For the first time since the Galaxy Note series sailed off into the sunset, Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra has introduced a pen to flagship phones. However, may Apple continue the flame and offer a stylus to the iPhone 14?
We could write about how this would be the finest iPhone ever or create a balanced argument on whether it is possible, but we don’t want to waste your time.
We can all agree that this will not happen.
Rumors of an iPhone stylus date back many years.
Apple Pencil rumours have been around for as long as we can remember. Since 2017 to 2020 to 2021, there have been theories about what may happen in 2022.
These weren’t broad reports about “iPhones getting a stylus”; rather, they specified specific gadgets, such the iPhone 11 and, more recently, the iPhone Flip.
How many iPhones did we see that truly functioned with the Apple Pencil during this time period? There is not a single thing. As a result, there is no reason to believe that the iPhone 14 will have a stylus, unlike its predecessors.
When hearing rumours, remember to take them with a grain of salt.
We hear a lot of crazy iPhone rumours, but they seldom come to fruition.
MagSafe, 5G, and 120Hz displays, which have been included in recent iPhones, are all features that appeal to a wide range of consumers. However, it does not seem that leakers have received this message.
Strictly speaking, styli are only beneficial to a small percentage of iPhone users.
The reason for this is because, with only four members of the typical iPhone family using a stylus, only a quarter or a half of the population will benefit from this function.
As a contrast, Samsung offers a plethora of phone lines, each of which has a plethora of models. In other words, if you don’t want a pen on your Samsung phone, there are lots of other options available to you.
Is there ever going to be a stylus-enabled iPhone?
You never know what’s going to happen in the future, so don’t rule out the possibility that user habits may alter and styli will become more popular.
There’s still a long way to go until Apple’s present blocky design is replaced with a stylus-friendly one, but it’s a step in the right direction.
A pen must also be tiny enough to fit inside an iPhone, unless Apple has an other storage solution in mind.
In the meanwhile, we could see an Apple Pencil tablet compatibility with the phone, which might be useful for some sorts of artists and designers that need to work across several devices. In any case, it’s unlikely to happen any time soon.
No notch, an improved camera, and an iPhone 14 Max are all we’re truly hoping for with the iPhone 14’s new rumoured features.
If this feature isn’t popular enough for Apple, we don’t expect it to be popular enough for the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which is a popular stylus phone and Motorola is making a significant push into this market segment.
