The iPhone 14 rumors have happened to fold pace even though the iPhone 13 is still comparatively novel. In fact, there was a foremost rumor and unproven design disclosed ahead of the existing phone’s launch.
It’s still the initial days in the rumored series, so we recommend you to take a serious eye to the info tidbits to date; we have completed precisely that underneath. And we have also chosen not-together 7 biggest rumored iPhone 14 upgrades so far.
With a fresh and innovative design, the return of Touch ID, enhanced cameras, and even USB connectivity, there’s a lot to make Apple’s next phone rather convincing, to the extent that you might want to wait for the iPhone 14.
With all that in observance, here’s what we have heard so far about the iPhone 14, why it figures to be one of the major Apple products of 2022, and what we would like to see from next year’s smartphone.
iPhone 14 latest rumors
- Another suspected leakage has further tipped the iPhone 14 Pro to come with a notch-less display, with it picking for a punch-hole selfie camera in its place.
- Another leaker has requested the iPhone 14 could drop the Lightning port and go for USB-C in its place.
- Our iPhone 14 vs iPhone 13 comparison lists all of the rumored differences so far.
iPhone 14 possible release date and price
There is still no hint on a possible release date for the iPhone 14. But going by preceding Apple iPhone release events, we would assume to see the iPhone 14 make its debut in September 2022.
As for the worth, it’s also tough to forecast. But we are doubtful the iPhone 14 will match the price of the iPhone 13, which starts at $799 for the regular iPhone 13 and $999 for the iPhone 13 Pro. Though, there could be no iPhone 14 mini at all, so we would assume a higher 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max to cost $899.
From there, the iPhone 14 Pro could cost $999 and the iPhone 14 Pro Max $1,099 or more.
No iPhone 14 mini?
In spite of the iPhone 12 mini’s apparently reduced sales, Apple has discovered an iPhone 13 mini. But the mini could be toast after that, as the firm will allegedly shake up the iPhone 14 lineup for 2022. There could be a bigger iPhone 14 Plus or Max to go along with the regular 6.1-inch iPhone 14. So, there would be two regular size phones and two larger screen iPhone 14 models.
This was further backed up by Prosser, who is a video demanded the iPhone 14 Max will be the standby for a mini phone, offering a 6.7-inch display only deprived of coming with several pro features and thus a heavy price tag. Given the craving for bigger phones, an immense yet more reasonable iPhone could be just the thing for iPhone fans.
Dumping the iPhone 14 isn’t the only big modification predictable against the iPhone 14. See our iPhone 14 vs iPhone 13 evaluation for all the major rumored alterations so far.
iPhone 14 design
Conferring to Jon Prosser and his Front-Page Tech video, the iPhone 14 will look like an iPhone 12 crossed with an iPhone 4, in that it’ll stick with flat edges. But on those edges could be a mute button and a group of curved buttons for volume central, harking back to the iPhone 4.
Allegedly, the sides of the iPhone 14 could be made out of titanium, which could make it harder and sturdier than the preceding iPhones, while the back would hold the glass surface but apparently with a satin-like finish. When it comes to the edges, there are rumors that a next-gen iPhone will be portless, but Prosser claims the iPhone 14 will feature Lightning ports.
One more design change possibly in the cards for the iPhone 14 is the trio of rear cameras will no longer project from the iPhone’s rear but sit even with the back. Assumed progressions in camera sensor technology and lens manufacturing, could be an opportunity.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has also added his views on the iPhone 14 leaks and has claimed the next Apple phone will have “a complete redesign” setting is rather far apart from the iPhone 13. That’s because, according to Gurman “Apple’s engineers were working behind the scenes on superior things that will take more time,” and as a result, we are ready to see more noteworthy variations for the iPhone 14 over the iPhone 13. And the most prominent change is set to be the concluding elimination of the display notch, that’s been current since the iPhone X; more on that later.
A set of iPhone 14 idea renders takes into account most of these design changes and has showcased an Apple phone we would very much like to see.
Said concept phone has no notch, slain the back camera bump and comes with USB-C connectivity, how probable such changes are is undeveloped to the conversation, but we confidence there’s some piece of truth to this perception.
iPhone 14 display
We are expecting a confrontation in the iPhone 14 series, as we will allegedly see a typical iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro come with a 6.1-inch display, and a likely iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max to sport a 6.7-inch display. So no more 5.4-inch mini.
Specified the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max have a 120Hz refresh rate display, we’d it would be great to see all iPhone 14 models have such a screen, probable using an LTPO panel or a development of that display tech. However, one report from The Elec says that at least one iPhone 14 model with sport an LTPS display, which means a 60Hz panel could be projecting around.
An always-on display would also appear logical for the iPhone 14 given it was tipped for the iPhone 13 but never threw it into the newest iPhone.
The maximum continuing rumors around next-gen iPhones incline to be centered about the elimination of today’s notorious display notch.
