Everything we already know about the iPhone 14 – Belgium iPhone

Available models, screen appearance or even increased sale price, we tell you everything about the future iPhone 14.

Slowly but surely, we are getting closer to the likely release date of the new iPhone. Entitled, in all likelihood, iPhone 14, it should, in many ways, renew the range and delight Apple customers. Rumors have been circulating about him for several weeks. Let’s take stock of all the information spread here and there and its veracity.

Disappearance of the mini model.

Since the iPhone 12, Apple has multiplied iPhones like bread. In 2020, then in the midst of a pandemic, Apple presented during its back to school speech the latest novelty in the iPhone universe, the iPhone 12 mini. A much smaller model, since it measures 5.4 inches, compared to 6.7 inches of the largest model, the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

Unfortunately for Apple, the format and the price, both smaller, will not have managed to find a clientele. The very uncompetitive battery was probably the number one culprit.

This disinterest in the mini range would thus push Apple to review its formula. So we would be left with four different models, but an iPhone Max would replace the mini model. With the demand for large smartphones visibly important, Apple could find its account there.

Therefore, there would be 4 different models this year:

  • iPhone 14: 6.12 inches
  • iPhone 14 Max: 6.69 inches
  • iPhone 14 Pro: 6.12 inches
  • iPhone 14 Pro Max: 6.69 inches

A notch half replaced

Here, too, you have to go back a few years to understand Apple’s choice to want to evolve. In 2017, Apple introduced the iPhone X for the 15th anniversary of the iPhone brand. A smartphone with a much larger screen, but it had an ugly flaw: a notch at the top of the screen. Very soon, the notch will be teased on social networks.

However, it will be necessary to wait four years before the notch is modified. With the iPhone 13 Pro, Apple will cut its size in half. A slight modification, however, that leaves users unsatisfied.

This year, we could say goodbye to the notch. Well, not quite… The iPhone 14 iPhone 14 Max will retain that ugly notch, while the Pro models will be reduced to a punch and a pill. The camera would be included in the punch, while sensors such as the infrared camera, the proximity sensor or the ambient light sensor will go to the tablet.

A supercharged camera

Here too, Apple should significantly differentiate the Pro model from the non-Pro model of the iPhone 14. Already with the iPhone 13, we noticed that the cheaper model lacked Night mode, a telephoto lens, and that the optical and digital zooms were absent or of poorer quality. . The 12 MP sensor on both models would still be relevant, but only on the regular iPhone 14.

In fact, only the iPhone 14 Pro would switch to a supercharged lens, with 48 MP. Some rumors point to 4 groups of 12 MP to improve dynamic range and enhance shadows. Video capture would go to 8K, a famous leap forward for a smartphone with a head. Finally, rumors agree that the front camera will be able to autofocus, which is particularly handy for FaceTime calls or Portrait mode.

Not all housed in the same boat by the chip

This is the great debate about the next iPhone. Almost all leakers agree that the new Apple Silicon chip, which should be called A16 Bionic, will not be available in all iPhones. Only the Pro models will get it, while the iPhone 14 and 14 Max will be powered by the older processor, the A15 Bionic.

This would be mainly due to Apple’s desire to further differentiate the Pro and normal models. There would be a real market for higher-end models, the sales figures attest, and Apple would obviously like to mark the occasion with the iPhone 14.

Very few new features

Apple very rarely, in recent years, has given new features to its new devices. It is mainly iOS that manages the software and therefore the functions of the devices.

However, the iPhone 14 should stand out from its predecessor regarding a feature that has been highly anticipated on the iPhone for years: Always-On. Introduced on Apple Watch with Series 5. Keeps the time and date on the screen, even when the phone is locked, without consuming more battery power. In fact, the refresh rate of the iPhone 14 Pro could drop to 1 Hz, which would allow the iPhone to save resources while displaying the time.

A higher selling price

The iPhone 14 will be more expensive than the iPhone 13. This sentence is probably the one dreaded by all Apple customers, and it could be in September. The current world situation, which combines a shortage of components and an economic crisis, would force Apple to revise the price of all its iPhone upwards.

Concretely, we are talking here about an increase of one, or even several hundred euros. The Pro models would be $100 more expensive ($1,099 and $1,199), while the regular models would increase by… $200, thus going up to $899 and $999.

launch delay

Finally, and this is what everyone wants to know: the release date. At this point, there shouldn’t be any surprises, as the iPhone 14 and 14 Max are scheduled to land before the back-to-school keynote in mid-September. In all likelihood, we are even talking about September 13 for the keynote address.

On the other hand, the situation is more complicated for the Pro models. It is impossible to know, at the moment, if they will leave at the same time as their little brothers or if they will arrive late. Some leakers insist that Apple is struggling to manage inventory, while others point out that mass production is about to start, so there will be no delays…
