If you’re in the market for a new iPhone, you’re probably deciding between an iPhone 13, an iPhone 12 or an iPhone 11 — or even an iPhone SE. But if you’re not quite ready to upgrade your current smartphone, or you just like staying up to date on Apple news, we’ve already started collecting iPhone 14 rumors, about a year in advance of its expected release date, which should be sometime in September of 2022.

The iPhone 14 was trending on Twitter even before Apple announced the iPhone 13, and the rumor mill for Apple’s 2022 smartphone is just heating up. We don’t know much yet about the iPhone 14’s release date, price, or other specs and features. The biggest rumors so far include a new notchless design (yeah, we’ve heard that one before) with a hole-punch front camera, under-display Touch ID, a more durable titanium alloy body, the elimination of the chunky rear camera bump, a shakeup of the four-phone lineup with new screen sizes and the death of the iPhone Mini.

Unveiled at a virtual event in September (alongside the Apple Watch 7, iPad Mini 6 and iPad 9th-gen), Apple’s latest flagship phone lineup, which includes the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini and iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max, is on sale now. While we wait for more intel on the iPhone 14, here’s our comparison of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 12, and the iPhone 12 and iPhone 11. Plus, here’s how the iPhone 13 stacks up to Apple’s last five years’ worth of iPhones. We’ll update this story as new information becomes available.
