APPLE just released the iPhone 13, but insiders are already having fun with the iPhone 14.
There’s a litany of suspected changes to the phone’s physical design and internal bits.
The iPhone 13 dropped in September 2021 to rave reviews and solid but envelope sales figures.
Although the iPhone 13 has come a long way, not all models are created equal – the iPhone 13 Mini just represents 3% of all iPhone 13 sales.
Experts predict that the disastrous sales performance of the iPhone 13 Mini will force Apple to drop the Mini from the iPhone 14 lineup.
9to5Mac noted that Apple may steer consumers who want a smaller device to the iPhone SE 3, which currently avoids competition from the soon-to-be-discontinued iPhone 11.
Externally, Apple is said to have reduced the screen clutter for a more futuristic look.
Industry insider Ross Young tweeted in January that the new phone “will have a hole + pill design on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models.”
Young’s wording is deliberate – the sleek look will be reserved for Pro models, while the notch that cuts into the touchscreen’s surface remains on other devices.
The exterior of the iPhone 14 and its family of devices aren’t the only aspects that are rumored to face changes, as are the eyes and guts of the phone.
The iPhone 14 camera will feature a 48-megapixel camera sensor, which will come with an increase in its lens size and photo processing power.
MacRumors quoted legendary analyst Ming-Chi Kuo as saying that the camera “will elevate cellphone camera photography to a new level.”
Finally, the processor chip should get an upgrade – but on a more limited time scale.
Apple mentioned the A15 chip, which is used inside the iPhone 13, is “+50% better than the next best competitor” – experts believe that Apple will slip the A15 chip into the iPhone 14 with minor tweaks to the instead of introducing a new chip.
Apple typically releases a new iPhone every 12-16 months.
In the tech industry, the promotional work and insider speculation begins long before the company makes an official statement.