But the iPhone 14 is tilted to finally kill the notch, with Apple allegedly going for a punch-hole front-facing camera in its place, like many of the finest Android phones. Prosser’s renders, again apparently based on leaked info, show how the iPhone 14 could opt for a selfie camera set in a punch-hole cut out to on the left-hand side of the phone. That would give the iPhone a decent lump of top screen space back.
iPhone 14 cameras
We haven’t heard a lot about the cameras of the iPhone 14 so far, but there are some fascinating rumors. One report from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo tips a 48MP main sensor for the iPhone 14 Pro models, which would be a big jump from the 12MP camera on the iPhone 13.
Improved telephoto abilities would also be cherished, as the iPhone lags behind schedule the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S21. In fact, it would be rather neat if Apple drew motivation from the Galaxy S21 Ultra and opted for a subordinate telephoto camera with approximately a 10x optical zoom.
One Apple patent points to Apple working on a periscope-style zoom camera, which could make its way to the iPhone 14, or at least the Pro models.
iPhone 14 specs, battery life, and charging
So far, we only have very little info on the possible iPhone 14 specifications. We are rather confident that 2022’s iPhone will make use of an A-series chip design by Apple. To be expected A16, the chip will practically positively offer a prominent boost in both processor and graphics performance over the A15 Bionic tipped for the iPhone 13.
The iPhone 14 may feature a 4nm chip from TSMC, which would be even lesser and more effective than the 5nm A15 Bionic slated for the iPhone 13. However, a fresh report claims that TSMC is having delinquent manufacturing the smaller chips, which means the iPhone 14 could stick with a 5nm chipset. If so, it will be the first time an IPhone’s gone three years with the same-size system-on-chip.
See our take on a possible iPhone 14 4nm A16 Bionic chip and what it means for you as specialists consider in on the profits.
It’s also conceivable that the iPhone 14 will feature an Apple-made 5G modem, subsequent to Apple’s achievement of Intel’s modem business. This would seemingly give Apple more control over both the 5G performance and battery life influence.
On the storage side, we would expect Apple to endure with the options it has for the iPhone 13 range, which starts at 128GB and go up to 1TB for the Pro models.
Though, a fresh rumor has the iPhone 14 tipped to get a huge 2TB of onboard storage. Given no Samsung phone bids this, and they’ve earlier been substantial with storage, we’re skeptical of an iPhone having the most storage on a smartphone to date.
Certainly, with the ProRez video on the proposal, which can chew storage, it would questionably make sense for Apple to rise the storage of its Pro phones. But we are still taking such a rumor with a thoughtful happening in future.
iPhone 14 USB-C
One of the most continuing rumors around the iPhone 14 is that it will droplet the Lightning port and go for USB-C connectivity as a replacement. As declared earlier, Prosser has articulated doubt on this being the case. But other leakers have advertised the USB-C rumor, noting that the iPhone 14 Pro will come with USB-C.
With the unique European Union looking to force device makers to accept uniform charging and cables by 2024, the days of the Lightning port could be added up to; Apple has a big European occurrence after all. But the panel is out on whether Apple will make such a transfer in time for the iPhone 14.
We would welcome USB-C connectivity, given Apple’s iPads and MacBooks have accepted the port. But Apple can determinedly stick to its guns when it comes to the iPhone, so we will reserve our predictions until more rumors come into the main stage.
iPhone 14: what we would like to see
- A fresh design: Prosser’s renders of the iPhone 14 tease a rather striking-looking phone. But it’s not a massive jump in Apple’s manufacturing design appealing. Granted, Apple makes some of the finest-looking phones around, but we would like to see if it could push phone design ahead; possibly the iPhone 14 range could comprise the much-rumored iPhone Flip foldable phone.
- No notch: The iPhone 14 could come with a notch-less display, and we hope they stand fruitful. Rumor has it this could be substituted with a punch-hole, but we would like to see an under-display camera so long as it didn’t influence imaging or Face ID performance.
- Touch ID: We would be somewhat assured that Apple will bring back Touch ID for the iPhone 14, even if it doesn’t occur via an in-display sensor. Perhaps the side-mounted power button could have a Touch ID sensor combined into it like the one on the iPad Air.
- Smarter features: While the Apple A-series chips have always been powerhouses, we would like to see Apple thin more into the AI side of things, much like the Google Pixel 6 is usual to do with its Tensor chip. That way we can have a cleverer, more reactive Siri to contest with the Google Assistant, as well as smarter features that more instinctively serve up the data or services iPhone 14 users want when they want them.
- Killer camera capabilities: The iPhone 13 Pro Max offers one of the best camera phones around, but we want to see Apple force its camera tech and hardware even further. As its viewpoints, the lead among the Pro Max and the likes of the Google Pixel 6. With the iPhone 14, we’d like to see Apple deliver a camera and a phone photography experience that distributes the floor with Android rivals, compelling them to up truly their photography game with their next-generation phones.
