NEW APPLE I-PHONE 14 ANNOUNCED

IMAGE OF NEW APPLE IPHONE 14 COMING SOON

There just seems to always be a new announcement of somebody’s new camera going on all the time. The I-phone 13 was announced last September of 2021, and they have sold a lot of those phones. Apple is still a huge player in the cell phone industry. They do make good phones, good cameras, etc.

And it looks like they are getting ready to announce the new Iphone 14 in September of 2022 now. And my source: Pocket Lint is gathering information for me about this new phone.

Here’s what we know so far:

Apple iPhone 14 release date and price

  • Possibly 13 September 2022
  • From $699?

Typically Apple holds its iPhone event around the second week of September and normally on a Tuesday. The iPhone 13 models were revealed on 14 September, following this pattern.

If the pattern continues, the iPhone 14 models could be revealed on 13 September 2022. Of course nothing is official as yet, nor will it be for quite some time.

In terms of price, we’d expect the iPhone 14 models to start around the same ballpark as the iPhone 13 models. Rumours have claimed the iPhone mini model might be scrapped in the future, which if true would put the starting price of the iPhone 14 models up compared to the iPhone 13 models. Hopefully there will be an iPhone 14 mini though.

DESIGN:

  • All-new design
  • Punch hole camera?
  • Flush rear

The Apple iPhone 13 models followed the same design as the iPhone 12 models, featuring flat edges and a design closer in line with the iPhone 4 and 5 compared to the rounded edges we had gotten used to since the iPhone 6.

Rumours suggest the iPhone 14 models could change things up again though, with talk of a move to a punch hole front camera. It’s said the Pro models could see some sort of pill-shaped cutout that would house the front camera and Face ID beneath the display. There are also claims the protruding rear camera may end up flush with the back of the phone in the next iPhone.

We saw a reduced notch at the top of the iPhone 13 models compared to previous Face ID phones, and a patent was previously filed for a notch-less phone, but we suppose we will have to wait and see if this becomes a reality. 

In terms of finishes, we’d expect the Pro models to continue to be more premium than the standard models, and there have been rumours to suggest they could adopt scratch-resistant titanium. There is also talk that the mini model will be ditched and a new standard Max model will be introduced instead but everything is just rumour for now.

DISPLAY:

  • All OLED
  • 120Hz refresh rate
  • Different sizes

All 2022 iPhones will have likely have an OLED display, like the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 models offer. It’s also likely the iPhone 14 Pro models will have an adaptive refresh rate between 10Hz and 120Hz, like the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, though maybe the ProMotion technology will filter down to the standard models too. 

In terms of screen sizes, the iPhone 13 mini has a 5.4-inch display, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro have a 6.1-inch display and the iPhone 13 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch display. As mentioned, there has been some chatter about the iPhone mini being ditched and a standard Max model being introduced.

If this happens, the iPhone 14 models could come in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch models, with a Pro and standard model of each. We’re still hoping the mini will continue in 2022 though as we have a lot of love for that device.

Some speculation previously suggested in-display fingerprint sensors could work alongside Face ID, which is a plausible suggestion.

CAMERA:

  • Dual camera on standard models
  • Triple camera on Pro models

The Apple iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max both have a triple rear camera, consisting of a main wide sensor, ultra wide sensor and a telephoto sensor, while the standard iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 have the same main wide and ultra wide sensor, but they lack the telephoto lens.

There have been a couple of rumours claiming the iPhone 14 Pro models would feature a wide angle camera with an 1/1.3-inch 48MP CMOS image sensor and support 8K video recording but it is still very early days.

We expect the iPhone 14 Pro models to continue to offer an extra lens and extra features, like Macro and ProRES, over the iPhone 14 standard models. At the moment, it is unclear what might change for 2022 but improvements over the 2021 models are likely.

As the time gets closer to releasing this phone, we will continue to bring you information about the phone, as it becomes available.
