Leaked iPhone 14 Specifications and Release Date

Rancakmedia.com – There is a lot of talk about leaked iPhone 14 specifications and release date, you can find out below.

Leading Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects the iPhone 14 lineup to feature four devices including two upgraded 'Pro' variants. So, despite the fact that nothing is certain, there are a number of plausible hypotheses to think about.

We're huge iPhone 13 fans, so we expected great things from the iPhone 14. Especially considering that the budget iPhone SE (2022) is on par with the iPhone 13 in terms of performance.

A Glance About the iPhone 14 Rumors

iPhone 14 Release Date

Apple hasn't said a word about the iPhone 14 – just the release date. But since Apple usually announces new iPhones at the same time every year, it's more likely that the iPhone 14 will appear in September 2022.

On the second Tuesday of every month, on September 14, 2021, the iPhone 13 breaks the seal of secrecy. As the first or second Tuesday in September is favored by Apple, it is possible that the iPhone 14 will support debut on September 6 or 13, 2022, subject to availability.

Apple events usually start at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time, which is 6:00 p.m. GMT / 4:00 am AEST, at the company's headquarters in Apple Park California.

Apple's first event of 2022 took place in March, but there's no word on the iPhone 14. Instead, the long-awaited iPhone SE 3 and new iPad Air have arrived for gadget fans.

iPhone 14 price

iPhone 14 price still just a word. But considering the base iPhone 13 starts at £679 / $699 / AUS1199, we expect the iPhone 14 to be priced similarly.

In the UK, the iPhone 13 launched for £20 less than the iPhone 12. Hopefully the dip will continue, but that's only an optimistic thought if one rumor is to be believed.

It comes courtesy of iDropNews, which claims sources suggest a price increase is being explored internally at Apple. While the base iPhone 14 will start at $799, the larger iPhone 14 Max will cost an additional $100, priced at $899 (about £650, AU$1200).

The Pro model will now cost $ 1099, which is $ 100 more than the existing iPhone 13 Pro $ 999. Meanwhile, the iPhone 14 Pro Max will cost $ 1199, which is also $ 100 more expensive than the current iPhone 13 Pro Max $ 1199.

iPhone 14 design

There will be major changes to the iPhone 14 starting with appearance. In short, Apple's future phones may look very different from the iPhone 13.

In September 2021, Jon Prosser, from FrontPageTech, offered us a "closer look at the iPhone 14". The respected leaker published a number of renders including the one above which seems to reveal the iPhone 14.

If Prosser is correct, Apple's next phone will feature a "titanium edge", making it the heaviest iPhone yet.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman was quick to weigh in. The famous Apple watcher has tipped the iPhone 14 for a “complete redesign” and believes the 5.4-inch iPhone Mini is almost certainly dead and buried.

Ming-Chi Kuo, arguably the most reliable Apple analyst on the scene, seems to be on the same page as Gurman.

Kuo said Apple will release four iPhone 14 devices in 2022, including the new and "affordable" iPhone Max as a replacement for the discontinued iPhone Mini.

Here's how the iPhone 14 family could line up:

  1. iPhone 14 – 6.1 inch screen
  2. iPhone 14 Max – 6.7 inch screen
  3. iPhone 14 Pro – 6.1-inch 120Hz display
  4. iPhone 14 Pro Max – 6.7-inch 120Hz display

As of April 2022, a leaked case schematic supports this lineup.

In December 2021, Korean website The Elec said so. Much like Prosser, it is said that both iPhone 14 'Pro' models will benefit from the new 'hole-punch' display.

In other words, Apple will (finally) start removing the unsightly camera notch introduced on the iPhone X – in favor of a much neater 'pinhole' selfie camera. We live in hope. Other rumors suggest a longer 'pill-shaped' cutout instead of the notch.

Ross Young of the display industry believes that Apple will use punched holes and pill-shaped cuts in its next generation of display technology, a design that has won support from prominent analyst Jon Prosser.

Each cutout will serve a different function, Young added – the circular 'punch hole' cutout will house the Face ID point projector, while the pill-shaped cutout will house the front camera and the Face ID infrared camera.

Only the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are expected to get the new cut. The cheaper iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max are expected to stay in the same price bracket as the cut iPhone 13 for at least another year.

This new cutout – along with slimmer bezels – is expected to make for a slightly larger screen too, according to Young.

