iPhone 14: price, release date and technical data sheet of Apple’s next smartphone

The iPhone 13 has only recently arrived on the market. But, like every year, fans and observers are racing for information, details, and leaks capable of understanding the future of the Apple brand and the arrival of the iPhone 14.

What will Apple’s next device look like? What will its characteristics be? As the year 2022 is just beginning, the next generation of smartphones from the Apple brand is already stirring up all the speculation. In this article, you will find all the information and rumors about the upcoming iPhone 14 phone. Complete overview.

What is the iPhone 14?

The first information about the iPhone 14 had already started circulating even before the iPhone 13 was available. Like every year, Apple and its boss Tim Cook should release a new range of smartphones in the fall. Like many smartphones and new equipment designed by the Palo Alto company, it is also an opportunity to test and unveil important technological innovations.

It now remains to know which ones will be selected for this model. We must keep in mind that this is a very important release for Apple, especially from a financial point of view. In addition, the company cultivates a perfectionist image, so we can think that the iPhone 14 should not be an exception in this area.

Which technical sheet for the iPhone 14?

The first question is that of screen size. According to main estimates and information from consultant Ross Youngthe iPhone 14 and 14 Pro would have a 6.1-inch panel (6.12 inches exactly for the Pro model) and the iPhone 14 Max and 14 Pro Max would have a screen with a diagonal of 6.7 inches (6.69 inches exactly for the Pro Max model) .

The screen would be an OLED panel but with different technology depending on the model. Thus, the iPhone 14 Pro could have an LTPO screen with 120 Hz refresh, against LTPS with 60 Hz refresh for the classic model. According to analyst Ross Young, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will benefit from an improvement in ProMotion technology. This will be able to lower the refresh rate of the screen down to 1 Hz. This progress should provide a gain in autonomy and even prepare the ground for an Always-on mode.

Bad news, however, if we look at what awaits us “under the hood”. There will probably be no chip engraved in 3 nm finesse. Apple is here a victim of its supplier, TSMC, which is late on its forecasts. The A16 Bionic 3 nm SoC could therefore not be ready next September. It is undoubtedly an innovation that will wait until 2023.

We can therefore predict that the A16 Bionic chip will use the same 5 nm+ architecture as the A15 Bionic chip.

We should have the right to two hearts Avalanche and 4 Blizzard. The first two are dedicated to the heaviest tasks, the other two to basic tasks. Based on Apple’s latest developments, the performance gain can be estimated at 20% .

And for the first time, Apple will divide its range in two: the iPhone Pro will benefit from the new A16 Bionic chip while the normal models will still run on that of 2021, the A15 Bionic.

A choice that is explained by a shortage of components that are still disabling, but also a well-honed marketing strategy to encourage the purchase of Pro models.

Finally, Apple should keep the Lightning charging port rather than USB-C. The iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will benefit from a new generation for this port, with speeds approaching those of USB 3.0 (5 Gbps), against 480 Mbps on current models.

What autonomy for the next Apple smartphone?

Owners of the first iPhone probably still remember it. Autonomy has long been a real pet peeve for the Cupertino brand.

The situation has of course changed a great deal in more than a decade. When we see the brilliant performance of the iPhone 13, we now claim at least the same.

Which camera for the iPhone 14?

Even if you don’t usually buy a phone just for its photographic capabilities, it has become, over the years, a central element. For this new model, Apple would offer a 48 MP module, which is 4 times more than what we have today.

A level that would have something to seduce even the most demanding. This sensor could also make it possible to make films in 8K. In addition, an ultra-wide-angle module should also be there. Finally, a telephoto lens with optical zoom is insistently announced for the iPhone 14 Pro.

Note that this 48 MP sensor would only be reserved for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max , the non-Pro versions would once again lose out by staying on a 12 MP sensor.

Regarding the front sensor, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo speaks of an f/1.9 aperture sensor as well as the contribution of autofocus.

For comparison, current iPhone models have an aperture of f/2.2 and do not offer autofocus. In concrete terms, the front sensor will be able to capture more light, focus more precisely and therefore allow more natural portrait photos (with background blur).

Other unofficial sources speak of a more elaborate camera designed by LG and initially planned for the iPhone 15. This would incorporate autofocus and would be three times more expensive than the previous ones.

What design for the iPhone 14?

Since the debut of the iPhone, the question of design has always been central. Almost no model was an exception to this tradition.

But it is also an opportunity to innovate, to change materials or our relationship to new technologies. Experts note, however, that innovation from this point of view has been limited in recent years . Can the iPhone 14 bring a visual revolution?

According to an investor report from JP Morgan Chase , the iPhone 14 could have a new titanium finish, which would replace stainless steel. It is lighter and would thus reduce the weight of the devices. A chemical solution intended to avoid scratches would also be in development. Note that this is already the material used for the Apple Watch. In addition, the volume buttons could regain a rounded shape, as we saw on the iPhone 5S. A real throwback.

According to journalist Mark Gurman, we could be entitled to an iPhone 14 Pro with the Touch ID sensor directly integrated into the smartphone screen . The screen would also be signed LG.

Following the latest leaks from Saran Byte on Twitter, we now have some concrete information on the design of the iPhone 14:

  • The two non-Pro models will still have the notch while the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro max will show a pill and punch mark at the top of the screen for the front camera.
  • The Pro versions will have much thinner contours and edges than the normal versions.

At the rear, the prominent photo block could be even more so as a result of the new 48 MP sensor. In return, the new mobile from Apple would be a little thicker.

What price for the iPhone 14?

In this register, everything will mainly depend on the choice that Apple will make. We now have confirmation that the Mini model is no longer being considered and will be replaced by the iPhone 14 Max. According to the always very well-informed Mark Gurman from Bloomberg , the latter should be offered around 900 dollars .

But the shortage of components could push Apple to raise its prices even further, pushing the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max to $1,100 and $1,200, respectively. And given the exchange rate currently practiced by Apple, the Pro models should therefore be purchased at prices between $1200 and $1300.

However, the most difficult for the moment to predict is the question of stocks. As we know, the technological world is still very strongly impacted by the shortage of components. How will this evolve in the coming months?

We could see Sony abandon the production of the PS5 and produce the 4 to adapt to the circumstances. But in the case of Apple, we can rather fear that the price increase will be passed on to consumers. In addition, the American company would also be faced with a rise in production prices.

 

Glimmer of hope, Ming-Chi Kuo announces a top-of-the-range model sold at 900 dollars . That’s a considerable drop.

What is the iPhone 14 release date?

As for the timing, Apple has not yet officially communicated. However, we can make a quick deduction from the habits of the brand. The official presentation of the brand’s devices always takes place in September.

Then, the pre-orders are opened very quickly, just like the delivery or the purchase of the models. It should be noted, however, that 2020 was an exception with the start of the Covid-19 pandemic which had turned the calendar upside down. Can this happen again in 2022? It is still too early to make predictions.

What can we expect from the iPhone 14?

We can hope that this new iPhone is truly more successful than its predecessor with a refresh rate and a better screen as well as a new design, particularly at the level of the notch at the top of the screen.

Will there be an iPhone 14 Max?

We should have several versions of the iPhone 14 next September, including an iPhone Pro and an iPhone 14 Max. So exit the iPhone mini which will not have convinced the firm at the apple.

Which iOS for the iPhone 14?

One would think that the iOS that will make up the iPhone 14 is the new iOS 16 whose release date would be scheduled for next summer. Thus, we can think of a possible redesign of the Apple system with many updates.
