iPhone 14 Rumours

Whilst iPhone 13 was only released last September, predictions about what we can expect for iPhone 14 are already circulating the rumour mill.

In this post, we take a look at what we can expect in terms of design, features, and release date.

Design
iPhone 14 is expected to look fairly similar to iPhone 13, but with a thicker chassis and no camera bumps on the back, meaning a smooth and flat design all-around. One prediction for iPhone 14's design is the elimination of the notch (the small black bit on top of the screen). While the latest iPhones feature a notch to house the camera and face ID hardware, it's expected that these will now be stored in a hole-punch like design. We're also pretty certain that a Mini version of the iPhone 14 won't happen as the recent Mini models haven't done so well sales-wise.

While these changes may seem subtle, we expect that they will create an overall redesign of the iPhone; producing a sleeker, neater looking iPhone. 

Features
No major changes are expected, other than a few processor changes and camera updates. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed that by 2022, iPhone will feature a 10x optical zoom, allowing users to add an impressive zoom range. Other camera updates that could appear include 8K video capabilities for the iPhone 14 Pro models, plus a jump to 48MP sensors and larger pixel sizes.


A new A16 processor is expected to be used for iPhone 14, so we can expect major gains in battery life, as well as a lighter device with a smaller battery unit and superior performance.

Date
iPhone 14 will most likely be announced mid-September 2022 and hit the shops around a week later. This would be in line with Apple's typical schedule for iPhone releases, however there are also rumours of a potential iPhone SE being released... could this lead to a new schedule for iPhone releases?
