iPhone 14 Pro leaks and rumours — what we know


This is all we know so far about the iPhone 14 Pro.

iPhone 14 Pro, Apple’s next iPhone, is expected to represent a major departure from the iPhone 13 Pro in terms of appearance. Everything from the demise of the notch to Touch ID’s reappearance has been speculated about so far in the rumour mills.

Even if the iPhone 13 Pro is excellent, it does not represent a significant advancement over the model it replaces. In general, the iPhone hasn’t made much progress since the iPhone 11 Pro, which was released in 2018.


There’s no doubt that Apple will have to up its game to compete with the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra and the Google Pixel 6 Pro. Fortunately, if recent leaks and speculations are to be believed, Apple’s upcoming Pro model may accomplish exactly that.

So far, here’s what we know and what we want to see from the iPhone 14 Pro.

Release date and cost rumours for the iPhone 14 Pro

Naturally, Apple is exceedingly secretive when it comes to the release dates and prices of its next iPhones. However, based on prior introductions, we’d think September is a fair bet for the iPhone 14 range.

Rumors claim that the iPhone 14 range has begun trial production, according to the most recent reports. That’s a crucial phase in the manufacturing process of the smartphone. The goal is to complete a device’s design, calibrate testing equipment for quality assurance, and detect any manufacturing process concerns that may arise.

The iPhone 14 Pro’s starting price is expected to be the same as its predecessor’s, at $999. Some high-end smartphones, like Samsung’s Galaxy S22, already start at $799, but Apple is unlikely to lower its high-end smartphone prices (particularly with the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max slated to be priced at $699 and $799, respectively). There’s a case to be made that $999 is a reasonable price for a high-end phone with well crafted software and three really good cameras.

This is a look at the iPhone 14 Pro

The rumoured leaks from Jon Prosser have inspired a series of renderings that seem to indicate significant modifications to the next iPhone 14 Pro.


There will be a three-camera setup as we saw on the Galaxy S22 Ultra, but the flat edges that have been seen on the iPhone 13 series have been kept, much like on the Galaxy S22.

In an homage to the iPhone 4, the volume controls can be seen in the images. Another rumour is that the iPhone 14 Pro might be made of titanium, making it both stronger and perhaps lighter than the iPhone 13.

Additionally, a punch-hole selfie camera has been suggested as an alternative to the iconic notch on the display. Display expert Ross Young, on the other hand, predicts that Apple will include both a pill-shaped cutout and a punch hole for Face ID.


One possible design for the iPhone 14 Pro is seen below, according to a Weibo source. As for the notch, we aren’t convinced this is an upgrade.

Display Supply Chain Consultants, a young and analytical organisation, has once again pounded home the concept of a dual-camera iPhone 14 Pro. It will be another year before the ordinary iPhone gets a notch-less display, which adds to the allure of turning pro on the next iPhone.

Rumors have claimed that the iPhone 14 will include a USB-C connector for the first time, which makes sense as many of Apple’s gadgets currently have USB-C connectivity.


Earlier this year, there were rumblings that Touch ID would make a comeback as an in-screen fingerprint scanner. But with iOS 15.4 introducing the option to unlock your phone with a face mask and one source suggesting that Touch ID is gone for the iPhone 14, we strongly doubt this functionality will be given.

Not much is known about colour possibilities for the iPhone 14 Pro other than black and white; a light peach; and a dark green; the latter of which looks fine in a render but must be taken with a grain of salt.

Display of the iPhone 14 Professional

In terms of visual performance, the 120Hz dynamic refresh rate display on the iPhone 13 Pro is a significant improvement. With the usage of an LTPO panel, the screen could swing from a 120Hz refresh rate to as low as 10Hz, which saved battery life.


This isn’t likely to change with the iPhone 13 Pro, at least not based on the speculations we’ve heard so far. However, a newer LTPO screen, like the one in the OnePlus 10 Pro, may be able to enhance power efficiency, as demonstrated in the phone.

The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to have a 6.1-inch display, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max is expected to have a 6.7-inch display.

Cameras on the iPhone 14 Pro

Keep your expectations in check for the amount of cameras on the iPhone 14 Pro, which is expected to include a primary, ultrawide, and telephoto camera array. If you’ve seen Apple devices in our best camera phone rankings, it’s not a negative thing.


Apple has utilised 12MP cameras for years, but a single source suggests that the iPhone 14 Pro will have a 48MP primary camera. When it comes to processing light and details, having more megapixels to work with would offer the iPhone 14 Pro greater flexibility. We may have reached a point where the number of megapixels matters once again to Apple’s computational photography.