He predicts the screen size will be increased fractionally (from 6.06 to 6.12 inches on the iPhone 14 Pro, and 6.68 to 6.69 inches on the iPhone 14 Pro Max) compared to the iPhone 13 Pro model.

Both the Pro and Pro Max have thinner bezels than the non-Pro models. That's according to Ice universe, who tweeted a photo of the new design.

The display should stay at 6.1 inches for the iPhone 14 Pro and 6.7 inches for the iPhone 14 Pro Max, but narrower bezels mean more or more pixels for the display, with less wasted space.

There was talk of Touch ID back in 2022. Anonymous tipster leaks Since the iPhone 14 Pro lineup is the most likely candidate for testing, ApplePro is making this assumption (besides Face ID, of course).

The iPhone 13 Pro was used to test Touch ID, which Apple later rejected, so these rumors should be treated with caution. Indeed, other rumors say Apple went the other way, and has abandoned Touch ID altogether.

The report claims Apple has stopped trying to implement the iPhone's under-display fingerprint sensor, meaning we won't be seeing Touch ID on the iPhone 14 or its successors.

Instead, Apple goes all out with Face ID – which makes sense, considering the added convenience (especially now that it can work when you're wearing a face mask).

The physical SIM card will likely also be removed for Apple users. If rumored, the virtual eSIM slot will replace the standard SIM card slot on Apple's iPhone 14 when it launches later this year.

It is possible that the iPhone 14 will be wider than its predecessor, based on the leaked schematics. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will feature a larger body and a protruding camera bump on the back, according to these renderings.

Despite the slight shift in dimensions, they are noteworthy in that they defy the recent 'slender is better' trend. (Apple has made the iPhone 13 slightly thicker than the iPhone 12, so this trend continues.)

According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the bigger camera bump is to make up for the new 48MP main camera sensor, which is a significant upgrade from the older 12MP model (Apple has stuck with 12MP since the iPhone 6S in 2015).

“The diagonal length of the 48MP CIS will increase by 25-35 percent, and the height of the 48MP 7P lens will increase by 5-10 percent,” Kuo tweeted.

The new 48MP sensor, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, will be included only in the Pro model. If so, the camera bump on non-Pro models can be reduced.

Finally, the iPhone Fold, Apple's first foldable iPhone, is said to be launching soon. Despite reports that Apple has been working on a prototype, the device won't be available until at least 2022. A few years from now, according to Bloomberg, the iPhone Fold could be available. Don't hold your breath.

iPhone 14 display

The iPhone 13 offers a Super Retina XDR OLED display while the Pro and Pro Max feature Apple's 120Hz ProMotion refresh rate technology, which should make movies and scrolling smoother.

What's the point of telling you? Aesthetics-wise, we expect the iPhone 14 to match or possibly surpass the iPhone 13. If so, do you think ProMotion 120Hz screens will debut on all four iPhone 14 handsets?

Apparently not. IPhone 14 devices are expected to stick with 60Hz LTPS screens on “at least one”, according to a new report from The Elec. Of course, this opens up the prospect that up to three devices might get 120Hz LTPO screens, as seen on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

Display Supply Chain Consulting CEO Ross Young has made his most specific forecast to date. In September 2021, Young published an image purporting to reveal the full specifications of the iPhone 14 screen. The gist of it is as follows:

  1. iPhone 14 – 6.06 inches, 1170 x 2532 OLED display with 60Hz refresh rate and 460 pixels per inch.
  2. iPhone 14 Max – 6.68-inch, 1284 x 2778 OLED display with a 60Hz refresh rate and 458 pixels per inch.
  3. i Phone 14 Pro – 6.06-inch, 1170 x 2532 OLED display with 1-120Hz variable refresh rate and 460 pixels per inch.
  4. iPhone 14 Pro Max – 6.68-inch, 1284 x 2778 OLED display with a 1-120Hz refresh rate and 458 pixels per inch.

Due to his previous success with iPhone leaks, Young stood by to build this one (although his estimates for screen size have been updated; see earlier in this piece).

If so, both versions of the iPhone 14 Pro will offer variable 120Hz refresh panels, enabling faster frame rates when users need them, and saving battery life when they don't.

