iPhone 14: Leaks, Rumors, and What To Expect?

iPhone 14 Leaks Rumours

There have been numerous leaks and rumors about the product that we’ll cover in this article, which we’re only three months away from a new generation of iPhone models, so you’ll know what to anticipate from the upcoming iPhone 14.

1. No More iPhone Mini

The first being a discontinued iPhone mini. In its place, will be a larger entry-level model. So the upcoming lineup will consist of a 6.1-inch iPhone 14, a 6.7-inch 14 Max, a 6.1-inch 14 Pro, and a 6.7-inch 14 Pro Max.

2. Notch Design Changed

The lack of the notch will likely be the most obvious modification. To maximize screen space and enable a consistent bezel around the edge, Apple is reportedly replacing the notch, which has been present since 2017, with a hole-punch design. The drawback is that the 14 Pro models will probably be the only ones to use the new hole-punch design. The two less expensive 14s have the same notched design as the iPhone 13 from the previous generation.

3. Camera System

The 14 Pro models’ camera system will be another distinctive feature. which is anticipated to have an 8K video recording capability and a 48-megapixel camera. New features like pixel binning will be possible thanks to this bigger lens. which combines information from numerous smaller pixels on the camera’s image sensor to produce smaller, 12-megapixel photos with better low-light performance. However, if the lighting is good, the full 48 megapixels will be used to take the picture.

Additionally, 8K video recording will increase the durability of iPhone video recordings. Aside from enabling ultra-high resolution video that is optimized for augmented and mixed reality devices, 8K displays are soon to be available. like the alleged AR headset that Apple is working on. The camera bump on the Pro models is anticipated to be even thicker as a result of these upgrades.

4. More Stronger Design and New Color!

The iPhone 14 is rumored to come in a brand-new light purple shade that shifts slightly in hue depending on the lighting. Additionally, the 14 Pro models could be upgraded to titanium frames from stainless steel. creating a chassis that is both stronger and lighter.

5. New Thermal System

One of the most frequent criticisms of iPhones is that they tend to overheat more quickly than other smartphones, which Apple could finally address. The iPhone 14 might have a new thermal system for the vapor chamber to combat this. which could use water evaporation to more effectively cool the device.

6. A16 Chip only for PRO Models

Due to cost and supply issues, the chip in the 14 and 14 Max models will most likely be the same A15 as the one in the iPhone 13 right now. The new flagship iPhones would use an older chip for the first time, according to Apple. However, as usual, an upgraded A16 chip is anticipated for the 14 Pro models.

7. Apple is expected to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X65 modem

The iPhone’s modem, not its processor, will likely receive the more exciting update. The first 10-gigabit 5G modem with faster connectivity speeds, the Snapdragon X65, is anticipated to be used by Apple. Additionally, it makes some satellite connectivity options possible, such as Emergency Messages. which would enable users to text contacts and emergency services using a satellite network in the absence of a cellular or WiFi signal. Along with SMS and iMessage, it will be a new messaging protocol with gray message bubbles. There will be a limit on message length.

8. Apple’s New Radio Frequency Chip

In a new radio frequency chip that is smaller, uses less power on 5G, and adds support for WiFi 6E, Apple may be utilizing their own technology for the first time. which will provide the quick wireless connections required for augmented reality experiences.

9. No Sim Slot in iPhone 14

The new iPhone 14 models may be the first to lack a physical SIM slot because Apple allegedly told American carriers to get ready for eSIM-only smartphones by 2022. Although the 14 Max model is specifically three weeks behind schedule due to pandemic delays in China, Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 14 models at an event in September. Consequently, it might be available in limited quantities at launch or be released later than the other models.

Final Words

So that’s what you should expect from the upcoming iPhone 14, although these are all based on rumors and leaks and are subject to change once Apple makes an official announcement.
