That’s all thanks to a Mac Otakara video. As a starting point, they used 3D-printed iPhone 14 dummies that were purchased from internet retailer Alibaba. I know that seems weird, but it’s a perfect example of how even the tiniest modifications to the phone’s specifications can have a big impact on how it looks and feels.
The fundamental appearance of the dummies is consistent with the reports we’ve heard. Four gadgets are shown: two smaller, two bigger; two with two back cameras and two with three. All three of these devices are expected to be the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max, with the bigger 2-camera gadget said to be a new iPhone 14 model. All four phones, like the iPhone 13, have flat sides.
Non-Pro versions are adopting the same notch design that we’ve seen previously on the front. The Pro mock-ups shown here have no notch at all, which might be interpreted as indicating the presence of cameras hidden under the display. Rumors, on the other hand, indicate that the cameras and Face ID sensors on these devices will instead be carved out in pill or punch-hole shapes.
This video also demonstrates that the iPhone 14 may not be compatible with the existing 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro/Pro Max cases, despite employing the same dimensions as the iPhone 13 range. According to reports, Apple’s upcoming iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models have a bigger camera bump to accommodate new camera technology such as thicker lenses and a 48MP primary sensor. Additionally, there seems to be an increase in their overall thickness that prevents the cover from even reaching all four corners of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro. ‘
Screen protectors were the subject of a similar experiment by Mac Otakara’s writer. iPhone 14 models’ edges are slimmer than those of previous generations, implying that the next generation of iPhones would have thinner screens. That, ideally, doesn’t imply a decrease in resolution, but rather a phone that is easier to use with one hand because of its smaller size.
Until the iPhone 14 or 14 Pro goes on sale in September, Apple isn’t going to tell us anything about the device. Rumors concerning the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro can be found in our iPhone rumour hubs, and you can check out our iOS 16 hub to see what new features may be coming to your iPhone.
