It appears that the enormous Pro camera bumps may be seen.
Using Weibo (via MacRumors), we can see that these cases appear to confirm the claim that Apple is phasing out the tiny iPhones and replace them with a non-Pro Max variant. In the image below, we can see two larger cases, one for a 6.7-inch phone and another for a 6.1-inch phone, as well as two smaller ones (assuming Apple keeps the same screen sizes that we have with the iPhone 13 series).
However, we think there’s something even more appealing about this. You can see the differences in the camera module openings if you look closely at the two case sizes. Even though the cases for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max don’t look all that different from the cases for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, we believe that the cases for what we believe to be the Pro versions have large camera cutouts.
It doesn’t appear like Apple will be changing its signature camera bump design on the iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max if these cases are any indication. Because the iPhone 14 Pro case (third from the left) has a smaller footprint than the iPhone 14 Max, we think the cutout looks exceptionally big.
Apple is rumoured to be working on a 48MP wide-angle primary sensor update for the Pro cameras this year. The periscope zoom telephoto camera on the iPhone 14 Pro was previously expected, but Apple expert Ming-Chi Kuo now says such improvement will not occur until 2023. All in all, you should expect a huge camera module this year.
As in prior years, we expect Apple to unveil the iPhone 14 in September. In the months to come, we may expect to see additional leaks and rumours. Our iPhone 14 hub and iPhone 14 Pro hub are always up to date with the latest news.
