New CAD images purporting to show the design of the iPhone 14 Pro show that the major iPhone makeover originally anticipated may not be taking place.
A publication renowned for releasing product designs before they’re released, although not without a few misses, is the source of the renderings. Before the announcement of the new Apple Watch Series 7, a widely circulated but the incorrect design was leaked by the same publication.
From now on:
With the help of insiders in the business, 91mobiles has obtained 3D CAD renderings of the next iPhone 14 Pro. All of the design elements of the forthcoming pro iPhone have been shown in the renders that have been leaked. First and foremost, iPhone 14 Pro CAD renderings confirm the removal of the bathtub notch. A pill-shaped hole-punch cutout and a little circular cutout will be installed in its stead. This is where the Face ID and selfie cameras will be housed. Front bezels are symmetrical, with the speaker grille located at the top bezel. This enhances the device’s appearance considerably. The power button is on the right, while the volume rocker, SIM tray area, and change slider are located on the left.
To say that the leaked design does not match past leaks from Jon Proser and Mark Gurman would be an understatement; both are well-known for leaking Apple designs before they go on sale to the public. This year’s iPhone 14 will have a flat back, Prosser said in September, along with changes to its volume buttons and an additional circular hole on the front of the display. Since last year, Mark Gurman predicted that the iPhone 14 will be redesigned in 2022.
According to today’s alleged pictures, the iPhone 14 Pro will look a lot like Apple’s current best iPhone, the iPhone 13, with the same back camera hump, arrangement, and more. Indeed, the only change pictured is a much-rumored new hole-punch housing for the camera and Face ID on the front of the display, which has been widely expected.
For the Pro versions, Apple is likely to debut a new A-series processor later this year, as well as a new iPhone 14 “Max” to replace the small, which is said to be going away.
