Suppliers reportedly shipping iPhone 14 components to factories
With September, the month in which Apple typically unvails its new iPhone lineup fast approaching, Taiwanese site DigiTimes is claiming that suppliers are now reportedly shipping iPhone 14 components to factories for final assembly ahead of mass production for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro’s launch later this year.
According to the report (via MacRumors), “Component suppliers have kicked off recently their shipments for the next-generation iPhone series slated for launch later this year.”
Apple is widely rumored to be dropping the 5.4-inch ‘mini’ iPhone from its lineup this year, replacing the model with a large 6.7-inch non-Pro iPhone for the first time. Previous reports have suggested that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will feature graphite, gold, silver, and purple finishes, dropping the iPhone 13 Pro’s sierra blue and new alpine green options.
In April we saw alleged real-world iPhone 14 display panels leak online, showing the rumored pill-shape and circular display cutouts, which will replace the traditional notch to house the front-facing camera and Face ID system on this year’s new iPhone models.
We then saw later that same month rumored iPhone 14 CAD renders appear online which suggested the new pill-shape and circular display cutouts seen in the earlier leak out remain exclusive to the high-end ‘Pro’ and ‘Pro Max’ models, with the overall physical design expected to remain very similar to the existing iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro.
Last month YouTuber and leaker Jon Prosser shared a set of concept images showing us what the iPhone 14 Pro will probably look like, featuring pill-shape and circular display cutouts, new purple finish, and more.
