Recent leaks of iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro have revealed two very different phones. While the standard iPhone 14 models will inherit the same design, chipset and rear cameras as the iPhone 13, the iPhone 14 Pro models will advance with upgrades to all three departments and increase prices to match them.

The Apple iPhone 14 could have split release dates instead of a single release date reported by several privileged sources close to Apple. Due to the blockade in China, many of Apple’s key vendors are expected to meet deadlines and this could lead to delays, sources suggested.
The difference in the launch dates of the iPhone 14 has appeared all over the world, as mentioned by TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC).
“My latest channel checks suggest that Apple has not changed the delivery plan for the iPhone 14 models since the Shanghai blockade. The iPhone 14 Max is behind, but is currently still under control and suppliers may work hours extraordinary to catch up with the calendar, “Ming-Chi Kuo tweeted.
However, Ross Young, one of the industry’s most accurate experts, replied that “shipments of iPhone 14 Max panels have always been behind.”

The split release is not the first time
In any case, it will not be the first time that the iPhone has adopted this strategy. Earlier, Apple had adopted the same strategy for the iPhone 12 / iPhone 12 Mini. The split sales strategy was also adopted for the initial sales of iPhone 8 / iPhone X.
Kuo also disputed a recent ET News report that supply problems have forced Apple to install a front-facing camera module for the iPhone 15 a year earlier at great cost.
“This report is not entirely consistent with my understanding,” Kuo explains. “If LG Innotek became the supplier of front-facing cameras for the iPhone 14 in 2Q22 (second quarter of 2022), it would be almost impossible to keep up with the development schedule for the iPhone 14 2H22. I think Apple already had chosen LG Innotek and Cowell as iPhone 14. front camera suppliers in 4Q21 (fourth quarter of 2021) at the latest “.
This is in line with Kuo’s previous claims that global production of the iPhone 14 is “currently under control.” That said, both Nikkei Asia and Haitong International Securities analyst Jeff Pu believe that supplies of the iPhone 14 Max will be delayed by almost a month, according to a Forbes report.

IPhone 14 Pro models are expected to have an A16 chipset. However, iPhone 14 (non-Pro version) models are expected to have the A15 chipset. The A15 chipset is currently available for iPhone 13 models. The A16 chipset is expected to provide faster processing than the A15.
