The iPhone 14 is coming soon. Although there are many rumours about the next big iPhone, we don’t yet know what will be featured in this phone. However, we can speculate based on reports and rumours. Rumours and reports about all the features of the iPhone 14 suggest that it will not be a drastic redesign from the iPhone 13.
The iPhone 14 will probably look a lot like the iPhone 13, it’ll be clad in titanium alloy and available in a massive form factor that packs in even more features.
1. Display and Camera
Apple may eventually remove the wedge-like notch with the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, replacing it with a punch-hole camera – the same solution for almost all Android phones we’ve used for years now.
The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max could get a punch-hole camera instead of a notch. There might also be a big-screen in place of an iPhone 14 mini.
The line-up models are expected to look like the previous one such as the 12 series or 13 series with the same flat-edged design, but in addition to the changes in display, there will be updates to the body design.
Two leaks this week raise serious questions about Apple’s next-generation strategy and are likely to divide fans. Let’s separate ourselves.
The first leak, according to industry expert Ross Young, indicates that Apple will replace the notch on 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max with a “hole-punch + pill-shaped display” design. A circular punch hole is expected to feature a Face ID dot projector, with a pill-shaped cut that contains both a front-facing camera with attached a Face ID infrared camera.
The design has been given extra weight, who noted that the pill-shaped cut will be present on the iPhone 14 Pro. But Young also said a second punch-hole cut would be next to it to capture a selfie camera.
Surprisingly, he also claims that :
“the smaller hole will not be invisible… The two-hole concept will be unique to Apple.“
He has the perfect track record according to apple track and these display cutouts could be going to horizontal “i” (iPhone).
What might that look like?
Engineer Jeff Grossman hit the iPhone 14 Pro with a joke about a pill-shaped camera that replaced the notch. (Some reports suggest that Apple will go with this circular cut instead of their favourite circular phone makers right now).
2. Tough Titanium Alloy Chassis
The 14 models will probably look a lot like the iPhone 13, it’ll be clad in titanium alloy and available in a massive form factor that packs in even more features on it.
When we heard a titanium alloy chassis many people have questions raised themselves like :
What’s the difference between titanium alloy as compared to stainless steel?
Stainless Steel Vs Titanium Alloy
Compared to stainless steel, titanium has a relatively high hardness that makes it more resistant to scratches. It is also resistant to corrosion and most forms of oxidation. Another big advantage of this metal is that it is a very thermally conductive metal, meaning that it will not affect the performance of the iPhone’s processor when placed in hot/cold environments.
The material does have a few drawbacks, even though. Oil from fingerprints may be with ease visible on bare titanium and titanium alloy surfaces, leaving unattractive marks on client gadgets. The hardness of titanium additionally makes it tough to etch, which could make it much less attractive.
This decision might be the biggest and a welcoming change by Apple itself.
3. Front side
The front side of the iPhone 14 is going to give you a premium look and feel with some changes in design and features. The 14 Pro may get different Face ID options including an infrared scanner and There might also be a big-screen iPhone 14 Max in place of an iPhone 14 mini.
The Touch ID sensor which is missing from the iPhone 8 and unfortunately, this might not be seen in this particular series as per the leaks and reports but in the future, we can expect or able to see this feature like under the display fingerprint sensor which we can see in the most android smartphones.
iPhone 14 could get an all-screen design, according to the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. It could be a great idea to have all the line-up models with some different proportions and features but we will see.
4. Rear side and Side panels
You can also see for the Pro models with a three-lens camera and LiDAR scanner, such as the iPhone 13 Pro Max, a rear glass (with Apple logo sitting under glass) and a transparent titanium chassis, instead of stainless steel.
The popular iPhone leaker John Prosser has been said there will be no camera bump on the rear camera section, but camera features are going to integrate at the rear glass.
5. Rounded Volume Buttons
Back to the iPhone 4 which has circular diameter volume controls and we could able to see the same rounded volume controls including a mute switch with a flat design in the upcoming iPhone 14.
The apple leaker DylanDKT shared a post on Twitter that Pro models will have under-display Face ID.
6. Speaker Grills
The speaker grills design might be looks different on this perticular model and this could once again reassemble the iPhone 4’s larger individual grills than the previous iPhone 13’s multiple smaller grills which could result in greater volume.
The larger rectangular shaped grills let you achieve a bigger sound and improved clarity. Speaking of sound, these stylish speaker grills help produce an improved sound for your music. These speaker grills look good and fit in with virtually any style and will be sure to get noticed by your fans.
However, the larger grills also has some drawbacks like, the dirt and dust can be easily gets inside the speakers and it’s needs to be cleaned regularly basis or once a week otherwise you can get a low volume and less clear sound.
7. Dual eSIM/physical SIM model
In the design part of iPhone 14 and according to a recent leak Apple is believed to have removed the physical SIM card slot with the new iPhone, leaving a single eSIM slot for all of the company’s cellular offerings. However, it has not officially confirmed whether the removal of the physical SIM slot could be done for all of its models or just select ones in the future. The removal of the physical SIM slot is a good move on Apple’s part to keep its operations and services running smoothly. It also helps in reducing costs, increases efficiency and also makes it easier to handle services such as internet and wireless.
Words by the GlobalData analyst Emma Mohr-McClune, claims that :
“an eSIM-only iPhone was always a question of ‘when’, not ‘if’—but, so far, there has been insufficient consideration as to ‘how.’ “
Apple could be working on the concept of an eSIM-only iPhone but people might be not comfortable with dual eSIM especially for Indian citizens, and most probability this could be an option for an iPhone 14 series.
When it will going to be launched?
Usually, Apple launch their upcoming iPhone models in every year on WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference). The event globally will going to be streamed live on Youtube official channel and it will held on 7, June 2022. It can starts at 1PM ET / 10AM PT / 6PM BST / 11PM IST.
There will be an upgrade in the RAM size in iPhone 14?
Yes, it is expected to be increased by a 6GB RAM instead of 4GB.
Which processor will be going to used in the iPhone 14?
In every year apple uses it’s own processor which known as “Apple Bionic Chipset” and this year also it will backed by A16 bionic chipset for all upcoming the models.
What will be the price?
This time, the price is expected to be a bit higher than its predecessor because of some improvements in the design and camera. The listed below are the expected prices of iPhone 14 in indian rupee :
- iPhone 14 – Rs.79999/-
- iPhone 14 Pro – Rs.1,12,990/-
