Apple is gearing up to introduce the iPhone 14 series, and that finally has an official date to happen – September 7. During its “Fall out” keynote, Apple will introduce the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, 14 Max, and 14 Pro Max. In addition to that, we also expect a new AirPods Pro and the Apple Watch Series 8 with a new rugged Pro version. The iPhone 14 series certainly will be getting the spotlight and has also been the target of leaks in the past few days. We expect these leaks to intensify as the launch date is nearing. That said, a wave of dummy models is emerging from Asia. These models claim to show the iPhone 14 Pro selection of color options, including the iPhone 14 Pro Blue and Purple colorways.
Apple iPhone 14 Pro Blue and Purple colorways are sexy
The iPhone 14 Pro dummy models appeared on Weibo first. There are three conventional colorways – Graphite, Gold, and Silver. These colors have been available in the past years. The Dark Purple and Blue color options are exclusive to the new Pro lineup. Interestingly, the antenna bands of the iPhone 14 Pro Gold and Purple models have a special contrast with the frame. The antennas are white and can be easily noticed in these dark colorways.
Gizchina News of the week
The rumors about a Purple color for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max have been around for a while. Reports emerged earlier this year talking about this particular option. These rumors also claimed that this color shifts tone based on lighting conditions. Perhaps, it’s not something like Vivo’s changeable color tech, but the principle is the same. Interestingly, Apple has already paved the way for this color. Back in April last year, Apple brought a purple option for the iPhone 12 and 12 mini variants. The 24-inch iMac, 6th-gen iPad mini, and 5th Gen iPad Air also got Purple colorways. So, there is no reason for Apple to not bring this color, as it’s basically standardized in its portfolio.
UV light color-changeable back? Not exactly
According to MacRumors, Apple may adopt the tech used on the iPhone 13 Pro’s Sierra Blue colorway. The company adopted a new production process exclusively for Sierra Blue that uses “multiple layers of nanometer-scale metallic ceramics applied across the surface for a stunning and durable finish”. Apple may bring this same tech, instead of something super-advanced like Vivo and Realme are using with their color-changeable smartphones.
Below, there is another post on Twitter that depicts the Purple iPhone 14 Pro colorway and the camera’s bigger bump, made to fit the 48 MP snapper. It also shows the new punch-hole design for the Face ID sensors and front-facing cameras.

Worth noting, however, that you should digest these dummies with a pinch of salt. After all, they’re not made with 100% accuracy and are also made of plastic. Anyway, we can get a good overview of what the company is about to introduce. Apart from the Purple colorway, this Blue finish is also something new. It’s can’t be compared to the Blue iPhone 13 which has a lighter tone. Similarly, it isn’t he same as the iPhone 12’s series that has a subtle blue option. This new colorway has a higher saturation while still being darker.
Talking about the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, these two devices are the real upgrades for iPhone 13 owners. Unlike the vanilla iPhone 14 and 14 Max, the Pro models are getting the newer Apple A16 chip, 48 MP main cameras, and some exclusive iOS 16 features like Always On Display. The vanilla smartphones will stick with the Apple A15 and will bring the same notched design as the iPhone 13 series.
