We don’t know when the next generation of the iPhone will be announced, but we can make some educated guesses based on Apple’s history and current rumors.
With iPhones being released every other year, it’s not surprising that the new phone is already inspiring dozens of rumors about its design and features. But what if you want to know more before Apple releases its next flagship? At this point in the development cycle, most leaks should not probably be taken seriously but there are still enough educated guesses based on past performance for us all to get guessing!
Apple has a history of announcing new iPhones on either the first or second Tuesday after Labor Day. Last year’s iPhone 13 series were unveiled during a Live Event held by Apple CEO Tim Cook, who also revealed several details about their release date – September 14th last minute this time around! The phones went up for pre-ordering immediately following suit with an expected launch shortly afterward into early October before expanding availability weeks later due to high demand (always). This means we may see something similar happen again this year given there is only one event planned instead of too many separate ones so far.
The Labor Day theory has been gaining momentum as of late. In 2018, CNET took a deep dive into the Apple event timeline and emerged with compelling evidence that supports this particular idea for why we’ll see an iPhone 14 at some point before September 2021–and it seems like our luck might just hold out again because there were reports about supply chain issues regarding the said device which should only “limited” impact release dates in 2020 or later according to analyst Ming Chi Kuo on Twitter (July post).
