Every fall, Apple introduces new iPhone models, and 2022 will be no exception. We’re expecting four new iPhones in 6.1 and 6.7-inch sizes. There will be two standard affordable models called the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max as well as two high-end expensive “Pro” models called the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The new iPhones are coming! We’ve got all the details on what to expect from Apple’s newest models, so check out our iPhone 14 Pro and Max rumor roundup for a complete overview.
Apple is releasing an all-new lineup of iPhones in 2022, with some major design differences between the models. The 6.1 inches “iPhone 14 Pro” and a 6.7-inch larger version known as ” iPhone 14 pro max”. With the next iPhones coming out, there are rumors of major design differences between the iPhone 14 Pro models and the standard iPhone 14 models. The Face ID camera on these phones will also change – which could make for an even more secure login experience!
Instead of a notch, The iPhone 14 Pro models are rumored to include two display cutouts – around “hole-punch” cutout will house the Face ID dot projector and another pill-shaped hole that will accommodate front-facing camera plus other Face Id components.
The iPhone 14 Pro models could have a titanium chassis, which would be an upgrade from the stainless steel used for the iPhone 13 Pro. Titanium would also set the iPhone 14 Pro apart from the iPhone 14 models that are expected to continue to use an aluminum chassis.
The new iPhone 14 models are expected to feature a thicker camera body with the ability for it not to have that pesky bump. If this pans out, the lenses, flash, and LiDAR scanner could sit flush with the rear glass.
Apple is set to release new camera features with the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro models. The 48-megapixel Wide-angle and 8K video recording capabilities. There could also be some improvements to the telephoto lens, and we may see a better Ultra-Wide camera. The 48-megapixel Wide camera, the telephoto lens improvements, and the LiDAR Scanner will continue to be Pro-only features.
The iPhone 14 Pro models are expected to see camera improvements and notch changes not coming the iPhone 14 models, but all four phones coming in 2022 will use Apple’s A16 chip with power efficiency enhancements.
Apple is introducing new satellite-based emergency features that will let users send texts in situations with no cellular coverage and report accidents. Alongside the new satellite-based emergency features Apple is expected to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X65 5G chip, which is the first 10-gigabit 5G modem with faster connectivity speeds and connectivity improvements.
iPhone 14 Pro Design
It looks like Apple is finally ditching the notch for some of the iPhone 14 models and rumors suggest it’s the Pro models that will get a notch-less design.
Rather than a notch, Apple is going to go with a smaller set of cutouts. Originally, rumors said that Apple would introduce a single circular hole-punch cutout to accommodate the front-facing camera, but subsequent information indicates there won’t be a single cutout — Apple is likely adding two.
Display analyst Ross Young expects to see both a pill-shaped cutout and a circular one. The front camera, Face ID infrared camera, and possibly other components could be housed in the pill-shaped cutout And the circular cutout will likely house the Face ID dot projector.
Apple has been working on a way to put Face ID technology under the screen of their smartphones. This would allow Apple to cut down on the size of its cutouts and will leave more available screen space on the front of the device, but it’s not yet clear if this will happen.
Apple is working on a solution to incorporate under-display Face ID, but there is a chance that the technology may not be ready for use in 2022 devices.
The Barclays analysts claim that Apple is planning to adopt a laser-based time of flight architecture for Face ID. This would allow them to bring substantial changes in their front-facing camera array, and other rumors point to a unibody lens design for a reduction in the size of the front camera module.
The iPhone 14 Pro models are going to support 120Hz display technology, and rumors suggest ProMotion is likely to continue to be a feature limited to the more expensive iPhone models. Some rumors suggest that all iPhone 14 models may get higher refresh rate screens in time; however based on Ross Young’s analysis he doesn’t think this is possible due Apple’s supply chain issues for panel production.
With the new iPhones coming out in a few months, Apple is now sourcing LTPO OLED displays for the iPhone 14 Pro models to allow for 120Hz ProMotion refresh rates. This means that they will be able to output higher quality images than ever before with unparalleled speed and fluidity – perfect for gamers! Though Samsung supplied the OLED panels that Apple used for the iPhone 13 Pro models, Apple is planning to also source some displays from LG Display and BOE in 2022.
With a similar flat-edged design to last year’s model, the iPhone 14 Pro is expected to come with some updates. These include changes not just on its display but also in body shape and style – which could make for a handsome smartphone!
Leaker Jon Prosser says that Apple will be using a thicker chassis without any camera bump. The lenses, LED flash, and LiDAR Scanner are all flush with the rear glass for an iPhone design which hasn’t been seen since the early days of product production!
These leaked photos show a possible new design for the iPhone 14. Along with its flush camera, round volume buttons that look similar to those found on older iPhones 4 and 5 may be included in this model as well. The new design of the speakers and microphone grilles is going to be a lot more appealing with its elongated mesh cutouts rather than individual holes at the bottom.
It’s surprising that there will be no more 5.4-inch iPhones in 2022, but Apple has decided to do away with the mini line following lackluster sales and focus on larger-sized phones going forward instead. As per leaks, the iPhone 13 mini will be the last of the mini phones.
We’re expecting a 6.1-inch iPhone 14, a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max, with the larger 6.7-inch iPhone replacing the mini model.
An investors report from JP Morgan Chase claims that Apple’s upcoming iPhone 14 Pro models could come with a high-end titanium alloy chassis design. This would be the first time that Apple has used this material for an iPhone, but they have already started using it in their watches so what do you think?
