Apple iPhone 14: Everything we know so far

Apple is anticipated to release a new iPhone — presumably dubbed the iPhone 14 — to replace the iPhone 13 next year, as is customary. This one got an early start in the rumor mill, with the first bits of information arriving soon before the iPhone 13 debuted. However, because it is so far in the future, the tidbits we have heard are sure to evolve and shift over the next year. Phones take a long time to manufacture, and market — or even global — factors like as the current pandemic and chip shortage may compel a change in plans before launch.

For the time being, here’s all we know about the forthcoming iPhone 14:

Pricing and release date for the iPhone 14 are available on the Front Page Tech website.

The next iPhone, like all previous Apple iPhones, is scheduled to be released in or around September 2022. We don’t know whether Apple will host a virtual event like the previous two years or hold its first in-person debut in years for the time being.

It’s unclear whether Apple will preserve the same pricing structure as the current iPhone lineup, or if it would lower the ordinary iPhone size down a rung to accommodate the anticipated iPhone 14 Max. In any case, Apple is likely to begin selling the iPhone at roughly $699, with costs rising to the mid $1,000s depending on configuration.

Models of the iPhone 14

Since the iPhone 5S, Apple has always released various iPhone models, and the iPhone 14 is expected to be no exception. Unlike the iPhone 13 and iPhone 12, the 14 is expected to drop the 5.4-inch iPhone 14 Mini model, according to various analysts.

As previously said, Apple will instead introduce a new iPhone 14 Max, a 6.7-inch version of the normal iPhone 14. This will be the same size as the existing iPhone 13 Pro Max model, but with a larger screen and battery for those who want a large screen iPhone experience without having to pay a premium for a better camera.

Design of the iPhone 14

Renders purportedly showing off the upcoming iPhone 14.

Depending on who you ask, the iPhone 14 will either include a design overhaul that will modify the style Apple has embraced for the previous four generations of iPhones — or it will simply be more of the same. Renders released by leaker Jon Prosser suggest that Apple will use the hole-punch design popularized by Android phones. This would imply the elimination of the now-iconic notch, as well as the use of an in-display fingerprint sensor in place of FaceID or the introduction of under-display Face ID.

The iPhone 14 may also retain the squared-off edges and larger buttons introduced with the iPhone 12, and for the first time, there may be no camera hump at the rear. Prosser’s renders are supported by previous information from prominent Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who also stated that Apple would remove the notch with 2022 iPhone models.

However, according to another insider, Apple will reduce the notch again, like it did with the iPhone 13, but it will not embrace a hole-punch design just yet. When it comes to design rumors, it’s difficult to tell which — if any — are real this far out from launch.

Cameras on the iPhone 14

Apple is exploring a 48-megapixel camera for the iPhone 14, according to Kuo. The business has stuck with 12MP primary cameras for the last three iPhones, so a 48MP main camera would be a significant upgrade, allowing for techniques like oversampling, which phones like the Pixel 6 and Galaxy S21 already use. Kuo also claims that the new iPhone would feature 8K video, cementing Apple’s position as the undisputed leader in mobile filmmaking. That’s fascinating because Qualcomm recently introduced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, its new flagship chipset, which supports 8K HDR video recording as well as a bevy of other A.I.-enhanced smartphone photography features. The ball is now in Apple’s court to answer with its own Bionic chips developed in-house.

The other reported camera enhancement for the iPhone 14 is focusing capabilities in the ultrawide camera. While Apple has already incorporated this for the iPhone 13 Pro, it will be extended to all models in the iPhone 14 series, allowing even people who buy the less expensive iPhones to snap sharper wide images.
