Yellow iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus now available in store

By William Gallagher

As the first preorders for the new iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus hit doorsteps, the model is now also available for pickup and same-day delivery.

It started as a dubious rumor, but then it was true -- the new iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are available in yellow. Precisely which shade of yellow has occupied YouTube reviewers far in excess of any other feature of the new phones, because the only difference is that color.

Following the opening of preorders, now Apple Stores worldwide have taken stock. A sample taken across Apple Stores in the US and Europe show that both the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus can now be immediately ordered, or picked up.

That extends to models with each of the different capacities. Either Apple has deftly estimated the number of iPhones to make, or there is none of the same rush to order that so often marks new iPhones.

Wireless carriers are offering incentives on Apple's iPhone 14 lineup, bringing the cost down to free in some instances. See each carrier for terms and conditions pertaining to the offers.

Aside from that yellow color, these are not really new iPhones. But as with last year's green, the phones do mark almost exactly the midpoint between the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 15 ranges.
