Unlike Google, Apple never does teasing before the official presentation of its iPhones. As a result, the firm has not dropped any clues regarding its new iPhone 14 series.
Nevertheless, despite Apple’s efforts to keep its secrets, there are already many leaks about this series which, normally, will be presented in September. For example, recently the YouTube channel Unbox Therapy published a video in which it presents a replica that would be that of the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
A video that corroborates previous rumors about the next iPhone
According to the chain, this replica would have been created from the dimensions of future iPhones that hull manufacturers have already obtained in advance. In any case, the video corroborates most of the rumors circulating about the next iPhones.
Overall, except for a few subtle differences (for example, the device would be noticeably thicker than its predecessor), the iPhone 14 Pro Max looks a lot like the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Among the most noticeable differences is the larger camera module.
Other sources suggest that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max should have 48-megapixel cameras. And it is probably this change that explains the difference in dimensions of the camera bump.
The Unbox Therapy video also backs up the facade rumors. Indeed, on the model presented by the YouTube channel, the notch is replaced by a bubble and a pill (for the FaceTime camera and Face ID sensors). In addition, the borders would be thinner.
Remember that normally only the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will have this new front design, while the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max should keep the notch.
Finally, the video shows that the iPhone 14 Pro Max should still have a Lightning port, but no USB-C. Again, this supports a rumor that Apple won’t adopt USB-C for the iPhone until 2023 (due to future EU legislation).
The end of the Lightning will not be for this year
In a recent post, analyst Ming Chi Kuo said he expects Apple to drop Lightning in favor of USB-C next year, which could improve fast charging and data transfer.
This is corroborated by an article published by Bloomberg, which indicates that Apple is already testing iPhones on which its proprietary port is replaced by a USB-C, in order to comply with future European legislation which will impose a universal charging port. on smartphones and other categories of electronic products. The company is also reportedly developing adapters to ensure accessories designed for Lightning can work well with products with USB-C ports.
Moreover, this transition would not only concern the iPhone, but also other productslike the AirPods.