According to a fresh report from China, the iPhone 14 Pro will not include a 48MP primary sensor. This year’s Pro models, according to Weibo user It’s Fat, will employ the same IMX703 12MP camera as the iPhone 13 Pro, with a 1/1.67-inch sensor and 1.9-micron pixels. Of course, as with any rumour or “leak,” we urge you to proceed with care.

We’d be amazed if the ultrawide camera didn’t get a boost in terms of field of vision and a reduction in edge distortion.


Apple has patented a periscope-style zoom camera, which suggests that the telephoto camera might receive a zoom bump in the future. The iPhone 14 Pro would be the most likely candidate to have this new function, if it were to appear at all. If you’re still confused, Apple oracle Ming-Chi Kuo thinks Apple hasn’t yet developed a periscope camera for the iPhone 15.

A front-facing camera upgrade has not been announced. Software improvements to improve portrait and low-light photographs are expected.

For the iPhone 14 Pro’s specifications and battery life

The iPhone 14 Pro’s specifications haven’t been leaked yet, but it’s safe to assume that any new model will feature an upgraded processor, as is the case with every new iPhone.


After the A15 Bionic, we may anticipate an A16 Bionic chip, which will have better overall performance. The manufacturing node for this device is projected to be reduced from 5nm to 4nm. It’s also possible that Apple may release a 5G modem in the near future.

For the most part, the A15 Bionic CPU, graphics, and neural processing speed will be much improved on the iPhone 14 Pro. Although it’s unclear how much of a difference this will make to the typical user, the iPhone 14 Pro isn’t going to have any problems handling any work.

Oddly, only the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max have been expected to get the A16 Bionic, according to Kuo, who believes the iPhone 14 will remain with the A15 processor. Apple has never done this before, since new iPhones have always come with improved silicon. Apple’s supply chain may have been hampered by the two-year chip scarcity, but this is only conjecture at this point.


However, the plot has thickened even more, with a fresh rumour from insider sources claiming that the iPhone 14 would employ the same version of the A15 Bionic processor as the iPhone 13 Pro models from this year. According to teardowns, the processor has 6GB of RAM, whereas the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini have 4GB of RAM. As a result, the iPhone 14 Pro has an edge over the normal model since it offers an update of sorts, but not a complete processor upgrade.

The iPhone 14 Pro, according to a new leak, would include 8GB of RAM. Increasing the internal RAM of the iPhone 14 Pro might turn it into a real powerhouse, especially given Apple’s efficiency strategy, which has allowed it to perform more with less RAM than devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Even if you don’t think your existing iPhone is sluggish, adding an additional GB of RAM can be considered excessive. Analyst Jeff Pu, on the other hand, thinks that all four iPhone 14 versions will include 6GB of RAM.


The iPhone 14 Pro’s capacity is expected to increase to at least 1 terabyte, although there are no concrete rumours at this time.

There have been no speculations about the battery capacity or the battery’s dimensions. In our battery test, in which we repeatedly push the phone to refresh web pages over a cellular connection until it dies, we’re optimistic that the iPhone 14 Pro will equal or even beat the 11 hours and 42 minutes the iPhone 13 Pro managed. We’d anticipate the iPhone 14 Pro Max to have the same or greater battery life as Apple continues to improve the efficiency of its chips and phones.

A new 5G modem chip is expected to be included in the iPhone 14 Pro when it launches later this year. You may expect it to use less power and have more space for battery expansion because of its compact form factor. That means that the iPhone 13’s already amazing battery life may be boosted even more.


Qualcomm’s new 5G chip, the Snapdragon X70, may not be able to benefit from the iPhone 14 Pro’s advancements. The modem system will be able to use artificial intelligence to optimise a phone’s antenna and better manage 5G beams going to and from a 5G phone with the help of the chip’s first-ever 5G AI processor. Qualcomm estimates that mmWave-based 5G networks, such as those in stadiums and arenas, would benefit most from AI, although AI can also assist control sub-6GHz 5G signals.

The future of the iPhone 14 Pro is bright

For many people, the iPhone 14 Pro is the phone they’ve been waiting for, as the Pro models are tipped to offer a significant upgrade over previous generations of iPhones. Even while it won’t seem completely different from the iPhone 13 and 12 when it arrives, we believe this next iPhone generation will offer a design language and features that will influence future iPhone models. And now that the iPhone SE (2022) has been released, here’s what the iPhone SE tells us about the iPhone 14, which was released in 2012.

The absence of a notch, Touch ID, an increase in the primary camera’s megapixel count, and a USB-C connector all have the potential to fundamentally alter the iPhone. And that, in turn, would serve as a model for other smartphones hoping to make it into our list of the best phones.
