That’s it, the first announcements were made during the Apple keynote on March 8, 2022. If it mainly concerned new features on the Mac side, we were also able to discover among Apple’s smartphones, the iPhone SE 3.
Pleasantly surprised by the new features and technical performance offered by this latest iPhone model, we can expect more for the release of the future iPhone 14 and its variations such asiPhone 14 Max.
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max in a nutshell
Rumours: everything we know about the future iPhone so far
Rumors are intensifying more and more around the future range of iPhones from the Apple brand. According to one of the recognized analysts in the Apple universe, Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 14 would surely not be available in a compact format, but it would still offer 4 different models: theiPhone 14I’iPhone 14 MaxI’iPhone 14 Pro and theiPhone 14 Pro Max.
Face ID, notch or absence of a notch, front camera, A16 Bionic chip, cost… We tell you more about theiPhone 14 and its 6.7-inch version, theiPhone 14 Max.
RELEASE DATE: When is Apple’s next iPhone 14 coming out?
If for the moment, no release date of the new iPhone range has not been confirmed, we can however guess the period in which the announcements will be made.
Indeed, hoping that the Cupertino company follows its usual schedule, the launch of their new iPhone models could well see the light of day. the 2nd or 3rd week of September 2022.
DESIGN, DIMENSIONS AND COLORS: What do we know about the design of the new iPhone?
Side design of the future iPhone, you won’t see a big change aesthetically. The model ofiPhone 14 of 2022 and its 6.7-inch version would thus be similar to that of previous generations.
Conversely, its Pro version would consider abandoning the notch at the top of the screen, to make way for a pill-shaped punch at the top to stand out from the competition. Other rumors suggest that the notch would be replaced by a double hole in the capsule form.
As for the Face ID facial recognition feature, it would still be present in the update of the new iPhone. At the volume buttons, nothing should change.
SCREEN SIZE AND RESOLUTION: 60 Hz OLED panels
Apple has made significant changes to the display panels of its smartphones in recent years. Since the iPhone X, recent iPhone models are equipped with a OLED screen panel (except iPhone 11 and iPhone XR). Thus, we easily imagine the next iPhone equipped with an OLED screen slab with a refresh rate of 60 Hz.
As for the size, the iPhone 14 would be expected at 6.1 inch format and the iPhone 14 Max, with a 6.7 inch diagonal. These models do not plan to accommodate a ProMotion screen as on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The iPhone 14 Max would be the first big iPhone that would feature the lowest price ever.
CAMERA AND IMAGE: triple sensors and wide-angle camera
For the functionality of thecameraI’iPhone 14 and its entire range could be assigned a 48 megapixel wide-angle main sensor (Mpx) instead of the 12 Mpx that we currently find on recent models.
The two secondary sensors would be 12 Mpx. The Apple brand smartphone and its new versions would allow you to film in 8K !
However, to have the ‘periscope’ optical zoom, we will surely have to wait for the iPhone 15.
STORAGE AND MEMORY: How much storage capacity will the latest iPhone offer?
If we believe the rumors, the new iPhone would be equipped with 2 GB of additional RAM memorythus increasing to 6 GB of RAM in total.
Regarding the internal storage space, Apple could consider a storage capacity up to 2TB of data, but this would mainly concern the Pro versions of the iPhone 14.
Of course, let’s not forget that this is still speculation. We will have to wait until September 2022 to have an official announcement of the technical sheet of the next iPhone.
NEW PROCESSOR: A switch to 3 nm engraving for the A16 Bionic chip?
Apple’s latest processor model, the A16 Bionic, is expected to incorporate the makeup of the new iPhone. Like the A15 Bionic, it aims to achieve a higher level of performance. If we were hoping for a switch to 3 nm engraving for this chip, it won’t be for now.
According to rumors, the privileged partner of the Cupertino company which has support for the production lines of these processors would encounter difficulties in creating the A16 Bionic 3 nm en masse. We will have to wait for the next iPhone to see a finely engraved chip.
On the other hand, the gain in performance compared to previous generations will be there, as always. We will undoubtedly see developments in the 6 processor cores of which 4 are dedicated toenergetic efficiencyand the other 2 at the performance.
PRICE: How much does the iPhone 14 cost?
Today the iPhone 13 is priced at €909 and its iPhone 13 mini version is priced at €809. If Apple intends to maintain this momentum, we believe that the prices will be the same in 2022 for the entire range of the future iPhone.
So the iphone 14 price would be understood between 900-910 € and theiPhone 14 Max, between 1000-1010 €.
What will really change from the iPhone 14 of the previous models?
Based on the rumors about the new range of iPhone 14 expected for the month of September 2022, we can already identify what will distinguish it from its other counterparts.
It will certainly keep the Face ID functionality on future models in order to secure access to the iPhone. However, you will be able to find a state-of-the-art camera with a 48 megapixel wide-angle camera to enjoy 8K.
The passage to the new A16 Bionic chip is also an essential point to note. Indeed, with this new processor model, the US-based firm Apple is constantly improving the performance of its coveted smartphones around the world. On this side, Apple users will probably never be disappointed!
