Apple’s next iPhones might bring about the most significant changes in years, according to growing speculations about the iPhone 14. We may expect an updated design, quicker A16 Bionic processor and crisper primary camera, and USB-C port on the iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max.

Apple’s normal iPhone 14 range may also see significant changes, as the small is believed to be phased out in favour of a larger 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max.


To put it another way, it’s clear why the iPhone 14 is one of our most anticipated smartphones for 2022. These are our expectations for the iPhone 14, what we’ve heard so far, and why we expect it to be one of the most important Apple products in 2022.

iPhone 14 possible release date and price

We haven’t heard anything about the iPhone 14’s release date yet. However, based on Apple’s prior iPhone launches, we may predict the iPhone 14 to be unveiled in September 2022.

iPhone 14 might be unveiled on September 13 and released 10 days later on September 22, according to Apple’s prior trends, however this is just conjecture. For additional information, check out our iPhone 14 release date prediction page.


Engineering validation testing (EVTs) are taking place on the iPhone 14, which means that the design has been finalised since it was put into trial production in February. The results of these testing will reveal if the new devices meet Apple’s stringent specifications.

As far as the price is concerned, it’s impossible to forecast. Nonetheless, we expect the iPhone 14 will be priced in line with the iPhone 13’s starting price of $799 for the iPhone 13 and $999 for the iPhone 13 Pro. The iPhone 14 Max, which has a 6.7-inch screen, is expected to cost $899. However, there may not be an iPhone 14 small at all.

From there, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max might cost up to $1,099 each.


However, LeaksApplePro, a leaker with a decent track record, claims that the prices of three of the four iPhone 14 variants are likely to go up.

Both the basic iPhone 14 and the larger iPhone 14 Max are likely to remain priced $799 and $899, respectively. iPhone 14 Pro may cost $1,099 compared to the $999 iPhone 13 Pro, which is $100 more expensive. The price of the iPhone 14 Pro Max is expected to rise to $1,199. With such a large jump in price, the next-generation iPhone 14’s top end will be beyond of reach for most people.

We’ve compiled a list of reasons why you should purchase the iPhone 13 instead of the iPhone 14 if you’re undecided.

And don’t forget to check out our first impressions of the iPhone 14 versus iPhone 14 Pro.

iPhone 14 Max replacing iPhone 14 mini

Apple issued an iPhone 13 tiny along with the other iPhone 13 models last autumn, despite reports that the iPhone 12 mini had dismal sales. If Apple does as stated and reshuffles the iPhone 14 line for 2022, the mini may as well be history. With the 6.1-inch iPhone 14, a bigger Plus or Max model might be introduced. As a result, there will be two standard-sized phones and two iPhone 14 versions with bigger screens.

There is also evidence that the iPhone 14 Max will replace the small phone, with merely a larger display and without any of the more expensive premium capabilities, according to leaker Jon Prosser. A bigger, more cheap iPhone may be exactly the thing for die-hard iPhone users, given the current trend towards larger smartphones.


According to yet another anonymous source, there will be two different iPhone 14 models: the normal and the Max. The predicted iPhone 14 Max is a major changer for Apple, and it should make Apple’s rivals anxious, according to our perspective.

In addition to the iPhone 13 mini’s demise, the iPhone 14 is slated to see a slew of new features. All of the most significant changes between the iPhone 13 and 14 have been detailed in our side-by-by-side comparison.

There is a good chance that Apple will remove the iPhone 11 from its phone range after the iPhone 14’s release. Both the iPhone 13 small and the iPhone 12 mini are still up in the air.


The iPhone 14’s design

It’ll appear like an iPhone 12 mated with an iPhone 4, according to Jon Prosser’s video on Front Page Tech’s website. There might also be a muted button and a collection of circular volume buttons, like those on the iPhone 4, on the corners.

The iPhone 14’s sides are said to be constructed of titanium, making it harder and more durable than prior iPhones, while the back is said to be made of glass with a satin-like surface.

According to Ming-Chi Kuo’s allegation that a larger module is required to house a 48MP camera on the iPhone 14 Pro, it doesn’t seem probable that the normal iPhone 14 will have a pair of cameras flush with its back panel.


The display notch may be dead by the time the iPhone 14 comes out, according to certain speculations. It seems that only the iPhone 14 Pro will have no notch, using a single circular camera cutout in conjunction with a pill-shaped cutout next to it to house the Face ID sensors. However, this is still a long way off. Additionally, smaller bezels may have been used, giving the illusion of an even bigger screen.

