Four features we expect to see on iPhone 14 this year

In less than six months, Apple will announce the upcoming iPhone 14 series. With the rumors starting to heat up, there are a few features that have been largely confirmed on these new phones. Read on as we round up four of them we’re expecting to see on the iPhone 14.

No more mini version

It’s been a while since we’ve heard iPhone mini sales disappoint Apple. right Now, 9to5Mac Sources recently confirmed that we won’t see any of these phones with the 14 Series.

According to our sources, the new iPhone 14 (codenamed D27 and D28) will be available in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch versions, while the Pro models (codenamed D73 and D74) may be a bit taller to accommodate the new punch-hole + pill design.

So, if you are looking for a smaller phone, you will have to go for the new iPhone SE 3 and its “iconic design”.

Different design between regular and professional models

The iPhone 14 Pro will have a new hole-punch + bead design. This will be the first time Apple has moved from the look of the iPhone X to a new approach. However, this new design will be exclusive to Pro models, as the regular versions will likely remain the same as the iPhone 13, which is 30% smaller than the version in the iPhone 12.

Analyst Ross Young also corroborates this report by saying that all models will feature the same design again in 2023. Until then, if you want the latest design, you’ll have to use the Pro models.

A15 Bionic for iPhone 14 and A16 Bionic to iPhone 14 Pro

9to5Mac Independent sources and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo say Apple may break with tradition this year by releasing some iPhone 14 models with the same A15 chip as the iPhone 13.

The A15 chip will power the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 6.7-inch 14 Max, although the RAM will be upgraded to 6GB from 4GB. The new A16 SoC will be reserved for the higher and more expensive models, the 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.

As of now, it’s not clear if Apple will rename the A15 chip for the 14 regular phones – like the A15X – or instead use the more powerful version found in the iPhone 13 Pro.

48MP Main Sensor for iPhone 14 Pro

Another important feature coming to the iPhone 14 Pro is a 48MP wide sensor. It was first suggested by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, BloombergMark Gorman was the last to report this new feature.

While 48MP could unlock new functionality, Apple will likely continue to shoot 12MP photos, which you can read more about here. Regular iPhone 14 models will stick with a 12MP sensor on all lenses.

is contained

There are more rumors about this upcoming phone. For example, Apple will likely add satellite connectivity to the 2022 iPhone. This was first rumored for the Model 13, but it ended up not making the cut. Apart from that, all the above features are likely to be a part of the iPhone 14.
