iPhone 14 reportedly surfaced in Indian regulators’ database

The Consumer Authority of India may have leaked important information about the upcoming iPhone 14 ahead of the September 7 Apple event. The possible model number of the next iPhone has been spotted on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) as the Cupertino company readies the new phone.

As discovered by MySmartPricethe Bureau of Indian Standards now lists a new iPhone model number ahead of a new iPhone announcement.

India’s national standards body under the Ministry of Consumer Affairs currently lists the iPhone XR (A2105), iPhone 11 (A2221), iPhone 12 (A2403) and iPhone 13 ( A2633). It now shows a new model number A2882, which could be for the next iPhone 14 series.

This might make sense as Apple would produce the iPhone 14 in India and China at the same time. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested this in an article earlier this month:

My latest survey indicates that Foxconn’s iPhone production site in India will ship the new iPhone 14 6.1″ almost simultaneously to China for the first time in 2:22 (India being a quarter or more behind in the past).

In the short term, India’s iPhone capacities/shipments still have a huge gap with China, but this is an important step for Apple in building a non-Chinese iPhone production site.

This implies that Apple is trying to reduce geopolitical impacts on supply and sees the Indian market as the next key growth driver.

While the standard iPhone 14 is rumored to not have many new features compared to the iPhone 13 – as it will retain the same design and processor – Apple is readying a Max version with a bigger screen and battery. great but without the premium price.

On the other hand, all the new features are expected to be added to the iPhone 14 Pro versions with a new design, new processor and improved cameras.
