What is known thus far about the alleged iPhone 14 is listed below.
Apple’s new iPhones may represent the most significant improvements in years, according to growing iPhone 14 speculations. According to the rumors thus far, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will have a more streamlined new look, a quicker A16 Bionic CPU, and a crisper new primary 48MP camera.
The small is anticipated to be discontinued in favor of a new 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, which might also affect the normal iPhone 14 range. However, given that it may have a very similar design to the Pros(opens in new tab) and maybe even last year’s A15 Bionic CPU, we’re also concerned that the iPhone 14 may be somewhat dull in comparison.
For additional information on the key speculated changes, see our comparison of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro(opens in new tab). See what potential enhancements there may be by comparing our iPhone 14 to iPhone 11 (opens in new tab).
Here are the details we now know about the iPhone 14, why it is predicted to be one of Apple’s most popular products in 2022, and what we want to see from the next flagships. Visit our specialized iPhone 14 Pro portal if you’re interested in learning more details about the Pro range.
the most recent speculations about the iPhone 14 (Updated July 17)
- Since the iPhone 14 Pro seems to be sticking with the 12MP, 3x optical zoom telephoto camera from the iPhone 13 Pro from the previous year, it might be a major disappointment.
- The iPhone 14 Pro seems to be the best iPhone 14 model, according to recent renderings.
- The most anticipated iPhone of the next generation may be delayed because the iPhone 14 Max is allegedly running behind schedule.
- The iPhone mini gets destroyed in a purported case leak for the iPhone 14 series.
- We debate which iPhone models will be retired when the iPhone 14 is released as its release date approaches.
Estimated pricing and release date for the iPhone 14
According to all the current speculations, we predict the iPhone 14 series will debut on September 13.
Pre-orders for the iPhone 14 range are then anticipated to open the Friday after the Apple event, September 16, with the devices likely going on sale a week later, on Friday, September 23. This would occur ten days after the alleged Apple event.
There is one catch to this whole thing, and that’s the rumors that the iPhone 14 Plus/Max may be delayed since production is running behind schedule. That would probably suggest it would go on sale at the same time as the other iPhone 14 models, but it may arrive a little later than the other three. This wouldn’t be out of the question since Apple has in the past staggered the introduction of its iPhone models.
LeaksApplePro, a reasonably trustworthy leaker, claims that three of the four iPhone 14 versions are expected to see price increases.
The MSRP of the new iPhone 14 Max is anticipated to be $899, while the basic iPhone 14 will likely remain at $799. However, the iPhone 14 Pro may cost $1,099, an increase of $100 over the $999 iPhone 13 Pro. And the price of the iPhone 14 Pro Max may rise similarly, reaching $1,199. We hope it’s not true, since this rather large jump in launch pricing would hurt your pocketbook.
According to a different leaker, Shadow Leak on Twitter, the ordinary iPhone 14 Pro will cost $1,099 (opens in new tab). The same may be said by @TheGalox_, who asserts that the price of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will both increase by $100 apiece (opens in new tab). It is thus probable that the Pros will be more expensive this year.
If you’re debating whether to purchase the iPhone 14 or the iPhone 13, we’ve picked up several reasons to do it right now rather than wait for the iPhone 14. (opens in new tab).
The iPhone 13 small seems to be the most probable phone to be dropped from Apple’s portfolio of smartphones since when a new iPhone is released, it often marks the end of the line for existing iPhones. As a result, we looked into which iPhone models could be dropped when the iPhone 14 debuts.
iPhone 14 Max replacing iPhone 14 mini
The corporation is apparently planning to overhaul the iPhone 14 range for 2022, which might spell the end for the iPhone small. Along with the standard 6.1-inch iPhone 14, there may also be a bigger iPhone 14 Max. There would so be two standard-sized phones and two iPhone 14 variants with bigger screens.
