We are just weeks away from Apple’s September release of the iPhone 14 and with some of the big rumours heating up, it’s quite clear what we can expect from Apple’s latest release. Keep reading for the rundown of the four biggest features on the way.
Introducing the max regular iPhone 14
It’s no secret that the iPhone mini did not garner as many sales as Apple had hoped for so it’s expected that it will be scrapped for the new line of iPhones. Instead, the new iPhone 14 will be available in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch versions so you can choose a larger device that isn’t a pro. The pro versions may be slightly taller than these to accommodate for the hole punch and pill design. If you’re someone who loves a smaller phone, the iPhone 14’s might not be your favourite release.
Design differences in pro and regular models
After so many rumours, it is basically confirmed that the iPhone 14 pro will have a new hole-punch + pill design. The design has remained the same since the iPhone X, so it’s quite a big upgrade for the 14. However, it’s not the whole line of 14’s getting the new design. The changes are reserved for the pro models, so if you want to take advantage of the new feature, you need to pay a little extra. Analysts have suggested that the entire range won’t be getting a new design until at least 2023.
A15 Bionic for iPhone 14, A16 Bionic to iPhone 14 Pro
In another first for Apple, they make break from tradition this year and release some iPhone 14 models with the same A15 chip as the iPhone 13. The A15 chip would be upgraded to 6 GB from 4 GB and it would power both the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 6.7-inch 14 Max. The new A16 SoC would be reserved for the expensive 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max models, so at this point, if you want a better device, you’ve got to pay a lot more.
The 14 Pro will get a 48MP Wide sensor
While the 48MP wide sensor is the biggest front-facing camera update in years and will definitely unlock new camera capabilities, it’s expected that Apple will stick to shooting photos in 12MP. The update is available on the pro models only, and the regular iPhone 14’s will stick with a 12MP sensor in all lenses.
Apple analysts predicted that the new camera will feature autofocus which will significantly upgrade the quality of photos and videos in comparison to the current cameras. Also, it is expected that the camera will feature a larger f/1.9 aperture.
As of now, these are the most talked about rumours that we will expect to see next month. But you never know with Apple and things could be switched up last minute. Until then, you know what to get excited about in September.
