iPhone 14 Leaks – What We Know, And What We Think We Know

Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 14 series later this year, and a steady stream of rumors have revealed quite a bit about the upcoming devices.

Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 14 later this year, and a steady stream of rumors over the past several weeks have seemingly revealed quite a bit of information about the upcoming devices. The iPhone 14 will be an upgrade over the iPhone 13-series launched late last year. The current iPhone lineup comprises the iPhone 13 mini, the iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

According to a report from earlier this week, Apple finally reclaimed the top spot in the global smartphone market in Q4, 2021, after spending the previous three quarters at number two. The stellar performance was primarily due to the popularity of the iPhone 13 series, and the company will be hoping that the iPhone 14 lineup will enjoy similar popularity among buyers.

According to rumors, there might not be an iPhone 14 mini this year, primarily because of poor sales of the iPhone 13 mini. Instead, the four devices in the lineup this year will include a 6.1-inch iPhone 14, a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max. The next-gen iPhones are also said to undergo a significant design change, with Apple expected to get rid of the reviled notch in at least some of the models. Instead, the devices will reportedly ship with dual punch-hole cutouts to house Face ID components and the front-facing camera. One of the cutouts is said to be circular, while the other is said to be oblong or pill-shaped. Apple is also said to be working on under-display Face ID hardware, but it’s not immediately clear if they’ll make their way to the 2022 lineup.

A16 Bionic, 6GB Of RAM, And 2TB Of Storage?

The rear camera module in the iPhone 14 models will also reportedly see a new design that will eliminate the unseemly bump at the back. Thanks to a thicker body, the cameras themselves, as well as the flash and LiDAR scanner, could sit flush with the back panel. In terms of the cameras, some of the rumors suggest that there might be a ‘periscope’ zoom function in at least some of the devices, but Apple could still push the feature back to next year’s lineup. There’s also talk about a titanium body for some of the models, as well as a possible new vapor chamber thermal system for better cooling.

As for the details about the processor, the devices are expected to be powered by the A16 Bionic chip, built on either a three or four-nanometer process by TSMC. They are supposed to bring better performance and higher efficiency over last year’s A15 Bionic, which bodes well for the iPhone 14 devices. All the models are also expected to ship with 6GB of RAM and possibly, up to 2TB of storage. They’re also likely to ship with Wi-Fi 6E connectivity for high-speed and low-latency wireless signals. There are also rumors about Apple getting rid of the physical SIM slot in favor of eSIM in the iPhone 14, but it remains to be seen if that will happen this year.

Meanwhile, on a disappointing note, the latest rumors suggest that the 120Hz ProMotion displays might be reserved for the more expensive models. Earlier rumors indicated that all four iPhone 14 models might ship with the high-refresh panels, but that might not happen this year. There’s also talk of port-less iPhones that will get rid of the Lightning port in favor of MagSafe wireless charging, although that’s another change that Apple might not implement this year. As for the 5G modem, the company is expected to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X65 chip as its own modems are not ready for prime time.