This was further supported by leaker Jon Prosser, who said that the iPhone 14 Max will replace a tiny phone and would only have a 6.7-inch display without a ton of professional capabilities and a high price tag. Given the demand for bigger phones, a huge but more reasonably priced iPhone would be ideal for iPhone enthusiasts.
A purported case leak that allegedly revealed four iPhone 14 models—the normal iPhone 14, the iPhone 14 Plus/Max, the iPhone 14 Pro, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max—provided more proof in favor of this assertion. An iPhone 14 mini that was smaller was conspicuously lacking.
From our perspective, the reported iPhone 14 Max should give Apple’s rivals pause since it has the potential to transform the game for the company. The two phones’ potential differences are examined in our comparison of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max.
The iPhone 14 Max may make its debut under a new moniker, so be mindful of that. Apple’s 6.7-inch entry-level phone, according to leaker Lanzuk, will be called the iPhone 14 Plus. Calling the new phone the iPhone 14 Plus would prevent confusion with the iPhone 14 Pro Max, however no reason has been provided. We will continue to refer to the phone as the iPhone 14 Max until other sources confirm the iPhone 14 Plus rumor.
Not all major changes from the iPhone 14 are anticipated, such as the removal of the iPhone 13 small. See our iPhone 14 vs. iPhone 13 comparison for a complete list of the most significant rumors to date.
iPhone 14 design
The iPhone 14 will retain flat sides, making it resemble a hybrid between an iPhone 4 and an iPhone 12, according to Jon Prosser and his Front Page Tech video. However, those sides could also have a mute button and a row of circular volume center buttons, evoking memories of the iPhone 4.
The iPhone 14 is said to have titanium sides, making it harder and more durable than prior iPhones, but glass would still be used for the back, although with what seems to be a satin-like sheen.
It doesn’t appear likely that the standard iPhone 14 will get a set of cameras flush with its rear panel given some schematics that show the iPhone 14 Pro models with the raised camera array being even bigger on the iPhone 14 Pro and Ming-Chi Kuo’s claim that a larger module is needed to house a 48MP camera.
According to certain reports, the iPhone 14 would finally do away with the display notch. However, as things stand, Apple seems that only the iPhone 14 Pro will lack a notch, choosing instead to combine a single circular camera cutout with a pill-shaped cutout next to it to accommodate Face ID sensors. The display would seem much bigger if the bezels had been decreased.
With what looks to be a supply chain leak picture showing the display panels for each of the four iPhone 14 versions, these claims gained more credibility. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max seem to have done away with the notch in favor of a mix of a pill-shaped cutout and what looks to be a punch-hole camera or sensor, while the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max appear to be keeping the display notch.
MySmartPrice also acquired CAD renderings of the standard iPhone 14, similar to what it did with the Pro. We anticipate that the same design will be used on the iPhone 14 Max, which will have a 6.7-inch display.
As you can see, these renderings don’t really change much from the iPhone 13 that we now have. The rear cameras are arranged diagonally, and the notch is still somewhat smaller. In fact, it makes us question what the iPhone 14 will really change.
Max Weinbach, a reliable leaker in the past, published purported schematics for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Both display a phone that is 0.2mm thicker and has a greater camera bump. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max won’t be all that different from its predecessors in terms of height and breadth, according to the schematics, which is an interesting finding. The new hole-punch/pill-shaped cutouts are also shown in these schematics.
Using these schematics as a starting point, CAD designer Madmix produced images that provide an accurate representation of the iPhone 14 Pro’s dimensions. These provide a definite idea of what the notch-less display would ostensibly look like, but they also give us the feeling that the normal iPhone 14 may not be as impressive if this design is not chosen.
According to one report, there will be the standard Midnight, Starlight, and Product RED color choices along with a new purple option and a lighter sky blue in place of the present blue. However, that leak has since been removed, making it difficult to assess its reliability. Nevertheless, this rendering of the purple iPhone 14 Pro by artist Souta (opens in new tab) illustrates how the color might seem in the actual world.
