The iPhone 14 series will be unveiled in September 2022. Although there is still a long time before the release, the revelations about the iPhone 14 series have already circulated on the Internet. In order to facilitate everyone to understand the related news of the iPhone 14 Pro, the following is a detailed arrangement for everyone.
The earliest revelations claimed that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will use the latest A16 chip. The base iPhone 14 model will still use the A15 chip.
It was recently revealed that the iPhone 14 will feature a new chipset, most likely dubbed the A16 or A16 Bionic. According to Ross Young, a supply chain expert in the field of smartphone displays, the chip will be manufactured on a 4nm process and is an upgrade from the iPhone 13’s 5nm A15 Bionic. According to foreign media DigiTimes, the technology may shrink to 3nm.
However, we’ve recently heard that the 5nm process may be used again, as TSMC is reportedly having trouble producing 3nm (or 4nm) technology.
It is also rumored that both the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will come with 8GB of RAM. 6GB of RAM is by far the most that an iPhone has. The base iPhone 14 model will still come with 6GB of RAM, but there should be an upgrade for the Pro model.
Industry insiders speculate that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro may feature a 6.1-inch (or 6.06-inch) OLED panel with a resolution of 1170 x 2532, while the iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max may feature a 6.7-inch (or 6.68-inch) 1284 x 2778 OLED Screen. The Pro model has a 120Hz refresh rate, while the other models have a 60Hz refresh rate.
Bloomberg Goodman and well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo have both said that the iPhone 14 will replace the bangs with a punch-hole camera, and another whistleblower claimed that the camera cutout will be pill-shaped, which means it will be larger than a regular hole-punch camera.
According to Ross Young, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will use a “hole + pill” design, similar to an exclamation mark, which is supported by many people.
Ming-Chi Kuo believes that the main camera of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max may use 48MP for the first time (the current model is 12MP), and the camera module on the back of the fuselage will be more prominent. All iPhone 14 models except the base model are expected to feature triple-lens cameras, presumably capable of recording 8K video.
The iPhone 14 Pro model may have up to 2TB of storage (up from the current maximum of 1TB), and the base model will come with 512GB of storage.
It is reported that the iPhone 14 series charging port will move from the Lightning port to USB-C , and Apple is considering using this port for the iPhone 14
Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. This claim is doubted by many and seems unlikely.
However, according to an Apple patent, users will use MagSafe chargers instead of Lightning, and the European Union is pressuring Apple to adopt the USB-C interface. Users will be surprised if Apple removes the Lightning port from the iPhone 14.
On the battery side, there seem to be improvements, with sources claiming it will be larger than previous generations, and the phone will be thicker due to the large battery.
- According to reports, the base iPhone 14 will cost $799, and the iPhone 14 Max will cost $899.
- The iPhone 14Pro and Pro Max are expected to cost $1,099 and $1,199, respectively.
In addition, sources believe that we will see Touch ID fingerprint recognition on the iPhone 14 , which is contrary to the previous Apple no longer develops the on-screen Touch ID function. Goodman has said that Apple is all-in on Face ID right now, so it doesn’t sound like that’s going to happen, but if it does, it’s likely to come alongside Face ID, not replace it.
Another source said that under-screen Face ID will not appear in the iPhone 14 series. Earlier, foreign media TheElec reported that Samsung is currently developing a new under-screen camera technology for Apple to use this feature in the next-generation iPhone. Ross Young believes that the iPhone 16 series in 2024 may only see under-screen Face ID technology.
