The complete technical sheet of the leaked iPhone 14 and 14 Pro

rumeurs iPhone 14 2022

name

What you need to know to begin with is that the very name “iPhone 14” is by no means certain. Apple could indeed choose to call its future flagship iPhone 13s or iPhone 13S, a nomenclature that certain ranges have already tasted like the iPhone X and iPhone 6 in the past.

Depending on the screen sizes that we will see below, we rather rely on the following brands:

  • iPhone 14
  • iPhone 14 Max
  • iPhone 14 Pro
  • iPhone 14 Pro Max

Software: iOS 16?

If Apple does not deviate from its habits, the iPhone 14 will be powered by iOS 16. No information on this version has circulated until now, but we know that the developer is mainly focusing on the deployment of features related to the confidentiality in recent months.

Note that the arrival of a virtual reality headset and AR glasses are also in the pipeline; new 360-degree options or superimposed on the user’s environment could therefore be part of the game.

IPhone 14 Connectivity and Charging

The iPhone 14 could be equipped with a 6E Wi-Fi modem. Already present on the Galaxy S21 Ultra, this component announced by Ming-Chi Kuo (75.9% of hypotheses verified according to AppleTrack) will then bring several benefits to the iPhone of 2022 such as faster file transfers.

On the socket side, the proprietary Lightning plug would still be there. Europe is trying to put an end to what it considers an ecological aberration in favor of the universal standard of USB-C, but Apple is not yet abandoning its homemade alternative despite its zero emission goal for 2030. It It is rumored, however, that an iPhone will soon be devoid of any charging port, in favor of wireless only. But it will probably not be the iPhone 14, the rumors rather betting on its successors now.

Nothing on increased autonomy for the moment.

Photo rumors

According to a hypothesis supported by orders for spare parts from LG Innotek instead of its competitor Samsung, Apple is preparing so-called “periscope” lenses. In short, this is a foldable zoom technology that allows the integration of large sensors in small formats. This is how the iPhone 14 Pro would then acquire a 10x zoom, an ideal continuation of the telephoto lens already present on iPhone 13 and which even the ophthalmologist Tommy Korn recommends.

Performance penalized

All rumors about the iPhone 14 processor logically point to TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) as the supplier. This takes care of the ARM Apple silicon chips (iPad, iPhone, Mac) and nothing should change for the occasion. Its logistics chain would however be hampered by various factors including a shortage of equipment, the coronavirus pandemic or the geopolitical context on the island of Taipei according to The Information (score AppleTrack : 90.9%).

Rather than improving – like every year – by reducing its engraving fineness, expected to drop from five to three nanometers according to the local source DigiTimes (58.3%) or four for Nikkei Asia, the founder would then risk being stuck at the same stage by the time the iPhone 2022 is ready.

The iPhone 14 should not be slowed down, however, given that the optimizations of iOS have more than enough to compensate if necessary. As for the RAM, it stagnating at 6 GB for the Pro since the iPhone 12 is well below other brands for the same price, it is easy to assume that its quantity will be revised upwards, but nothing is less certain. The “classic” iPhone 14 can therefore just as easily be satisfied with 4 GB as for the iPhone 13.

iPhone 14: screens

If there is one rumor about the iPhone 14 on which everyone seems to agree, it is that of its different variations and therefore their respective diagonals. We would thus be entitled to the following quartet (Kuo), with a better size / screen ratio each time:

  • 6.1 inches for the basic iPhone 14
  • 6.1 inches for the iPhone 14 Pro
  • 6.7 inches for the iPhone 14 Max
  • 6.7 inches for the iPhone 14 Pro Max

No iPhone 14 mini, therefore, the fault of too low sales for the current compact editions.

Note that to believe another hallway noise published this time at The Elec (75%), the ProMotion technology which refreshes the image broadcast up to 120 times per second would be exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro. As with the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, again. The classic 2022 iPhones, on the other hand, would be content with LTPS OLED panels limited to 60Hz.

Ming-Chi Kuo also specifies that Touch ID under the screen will not be available with the iPhone 14, but perhaps for a device of the next generation.

Finally, even if it is likely to see Apple enter the foldable iPhone market before other manufacturers have proven themselves in the field, the question still arises. Indeed, although these smartphones are still too expensive and their long-term future relatively unclear, we are not immune to an imminent democratization as Cupertino likes to do so (Watch, AirPods, Face ID…). Corning and Foxconn, two major subcontractors of the company, are already testing prototypes while the latter is multiplying unequivocal patents in this direction. So it’s not just a rumor …

What storage for the iPhone in 2022?

For the site MyDrivers, the iPhone 14 (Pro?) would ship up to 2 TB of storage where the articles preceding it are content with 1 TB maximum. To do this, Apple would use QLC flash storage, to four-level cell. A real innovation for:

  • download and play files faster
  • save space for final assembly
  • save on production costs

But beware, because here again no additional information concerning the reliability of this rumor has reached us until now.

IPhone 14 design: rumors

For @LeaksApplePro on Twitter, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max that could see the light of day in the fall of 2022 will finally abandon their protruding notch in favor of a punch camera, as on Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G by example. the notch would however be kept for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max.

To finish with the appearance, Mark Gurman (Bloomberg, 87% accuracy) is betting on a complete overhaul of the format of the iPhone 14 compared to the 2021 versions. The investment bank JPMorgan goes even further and relies on a titanium version!

Price

Unfortunately, the price of 2022 iPhones looks set to rise. It has in fact not moved from the iPhone 12 to the iPhone 13, but the delivery delays in Asia seen above or the multiple fines with billions of euros condemning Apple (anti-competitive behavior, security, rights consumers) do not help.

Currently, the cheapest iPhone is the iPhone 13 mini with a price of 809 euros on the meter. But since the compact format would be at the end, looking at the price of the 6.1-inch iPhone 13 makes more sense: it is set at 909 euros. Add 91 euros … And the symbolic bar of 1000 euros for your iPhone 14 can be crossed.

We can also imagine a pack with iPhone 14, Apple One package and VR headset for a higher price. But this will depend on the actual release date of the latter, especially since recent clues about it predict that it will be autonomous, with its own screen …

And in 2023?

Finally, here is a quick recap of other rumors that should not be confirmed with the iPhone of 2022, but possibly with the iPhone 15 or iPhone 16. First, with the end of Lightning, Gurman also believes that one of the two laptops will eventually be compatible with reverse charging. Kuo, meanwhile, isn’t shy about talking about the camera below the screen. Finally, again according to the Taiwanese firm TF International Securities, it is a 48 MPx lens that is in preparation …
