4/6 According to Prosser's FrontPageTech video, the iPhone 14 will look like an iPhone 12 crossed with an iPhone 4 in that it'll stick with flat edges. However, notably, those edges could include a mute button and a group of rounded buttons for volume central, harking back to the iPhone 4. (Front Page Tech)

5/6 The iPhone 14 series is still expected to have glass on the back, like the couple of previous generations of iPhones dating back to the iPhone 8. However, this new notch design is sure to excite consumers. It will be the first time since the launch of iPhone X back in 2018, that Apple has carried out a major revamp of their iPhones, instead of sticking to their tried and tested design. (FrontPageTech)

iPhone 14 is just a week away from launch and every small detail about it has already been leaked. From design, specs to price, various tipsters and leaksters have already revealed everything about Apple's next flagship smartphone series. Now, in a recent report, it has been revealed that the iPhone 14 will arrive in stores starting September 16. He has also revealed that the reported price hike of the iPhone 14 may not be entirely true.

Popular Apple tipster @yeux1122 recently posted on Twitter that the price of the iPhone 14 might go in a "completely different direction than expected.” Bloomberg's Mark Gurman and Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had previously confirmed the leaked price of the iPhone 14. According to them, the iPhone 14 Pro is expected to be priced at $1,099, a $100 increase on the price of the iPhone 13 Pro. Similarly, the iPhone 14 Pro Max is expected to be priced at $1,199.

 iPhone 14's reported price hike false?

 However, yeux1122's could also be about only the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Max/Plus. Previous reports have stated that the standard models in the iPhone 14 series are not in line for a price hike. Therefore, the standard iPhone 14 could be priced at $799, similar to the iPhone 13, with the iPhone 14 Max/Plus being priced $100 more at $899.

Not sure which
mobile to buy?

Other reports have suggested that the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Plus/Max will be available to the customers immediately after its launch. However, the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max could be available in stores starting September 16. This is due to the global semiconductor shortage the world is facing while still reeling from the production stoppages that occurred during the pandemic. The semiconductor shortage is also behind the reported $100 price increase on the Pro variants of the upcoming iPhone 14.

However, all this information is based on unconfirmed reports and should be taken with a pinch of salt. You might have to wait for an official confirmation from Apple that is expected to happen at Apple's “Far Out” event on September 7.
