iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max and AirPods Pro 2 now available for pre-order
September 9, 2022
Apple is now accepting pre-orders for the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max, and AirPods Pro 2, with orders being accepted through the online storefront and the Apple Store app. The Apple Store app is often the fastest way to get a pre-order in, as it’s usually before the website comes up.
Pre-orders are available in more than 30 countries and regions around the world, and in the United States, those who have used Apple’s “Get Ready” feature simply need to press a button to place their order.
The iPhone 14 and 14 Plus are Apple’s most affordable flagship iPhones, starting at $799 and $899 respectively, but they aren’t as feature-rich as the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, which are priced from $999 and up. $1,099.
The iPhone 14 models have undergone no design changes and use the same A15 chip that was in the iPhone 13 Pro models, but they do have updated camera technology, support for satellite connectivity for emergency and car accident detection, among other features.
With the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, Apple has made notable design changes, doing away with the notch in favor of the ‘Dynamic Island’, a pill-shaped cutout that can change shape and context using software, offer notifications, background tracking tasks and more.
Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro models are equipped with a 4-nanometer A16 chip that is an improvement over the A15, and they have new camera technology with a 48-megapixel wide-angle camera. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models feature some of the biggest differences Apple has ever introduced between the standard and the Pro lines, with the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max offering a more comprehensive feature set.
As for the AirPods Pro 2, Apple has added a new H2 chip that enables 2x better active noise cancellation and an updated transparency mode that can reduce loud, persistent noises such as sirens and construction work. Audio has been improved, there are new touch controls and the battery lasts longer. The AirPods Pro 2 costs $249.
It’s not yet known if we can expect shortages on the new iPhone models and the AirPods Pro 2, but it’s a good idea to pre-order right away just in case. New colors, such as deep purple, could be particularly popular and sell out quickly.
US carriers such as Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile are also accepting pre-orders for the new devices, as are other carriers worldwide. Retailers such as Best Buy, Target, and Walmart also have pre-orders available.
Customers who pre-order any of the new iPhone models can expect deliveries on Friday, September 16 for the iPhone 14, 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max. The iPhone 14 Plus will be available on October 7, and the AirPods Pro 2 will arrive at customers on September 23.
