The iPhone 14, or the iPhones of 2022, claim to be the next flagship range of phones from Apple. They will complement the iPhone SE 3, and will seek to introduce striking novelties in a market in which it seems that there is no room for more shocking revolutions in smartphones. let’s collect everything we know about the iPhone 14 in one place to have all the information accessible.
What design will the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have?
We know very little about what the iPhone 14 looks like, but the first few renders indicate that would finally eliminate notch of your screen thanks to the fact that Apple would have found a way to hide the necessary sensors for Face ID under the pixels of its screen. At the moment the most recent sources confirm that the substitute for notch it is going to be a double hole and will be present exclusively for the ‘Pro’ models.
But that would be reserved for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, as there are leaked CAD plans of the standard iPhone 14 still showing the notch and a design almost identical to that of the iPhone 13. The same plans of the iPhone 14 Pro contradict Prosser and continue to show the bumps for the cameras.
These phones would also no longer have a bump for their cameras: we would have a completely flat back that will delight those of us who suffer from OCD seeing how the phone “dances” when we put it on the table. The detail that is not yet known is whether this change implies that the iPhone 14 will be thicker or the cameras will be thinner. Perhaps the rumored advances in periscope lenses allow for the latter.
About colors, it is still too early to have concrete information. What does circulate among the rumors is that at least one of these models may have titanium finishesa very light and very resistant material.
What sizes will the iPhone 14 range have?
For the first time in a long time, rumors say that Apple will modify the iPhone models. we would have large screen models (6.7 inches) both ‘Pro’ and ‘No Pro’, in addition to the standard 6.1-inch models. The mini model disappears, possibly because the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini have not had the level of sales that Apple aspired to.
Other leaks say that the Pro models will have a little more height, although they are contradicted by some leaked CAD plans that add thickness to the terminal and even larger cameras. The absence of notch will cause a slight increase in the diagonal of the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro Max up to 6.12 and 6.69 inches respectively. It’s a very small difference that we probably won’t notice too much beyond slightly thinner edges.
A function that we could see in these screens could be the arrival of the always on screen: Ross Young thinks that we will see it although at the moment he does not put the hand in the fire for it. To achieve this, screens with a minimum variable frequency of 1 Hz are needed. We can have clues about this at WWDC 2022, when iOS 16 is presented and shows new features on your lock screen.
As to whether we would have a folding model, at the moment there is no information to corroborate it beyond patents and other clues that indicate that Apple is developing the technology for it. But the safest thing is that it will not arrive with the iPhone 14 if not later. In fact, it could arrive earlier on an iPad and not on an iPhone.
What features will the iPhone 14 have?
Although there are no rumors that describe it, it is obvious to bet on a new chip in the iPhone 14 that exceeds the power of the A15 present in the iPhone 13. We can tentatively baptize them as ‘A16’, and possibly they would be the first Apple chips with 3nm technology from TSMC. That means they will be able to deliver more performance while consuming less power.
There is a fact that contradicts this and bets that this ‘A16’ chip will be present only in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The standard iPhone 14 would continue to carry the A15 chip, taking advantage of the fact that its advantage over Android chips would still be great a year later. This has only happened once, when Apple released the iPhone 5c with the same chip as the iPhone 5 and relegated the new chip only to the iPhone 5s, and it may be due to component shortages.
The most recent rumors also suggest that we will have 6 GB of RAM on the iPhone 14 Pro; and one of the lenses will be 48 MP to be able to record video in 8K quality and/or take 12 MP night photos at much higher quality. Until now Apple has not offered that recording quality in any of its products. As for storage, it is rumored that the most expensive models can have 2TB. Returning to RAM, the standard iPhone 14 would also have 6 GB.
There are no rumors about the battery, but it is expected that we will see at least the same one that we have in the current iPhone 13. Regarding connectivity, we would continue with a Lightning port, although it could adopt the USB 3.0 data transfer rate and be 10 times faster. And perhaps we could see the end of the physical SIM card, at least in some of the iPhone 14 models as a first step to get rid of them permanently.
The arrival of some molds in the rumors also indicates even larger cameras than those of the iPhone 13, which would allow better autofocus and lighting in video calls.
When will the iPhone 14 be available?
Most likely, Apple will announce the iPhone 14 at an event in late summer 2022in the typical key note early or mid-September. The launch, if the component crisis and logistical problems allow it, would be at the end of the same month. If there are delays, that launch could be in October.
What price will the iPhone 14 have?
The prices of the iPhone 14 they should be very similar to the ones we have right now in the iPhone 13 range: 909 euros base price for the 6.1-inch model and 1,259 euros for the base model of the iPhone 14 Pro Max. The question will remain as to what price we can see for the 6.7-inch non-Pro-Max model, which could circulate between 999 and 1,099 euros. Keep in mind that all of this is still speculation, not based on leaks of any kind.
