The iPhone 14 is due to be released next September. Yes Manzana maintains the same schedule of new product announcements for the fall, the event will occur on September 12 or 13. After the pilot test of the WWDC 2022we can practically confirm that specialized press, communicators, bloggers Y youtubers will be present at the Apple Park, the company’s headquarters. There will be a first level event where you can see the key note, inside of the Steve Jobs Theaterin Cupertino.
Dozens of rumors about the iPhone 14 have been making the rounds in recent weeks and months, but there are some new functions and features that have been reported by so many people with sources inside the company or on the production lines, that we might as well call them fact. These are the four most important everything we know so far about the future Apple smartphone.
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro will have different chips
There are several possible reasons: the component crisis we are going through or the rumored internal changes in the R&D team. Perhaps a mix of both. But it is a fact that the chips designed by Apple for the iPhone 14 are already extremely powerful, so much so that perhaps such huge generational leaps from year to year are no longer necessary.
Whatever the reason, this will be the first time that the Pro line iPhones will be more powerful than the normal ones. The iPhone 14 Pro will have the future A16 Bionicwhile the regular iPhone 14 will keep the A15 Bionic that are present in all iPhone 13.
It is possible that when the new iPhone 14s are introduced, the normal versions will have an improved A15 Bionic chip, which could be called A15X Bionic. They could also use the slightly powerful version of the chip that is in the iPhone 13 Pro.
48-megapixel camera and a new front-facing “selfie camera”
Dozens of rumors suggest that the iPhone 14 Pro will have a significant improvement in the cameras, both the main ones and the front ones. They would incorporate a new 48-megapixel sensor to be able to capture more data in photos and video. The iPhone 14 would keep the 12-megapixel sensor.
That said, although the iPhone 14 Pro will have the new 48-megapixel sensor, the resulting images would still be 12-megapixel. It will be an interesting technique to obtain a lot more information and light, but later, by means of a rescaling technique, to provide much more quality to the final photos and videos.
The technique is not new, in fact it is used in some high-end Android smartphones. This results in images with less noise and greater detail. The pixel size is increased from 1.7um to 2.5um.
Regular iPhone 14s will also have larger pixels, going from 1.7um to 2um. So, although the sensor will be 12 megapixels, it will definitely be of better quality.
It is also practically confirmed that the iPhone 14 will be capable of recording video in 8K quality. Not just on the Pro models, on all of them. This may give smartphones the ability to offer portrait mode in 4K and not just 1080p.
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro will have different designs
Another of the changes that we will see for the first time in the new iPhone range is a different design between the regular and Pro models.
Normal ones will have notchas we have seen in Apple smartphones from iPhone X to iPhone 13. Pro versions would use a circle and lozenge design integrated into the screen.
The difference between models is probably related to the cost of making screens like this. Reserving it only for the Pro models that have a higher price.
Goodbye iPhone mini, welcome iPhone 14 Max
It seems that Apple will say goodbye to the mini version of its iPhone for this new generation, due to low sales of the iPhone 13 mini. For this year the idea is to go in exactly the opposite direction.
According to rumors that could well be already confirmed, the regular iPhone 14 will be available in versions of 6.1 – like the current model of the iPhone 13. But a new 6.7-inch size will also arrive, the same as the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will likely offer slightly larger screen sizes to accommodate the new front-facing camera and sensor design.