In what looks to be a leaked supply chain shot, all four iPhone 14 models’ display panels are clearly seen. However, the notch on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro max seems to have been abolished in favour of a mix of a pill-shaped cutout and what looks to be an elongated punch-hole camera or sensor.

MySmartPrice has also received CAD renderings of the non-Pro version of the iPhone 14. It’s reasonable to believe that Apple’s 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max will follow suit with the same design cues.


You can see from these images that the iPhone 13 we have presently doesn’t appear all that different. The notch is even smaller, and the cameras on the back are stacked diagonally. As a result, we’re left wondering what the iPhone 14 will really look like.

Apple’s rumoured iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max schematics were leaked by well-known leaker Max Weinbach. Both depict a phone that is 0.2 millimetres thicker and has a greater camera hump. The schematics suggest that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be similar in height and breadth to their predecessors, which is surprising given how much larger they are. The new hole-punch/pill-shaped cuts may also be seen in these schematics.

A fresh leak seems to have disclosed a slew of information on the iPhone 14 Pro Max, Apple’s biggest next-generation flagship phone. While it’s unclear exactly what Apple will do to make the bigger iPhone slimmer and more slimline, it’s safe to assume that the company will do anything it can to preserve the sensor technology required for reliable and secure Face ID.


Macotakara, a Japanese blog, has uploaded a video showing mock-ups of the iPhone 14 from the Chinese site Alibaba. The bigger camera module on the Pro versions necessitates different covers for those phones, as well as the distinctions between the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro.

In terms of colour choices, a source claims that the present blue will be replaced with a lighter sky blue and a new purple option will be included. As a result, it’s impossible to tell how trustworthy that leak is.

The retina display of the iPhone 14

With a 6.1-inch screen for the normal iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro, and a 6.7-inch screen for the iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max, we may anticipate a reshuffle in the iPhone 14 lineup. So there’s no more 5.4-inch tiny.


If Shadow Leaks is to be believed, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will sport 6.68-inch screens (rounded up to 6.1 inches) (rounded up to 6.7 inches). Both the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro Max have this identical display.

I hope to see all iPhone 14 models having a 120Hz refresh rate display, either utilising Apple LTPO panel or an advancement of that display technology, given that the 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max already have it.

It has been suggested that Apple’s iPhone 14 Max, which might also be referred to as the iPhone 14 Plus, would include a 120Hz refresh rate screen. However, it’s not obvious whether the regular iPhone 14 will have a refresh rate of 60Hz or if it will be upgraded to a higher refresh rate.


According to a rumour from The Elec, at least one iPhone 14 model will include an LTPS display, indicating that the 60Hz screen may remain. According to further supply chain rumours, the basic iPhone 14 may be missing a fast-refreshing display.

The iPhone 14 and 14 Max might offer 90Hz refresh rates, according to yet another rumour that’s a little different. Even if the iPhone 13 and 13 mini have quicker screens, this wouldn’t be a threat to the Pro model’s.

Given that an always-on display was rumoured for the iPhone 13 but never found its way into the iPhone 14, this seems like a sensible addition to the iPhone 14.


iPhone 14 Touch ID

For the iPhone 14, the reintroduction of Touch ID is one of the most major updates. Apple’s iPhone 14 is expected to include a fingerprint sensor incorporated under its display, much like those seen on some of the top Android phones.

There’s still a lot of debate about how plausible this is, however. A few years down the road, Ming Chi-Kuo thinks there won’t be an iPhone with Touch ID or Face ID. This would have been a huge disappointment, since it would have been really useful during these mask-wearing occasions.

Face ID can now detect a real user even when they are wearing a mask, according to iOS 15.4 from Apple. Since it works so effectively, it’s possible that Apple has eliminated the requirement for fingerprint biometrics altogether.


iPhone 14 cameras

As the iPhone 14 camera rumours continue to spread, they’re becoming more and more intriguing. One Apple expert Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the iPhone 14 Pro versions would have a 48MP primary sensor, a significant improvement above the 12MP camera in the iPhone 13. Research firm TrendForce, based in Taiwan, confirms that Apple cares about the quality of its primary camera, at least in the company’s Pro devices.

On the contrary, a well-known Apple insider predicts that only the high-end iPhone 14 Pro versions would include a 48MP camera.

