iPhone 14 Pro Rumors And Leaks Everything You Want To Know
Here’s everything we think we know about the iPhone 14 Pro so far
Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro is set to be the phone that could shake up the iPhone range by potentially bringing in a notably different design from the iPhone 13 Pro. So far the rumors have hinted at everything from the death of the notch to the return of Touch ID.
This is probably well overdue; as good as the iPhone 13 Pro is, it’s arguably not a definitive upgrade over its predecessor. And overall, the iPhone hasn’t taken a huge leap forward since the iPhone 11 Pro.
In the face of stiff competition from the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and the Google Pixel 6 Pro, it looks like Apple will need to bring its A-game to the iPhone 14 Pro. Thankfully, going by the leaks and rumors so far, Apple’s next Pro model might be doing just that. And the iPhone 14 Pro could have some big differences from the other iPhone 14 models.

The prospect of a USB-C iPhone 14 looks even less likely, with Ming-Chi Kuo predicting it wont’ happen until 2023 and the iPhone 15. Bloomberg now says the same.
While it may only be a small difference, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max could have slightly larger displays than their iPhone 13 counterparts.
Detailed renders of the iPhone 14 Pro show off all the changes to expect, from the new notch design, to the larger cameras and everything in between.
Naturally, Apple is extremely tight-lipped about any information concerning its next iPhones, especially when it comes to release dates and price. But going by previous launches, we’d say it’s a safe bet to expect the iPhone 14 range to debut in September.
Based on Apple’s previous patterns, the iPhone 14 could be announced Tuesday, September 13 and the release could follow 10 days later on September 22, but this is just speculation. See our iPhone 14 release date prediction page for more info.
Given the disruption the coronavirus pandemic has caused on supply chains, Apple appears to be taking action to mitigate the risk of the iPhone 14 range hitting long wait times due to manufacturing disruption among its major suppliers.
The somewhat reliable leaker LeaksApplePro has claimed three of the four iPhone 14 models are tipped for a price hike, but it’s definitely just a rumor.
If true, the iPhone 14 Pro would start at $1,099, which is a $100 hike over the $999 iPhone 13 Pro. And the iPhone 14 Pro Max may see a similar increase, with it hitting $1,199. This relatively significant leap in launch price would certainly sting the wallet of anyone hoping to score a high-end next-gen iPhone 14.
Another leaker, Shadow_Leak, has posted on Twitter that he also expects the regular iPhone 14 Pro to cost $1,099.

Tipster Jon Prosser has showcased a suite of renders supposedly based on leaked information, which reveal possible big changes for the iPhone 14 Pro.
Prosser’s renders show a trio of cameras flush with the iPhone 14 Pro’s back. But if that sounds nice, you might be disappointed by some rival schematics that show the iPhone 14 Pro models looking a lot like their iPhone 13 counterparts. The raised camera array is back, and even bigger on the iPhone 14 Pro; the new phones are also rumored to be 0.2mm thicker than the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max
Other reports also have the camera module tipped to get bigger. The reason for this according to reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is that a larger module is needed to house a 48MP camera. As a result, another leak claims the corners of the iPhone 14 Pro (but not the Pro Max) will be getting rounder to better match the curved corners of the new module.
Other notable design changes from various iPhone 14 Pro rumors are the removal of the now infamous display notch. Display analyst Ross Young expects Apple to offer a pill-shaped cutout for Face ID along with a punch hole, so basically two cutouts. This design is now seemingly locked in according to rumors from EverythingApplePro.
Below is an alleged schematic from a leaker on Weibo showing what the iPhone 14 Pro design could look like. We’re not sure this would be an improvement over the notch, though.
The iPhone 14 Pro could be the phone many of us have been waiting for, with the Pro models tipped to offer a real evolution of the iPhones we’ve seen over the past few years. Sure, it’s not going to be unrecognizable from the iPhone 13 and iPhone 12, but we suspect this upcoming generation of iPhone will introduce a design language and capabilities that will set the stage for other iPhones to follow. And, now that the iPhone SE (2022) is out, here’s what the iPhone SE tells us about the iPhone 14.
No notch, Touch ID, a bigger megapixel count for the main camera, as well as a USB-C port, could really shake up the iPhone as we know it. And that would in turn have the effect of setting the standard for other smartphones to follow if they wish to win a spot on our best phones list.
