The long-awaited iPhone 14 event could happen sooner than most people had anticipated!
According to Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, one of the most reliable Apple leakers online, this year’s iPhone event will be held on September 7.
Earlier rumors put it around September 13, since Apple usually does its iPhone events on the second Tuesday of September. But it seems like it won’t be the case this time round.
What Will The iPhone 14 Event Include?
The iPhone 14 will be announced alongside several other products, including the Apple Series 8 and the SE. There are also credible rumors that Apple could add a high-end version of the Series 8 to the lineup, which will most likely be called the Apple Watch Pro.
Moving on from wearables, the budget iPad could also be announced at this event, although some rumors suggest Apple might announce it at an October event alongside other iPad models and Macs.
What We’re Expecting From The iPhone 14?
Of course, the new iPhone 14 is what everyone will be looking forward to at this event. Some of the expected design changes that will be coming to this year’s iPhone include the removal of the notch that houses the Face ID hardware and the selfie camera:
The notch will be replaced with an ani-shaped cutout with the pill-shaped hole housing the Face ID hardware and a hole punch for the selfie camera.
The iPhone 14 Pro will also get an upgraded 48MP primary camera, which is expected to record 8K videos. However, it is only the pro models that will be getting this upgraded camera. The regular iPhone 14 will maintain the 12MP duo-cameras just like the current iPhone 13 models.
Rumors also suggest Apple might add a bigger battery to the Pro models. This will significantly boost the already incredible battery life on the iPhone 13 lineup.

This event is expected to be held in a hybrid fashion, just like the recently concluded WWDC event. The actual product announcements will be pre-recorded, but Apple might invite some media personalities to have hands-on experience with the products just after the announcements.
