It’s time for a new look for the iPhone 14 line-up
Preliminary iPhone 14 speculations have claimed that Apple would discontinue the iPhone 14 small and replace it with a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max model. As reported by 9to5Mac, this shift has been confirmed.
It’s also been reported by 9to5Mac that the iPhone 14 Pro versions would feature bigger displays since the notch has been replaced with two cutouts. So the iPhone 14 Pro and the regular iPhone 14 models should look very different.
There has been speculation of Apple adding satellite connection to its phones ever since reports first arose shortly before the iPhone 13 debut last autumn. That talk has now been reignited. Using a satellite-equipped iPhone, emergency messages could be sent even when LTE or 6G connectivity were not available, the theory goes.
According to 9to5Mac, Apple is still working on satellite connection, despite the fact that the functionality didn’t make it onto the iPhone 13. It’s still not certain whether Apple will have this feature available for the iPhone 14 when it launches this autumn.
It’s possible that the iPhone 14’s basic and pro versions are receiving separate CPUs. According to this analysis, however, the disparities may not be as significant as they initially seem.
A new mobile chip designed only for the iPhone 14 Pro models was revealed by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo on Saturday. This year’s A15 Bionic processor is expected to power the standard iPhone 14, according to a report. It would be the first time that Apple’s new iPhones have been powered by distinct chips.
However, 9to5Mac has a follow-up report that provides additional information. Apple is expected to employ this year’s iPhone 13 Pro models’ A15 Bionic processor in the iPhone 14, according to 9to5Mac. In comparison, teardowns show that the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini have 4GB of RAM.
A15X is the name 9to5Mac has given the rumoured iPhone 14 Pro model’s A15 processor, which is a little upgrade over the current A15 Bionic. Apple has made similar differences with iPad CPUs in the past, so the move isn’t unique.
There are rumours that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be released without a notch when the iPhone 14 goes on sale this autumn. With Apple’s iPhone SE (2022) launch in the past, we anticipate to learn a lot more about the iPhone 14 in the coming months.
