Autumn is the time for the iPhone launch. This year, the iPhone 14 is waiting, probably in late September.
According to tradition, there are many rumors circulating about upcoming Apple products. Factories that make iPhone parts are leaking like sieves, despite the company constantly trying to stop them. Apple also claims to be working with controlled leaks, without having any basis for these claims.
Believe what you want. But what do the rumors say about this year’s upcoming iPhone models?
Cover leak reveals Plus version (08.07.22)
One of the biggest changes Apple is expected to make with this fall’s iPhone models is that it will ditch the mini version in favor of a larger model.
An image posted on Chinese website Weibo claims to show an “iPhone 14 Plus”, according to 9to5Mac. It remains to be seen if this will be the name. Previously it was thought that it would be called the iPhone 14 Max, and not the Plus.
Judging by the photo, it has two cameras on the back, just like the regular iPhone 14 version. Both Pro models have three cameras.
– Pro only gets a new chip (03.07.22)
Usually the insider Mark Gorman in Bloomberg He claims that Apple will not be upgrading the processor on the entry model for this year’s iPhone models.
They will keep the same A15 processor launched last year, while only Pro models will be equipped with the new A16 Bionic processor.
The front camera has been greatly improved (12.06.2022)
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is often mentioned in connection with predictions and claims about upcoming products from the company. He claims the front camera will get one of its biggest upgrades in a long time with this fall’s iPhone models.
In a blog post on Average He writes that the new camera gets autofocus, rather than the fixed focus that Apple has used in the iPhone so far. It should provide better selfies and videos taken with the front camera. It will also have a six-element lens, compared to the previous five, and a better aperture of f/1.9 (up from f/2.2, which has been about the same since the iPhone 11).
In the fall of 2021, Apple released four new iPhone modelsStandard edition and mini edition plus two Pro editions. (Plus, they came Smaller SE version outside the main launch.)
Looks like we can too this fall We expect four new modelsSizes 6.1 or 6.7 inches.
Mini becomes Max
However, Apple is literally making a big change to the “lineup”, allegedly ditching the mini version in favor of the Max version, he writes. 9to5Mac.
After that, the iPhone 13 mini was replaced with a 5.4-inch screen in favor of the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max.
The “regular” version, the iPhone 14, is said to have a 6.1-inch screen as before.
In addition, we can expect two professional versions again this year: iPhone 14 Pro at 6.1 inches and iPhone 14 Pro Max at 6.7 inches.
“Bus Pocket” disappears
As for the design of the iPhone 14, it is claimed that Apple (finally?) will remove the much-discussed “bus pocket” at the top of the screen. That is, instead of placing the front camera and the like on the screen, you make a pocket on top – to make the frames around the screen smaller. In English it is called “notch”.
Instead of a “bus pocket”, Apple will equip the upcoming iPhone model with cut-outs in the front camera screen that we know from many of the best Android models.
The pictures were leaked on the Chinese website Weibo He suggests, however, that Apple will go for something called a “piercing and pill” design. One round hole and a bead-shaped hole that houses the components for the camera and Face ID.
This new design is said to be reserved for Pro models, according to 9to5Mac.
Apple tends to give the Pro models features that make them more exclusive than the regular models.
For example, the iPhone 13 Pro has a stainless steel frame, while the iPhone 13 has an aluminum frame.
this year claimed Apple replaces stainless steel on Pro models with a titanium alloy frame. This is supposed to be more scratch resistant and lighter.
In a video on Youtube Technician John Prosser also claims that the camera bump will disappear on this year’s iPhone models.
The camera module itself is said to be getting bigger and better, from 12 to 48 megapixels according to Mac rumors. But instead of making a bigger bump, the entire phone gets thicker.
Not surprisingly, only Pro models are rumored to get the new camera module, though we’ll likely see some camera improvements for the standard versions as well.
Launching in September
There have been rumors for several years that Apple will do this Drop the Lightning connector All right, and they’re going to him Place the Touch ID sensor at the bottom of the screen on the iPhone. The prevailing opinion around the rumor mill seems to be that this is still a few years away.
Apple has yet to announce when this year’s iPhone will be released, but it usually holds it at the end of September. In June, the company will hold its annual WWDC Developer Conference, where we will likely learn about the next version of iOS – iOS 16.
