Ok, admittedly, it’s a bit early for iPhone 14 rumors, iPhone 13 isn’t even on the market. But it’s still nice what leakers think the upcoming design is.

Jon Prosser, the infamous Apple leaker
, just after Apple’s invitation to the iPhone 13 keynote, released pictures of a smartphone that could be released as the iPhone 14 next year. With a year left until the premiere, not all features of the device are finalized and are subject to change. The idea behind the iPhone 14 design is set to stay and get into the hands of users over the next year.

And we have to agree with the leaker: Apple is returning to its glorious design from twelve years ago and is virtually relaunching the iPhone 4 with the next generation. And the iPhone 4 remains Apple’s most beautiful smartphone ever. A few design details of the iPhone 14 are direct takeovers from its ancestor: the volume up and down buttons are round again. However, the renderings do not show whether the small engraved symbols of plus and minus are also being used in the design of the iPhone 14. These were definitely included with the iPhone 4.

Instead of a rocker for volume control, the iPhone 4 comes with two steel buttons.

Titan frame

The metal framing of the two glass sides no longer closes at the edges, as is the case with the iPhone 12, but allows a tiny gap as with the iPhone 4. It is to be hoped that Apple has learned from past mistakes and the new device’s antenna surround can no longer cause the “grip of death”. The manufacturer is likely to switch from stainless steel to titanium for the frame, which is in line with previous rumors from the industry.

Prosser shows his own renderings in his video, but these are based on the images and blueprints from his sources, so the Apple logo is on the back under the glass and no longer directly on the surface. Speaking of the back: the camera hump disappears almost completely, the three lenses, lidar sensor and flash close almost seamlessly with the surface. This is a significant improvement in the design, as the camera module was already a bit protruding on the iPhone X.

Hole instead of notch

The appearance of the upcoming iPhone 14 will also change significantly on the front: Apple is switching from a horizontal notch for the Facetime camera, infrared sensors and microphone

to a small hole in the display glass just for the Facetime camera
. The Face ID modules move under the glass, the microphone remains visible as a narrow strip at the top of the screen, the small round cutout in the display glass will not affect the quality of the photos from the Facetime camera. According to Prosser, the under-glass camera competition suffers from notoriously poor photos. Apple cannot afford this, as the iPhone camera is one of the main selling points.

Still lightning

In the renderings, Prosser has shown a Lightning connector on the bottom of the case, but this will become increasingly difficult to argue with over time. With the latest proposals, the EU is pushing for standardized connections such as USB-C, and Apple has also shown with the example of the iPad Pro that an iOS device does not burst into flames if it is charged with a USB-C cable instead of Lightning.

iPhone 14

According to Prosser, the images shown in the video refer to the Pro line of the iPhone 14, the entry-level devices such as iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will adopt the same design language, differ slightly in the camera module and the possible colors. It is not yet known which special edition color Apple has chosen for the iPhone 14. Rumors are circulating that champagne gold is making a comeback, but we’ll have to wait a little longer to find out – until September 2022.
