Set to be released in late September, the iPhone 14 is in the pipelines across the industry before production ramp-up. As information spreads across the supply chain, more information is coming out.
First, iPhone 14 renders show a virtually unchanged design, at least on the surface. However, EverythingApplePro has made a close-up inspection using the alleged 3D schematics of the phone and reports some changes in the microphone placement, corner radius, and slimmer bezel.
The new bezel thinness might allow apple to have a slightly smaller overall screen, which other leaks have mentioned. The rounded corners might be a slow evolution/unification to match the Series 7 Apple Watch, and they might require a new generation of protective cases for a tight fit.
In the rear, the primary camera could see a bump to 48 MP, and if Apple were to use the full resolution in daylight conditions, that would lead to impressive gains in details and texture. However, sticking to 12MP would “only” yield smaller quality improvements in these areas. The two other cameras appear similar to the existing setup, but they could have improved lenses.
Inside, an A16 Bionic processor would power the phone, with 6GB of RAM and 128+ GB of storage. We expect Apple’s computing platform to be excellent, and there’s no reason to see a deviation there.
Pricing-wise, the base version starts at $1099, which is the first sign that literally everything will become more expensive during these inflationary days. As for those who are waiting on the USB-C integration, it’d be nice, but I am not holding my breath on that one.
