Apple’s online store is down ahead of preorders for the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and AirPods Pro 2, which should be available at 5:00 a.m. PT in the United States.
“We can’t wait either,” reads the message from the Apple Store when visiting the US website. “Pre-order starts at 5:00 a.m. PDT. See you soon.” Apple has been doing 5:00 a.m. preorders for the past few years instead of the 12:01 a.m. PT preorders we used to have.
The iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and AirPods 2 are launching in over 30 countries and regions around the world, and a list of launch times can be found in our time zone guide.
Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro models feature the most notable upgrade, with a new Dynamic Island that replaces the notch, an A16 chip, and a 48-megapixel camera. The standard iPhone 14 models have a regular notch, A15 chip, and 12-megapixel camera, though low-light improvements have been made across all devices and lenses.
Both iPhones support 5G and a new satellite-based Emergency SOS feature that can connect you to emergency services even when you don’t have a Wi-Fi or cellular connection. There’s also a collision detection feature which can detect when you’re in a serious car accident, alerting the authorities. Collision detection uses an improved gyroscope and accelerometer.
The AirPods Pro 2 have been improved in almost every way, offering better sound, 2x improved noise cancellation, a transparency mode that can block out loud sounds like sirens and road construction more intelligently, and new controls to adjust the volume directly on the device.
Pricing for iPhone 14 starts at $799, while pricing for iPhone 14 Pro starts at $999. The AirPods Pro 2 are priced at $249.