The inclusion of the purple option was the most significant alteration, according to a summary of the state of iPhone 14 color speculations published by MacRumors(opens in new tab) in May. The article also includes the current iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 sections’ color possibilities, which are black, white, blue, and [Product] Red. (Take note that Apple now refers to its black and white smartphones as “Midnight” and “Starlight,” respectively.) This time, the pink and green hues would not be used.
iPhone 14 display
A reorganization of the iPhone 14 lineup is anticipated; according to reports, the normal iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro will have 6.1-inch displays, while the iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max might have 6.7-inch displays. So the 5.4-inch mini is obsolete.
According to a Shadow Leaks report, the iPhone 14 will feature a 6.08-inch (rounded to 6.1-inch) screen, while the iPhone 14 Max would have a 6.68-inch screen (rounded up to 6.7 inches). The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro Max also have that. The Pro versions, however, may be becoming a little bit bigger (to 6.12 inches and 6.69 inches, respectively), maybe due to redesigned bezels.
Given that the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max feature displays with 120Hz refresh rates, it would be amazing to see all iPhone 14 models have screens with similar refresh rates. These screens would probably be made using LTPO panels or a development of those panels that could scale down to 1Hz.
The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to have an always-on display thanks to this utilization of panel technology. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the iPhone 14 Pro will finally get the always-on display that has been long rumored to be coming to the next generation of iPhones. This display will be used to display “weather, calendars, stocks, activities, and other data” on the lock screen while maintaining a low refresh rate to conserve battery life. The top Android phones already have the ability to show such material on a display without waking the phone up, so next-generation iPhones would have this capability as well.
Although code in the iOS 16 beta seems to indicate an always-on display functionality, it is anticipated that the normal iPhone 14 will continue to use the straightforward lift-to-wake option. Instead, the iPhone 14 Pro will probably enable any always-on display feature thanks to its adjustable refresh rate.
The iPhone 14 Max is rumored to sport a 120Hz refresh rate display, according to a recent supply chain report. LG will reportedly build the screen in this instance, although it’s not yet known whether the conventional iPhone 14 will continue with 60Hz refresh rates or have a higher refresh rate.
According to one claim from The Elec(opens in new tab), at least one iPhone 14 model will include an LTPS display, which suggests that a 60Hz screen may remain in use. The assumption that the regular iPhone 14 would not feature a fast-refreshing display has only been confirmed by subsequent supply chain reports.
Although it’s not quite the fast 120Hz refresh rate we’d like to see, a 90Hz refresh rate display for the regular iPhone 14 models would be a significant increase over a 60Hz screen. This sad rumor about the specifications is supported by another tip.
It’s interesting to note that according to a story in The Elec, Apple may stop using the OLED panel supplier BOE because of the company’s suspected deception on thin film transistor width. Then, Apple would only be able to work with LG and Samsung.
iPhone 14 Touch ID
The reintroduction of Touch ID will be one of the iPhone 14’s most notable upgrades over its forerunners. Like many fingerprint sensors on the top Android phones, it would reportedly be built beneath the iPhone 14’s display as opposed to being incorporated into a power button.
However, it’s still unclear how plausible this is. For a few more years, according to analyst Ming Chi-Kuo, there won’t be an iPhone with Touch ID or Face ID hidden behind the display. This would have been frustrating since having a Face ID option is incredibly helpful in these times of mask usage.
But with iOS 15.4, Apple has improved Face ID so that it can identify a genuine user even while they are hiding their identity. It works extremely well, indicating that Apple may have avoided the necessity for biometrics that focus on the fingerprint.
iPhone 14 cameras
The speculations around the iPhone 14 cameras are beginning to surface more often, and they’re starting to sound fairly intriguing. According to one rumor from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the 48MP primary sensor for the iPhone 14 Pro versions might represent a significant improvement over the iPhone 13’s 12MP camera. Taiwanese research group TrendForce supports the 48MP primary camera claim, indicating that Apple is once again concerned with megapixels, at least when it comes to the company’s Pro phones.
