Everything We Know About the Upcoming iPhone 14

It’s been less than a month since the iPhone 13 was released, but Apple fans are already buzzing about the iPhone model that’s coming next year. Enthusiasts got even more excited when Apple leaker Jon Prosser released realistic depictions of the new iPhone design that was shown to him. The smartphone model seems to be getting a big upgrade as compared to its previous models, considering that there are major differences in its overall design. So if you want a sneak peek of what’s about to come, here are all the details that you need to know about the iPhone 14:

Design

The rumored design of the iPhone 14 features big changes in its display. In fact, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo states that the iPhone 14 will be available in two screen sizes: 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches. Apple is also maximizing this large screen size by getting rid of the front camera bump, which has noticeably been growing with each new iPhone release. So instead of featuring a bigger front camera notch, next year’s iPhone will have a punch-hole display that will make the front look more seamless. Moreover, Prosser states that the iPhone will also shift from the usual aluminum and stainless steel body to a titanium one.

Specifications

The potential iPhone 14 specs sound promising, since experts are anticipating a new A-series chip design from Apple. The highly anticipated A16 chip is likely going to provide noticeable improvement in its processor and graphics performance, compared to the A15 chip in the iPhone 13. Though the iPhone 14 is rumored to have a smaller and more efficient 4 nm chip, there are also reports claiming that manufacturers are having problems producing the smaller chips. Either way, fans are hoping that this upgrade will fix existing bugs, such as the one that crashes Apple devices when the dates are manually changed to the oldest one possible.

Battery Life

These spec upgrades will require a lot of energy and, consequently, affect the phone’s battery life. So, it’s not surprising that Apple has changed its battery components with the release of the iPhone 13. To accommodate this internal change, the tech manufacturer will improve their rigid-flex PCBs to support the new design. Using these new PCBs, Apple can utilize more space for other internal components and design these parts more efficiently. Moreover, this PCB design sends electric signals faster within the device. By making these changes, Apple can equip its newer iPhone models with increased battery capacity.

Camera Upgrades

iPhone fans particularly love the device’s image resolution. The good news is that the iPhone 14’s rear cameras are rumored to have improved sensors and lenses. In fact, it is believed that the iPhone 14 might support 8k video recording for the first time. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also states that next year’s models may have a 48-megapixel sensor, which is a huge jump from the iPhone 12’s 12-megapixel sensor. However, Apple may use an image-scaling algorithm that uses raw 48-megapixel data to create an image with a different resolution. Though this sensor can provide precision, the images’ pixels may be different from the advertised resolution value of the camera.

Apple never fails to provide its fans with new technologies to anticipate. So, it’s not surprising that Apple fans are already excited about the iPhone 14 model, considering the potential upgrades in its design, specs, battery, and cameras. Indeed, one can only expect that next year’s iPhone model will be more advanced and efficient.
