Apple is expected to release the iPhone 14 in September of this year. This new phone is rumored to have several new features, from updated hardware to new color options. There has been much speculation about what other features will be included in the iPhone 14, but nothing has been confirmed so far. This article will look at some of the most popular rumors and speculations about the upcoming phone. So while you wait for its release, read on to find out what might be coming to the iPhone 14.
New Color Options
The new iPhone 14 is rumored to have several new color options, including a sleek purple shade. The purple shade is said to be darker than the current rose gold option and would offer a nice contrast against the black or white front bezels. This would be a welcome addition for many people who have been wanting more color options for their iPhones.
However, if you like the original white and black options, don’t worry. Those are said to be sticking around and some of the newer additions that came with the iPhone 13, like the alpine green and green.
Slightly Different Size Options
According to the rumors, Apple is expecting 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, with the giant 6.7-inch iPhone replacing the mini model. While the stand and pro versions are expected to be the same as the iPhone 13, the mini and Max versions will be different.
If there is no so-called iPhone 14 mini in 2022, the iPhone SE will reclaim its title as the tiniest iPhone with a 4.7-inch display. The iPhone SE has a screen 5.85 inches in size, which is somewhat larger than the 5.4-inch mini version due to thicker bezels and a Touch ID home button. The iPhone SE only has a single-lens rear camera, whereas the iPhone 12 mini features an improved OLED display. So for those who are a fan of the smaller phones, there is no good news here, but the Max and Pro Max might be worth the wait.
According to a leaked document, the iPhone 14 Pro versions will include a 48MP primary sensor, compared to the 12MP camera on the iPhone 13. Another source, which corroborates the 48MP main camera report, claims that megapixels are once again important to Apple, at least when it comes to its Pro phones. But sadly, according to rumors, the regular iPhone 14 models will retain their 12MP cameras, with just the Pro versions expected to upgrade to a 48MP primary camera.
Whatever turns out to be correct, a greater main sensor will be appreciated. Many consumers are looking for a telephoto lens that is better than the iPhone’s current one. If Apple takes influence from the Galaxy S21 Ultra and adds a secondary telephoto lens with 10x optical zoom, it would be a hit with many customers.
A final iPhone 14 camera tip is that the front camera will have autofocus. According to reports, the iPhone 14’s front camera will include a wider aperture (f/1.9 vs. f/2.2 on the current iPhone). Thanks to the new hardware, FaceTime talks should be clearer, and the wider aperture will aid low-light selfies. The front camera improvements will apply to all iPhone 14 models, not just the Pro versions.
According to some of the leaks, the iPhone 14 will have flat edges. However, those edges may include a mute button and a set of rounded buttons for volume central, reminiscent of the iPhone 4. The iPhone 14 will supposedly have a titanium frame on its sides and a glass back, making it stronger and sturdier than the previous iPhones.
The display notch is widely expected to be eliminated with the iPhone 14. It may have reduced bezels, making the display look even bigger. However, it appears as though only the iPhone 14 Pro will be notch-free, utilizing a single circular camera cutout and a pill-shaped cut hole adjacent to it to house Face ID sensors.
Touch ID And Face ID
The return of Touch ID would be one of the most significant changes for the iPhone 14 over its predecessors. It has been suggested that the fingerprint reader may be incorporated into a phone’s power button rather than being placed under the iPhone 14’s display, much like many fingerprint sensors on Android phones. But the jury is still out on whether or not this will happen.
The news that Apple is releasing an updated Face ID setup for its iPhone 13 successors comes as no surprise, but it will only work on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The iPhone 14 will include a pill-shaped front-facing camera with all TouchID and FaceID sensors hidden beneath the screen. However, this is not a groundbreaking or original idea; it’s how Android phones have been doing it for years. Apple has just utilized the notch well for years. The same notch will be used by the more affordable iPhone 14.
Battery Life Changes
The iPhone 14 series is expected to get several substantial improvements, and it now appears that longer battery life is on the way. According to reports, Apple is developing a new 5G chip for the next iPhone that would allow it to consume less energy while still providing good performance. The supplier is expected to use the 6nm manufacturing technique, which may help it produce chips that are physically smaller and require less power without sacrificing performance.
Improved charging speed will also benefit from a smaller size 5G chip. Apple may be able to fit a larger battery into the iPhone 14 due to this new technology. A minor 5G chip would also allow Apple to install a bigger battery. As a result of improved power efficiency, the mentioned chip could improve the phone’s battery life by up to four hours.
Release Date And Price
The release date for the iPhone 14 is still unknown, but It is anticipated that Apple will debut the iPhone 14 series on September 6 or September 13, 2022, and will have it out for sale on September 16 or September 23, 2022. That’s due to the company’s typical timeframes, which it follows annually: Apple releases its new phones on the first or second Tuesday of September. They are available for purchase roughly ten days later, on Friday.
As far as the price goes, the iPhone 14 models are expected to be more expensive than previous models. The anticipated price hike is due to many reasons, including increasing component costs and the display in particular, as well as overall cost inflation across the supply chain.
So Whats New With iPhone 14?
The iPhone 14 is expected to be a pretty big update from Apple. Some of the most significant changes include the return of Touch ID, longer battery life, a new Face ID set up, and reduced bezels. The release date is still unknown, but it is anticipated that Apple will debut the iPhone 14 series on September 2022. The price is also expected to be more expensive than previous models. However, with all the new changes and improvements, the iPhone 14 is still anticipated to be a popular choice among Apple users.