However, a frequent Apple insider predicts that the basic iPhone 14 models would maintain their 12MP cameras, with the Pro versions being the only ones predicted to have a 48MP primary camera.
A larger primary sensor will be appreciated regardless of how precise it turns out to be. But because the iPhone lacks features like those seen in devices like the Samsung Galaxy S21, we’re especially interested in a better telephoto lens. In fact, it would be quite cool if Apple took a page out of the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s book and decided to include a secondary telephoto camera with, perhaps, a 10x optical zoom.
According to an Apple patent, the company is developing a periscope-style zoom camera, which might appear on the iPhone 14 or at the very least the Pro versions. The periscope camera won’t be available until the iPhone 15 in 2023, according to Ming-Chi Kuo today.
All variants of the iPhone 14 are expected to have an updated front-facing camera, which is expected to have a bigger aperture (f/1.9 vs. f/2.2 on the current iPhone), 6-part lenses (up from 5-part lenses), and built-in autofocus, according to a more recent update from Kuo. Together, they should make it easier to maintain focus and reduce image distortion when taking brighter pictures and videos.
See our list of the top rumors and leaks about the iPhone 14 camera for additional information.
specifications, battery life, and charging for the iPhone 14
According to a number of reports, the A15 Bionic processor will remain in the iPhone 14, while a new A16 chip is anticipated for the iPhone 14 Pro models. According to Mark Gurman’s most recent tip, Apple is concentrating its efforts on its M-series Apple Silicon processors for the most recent Mac computers, which will cause the chip difference.
According to information Gurman obtained from his sources, “Apple’s silicon engineering division had to divert much of its testing, development, and manufacturing resources to Mac processors.”
This chip speculation has gained support from Ming Chi-Kuo, who also said that Apple intends to ship more iPhone 14 Pro variants than regular iPhone 14 models.
Kup stated in a Medium(opens in new tab)(opens in new tab)(opens in new tab) post that “The latest A16 processor will be exclusive to two iPhone 14 Pro/high-end models, significantly boosting the shipment proportion of new iPhone high-end models in 2H22 to 55-60 percent (vs. 40-50 percent in the past)”. This will probably result in Apple pushing the iPhone 14 Pro strongly in favor of the iPhone 14.
If you’re curious about how much more power the A16 could provide, several benchmarks that have leaked may be able to provide some insight.
All four iPhone 14 models, according to Kuo, will contain 6GB RAM, an increase from the 4GB seen in the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 small. The Pro versions, on the other hand, are said to have quicker and more effective LPDDR 5 RAM, while the basic models reportedly employ LPDDR 4X RAM like the current iPhone 13 range.
We anticipate Apple will maintain the storage choices it now offers for the iPhone 13 range, which start at 128GB and go all the way up to 1TB for the Pro versions.
The iPhone 14 may, however, have a massive 2TB of inbuilt storage, according to a report. We are sceptical about the claim that an iPhone has the most storage on a smartphone to date given that no Samsung phone provides this and they have always been liberal with storage.
The iPhone 14 and 14 Max will ship with 64GB of storage, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max would ship with a staggering 256GB, according to a second analyst note from Jeff Pu. The latter is plausible, but not the former, since it would be just half of the iPhone 13’s standard storage.
The iPhone 14 could possibly come in an eSIM-only version, according to GlobalDate analyst Emma Mohr-McClune. The change would increase the appeal of the iPhone among users who require dual SIM functionality, such as business users and international travelers.
According to a Weibo source who claims to be familiar with the iPhone 14 family’s battery capacities, all models—aside from the iPhone 14 Pro Max—will see a slight increase in size. There is some shrinkage of the 14 Pro Max, but hopefully not enough to affect the battery life of the device as a whole.
