Apple has unveiled the Apple iPhone 13 series. When compared to the Apple iPhone 12 series, the iPhone 13 series provides significant improvements. The internet has been flooded with rumors about the iPhone 14, which is expected to debut in 2022 as the successor to the iPhone 13 series.
How many iPhone 14 models will there be?
Apple is expected to release four iPhone 14 series models, none of which will be tiny versions. The four models will be the Apple iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max, and a new iPhone 14 Max.
Will Apple release the iPhone 14 Mini?
No, With the 2022 iPhone lineup, Apple is taking a major step forward by killing the smallest (Mini) iPhone size, which they held for two years with the iPhone 12 Mini (2020) and iPhone 13 Mini (2021). Because the small model did not do well in terms of sales in 2020, Apple is expected to phase out the Mini after the 13 Series. So, there will be no iPhone 14 Mini in 2022.
What are the sizes of the iPhone 14 series?
In terms of display, according to Ross Young (a well-known display analyst), Apple will modify the display size of iPhone models in 2022 in comparison to models in 2020 and 2021. The following sizes will be available in the iPhone 2022 series:
- iPhone 14 – 6.1 inch
- iPhone 14 Pro – 6.1 inch
- iPhone 14 Max – 6.7 inch
- iPhone 14 Pro Max – 6.7 inch
iPhone 14 series design
According to FrontPageTech, the iPhone 14 series will appear quite similar to the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 series, but Apple will make small changes this time. In comparison to the 12 and 13 series, the 2022 iPhone series will feature a thicker chassis, which will allow Apple to fully eliminate the camera hump, resulting in a flat back panel with all camera lenses, LED Flash, LiDAR, and other camera sensors aligned with the rear glass back.
According to a JP Morgan Chase investor report, Apple is believed to be using Titanium for the iPhone 14 series, which will offer the side edges a more scratch-resistant and tougher construction, as well as being more corrosion-resistant than steel. This isn’t to say that all models will be constructed of Titanium; Titanium may only be used on the Pro versions. Apple may also alter the design of the volume controls to a circle, as seen on the iPhone 4, 5, and 5s, according to FrontPageTech. The speaker holes will be removed in favor of a longer Speaker grill. A full-screen iPhone without a notch or a punch hole, or even a foldable iPhone, which Apple has been working on since early 2021, is unlikely to arrive until 2023-24.
iPhone 14 series battery
When it comes to the battery, because the iPhone 14 Series will have a thicker chassis, Apple will undoubtedly take advantage of the extra space to fit in a larger battery. While it’s too early to speculate on the exact capacity, you can expect at least a 10% increase in the base model, i.e., iPhone 14, compared to the iPhone 13. This will undoubtedly add weight to the newest versions, so be prepared and begin exercising.
Apple to ditch notch in iPhone 14 series?
Ming-Chi Kuo predicted in March 2021 that Apple would abandon the infamous notch debuted with the iPhone X in favor of a punch-hole display like Huawei did with the Honor View 20. Don’t worry; Apple’s FaceID technology will still be present, but this time it will be hidden behind the display. It gives it an appearance that is comparable to other Android phones. If you like to see the little notch at the top of your iPhone and don’t want it to appear like an Android phone (for whatever reason), there’s a chance that the non-Pro versions will keep a smaller notch like the iPhone 13 Series.
Apple iPhone 14 series to feature A16 Bionic Chipset
Every year, modern phones get more powerful as the chips inside become more power-efficient and capable of handling any work. Apple utilizes the A-series chip in its iPhones, and the A16 Bionic chip will be used in the iPhone 14 Series. It was supposed to be built on TSMC’s 3nm design. However, TSMC later stated that manufacturing delays of 3-4 months are likely, making it difficult for Apple to receive them in time. As a result, we may see the A16 built on a 4nm process (successor to the A15 Bionic) rather than a 3nm technology in the near future. The iPhone will likely run on iOS 16.
Portless iPhone 14 series?
Unfortunately, as shown in FrontPageTech’s initial glimpse, the lightning port is likely to remain on the iPhone 14 series as well. However, the renderings they released were based on extremely early prototypes, and a legal case is now pending in the European Union, which might compel Apple to convert to Type C ports, at least for EU nations. So, there’s a little chance we’ll see a Type C connector on the iPhone 14 Series. Air charging technology is still in its infancy, so a portless iPhone is unlikely in the foreseeable future.
What camera upgrades will the iPhone 14 series have?
Regarding the iPhone 14 Series cameras, Ming-Chi Kuo said there are minor changes that Apple would use a periscope lens produced by Semco, which allows for optical magnification up to 10X. However, there is no concrete proof to back it up, and if it does happen, Apple will take its sweet time perfecting and presenting it in its unique style, so take it with a grain of salt.
If Apple postpones the periscope lens, Kuo predicts that the Pro versions will include a 48MP camera and 8K video recording. According to another source, Apple’s telephoto camera might consist of a seven-element lens.
iPhone 14 Release Date and Price
Update: Apple will release the iPhone 14 series on September 7, 2022.
Apple is anticipated to stick to its usual timetable for the next iPhone models, which means it will be released in September 2022, with shipping starting in the third or fourth week of September. There is currently no information on the cost of the iPhone 14 series; however, due to the Global Chip shortage, prices are likely to climb significantly compared to iPhone 13 models.
So that’s what we know about the iPhone 14 Series, which will be released in 2022. Having that said, what do you think about the upcoming iPhone 14 series? Do let us know by dropping a comment down below.
