iPhone 14 pre-order release date

We’re all familiar with the drill now. Apple usually launches its new products on a Tuesday or Wednesday in September. The pre-orders are available on the following Friday after the announcement.

Apple’s flagship phone event is expected to be happen on September 7, which falls on a Wednesday. So people who want to pre-order the iPhone 14 should mark their calendars for September 9.

The second Friday of September will be the day when you can secure your brand new Apple smartphone. Apple has been quite consistent with its store updates. Have a look at when the last iPhone in the series, iPhone 13’s pre-orders dropped:

  • PST – 5 a.m.

  • CDT – 7 a.m.
  • EDT – 8 a.m.
  • BST – 1 p.m.

Fans in the UK and Europe will have to make time in the early afternoon to snag their phone. However, people in the US can get their hands on the iPhone 14 early morning.

The times listed are for iPhone 14 pre-orders to go live on Apple’s official website internationally. For in-store pickup, you will have to check your local stores’ opening time. close to the launch date.

Price of pre-orders

The prices are a bit different as compared to the iPhone 13. The last iPhone was priced at $799, with iPhone 13 Pro at $999 and iPhone 13 Pro Max at $1,099.

Unfortunately, Apple will not be putting out a mini version due to poor sales. Usually, the iPhone models are set on a storage increase on its base level. There could be a $100 price increase with the Pro models being costly.

The rumor floating around before the release is that the standard iPhone 14 will not bring out the A16 processor. This could be the segregation that Apple uses to variate the pricing.

These could be expected prices of the upcoming models:

  • iPhone 14 – $799 / £779
  • iPhone 14 Pro – $1,099 / £1,049
  • iPhone 14 Pro Max – $1,199 / £1,149

The predictions are based on the last models’ prices. There could be alterations in the price due to inflation or minor price hikes. Although, a lot of people are hoping they remain the same. So, the base iPhone 14 Pro model would cost under a thousand dollars.

Where to buy your iPhone 14 from?

The first place you can purchase it from is obviously Apple. But additionally, people are expecting it would be available at every network store. These include Verizon and AT&T in the US and Vodafone and EE in the UK.

So, the predictions are that fans will be able to buy their shiny new iPhone 14 from most network stores.

Are iPhone 14 pre-orders expected to sell out?

Apple has a good history of making sure that early buyers can snag their devices at the launch. However, a lot of people experienced issues with sellouts last year.

Certain models and variants of the iPhone 13 faced delivery backlogs due to higher demand. This was mostly the case with the higher storage capacity versions of the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max.

Although, Apple never lists its devices as ‘sold out’, instead it extends the expected delivery date of devices. Verizon has the same process as well.

Last year, Apple pushed delivery dates to early October mostly for iPhone 13 Pro models. However, it could be due to the chip crisis at that time. Additionally, there were reports of fewer iPhones being produced.

Some people had to wait up to three weeks to get their phones. The demand also increased due to the ongoing Black Friday deals.

Apart from the stock shortage and demand issues, the pre-order window is quite limited with Apple launches. They usually last over a week or so. This year would also be the same as per predictions.

So, you will need to pre-order your phone immediately after the announcement to get it before everyone else. We are hoping the official release date will be in late September. Till then, save a good chunk of your money to buy the newest and most advanced Apple smartphone.
