Every fall, a new iPhone model is released, and this year is no exception. There are still a few months until the 2022 iPhone 14 models are released, but rumours regarding the phone's modifications and enhancements have been circulating for quite some time. The iPhone 14 is expected to contain the most significant upgrades in years, and anticipation for its release is palpable. The "iPhone 14" range is expected to undergo considerable changes, according to reports. The difference between standard and pro models will grow. Apple will discontinue the 5.4-inch iPhone mini in favour of bigger iPhone models for its flagship devices. Apple is likely to release four new iPhones with screen sizes ranging from 6.1 to 6.7 inches. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will be the entry-level models, while the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be the higher-end "Pro" models.
Here's everything we know so far about the much-anticipated iPhone 14 series — though we'd be extra suspicious this close to launch, since there's still plenty of time for things to change.
No more iPhone 14 Mini?
Despite the iPhone 12 small's low sales record, Apple released an iPhone 13 mini alongside the other iPhone 13 models last autumn. The tiny model, on the other hand, is no longer available, since Apple is believed to be overhauling its iPhone 14 selection for 2022. A bigger iPhone 14 Plus or Max, in addition to the standard 6.1-inch iPhone 14, might be launched. As a result, two standard-sized phones and two iPhone 14 models with bigger screens will be available.
No Notch and New Face ID?
So far, most "iPhone 14" rumours have focused on the pro models, the "iPhone 14 Pro" and "iPhone 14 Pro Max." This might be because Apple in 2022 looks to be taking a different approach to advancements.
In the pro variants, the notch is expected to be replaced with a pill-and-hole cutout, a 48MP camera, and the speedier A16 processor.
The normal variants, on the other hand, are likely to be very similar to the existing iPhone 13.
Apple is anticipated to preserve the dual-camera arrangement on the "iPhone 14." A 12MP wide lens and a 12MP ultra-wide lens are included in the package.
For quite some time, Apple's pro iPhones have been rumoured to include 48MP wide cameras. This enhancement will result in a significant boost in photography abilities, but it will only be accessible on the more costly models. Regular models should maintain their 12MP cameras as a consequence.
Another enhancement to the selfie camera is possible. Apple may choose for a 12MP ultra-wide lens, allowing the iPhone to take centre stage.
According to a rumour from late April 2022, Apple might improve the selfie camera with a bigger aperture of f/1.9, up from f/2.2.
Face ID, which was launched with the iPhone 13, will continue to be used by Apple. The components will be housed in a notch on the conventional "iPhone 14" versions. Apple has also included a new Face ID feature that works with masks, eliminating the requirement for both biometrics. Face ID can now scan the region surrounding a person's eyes to verify their identification if they have it turned on.
The iPhone 14 is projected to cost around the same as the iPhone 13, which starts at $799 for the regular model and $999 for the iPhone 13 Pro. However, because there may not be an iPhone 14 tiny, an iPhone 14 Max with a 6.7-inch display is projected to cost $899.
The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to cost $999, with the iPhone 14 Pro Max costing $1,099 or more.
Lightning port stays?
Unfortunately, the iPhone 14 is likely to join the long list of Apple products that were supposed to use USB-C but instead use Lightning. Information that has been leaked According to ApplePro, the iPhone 14 Pro versions will not have USB-C, instead opting for an upgraded Lightning connector with USB 3.0-like data transfer capabilities.
Longer battery life
Apple's 2022 iPhone might have a longer battery life, according to a rumour from Taiwan's Economic Daily News (via MacRumors). This is said to be because of a new 5G chip that might provide the future iPhone Wi-Fi 6E connectivity.
iPhone 14 adopts Wi-Fi 6E
The iPhone 14 might be equipped with Wi-Fi 6E, according to a November memo from Kuo. According to the expert, the components necessary for Wi-Fi 6E may be in limited supply. Wi-Fi 6E is also said to be featured in Apple's next virtual reality gear.
Previous rumours said that the whole iPhone 14 series will be updated to an A16 chip, which would be an enhancement above the A15 chip used in the previous iPhone. In March, however, Kuo predicted that the A16 would only be found in the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, leaving the 14 and 14 Max with the A15.
The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max look to be in a league of their own, based on all current rumours. Because telephoto zooms will once again be exclusive to the pros, we claim that. But also because the future iPhone 14 Pros are rumoured to incorporate on-display Touch ID, obviating the need for a notch in favour of a punch hole.
Furthermore, the iPhone 14 Pro versions are rumoured to contain a 48MP primary camera, which is greater than the ordinary iPhone 14's 12MP camera.
The A16 Bionic chip is slated to power the iPhone 14 Pro, while the year-old A15 Bionic chip is expected to power the iPhone 14.
This time around, according to analyst Jeff Pu, Apple will launch all four iPhone 14 models with a 120Hz display and 6GB of RAM.