5G and satellite connectivity on the iPhone 14
Following Apple’s acquisition of Intel’s modem business, it’s possible that the iPhone 14 will come with an Apple-made 5G modem. Although it might only be introduced with the iPhone 15 next year, this would presumably give Apple more control over both the 5G performance and battery life impact.
A new 5G chip that Apple is reportedly planning to use in the new iPhones could lead to lower power consumption without sacrificing performance. According to a recent report from Taiwan’s Economic Daily News, Apple has reportedly ordered 5G chips from TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) for its upcoming iPhone 14 lineup.
According to reports, the radio frequency chips are made using a 6nm manufacturing technique, which would enable the provider to create a device that is physically smaller and uses less power without compromising performance.
Additionally, a smaller 5G processor would allow Apple to cram a bigger battery inside with more space. Consequently, the suggested chip may increase the phone’s total battery life when paired with higher power efficiency.
In relation to 5G modems, Qualcomm unveiled the X70 at MWC 2022. It’s doubtful that the iPhone 14 will use the new technology, which is anticipated to be a significant advancement over the X65 modem now in use, given its anticipated release date for the device is late in 2022.
While we’re talking about connection, an older iPhone 13 rumor has come back to life, claiming that the device would be able to connect to satellite networks, allowing users to text emergency services when cellular networks are unavailable. The iPhone 13 didn’t have that function, but according to tipsters, the iPhone 14 models may now include satellite connection as Apple works to improve the emergency features of its phones.
USB-C iPhone 14
For many iPhone generations, the Lightning connector has often been abandoned in favor of USB-C, and for a brief while with the iPhone 14, it seemed that this could be the case. It would make sense that the ordinary iPhone 14 would adopt USB-C after many leakers indicated the iPhone 14 Pro will do so.
Unfortunately, the iPhone 14 may be added to the list of Apple products that were said to switch to USB-C but ended up staying with Lightning. Stream Leaks ApplePro asserts that the iPhone 14 Pro versions won’t come with USB-C, anticipating that Apple would choose an improved Lightning connector with USB 3.0-like data transfer rates.
A USB-C iPhone is on the way, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, but not until late 2023. In other words, if he’s accurate, the iPhone 14 won’t have USB-C, but the iPhone 15 may. Bloomberg has also said that 2023 will be the year of USB-C and the iPhone, with Apple trying out new chargers and products in advance of the release of the iPhone 15 the following year.
iPhone 14: Software
When the iPhone 14 debuts in the autumn, if Apple follows the same pattern it has for the better part of a decade, it will have a new version of iOS. Since iOS 15 is the current version, iOS 16 is almost certainly coming soon.
Following Apple’s preview of iOS 16, we are now aware of the features the iPhone 14 will have. The new software also includes the option to modify Messages after you send them, changes to Maps and Wallet, a Safety Check function, and more. It also introduces the ability to add widgets to the lock screen (a prelude to the always-on display support expected for the iPhone 14 Pro).
For a sneak peek at the enhancements planned for the iPhone 14, you may download a public beta of iOS 16 this month.
In comparison to the iPhone 14 Pro
According to all of the current speculations, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max may be in a class by themselves. We say so because telephoto zooms are once again supposed to be offered exclusively by professionals. Furthermore, the rumored in-display Touch ID on the next iPhone 14 Pros would eliminate the notch in favor of a display with a punch hole.
Additionally, the 48MP primary camera on the iPhone 14 Pro versions will apparently be far clearer than the 12MP sensor anticipated for the standard iPhone 14. Additionally, it’s probable that the iPhone 14 Pros will be the only models to include USB-C connection rather than a Lightning socket.
The A16 Bionic silicon may power the iPhone 14 Pro, but the iPhone 14 is said to be running on the A15 Bionic silicon, which is one year old. For additional details on the alleged changes, see our comparison of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro.
Analyst Jeff Pu, though, thinks that Apple may offer each of the four iPhone 14 variants a 120Hz display and 6GB of RAM this time around.
