Apple is preparing for its spring event sometime in March or April, which is rumored to introduce the third-generation iPhone SE and an iPad Air 5 with the new A15 chip. And with that, speculation about the upcoming iPhone 14 has begun to surface. Leaks indicate hardware upgrades, punch-hole camera on the front, and design revision.

Price and launch of the Apple iPhone 14

According to Mark Gurman, the iPhone 14 is expected to debut during apple fall event, more precisely in September, if we are guided by the previous launch events. The device will be available in four models and with a Max variant that replaces the iPhone mini.

So you have the standard models, Max, Pro and Pro Max, which could start at $799 (around Rs 60,000), the same price as the base iPhone 13. However, the Pro and Pro Max models could see a price increase of $100, according to LeaksApplePro. The phones could now cost $1,099 (around Rs 82,000) and $1,199 (around Rs 90,000) respectively.

Design and features of the Apple iPhone 14

Passing by Jon Prosser’s 3D renderingsiPhone 14 is essentially based on a combination of the build design of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 4, with flat edges and an overall sturdy build. The back and edges are supposedly made of titanium and retain a glass finish.

The phones are also reported to get rid of the infamous camera bump for a thicker flush glass back that sits over the lenses. For the front, Apple is incorporating OLED display panels that will replace the notch with a drilling camera. The panels are provided by LG and they come with support for a 120Hz ProMotion refresh rate.

Earlier this month, developer Jeff Grossman created a mockup for the iPhone 14, with a Oval/Pill Shaped Perforated Chamber Cutout instead of a circular one. Analyst Ross Young supported his claims by stating that there will be a pill cutout, although, on the side, you get a circular one to hold the camera.

It was also rumored that the company would switch to a USB Type-C charging port this time, to comply with European Union rules to curb electronic waste. However, Jon Prosser notes that Apple will keep its Lightning ports for now.

Specifications and hardware of the Apple iPhone 14

Rumors in recent months have indicated that the A16 Bionic chipset will push the hardware, offering a massive boost in performance. TMSC reported that the 4nm chip was built, offering a smaller, more power-efficient alternative to the A15. However, a recent report for Information suggests that the company is having production problems. That is, the iPhone 14 could stay with 5nm for the third year in a row.

All variants will come with a 120Hz ProMotion refresh rate, though according to the analyst ross joven, the base variant features a 60Hz LTPS (low-temperature polycrystalline silicon) standard panel. Touch-ID will also return, with its integrated sensor under the screen, instead of the power button.

The base and Pro variants will have a 6.06-inch screen with a 2532 x 1170 resolution, while the Max and Pro Max options measure 6.68 inches and support a 2778 x 1284 resolution. It’s also worth noting that only the Pro Max variant has an LTPO screen which, as mentioned above, is being provided by LG.

A report by analyst Ming-chi Kuo suggests a 48MP camera that takes advantage of camera binning. The process allows for better low-light photography while maintaining a high pixel count. The base model is expected to feature a rear dual camera setup, while the rest have a triple camera, adding a telephoto and ultra-wide angle lens to the mix.

A recently released patent also pointed towards a periscope-style zoom camera, though according to Kuo, it won’t appear until 2023 with the iPhone 15 lineup.

Other rumors point to a 2TB storage configuration for Pro models and above, and a 1TB configuration for the regular iPhone 14. Batteries will be upgraded on all models and 5G connectivity will return, along with Wi-Fi 6E support.