A larger primary sensor will be welcomed, regardless of how precise it turns out to be. A better telephoto lens is what we’re looking forwards to the most, since the iPhone currently falls behind other high-end smartphones. The Galaxy S21 Ultra’s 10x optical zoom secondary camera is a great idea, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see Apple follow suit.

Periscope-style zoom cameras are being developed by Apple and might be used in the iPhone 14, or at least its Pro variants. Ming-Chi Kuo, on the other hand, now claims that the iPhone 15 won’t include a periscope camera until 2023.

It’s time for another iPhone 14 camera hint from Kuo, this time for the front camera. Autofocus and a larger aperture (f/1.9 vs. f/2.2 on the current iPhone) are expected for the iPhone 14’s front camera. FaceTime conversations should become sharper with autofocus, while low-light selfies should get better with the larger aperture. Not only the iPhone 14 Pro models would benefit from the new front-facing camera features.

Battery life and charging capabilities of the iPhone 14

As of this writing, we’ve only received fragments of information on the rumoured iPhone 14 specifications. We believe that Apple will create an A-series processor for the iPhone in 2022. Apple’s rumoured A16 CPU is expected to give a significant performance gain over the A15 Bionic that is expected to power the iPhone 13.


An even smaller and more efficient processor, the 4nm A15 Bionic, is expected in the iPhone 14, according to reports from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC). Apple’s rumoured iPhone 14 might remain with a 5nm technology because of a recent revelation that TSMC is experiencing difficulties creating the smaller processors. If this is the case, it will be the first time that an IPhone has gone three years with the same-sized system-on-chip in place.

According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the new A16 Bionic processor may only be given to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The current A15 Bionic processor will be used in the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max. That would be a huge shock, but the A15 is expected to stay the fastest smartphone processor for a while longer still..

It has been alleged that the iPhone 14 would be powered by an A15 Bionic rather than a newer version of the A14 processor “It’s possible that the A15 may be used in the non-professional iPhones later this year. Although Apple wants to call it the A16 processor, it is not yet known what the name will be.”


More mystery surrounds the iPhone 14, as a new rumour, citing insiders, claims that the device will be powered by the same A15 Bionic technology as the iPhone 13 Pro models released earlier this year. According to teardowns, the processor has 6GB of RAM, whereas the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini have 4GB of RAM. So it would be an improvement, but not the one we were expecting; proceed with caution.

Check out our thoughts on what an A16 Bionic processor in an iPhone 14 may mean to you, as analysts weigh in on the advantages and disadvantages of the technology.

According to Kuo, all four iPhone 14 models will feature 6GB of RAM, up from 4GB on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 small, which is a significant increase. According to rumours, the basic versions will feature LPDDR 4X RAM, while the Pro variants will supposedly have faster and more efficient LPDDR 5 RAM.


Observer Jeff Pu has also predicted that all four iPhone 14 versions would have a total of 6GB RAM.

As far as the storage choices go, we’d anticipate Apple to go with the 128GB and above for the iPhone 13 Pro variants.

An on-board storage capacity of 2TB has been speculated for the iPhone 14. We doubt an iPhone will have the largest capacity on a smartphone to date, given that no Samsung phone provides this and they’ve historically been liberal with storage.


Analyst Jeff Pu claims that the iPhone 14 and 14 Max will have 64GB of storage, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max would have a massive 256GB. The second option is plausible, but the first is not, since the iPhone 13’s capacity would be cut in half.

According to an analyst at GlobalDate, Apple may also produce an iPhone 14 with an eSIM-only model. Users who require dual-SIM capabilities, such as businesspeople and international tourists, will see a boost in iPhone sales as a result of the change.

iPhone 14 5G and satellite connectivity

Following Apple’s purchase of Intel’s modem division, it’s feasible that the iPhone 14 may have an Apple-made 5G modem. Apple would have greater control over 5G performance and battery life if this were to happen.


Reports claim Apple is working on 5G chips for the iPhones, which might reduce battery usage while yet retaining high performance. It has been reported that TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) has secured Apple’s 5G chip orders for its future iPhone 14 series, according to a recent report from Taiwan’s Economic Daily News.

As a consequence of the 6nm manufacturing technique, the supplier could create a chip that is physically smaller, thereby reducing power consumption without losing performance, according to the claims.

Even while the 5G chip is tiny, it might also allow Apple to fit a bigger battery inside the device, which would be a bonus. As a result, the battery life of the phone might be improved by using the chip mentioned in this article.