What we’d want to see in the iPhone 14
According to which speculations are essential for Apple’s next autumn smartphones, we’ve rated the iPhone 14 rumors. But here’s a summary of what the iPhone 14 is expected to provide. Here is what the iPhone SE (2022) has to say about the iPhone 14 now that it has been released.
Prosser’s renderings of the iPhone 14 reveal a novel design and an appealing-looking device. But the appearance of Apple’s industrial design hasn’t changed much. Apple undoubtedly produces some of the most attractive smartphones available, but we’d want to see if the company could advance phone design further. Perhaps the iPhone 14 line will include the much anticipated iPhone Flip foldable phone.
No notch: We hope all the rumors we’re hearing about the iPhone 14 are true since it may have a notch-free display. If an under-display camera didn’t interfere with image or Face ID functionality, we’d be interested in seeing one.
Even if Apple doesn’t use an in-display sensor to reintroduce Touch ID with the iPhone 14, we’d be quite confident in its return. Perhaps a Touch ID sensor, similar to the one on the iPad Air, might be built inside the side-mounted power button.
Smarter features: Although Apple’s A-series semiconductors have always been powerful, we’d like to see the company focus more on AI capabilities, similar to what the Google Pixel 6 is expected to achieve with its Tensor chip. In order to compete with the Google Assistant, we will need a Siri that is smarter and more responsive. We will also need smarter features that offer up information or services to iPhone 14 users when they need them.
One of the greatest camera phones available is the iPhone 13 Pro Max, but we’d want to see Apple advance the hardware and software even further. The Pro Max now has a little edge over devices like the Google Pixel 6 and Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. We’d want to see Apple provide a camera and a phone photography experience with the iPhone 14 that completely destroys Android competitors, compelling them to step up their photography game with their next-generation phones. Catching up on the zoom front would also be beneficial.
Purchase the next Apple iPhone 14, which is scheduled to be on sale for Rs 79,900 on October 31, 2022 in India. The smartphone is anticipated to feature a 6.1-inch (15.49-cm) immersive display with a resolution of 1170 x 2532 pixels, which would allow you to enjoy viewing films and playing games with a clear view. Additionally, the phone is said to come in a 4 GB, 4 GB of RAM + 64 GB internal storage configuration. You won’t have to worry about running out of room to save your videos, movies, music, and other items with such high internal storage.
This new phone’s camera specs are quite remarkable. The smartphone is anticipated to include a dual camera configuration on the back and front. You will be able to take some captivating images with its 12 MP + 12 MP cameras. The phone also has a front-facing 12 MP + SL 3D camera for taking selfies and making video calls.
This Apple smartphone is marketed as having a Hexa-core CPU, which will enable you to access several programs and play graphically demanding games without experiencing latency. The device may also have a respectable 3115 mAh battery and the iOS v15 operating system. As a result, you won’t have to worry about your battery draining as you play games, listen to music, view movies or videos, or do other things.
The Apple iPhone 14 is said to include a variety of connection choices, including WiFi – Yes, Wi-Fi 802.11, b/g/n, Mobile Hotspot, Bluetooth – Yes, v5.0, and 5G supported by device (network not yet rolled-out in India), 4G (supports Indian bands), 3G, and 2G. In addition, sensors such the accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer, and siri may be used.
The smartphone is said to be 164 grams in weight and to measure 146.7 mm by 71.5 mm by 7.4 mm in size.
Price Of Apple iPhone 14 In India
The cost of the Apple iPhone 14 in India is anticipated to be Rs 79,900. On October 31, 2022, it is rumored that the Apple iPhone 14 will be released in the nation (Expected). The smartphone will probably be available in two additional RAM and storage configurations: Apple-iPhone-14-128GB-4GB-RAM and Apple-iPhone-14-256GB-4GB-RAM. The Apple iPhone 14 smartphone is available in the following colors: Black, White, Red, Green, Blue, and Gold.
