Don't Buy an iPhone 13 Pro Right Now: 'iPhone 14 Pro' Models Imminent

The iPhone 13 Pro and ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ Max are expected to be replaced by the iPhone 14 Pro and ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max at an Apple event as soon as next month, meaning most customers should hold off on purchasing a new iPhone until then.

The ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ models are expected to headline with features such as thinner bezels and a "pill and hole-punch" TrueDepth camera array design in place of the notch, an always-on display, and a range of camera improvements. For the first time, the standard ‌iPhone‌ models are also expected to miss out on Apple's latest chip, with the "A16" reserved for the iPhone 14 Pro only.

The devices are shaping up to offer a significant upgrade with new features and improvements in many key areas. According to rumors so far, ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ models are expected to feature:

The ‌‌iPhone 14 Pro‌‌ and ‌‌iPhone 14 Pro‌‌ Max will allegedly come in Graphite, Gold, Silver, and Purple color options. While the ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ models could see a slight price increase this year, the new models offer significant upgrades and price rises could be justified if the devices start with more storage.

Apple is reportedly planning to unveil the ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ models at an Apple event on Wednesday, September 7 with the tagline "Far out." Pre-orders for the device will likely begin later that week, with the first devices probably arriving to customers around Friday, September 14. As such, there is now not long to wait for the new ‌iPhone‌ models. As such, there is now not long to wait for the new "Pro" ‌iPhone‌ models.

The ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ and ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ Max are likely to be discontinued upon the release of the new models, which will subsequently slash prices with third-party resellers – so it is clearly preferable to avoid purchasing either of these devices at the current time.
