When will the iPhone 14 appear?
Apple’s flagships – the iPhone range – are usually presented in the fall. Therefore, we can assume that the iPhone 14 will also be presented in September.
Which iPhone 14 variants can we expect?
There probably won’t be an iPhone 14 Mini. However, we can expect four iPhone 14 models: the iPhone 14, Max, Pro and Pro Max. The models should come in two different screen diagonals. Here’s what the iPhone 14 line could look like:
- iPhone 14: 6.1 inch display
- iPhone 14 Max: 6.7 inch display
- iPhone 14 Pro: 6.1 inch display
- iPhone 14 Pro Max: 6.7 inch display
How do iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro differ from each other?
We probably don’t expect any groundbreaking differences between the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro. Mainly the camera technology of the Pro models will probably set itself apart from the standard variants. The display diagonal may even be the only difference between the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Both Pro variants should get a camera with a 48-megapixel sensor and eight gigabytes of RAM. The iPhone 14, on the other hand, will probably have to make do with a 12-megapixel camera and six gigabytes of RAM. Apple could also make a difference between the models in the case material.
What innovations does the design of the iPhone 14 bring?
Of course, there are still no confirmed design details for the new iPhone 14 generation. Nevertheless, the leaker Vova LD has already rendered images of the iPhone 14 Pro. The basis for this are all previously known rumors about the smartphone.
Accordingly, the design of the iPhone 14 Pro – and thus probably the designs of the other models in the series – will hardly differ from its predecessor. Only a few small things could be changed. The frame should be made of titanium and the entire case should be a little narrower. The camera module should also shrink a bit. According to Vova LD’s design, the notch could disappear on the front. Instead, there are now two slots for the selfie camera and the Face ID sensors. And although very few will actually miss the notch, the possible new design causes displeasure. The problem: the size of the openings. On some drawings they look anything but decent. Whether the design will really come true remains unclear, however, since the renders are only based on rumors.
How much can the display of the iPhone 14?
When it comes to the refresh rate, Apple is far behind the competition from Samsung, Huawei and Co., because the models up to the iPhone 13 only offer 60 Hertz, while the other 120 Hertz (or more!) are already standard. Apple is currently using 120 Hertz for the Pro models, but there is definitely more! It remains to be seen whether the standard model of the iPhone 14 will also be equipped with this refresh rate.
Another possible innovation is the so-called always-on display. The fact that smartphones can display information such as the time when the screen is off is also standard on Android devices. iPhone users are still waiting for the feature. That could finally change in 2022 – at least for the future owners of the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. At least that’s what Apple expert Mark Gurman claims in the business magazine Bloomberg. Accordingly, Apple could introduce the possibility of always-on displays with iOS 16.
iPhone 14: Lightning or USB-C connector?
It is the eternal dilemma of all iPhone users: you always have to take a different charging cable with you for your Apple devices than for other technology. The iPad is showing a trend towards USB-C connectivity, but what will the iPhone 14 look like? Opinions differ greatly on that. However, Apple could be under pressure from the EU, which is demanding an end to the variety of connections by 2024.
What cameras will the iPhone 14 lineup have?
According to well-informed insider Ming-Chi Kuo the camera of the iPhone 14 Pro models could make a big leap. The smartphones will probably be able to record 8K videos and rely on a 48-megapixel image sensor. There may also be a periscope camera with 10x optical zoom, which can take better telephoto photos
How to unlock iPhone 14?
A fingerprint sensor is an extremely practical feature in times of masks. It remains to be seen whether we will get a Touch ID with the iPhone 14 – the rumor mill is not unanimous. It could also be that the well-known notch (the gap at the top of the screen) is reduced or disappears completely and the technology for Face ID moves under the display.
Price: How much does the iPhone 14 cost?
Since the iPhone Mini will most likely be discontinued, an indirect price increase could definitely come our way. Because if the iPhone 14, which is expensive compared to the iPhone Mini, becomes the entry-level model, users will have to pay more if they want a new iPhone at all. Whether the prices will change compared to the iPhone 13 is not yet known.
