Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo thinks the iPhone 14 will launch early to minimize the impact of “recession risk on demand.”
From his tweet: The iPhone 14 announcement/shipping date may be earlier than iPhone 13/12, which could be one of the reasons why Apple offered a positive outlook for 3Q22 from the last earnings call. The global recession risk is still growing and unpredictable, so announcing/shipping the iPhone as soon as possible may minimize the impact of recession risk on demand.
The rumor is that Apple will announce the iPhone 14 line-up, as well as the Apple Watch Series 8, on Wednesday, Sept. 7. Among the rumors about the smartphone update:
° Apple will use different grades of OLED panels (made by Samsung Display) between the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro.
° The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will both pack 6GB of RAM and a newer and faster type of memory.
° Some models may cost US$100 more than their iPhone 13 counterparts.

° At least some of the models will be eSIM-only.
° The iPhone 14 Pro will contain 8GB of RAM.
° Some will sport 120GHz displays.
° The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models will have a hole + pill design.
