It’s clear that the tiny is no more.
The absence of an iPhone 14 small has long been expected, as Apple is said to be simplifying its lineup in response to weak sales. Rumors have long speculated that the iPhone 14 would only be available in two sizes, 6.1-inches and 6.7-inches, depending on whether you want a regular model or an upgraded Pro model.
For the iPhone 14’s September debut, it seems that third-party case manufacturers have been given design moulds from Weibo, the Chinese social networking site, so that they may produce accessories in time.
However, for our purposes, it illustrates all you need to know about the general appearance of the phone, with the Pro model keeping three camera lenses in a triangle shape and the standard handset making do with only two.
The raw schematics of the handsets released by Weibo user Cosmic Ultra Machine, which reveal much the same thing, serve as more support for this claim.
The front of the phone, where we’ve been waiting for the long-awaited death of the notch, isn’t seen in any of these images.
Sadly, the iPhone mini has passed on.
Anyone who expected an iPhone 14 small hasn’t been paying attention to the poor sales numbers.
It received excellent reviews and is generally considered to be the greatest compact phone available, but many potential purchasers chose the less priced iPhone SE rather than the more expensive iPhone 13 or went all out and purchased an iPhone Pro. Despite the iPhone 13 mini’s poor sales numbers, it was said that Apple continued to produce the device because the corporation was too far along in the design process to abandon it.
If, as many experts think, the market has really determined that larger is better, this may come as a disappointment to individuals with little hands or small pockets.
Until now, the only way to get an iPhone with a large screen on iOS was to shell out $1,099 or more for the iPhone 13 Pro Max. If the anticipated $899 price tag for the iPhone 14 Max is accurate, Samsung and Google might be in for a real headache.
iPhone 14 vs iPhone 14 Pro
Without the huge screen being exclusive to the Pro, Apple risks losing the ability to upsell, but it looks the firm has plenty of distinctions planned. According to one speculation, only the iPhone 14 Pro models will get the new A16 CPU, while the rest of the iPhone 14 line-up will continue to use the A15 chip that powered last year’s models.
According to reports, the iPhone 14 Pro series will also include the ability to record 8K video, as well as USB-C charging. It’s also said that the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max would have a punch hole and a pill-shaped cutout instead of the notch, which will let you to view more of the screen.
If the speculated iPhone 14 costs are to be believed, you’ll have to pay an extra $100 for the Pro model and an extra $200 for the Pro Max model if you decide to go the Pro route.
