iPhone 14 Pro Delivery Estimates Begin Slipping Into October

Shortly after Apple started accepting pre-orders for all four iPhone 14 models, delivery estimates are beginning to slip into October on its online store in the U.S. and select other countries. Exact availability varies by configuration ordered.

iPhone 14 Pro models in hand
Many customers who managed to work around issues with Apple's online store and place an order quickly are set for launch day delivery. iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max models will begin arriving to customers and launch in stores on Friday, September 16, while the iPhone 14 Plus launches on Friday, October 7.

For customers who have yet to order, however, many iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models are now estimated for delivery in the first half of October from Apple. Availability of the standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models has held up better.

It's a similar situation in Canada, where nearly every iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max configuration is estimated for October delivery as of writing.

Customers who really want one of the new iPhone 14 models on launch day might still have luck with arranging in-store pickup at their local Apple Store during the checkout process on Apple's website, but availability varies. It is also common for some Apple Stores to have limited stock of the new iPhones for walk-in customers on launch day.

While the standard iPhone 14 models have very few changes this year, including an A15 Bionic chip with an extra GPU core and new car crash detection and satellite texting features for emergencies, the Pro models feature an always-on display with an all-new pill-shaped Dynamic Island cutout, a 48-megapixel rear camera lens, and more.

Pricing continues to start at $799 for the iPhone 14 and at $999 for the iPhone 14 Pro.

The "get ready" process within the Apple Store app is so nice. I had all my stuff entered last night - my configuration, a gift card I wanted to use, etc - and this morning I opened it at 8am EST, clicked the Apple Pay button, and it was literally done before 8:01.

The people saying this was a disaster... I feel for you, but try that in the future.

Good luck getting an Apple product these years. Glad I sold my stock.


Your logic makes zero sense. High demand = Sell your stock?

*Sees that so many people are ordering a product that the site is struggling to keep up* ...Glad I sold my stock! lol

I don't get why some people are logging into this site, reading articles, and typing out a comment to let others know how disinterested they are. Not hating on you, you are just a mystery to me.

Of course purple is royal. Why else would Prince sing about standing in the Purple Rain?


??PURPLE PHONE, PURPLE PHONE??
I’m telling my kids this was Prince.

About 9:10 am EST I remembered today was pre-order day. I opened the apple store app, found the 14 pro max, and ordered it using Apple Card installments with trade in of my 13 pro max. I will pick up a 256gb deep purple on September 17th at my local apple store. My first choice was space black, but that wasn’t shipping until October. As a guy, I am undecided if deep purple is too feminine but I always like getting the unique colors. This was the easiest iPhone preorder I’ve ever done.
Purple is the color of royalty. It’s a mix of blue and red. Nothing feminine about it. Just ask the Mopar guys with their Plum Crazy Purple ?. That said, I went with Space Black because I’m a neutral peasant lol.
