New iPhone 14 - our one-stop shop, constantly updated throughout the year, with all the leaks and rumors dissected and filed in easy-to-read sections. Immerse yourself in it and look like an in-the-know genius with friends.

iPhone 14 Pro Max - what's the biggest phone of the year for Apple? The 14 Pro Max, we think - both in terms of size and expected impact on the market. This is where all the good rumors come to be sorted.

iPhone 14 Max - Bye bye iPhone 14 Mini, it's all about the Max this year - a non-pro version of Apple's largest handset.

Apple Watch 8 - this is the other thing we're likely to see at the September event... a new thing from Apple to strap to your wrist.

Apple Watch 8 Rugged Edition - anything you can do, Samsung, Apple can do... better? Let's see with this round of rumors on Apple's Watch 5 Pro rival.

Right, so here we are - our first live, on-the-go dissection of some of the top rumors we've seen in the last week (and a fair smattering of the stuff we're pretty confident of seeing next month, based on the consistent leaks over the last year).

I've been writing about and covering iPhone launches since 2008, and one thing that's clear is that since the iPhone 6 or so, we've seen far more leaking of key elements of the phones in the build up to the launch, a far cry since the days of the iPhone 4 being found in a bar and everyone losing their minds...

Right, let's start with a live one: the iPhone 14 price. Recently, respected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo pointed to some strong results from one of the iPhone suppliers, stating they believed that it was going to be making a vast majority of the iPhone models.

That manufacturing company, Hon Hai / Foxconn, has suddenly increased its financial outlook, which leads Kuo to confirm his belief that the iPhone will increase in cost around 15%.

What would that mean for you, if you're looking to buy one of the new iPhone 14 models?

Based on the fact Apple likes to keep its iPhone prices ending $49 or $99, I suspect the new iPhone 14 will start at $799 and the smaller iPhone 14 Pro to hit $1099. This is just an educated guess at this point though - the ASP (average selling price) mentioned means that it could be Apple spreads the cost through the range to keep it balanced.
