While we’re expecting the iPhone 14 to get a full redesign, it’s unlikely to see anything that revolutionary. Rather, we should expect more of the same. Renders submitted by leaker Jon Prosser suggest that the iPhone 14 could adopt a hole-punch design. This would be in line with the design of most Android phones and eliminate the notch, while also letting users choose between Face ID and an in-display fingerprint sensor.
There are rumors circulating that Apple will introduce a new camera with autofocus support in its upcoming iPhone 14 lineup. The latest rumor is that the camera will be supplied by LG Innotek, a South Korean company, and not by a Chinese manufacturer like it was previously expected. LG Innotek is also responsible for the camera on the iPhone 14 and will likely cost more than other manufacturers. It is still unclear if the new camera will feature autofocus, but it will certainly offer users a better portrait mode experience.
Better low-light camera performance
Apple is not fazed by the megapixel wars and has long aimed for larger pixels that provide better low-light performance. The iPhone 14 Pro camera likely uses “four cell merge output mode,” which groups four pixels together to produce a high-quality 12MP image even in low-light conditions. This could be a welcome feature for those who need better low-light photo quality.
8GB of RAM
If the rumours are true, the iPhone 14 Pro could boast 8GB of RAM. However, these reports should be taken with a grain of salt, as Apple tends not to implement features arbitrarily to match competing devices. While this particular rumor has not yet been confirmed by Apple, it is backed by numerous other sources, including an analyst from Haitong International Securities.
If rumours are to be believed, the iPhone 14 Pro could come with a 48-megapixel main sensor and a secondary 12-megapixel telephoto zoom camera. It will also likely feature a 120-Hz display and the same A16 Bionic chip as other iPhone models. While the exact specs have not been revealed yet, the device is expected to cost at least $1,000. Let’s take a closer look at the details.
In addition to a dot projector, the iPhone 14 could feature a floating oval cutout for the selfie camera. Apple is reportedly working to eliminate the notch from the iPhone 14, which was controversial when it was first introduced in 2017. While the notch is still on the iPhone 13, it hasn’t changed much since then. According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, we could see iPhone 14 models without the notch by 2022. In addition to the dot projector, the iPhone 14 Pro could have a pill-shaped cutout for the front camera and the infrared camera, among other components.
