What to expect from iPhone 14 Plus/Max after Apple killed off iPhone 14 mini
Apple Event
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)

2/6 According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Plus/Max will be powered by Apple’s A15 Bionic processor. Only the Pro models will receive the new A16 Bionic chipset. Although, the A15 chip in the iPhone 14 is expected to be an improved version of the A15 Bionic currently powering the iPhone 13 series. (Representational image) (Amritanshu / HT Tech)

In fact, all the variants of the iPhone 14 series are expected to have the same amount of RAM, unlike last year where the standard iPhone 13 models had 4GB of RAM and the iPhone 13 Pro variants had 6GB of RAM.

4/6 Apple expert and top analyst Jeff Pu has revealed that the iPhone 14 Plus/Max as well as the other 3 models will feature Apple’s ProMotion displays with a high refresh rate of 120Hz. At this moment, only the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max offer the ProMotion displays. (Representational image) (HT Tech)

5/6 According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman and Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 14 Plus/Max will be priced at $899, a $100 price increase from the standard iPhone 14. The standard iPhone 14 models are not expected to receive the $100 price hike, as reported by various reports. Only the Pro variants will be priced $100 higher than their iPhone 13 Pro counterparts.

Apple Event
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)

The iPhone 14 launch is slated for later today and as is the case every year, the Apple Store is down. It will be back up later with the iPhone 14 descriptions and prices. The company does this intentionally. That also means the Apple Far Out Event is all set to begin. The scheduled time is 10:30 PM IST. Apart from the launch of the iPhone 14 series, there are a couple of other gadgets expected including the new Apple Watch Series 8, Apple AirPods Pro 2 and more.

"Be right back. We're making updates to the Apple Store. Check back soon,” the Apple Store page reads right now. This accompanies the Apple Event Watch link which redirects you to Apple's website. This temporary blackout of the Apple Store is a familiar routine to build up the excitement every single year prior to Apple Event. We have seen the same ritual during the launch of the iPhone SE 3 back in March and WWDC 2022. But don't worry, the Apple Store will be back soon after the event and likely to add the new upcoming launches. Here's what you might see on the Apple Store.