This statement has been backed up by someone who will work on Shadow leaks. They claim that the LTPO display technology in both the Pro versions will offer high refresh rates and resolutions without sacrificing battery life. If true, it will be a huge boon for users.

iPhone 14 Storage, Power, and Battery Life

The iPhone 13 was introduced to us as the “most powerful iPhone”, but since the latest cheap iPhone SE (2022) shares the same A15 Bionic chipset, it is dead certificate that the iPhone 14 will offer some extra zip.

Analyst Ross Young predicts that Apple's A16 Bionic CPU, which may be the first generation of 4nm technology, will power the smartphone.

If that's the case, expect a big increase in power compared to the 5nm A15 Bionic processor in the current iPhone 13.

There's even talk of TSMC, Apple's chip supplier, upgrading to a game-changing 3mn chip in 2022 (via MacRumours) (via MacRumours ).

If that's the case, it seems that 3D mappers should expect smoother animations and quicker reaction users.

We also expect Apple to inject some of that power into some of its new Augmented Reality apps.

However, there was a hitch in the plan. In response to the worldwide chip shortage caused by the pandemic, everything from game consoles like the Sony PS5 to cars and smartphones are experiencing some type of manufacturing slowdown.

As a result, as with the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, there's been a lot of discussion about Apple sticking with 5nm CPUs. We think this is nothing more than Apple's 'worst case' backup strategy.

Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects Apple to roll out the new A16 processor this year, but only in the two high-end iPhone 14 models.

A tweet from him projects that the A16 will go to the iPhone 14 Pro and Max, while the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will retain the presence of the A15 Bionic in the iPhone 13 series.

Also, according to Kuo, each new model in the lineup will include 6GB of RAM, despite the fact that Apple doesn't usually disclose RAM specs for its iPhones.

There's 6GB of RAM in the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max, but only 4GB in the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini, so it's a significant upgrade over the cheaper models.

The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max may also have LPDDR5 RAM, but the lower-end versions will still use the 4X LPDDR seen in the iPhone 13 range, Kuo said. We can also witness an increase in speed when it comes to data transmission, at least for the Pro model.

We believe that Apple could upgrade the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max's Lightning connector to accommodate USB 3.0's maximum speed of 5 Gbps, compared to 480 Mbps for the current Lightning connection.

Creative types who need to transfer large files, such as high-definition movies, will really enjoy this. If the iPhone 14 is anything like the iPhone 13, then we might expect the same storage options: 128GB for entry-level phones and up to 1TB for the most expensive Pro phones.

There's talk of Apple selling 2TB of storage with the 2022 Pro model, but will that sell enough 2TB phones to make it a reasonable option? We're not sure.

If Apple is going to increase the computing power of the iPhone, it makes sense to upgrade the battery as well. The new iPhone 13 lasts two and a half hours longer than the iPhone 12, so we expect a substantial increase in power.

Finally, rumors surfaced that the iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max might not include a headphone jack at all. We can see why rumors about the iPhone 12 and 13 continue now that wireless chargers and wireless headphones have become commonplace.

iPhone 14 camera

The iPhone 14 Pro, Max and Pro Max are rumored to have triple-lens cameras, according to renders shared by FrontPageTech's John Prosser.

A dual-lens camera on the iPhone 14 standard seems like a foregone conclusion (this prediction is backed up by a schematic of the April 2022 case leak).

The most interesting modifications are expected to appear on the spec sheet. Renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts Apple will give the iPhone 14 Pro model with the new 48MP main sensor a sizeable upgrade from the 12MP sensor on the iPhone 13 Pro.

Kuo claims the upgraded sensor is critical because “the optimal resolution for augmented and mixed reality is 8K to 16K”.

According to one source, Apple plans to launch a mixed reality headset in 2022, which seems to be related to the rumors mentioned above.

Additionally, according to Kuo, Apple's 2022 iPhones will all be capable of 8K video recording, a first for the company. Samsung Galaxy S smartphones already allow 8K recording, so Apple is a bit behind in this aspect.

Another interesting rumor is that the iPhone 14 Pro models could get periscope-style zoom. Apple has patented a technology (via PatentlyApple), which allows lenses to be stacked horizontally rather than vertically, for a much longer zoom range.

Once again, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra already offers 10x optical zoom. Could Apple be planning to beat its biggest rival in 2022?

Conclusion

Apple hasn't said a word about the iPhone 14 – just the release date. But since Apple usually announces new iPhones at the same time every year, it's more likely that the iPhone 14 will appear in September 2022.