The durability of titanium is unrivaled by any other material. It’s stronger than steel and aluminum, as well as being more corrosion resistant and more scratch-resistant.
Starting in 2022, Apple’s latest iPhone models are likely to be adopting a new cooling system that will keep them cool under heavy stress. The VC (vapor chamber) thermal design has been seen in phones from companies like Samsung and LG, which use it because of its efficiency at keeping devices cooler when they’re running faster processing speeds or connecting through 5G networking technologies respectively.
It is unclear if the vapor chamber thermal system will meet Apple’s high requirements, but Apple is working on improving it and high-end models could adopt it in the near future.
According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, The new iPhones are expected to come with an updated Ultra-Wide camera and telephoto lens for better photos. This upgrade might also be in the form of a 7 element versus 6-elements on previous models, which will allow more light into your picture while maintaining clarity at longer distances.
Kuo believes that the 2022 Pro iPhones will come with a 48-megapixel Wide camera, which would be an improvement over their current 12MP model and allow for 8K video recording capabilities.
The iPhone 14 Pro models have a 48-megapixel camera that’s also capable of taking 12mp shots. This is done through pixel binning, which merges data from multiple smaller pixels on the image sensor into one “super-pixel” for improved low light sensitivity!
With this feature, your iPhone 14 Pro can take full 48-megapixel photos in situations with good lighting but when lightning is poor it will use pixel binning for a higher quality 12-megapixel photo that takes advantage of the 48-megapixel lens.
Kuo believes that with the new 8K video recording feature on upcoming iPhones, users will be able to create videos in higher resolution that are more suitable for augmented reality devices such as Apple’s AR headset that Apple has in development for 2022.
iPhones are always improving with each new A-series chip, and this time around it’s no exception. The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to come equipped with Apple’s latest A-series chip called the A16!
The third major enhancement of the 5-nanometer family will be a next-generation A-series chip designed for iPhone 14 Pro models that are built on TSMC’s “NP4” process.
The upcoming iPhones are likely to have 6GB of RAM, which would be the same amount of RAM available in the iPhone 13 Pro models.
Car Crash Detection
In 2022, Apple is working to release a new feature for the iPhone and Watch that will help users identify car accidents. This system utilizes sensors like accelerometers in order to measure spikes in gravitational force. when there’s an impact due to its gravity-powered measurements!
With a car crash detected, the iPhone or Apple Watch will automatically dial emergency services to get help. Since it’s planned for 2022, this could be a feature designed for the iPhone 14 models and the Apple Watch Series 8, though it’s not likely to be limited to those devices. This could be an expansion of Fall Detection features that are already in existing models with iOS 12 and watchOS 13 respectively.
Snapdragon X65 Modem
The new iPhone 14 models are nearly set to be released and among them is a model with an exciting modem. The Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 10 Gigabit 5Gmodem/antenna system for smartphones has been announced as well, making this device not only fast but also future-proofed!
The Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 enables some satellite connectivity features, and alongside the modem, Apple plans to implement satellite-based emergency features. This will allow them to provide more features that are not available through cellular networks alone- such as emergency response service for when your phone has no signal or you’re traveling abroad where coverage may be spotty at best.
Emergency Message via Satellite is a new way to communicate in emergencies when there’s no cellular or WiFi signal available. It will be a new communications protocol alongside SMS and iMessage, featuring gray message bubbles that limit the length of each text — just like WhatsApp messages!
With these new features, users will be able to report major emergencies like plane crashes and fires using satellite networks. These developments are still in development but are due out by 2022 at the earliest!
The iPhone 14 models are expected to feature WiFi 6E connectivity, according to an Apple analyst from Kuo Mings-Chi. This new wireless standard will allow for high-speed transmission necessary in AR and VR experiences as well as Mixed Reality headsets which could come out by 2022.
WiFi 6E takes advantage of the 6GHz band in addition to the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands to increase bandwidth and cut down on interference, The WiFi6 specification provides improved performance with low latency, so you can surf without interruption no matter where you are!
With the iPhone 13 Pro models, Apple added a new 1TB storage tier. And with this year’s iPhone 14 upgrade coming up soon it seems that they may even increase their capacity even further to 2 TB! This rumor comes from an unreliability source so keep your eyes peeled for more reliable information before making any conclusions about what could be next year’s model sets.
No Physical SIM Slot
With the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro models, Apple may launch without a physical SIM slot. Instead, they’ll offer eSIM cards only. Apple is allegedly advising major U.S. carriers to prepare for the launch of eSIM-only smartphones by 2022, which suggests some iPhone 14 models may be the first to come without a SIM slot.
With the iPhone 13, Apple provided some models without a nano-SIM in the box, with cellular plans instead of being able to be activated using eSIM. An eSIM allows for cellular plans to be added to a device without using a nano-SIM.
eSIM functionality is not available in all countries, so iPhones sold in some areas will need to continue to offer a nano-SIM slot. In countries where a SIM-free iPhone is available, it may be optional, with consumers still able to choose a version with a SIM. There are more than 60 countries that support eSIM, with a list available on Apple’s website.
iPhone 14 Pro Launch Date
The iPhone 14 models are expected to be introduced at an event that’s likely going to take place in September 2022, if Apple follows previous launch timelines.
More on the iPhone 14
Apple will launch a total of four flagship iPhones in 2022, and the iPhone 14 Pro models will be sold alongside more affordable iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max devices. For more on what to expect from the entire iPhone 14 lineup, we have a dedicated iPhone 14 roundup with even more information.
