Apple’s iPhone 13 series is expected to launch later in September with a moderate upgrade over the predecessor iPhone 12. But, next year, there will be some major changes in the iPhone 14 series, Ming said- Chi Kuo, a popular market analyst.
Apple could incorporate an in-house designed TouchID (fingerprint sensor) into the 2022 series mobile models, 9to5Mac reported citing Kuo’s investor rating.
In addition, the company is likely to change the screen sizes and naming schemes of new iPhones.
Currently, Apple sells four iPhone 12 series in three screen sizes of 5.4 inch (12 mini), 6.1 inch (iPhone 12 and 12 Pro) and 6.7 inch (iPhone 12 Pro Max).
But, in 2022, Apple is expected to abandon the 5.4-inch screen design and offer only two 6.1-inch (iPhone 14 and 14 Pro) and 6.7-inch (iPhone 12 Max and 12 Pro Max).
It turned out that the 5.4 inch iPhone 12 mini was unable to gain traction with consumers over other models. With the larger sizes, Apple will be able to incorporate a larger cell to provide longer battery life.
With the addition of TouchID based on an in-screen fingerprint sensor and a new 48MP wide-angle sensor, there will be good demand for all four iPhone 14 models. However, Kuo added that the The 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Max, which will be priced under $ 900, would become the Cupertino-based company’s bestseller in 2022.
