Apple’s Far Out event on September 7, will unveil the iPhone 14, which promises to be the largest iPhone launch in many years.
This is the iPhone 14 Pro Series, the new iPhone 14 Max, and other major updates. The Apple event is just a week away, and the leaks aren’t stopping.
These are five iPhone 14 rumors that you should know before Tim Cook speaks at Apple’s September 7th event.
1. The iPhone 14 Pro price rise looks real
The iPhone 14 Pro promises many upgrades including a 48MP camera, an Always-On Display, a faster A16 Bionic Chip, and the elimination of the notch to make way for a few cutouts. There are also options for 256GB storage.
However, you should expect to pay more as Wedbush analyst Dan Ives claims that Apple will increase the price of the iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max by $100. The new iPhone Pros would cost you between $1,100 and $1,200. This is the new MacBook Air territory.
Eyes1122, a leaker on the Korean website Naver, claims that the iPhone 14’s price could change in a “completely unexpected direction” (opens a new tab), but we aren’t sure what they mean.
2. Phone 14 Pro photos and all colors
As we approach the launch of any iPhone you will see so-called “dummy units” appear. This is exactly what happened with iPhone 14 Pro.
First, Sleepy Afternoon uploaded a video showing an iPhone 14 Pro in action. It showed a new color called purple that changes with the light. Silver, graphite, and gold are also leaked.
Ice Universe and other sources show us how the death of the notch looks. The notch is being replaced by a punch hole for the camera and a pill-shaped cutout to use Face ID technology. The new cropping method seems to give more screen real estate. There is good news on the notch front.
3. iPhone 14 Pro notch Replacement could be a one-pill-shaped cutout
According to the first rumors about the iPhone 14, the iPhone 14 Pro would feature two cutouts at the sides of the screen. The rumored dual cutouts on the iPhone 14 Pro are being replaced by a longer, pill-shaped design. Apple could be arguing that the notch is being moved down.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman supports this rumor by posting the following tweet (opens in a new tab): “This truth. It appears to be a large, pill-shaped cutout. It would be strange to use this gap.”
It’s more intriguing. 9to5Mac reports that the new cutout in pill shape conceals a very useful feature. According to a source with knowledge of Apple’s plans, the space between the cutouts will be home to two privacy indicator lights. One for the microphone and the other for the camera.
4. iPhone 14 connectivity could be possible
The new iPhone 14 supports satellite communication, so if you are in an area with no cellular coverage and need a text message to be sent quickly, you might be able to do it using the iPhone 14. Although the hardware has been tested, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Apple is currently in negotiations with carriers to reach an agreement.
Another rumor: Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman suggests that the Apple Watch 8 Pro could have satellite connectivity.
5. Ultrawide camera upgrade
The iPhone 14 Pro has received a major upgrade to the main camera. It will now go from 12MP to 48MP, which is a first for the iPhone. Apple’s Pro phones could get 8K video support with the larger sensor.
Ming-Chi Kuo has made a shocking prediction that Apple will update its iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max ultra-wide cameras with a larger sensor with bigger pixels. This updated sensor will have a pixel size of 1.4 micrometers. This is a significant increase over the iPhone 13 Pro’s 10.0-micrometer pixels. This will allow the iPhone 14 Pro’s to capture more light at night, particularly. . Low-light photography is another area in which Apple’s cameras could be better.
6. iPhone 14 Pro 30W charger boost
DuanRui, a Twitter leaker (opens in new tab), claims that the new charger for the iPhone 14 Pro series uses gallium-nitride. You’ll be able to charge your phone faster and not worry about overheating. iPhone 13 series was charged at 20W. It reached 51% in 30 minutes. This is not bad, but it’s still slower than some of the faster-charging phones.
Apple already offers a GaN charger for its 16-inch MacBook Pro. So this improved charging rumor seems very credible.
7. iPhone 14 Max is actually the iPhone 14 Plus
This is something we’ve heard before. However, a Twitter user has confirmed that the iPhone 14 Max (Opens in a new tab) will be the iPhone 14 Plus.
Twitter user uploaded images of what appears to be iPhone 14 Plus cases. This could be legitimate.
8. iPhone 14 could get rid of the physical SIM card slot
Leaker Max Weinbach (opens in new tab), says that the iPhone 14 will be big on embedded SIMs or eSIM. Apple told carriers that the iPhone 14 series will be eSIM-only. He says that it is beyond his reach to know if the phones will have a SIM card slot. However, that is what this rumor suggests.
We think Apple might offer eSIM-only models to certain regions. This was previously rumored. But we’ll have to wait and see.
9. iPhone 14 Pro-always-on display behavior tipped
Both the iPhone 14 Pro Max and Pro Max will have always-on displays. MacRumors has now revealed some details about how they might work and look.
The iOS 16 lock screen interfaces with the iPhone 14 Pro’s always-on screen and integrates with notifications, depth effects, and wallpaper colors. The status bar will also move the cellular signal to one side and give you a full-width battery status bar.
10. iPhone 14 Pro battery boost looks locked-in
Mark Gurman, a Bloomberg reporter well-connected, supports claims that the iPhone 14 Pro models have longer battery life.
Gurman stated that the iPhone 14 Pro models will be slightly larger than the standard notch and have slimmer bezels. This was in his Power On newsletter (opens a new tab). They will also have larger batteries.
The tech insider does not mention the rumored iPhone 14 increase in battery capacity. The next-generation iPhone standard and the so-called iPhone 14 Max may increase battery life, but they could also have better software and functionality. Operating efficiency.
