1/6 Leave alone the iPhone mini, the new iPhone 14 Plus/Max is expected to have a larger display than even the standard iPhone 14. It is rumoured to have the same 6.7-inch screen size as the iPhone 14 Pro Max, albeit without the features that make it “Pro”. Apple is restarting the trend of assigning “Plus” tag with its larger devices, last seen in the iPhone 8 Plus. (Representational image) (Amritanshu Mukherjee / HT Tech)

6/6 iPhone 14 Plus/Max along with all the other iPhones and the Apple Watch 8, is expected to be launched at Apple’s “Far Out” event scheduled for September 7 at the Steve Jobs Theater. However, all the information released by leaks and rumours should be taken with a pinch of salt as these are still unconfirmed reports. So, we can only wait until Apple officially confirms the details, which could be at launch of the iPhone 14 series itself. (REUTERS)

Amid the speculation of the list of products that Apple can launch at the Far Out event on September 7, it is being said that the iPhone 14 Pro models will steal the show. With the event being only 2 days away, Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 14 series, smartwatches and new AirPods. It can be known that the iPhone 14 series will comprise four variations that are two Pro models and two standard versions. Apple is going to ditch the mini version (iPhone 14 mini) which if introduced could have succeeded the iPhone 13 mini. However, it is being said that this time the focus of the company is on the large devices.

Apple is planning a 6.1-inch iPhone 14, 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus, 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max. According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, "the regular iPhone 14 models will get some camera hardware changes, but the most significant upgrades will be reserved for the Pro line—and that could be a theme of the event. The company's upscale products should generate the most fireworks at Wednesday's launch, which will include a new high-end Apple Watch and upgraded AirPods Pro earbuds. "

Earlier leaks and rumors have also said that unlike the standard model, the iPhone 14 Pro is likely to get a faster A16 chip, an always-on display and a 48-megapixel rear wide-angle camera system. The iPhone 14 Pro is also likely to get some design changes—the most significant being a revamped notch area for the camera and Face ID sensors.

"The new notch will be made up of hardware cutouts for the front-facing camera (with autofocus for the first time) and improved facial-recognition sensors. When the device is in use, the notch will look like a single, capsule-shaped hole," Mark Gurman said.

"Beyond the notch, I'm told to expect the iPhone 14 Pro models to appear slightly larger overall and include slimmer bezels. They will have bigger batteries too. There's also a significantly larger camera area on the back of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max for the new 48-megapixel wide-angle system and improved telephoto and ultrawide-angle sensors," he added.

After the launch event on September 7, the new iPhones 14 series will likely go on sale on September 16.