Qualcomm unveiled its new X70 modem at MWC 2022, which is a 5G modem. However, the new technology, which is projected to be a significant upgrade over the current-generation X65 modem, will not be included in the iPhone 14, which is scheduled for delivery in late 2022.

An old iPhone 13 rumour has resurfaced, claiming that the iPhone will be able to connect to satellite networks so that users may send text messages to emergency services when cellular networks aren’t accessible. iPhone 14 versions may be equipped with satellite communication in order to improve the phone’s emergency capabilities, according to rumours.

iPhone 14 USB-C

There have been rumblings about the iPhone 14 ditching the Lightning connector in favour of USB-C for many generations, but now it seems that this is actually going to happen. According to many leaks, USB-C is expected to be included in both the iPhone 14 Pro and the ordinary iPhone 14.


The fact that some of us even believe that USB-C is a must-have feature for the iPhone 14 and that it’s pretty much one thing that the iPhone 14 Pro has to correct. We’d love to see USB-C take over. USB-C might be forced on Apple by the EU’s plans to make it the standard charging interface for portable devices.

A fresh report from LeaksApplePro says, however, that the iPhone 14 Pro will not ship with USB-C. The leaker, on the other hand, anticipates Apple to continue with Lightning, but to use a USB 3.0-like data transfer speed improvement for the next iteration.

iPhone 14: Software

The iPhone 14 is expected to debut in the autumn with a new version of Apple’s iOS software if the company follows its usual pattern. It is almost a certainty that iOS 16 will be the next major release of the operating system (unless Apple ditches numbers like it did with macOS).


We haven’t heard anything about Apple’s iOS 16 software upgrades until the company’s annual developer conference, which takes place in June. Apple’s software development team is already very busy on iOS 15.2, which is set to arrive in December and deliver a slew of improvements to the iPhone.

Apple’s iPhone 14 compared. the newer, more powerful iPhone 14 Pro

The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max seem to be in a league of their own, based on the rumour mill so far. As a result, only the pros will be able to provide telephoto zooms once again. Because the upcoming iPhone 14 Pros are said to include in-display Touch ID, which would remove the notch and replace it with a punch hole display.

(Image credit: Ian Zelbo | Front Page Tech)

In addition, the 48MP primary camera on the iPhone 14 Pro is believed to be substantially crisper than the 12MP camera on the standard iPhone 14. This might mean that only the iPhone 14 Pros will have USB-C connection rather than Lightning. See our iPhone 14 versus iPhone 14 Pro comparison to learn more about the alleged changes between the two models.


Analyst Jeff Pu, on the other hand, predicts that Apple will offer a 120Hz display on all four iPhone 14 models this time around, as well as 6GB of RAM on each.

What we’d want to see in the iPhone 14

For Apple’s upcoming autumn lineup, we’ve prioritised the most important rumoured features for the next-generation iPhone 14. As for our expectations for the iPhone 14, here are a few things we’re expecting to see. Here’s what the iPhone SE tells us about the iPhone 14 now that it’s out:

iPhone 14 renders by Proser hint to a new design for the device. However, there hasn’t been a significant shift in Apple’s design style. Any though Apple’s phones are among of the most attractive, we’d want to see whether the company can go even farther in terms of design with the iPhone 14.

(Image credit: Ian Zelbo | Front Page Tech)

If the speculations are correct, the iPhone 14 might have a notch-free display, and we hope so. Under-display cameras would be welcome as long as they didn’t interfere with image or face-recognition capability.

Even if the iPhone 14 doesn’t include an in-display fingerprint sensor, we believe that Apple will reintroduce Touch ID. A Touch ID sensor, similar to the one on the iPad Air, might be built inside the side-mounted power button.

Although Apple has always been a powerhouse, we’d like to see Apple go a little more into AI with its A-series CPUs, like the Tensor chip in the Google Pixel 6. To compete with the Google Assistant, we’ll need an even better Siri that’s quicker to respond and more capable of delivering the information iPhone 14 consumers want when they want it.


The iPhone 13 Pro Max has one of the greatest camera phones on the market, but we’d want to see Apple continue to improve its camera technology and hardware. Pro Max has a little advantage in comparison to Google Pixel 6 and Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra in terms of performance. We hope that Apple’s next-generation phones will have cameras and phone photography experiences that outperform those offered by Android’s competitors. Getting up to speed on the zooming front would also be beneficial.
