There is no definitive iPhone 14 Pre Order date available yet, however, based on the information we have so far, we can make a decent approximation as to when it will be.
The next iPhone event, at which the iPhone 14 and all its features will be fully revealed, is scheduled for sometime in September, though Apple have yet to confirm a specific date.
Typically, Apple iPhone events occur earlier in the week, and the iPhone pre order dates are at the end of that same week. The full release date / shipping date for the pre-ordered iPhones is then usually around 10 days after the iPhone event.
iPhone 14 pre order date prediction
Based on all the above info then, if Apple sticks to their previous release pattern, we expect the iPhone 14 Pre Order date to be between 9th – 30th September.

iPhone 14 production delays?
‘Reliable Apple anaylyst’ Ming-Chi Kuo has mentioned that he’s seen some indication of production issues with the new iPhone 14, but these seem to be mostly limited to the iPhone 14 Max.
He believes the iPhone 14 is still on track for a September 2022 release date however, certainly for the main iPhone 14 model, and it should be emphasized that Apple typically go to great lengths to make sure iPhone production matches expectations as closely as possible, to the expense of all other production, given that the iPhone is their most lucrative product.
So, eager customers can still look forward to iPhone 14 pre order in September as planned.
