPhone 14 pre-orders: the place to purchase

To paraphrase Paul Heyman, this isn’t a prediction, it’s a spoiler. You’ll have the ability to decide up the iPhone 14 from fairly much in every single place you’d anticipate.

The primary apparent place is from Apple instantly. Past that, it is going to be fairly much each community you’ll be able to probably think about, akin to AT&T and Verizon within the US, and EE and Vodafone within the UK.

That is the place issues begin to get attention-grabbing. We have been anticipating pricing to stay precisely the identical because the iPhone 13 fashions, which regarded like this at launch.

  • iPhone 13 – $799 / £779
  • iPhone 13 Professional – $999 / £949
  • iPhone 13 Professional Max – $1,099 / £1,049

Very first thing you’ll discover is the absence of the iPhone mini, as, given the poor gross sales numbers, Apple seems set to kill off the smaller iPhone mannequin for the 14th iteration. However the second factor pertains to one thing we discovered a short time in the past. 

You see, the iPhone 14 Professional seems set to get a storage improve on the bottom mannequin, which is nice information on paper — particularly to these like me who replenish that storage with lengthy 4K clips for the Laptop computer Magazine YouTube channel.

However with it appears to be a $100 value improve, which implies the Professional fashions might take an even bigger hit in your pockets. With that in thoughts and the rumor that the usual iPhone 14 will miss out on the A16 processor, it seems doubtless that this would be the instrument Apple makes use of to additional separate the pricing. Right here is our prediction:

  • iPhone 14 – $799 / £779
  • iPhone 14 Professional – $1,099 / £1,049
  • iPhone 14 Professional Max – $1,199 / £1,149

I’d like to be confirmed improper and see Apple hold the identical pricing, so you may nonetheless get a base iPhone 14 Professional for beneath a thousand {dollars}. However we have now to comply with the breadcrumbs of leaks from sources which have (nearly) at all times bought the massive calls proper and it’s not trying doubtless.
