What will the iPhone 14 be like?May 31, 2022
iPhone SE is an extremely minor update to the popular line. Real changes should be expected this fall. Apple traditionally prepares a new lineup of smartphones, this time large-scale changes are expected in it. We collected and analyzed all known details and leaks.
In March 2021, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that after five years, Apple will finally abandon the notch design and replace it with an O-shaped cutout for the camera. Thus, a whole era will end in 2022 – in 2017, the company showed iPhone X , from that moment, almost all models (except 8, 8 Plus and SE) received it.

A little later, even more specifics appeared about the new design of the front panel of the smartphone – according to another Dylandkt insider, it will have two cutouts: for the front camera, as well as for the speaker.
The sidebars will also change slightly. The power and volume keys will be made in the style of the iPhone 5 and earlier – they will be round, and the volume buttons will have “+” and “-” symbols.
Changes are expected to be minimal. In terms of width and height, the models will be similar to the current models, the only thing is that they will be thicker, and the camera will no longer stick out, so that visually smartphones will become as similar as possible to Apple smartphones from 2013 and earlier.
Apple introduced the iPhone 5s on September 10, 2013.
The body material will change. According to JP Morgan Chase analysts, the chassis of smartphones will be made of high-grade titanium. In current models, they are made of aluminum. Previously, the company produced titanium Apple Watch.
There will be no changes in the refresh rate parameters – Pro-shki will receive 120 Hz, regular models 60 Hz. ProMotion displays are one of the main innovations of the iPhone 13 lineup and are not expected to change this year. The matrix type for all models will be OLED.

The diagonals will change – for regular models they will be equal to 6.1 and 6.7 inches, for Pro-shek the same number. Judging by such data, the mini version will disappear from the line , it will be replaced by the iPhone 14 Max. This is logical, the compact model sells the worst.
The new iPhone range will run on the A16 Bionic processor. Apple will release two versions of the chip – both will have a 6-core CPU architecture, but will differ in the number of graphics cores. Both versions will be created using the 4nm process technology, the manufacturer will be the same company TSMC.
A similar solution is used in Apple laptops – the MacBook Air has a seven-core M1 processor in the minimum configuration, in all others it has an 8-core processor. The most advanced version of the processor will only be equipped with the iPhone 14 Pro Max, 14 Pro, 14 and 14 Max will receive a simpler option. How much more powerful the new processor will be than the current one is unknown.

Another important feature of the iron will be the presence of the Snapdragon X65 modem. With it, Apple smartphones will have access to 10-gigabit 5G.
The amount of RAM will increase – the iPhone 14 and 14 Max will have 6 GB, the 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will have 8 GB. This was announced by analyst Jeff Pu, citing sources in the Chinese production chain. Recall that 13 and 13 mini have 4 GB, 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max have 6 GB.
The Lightning connector will remain. There were earlier rumors that Apple would be ditching it in favor of MagSafe, but they were later debunked. So we will see the port familiar since 2012.
The Lightning connector was introduced in 2012 with the iPhone 5.
On the camera side, significant changes are expected. The iPhone 14 could be the first model with a 10x optical zoom periscope zoom.

However, it is likely that we will see this innovation only in 2023. However, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the telephoto modules will be changed anyway. On this device, you can play games on iPhone without any doubt.
He also believes that the resolution of the main module will be increased from 12 MP to 48 MP. This will increase the maximum video resolution to 8K. This feature will allow you to broadcast video recorded from the iPhone on TVs with a resolution of 8K, which will allow you to use their functionality by 100%.
Apple is working on a crash detection feature for the iPhone and Apple Watch that could be available in 2022. This capability will use sensors such as the accelerometer. A surge in gravitational force would mean a collision.
When a car accident is detected, your iPhone or Apple Watch will automatically call emergency services. The fall detection feature on the Apple Watch works in a similar way. The iPhone 14 and Apple Watch Series 8 can get this feature, although it is unlikely to be limited to these devices. If the hardware allows, it will be available on earlier models.
