Citing industry sources, the Taiwanese publication is referring to components being shipped to manufacturers such as Foxconn or Pegatron for final assembly of the iPhone 14 over the next few months.

“Component suppliers have kicked off their shipments for the next-generation iPhone series slated for launch in September, according to industry sources,” notes the report.

Apple’s iPhone 14 lineup will likely consist of a 6.1-inch iPhone 14, a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max. The company is also expected to discontinue the 5.4-inch mini model this year.

The iPhone 14 Pro models will likely have the notch replaced by a new pill-shaped cutout and hole housing Face ID sensors and the front camera.
