Apple fans, pencil September 13 in your calendars. That’s when the iPhone 14 event has been tipped to take place. And we can expect a whole lot more.
There’s definitely some credibility to this rumor, as Apple tends to make iPhone-related announcements in September; the iPhone 13 range was revealed last year on September 24. Much like the recent Apple events, we can expect the showcase to be a virtual one, complete with slick videos and on-stage demonstrations.
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro
We expect to see the iPhone 14, which is said to be comparable to the iPhone 13, but with a larger screen size in the shape of the iPhone 14 Max; there will supposedly be no tiny version, at this September event. Both phones are expected to use the A15 Bionic chipset, but Apple will use the A16 moniker.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are expected to be the phones with the most significant improvements. The controversial display notch is likely to be replaced by pill and punch-hole shaped cuts for the front-facing camera and Face ID sensors. A new A16 Bionic chip is expected, as well as camera enhancements, including a 48MP main camera.
Pill-shaped selfie camera
The new selfie camera will be in the shape of a pill. Apple is said to be relying on the Korean company LG to build it. Apple says it will have to pay three times the price of the selfie cameras on the iPhone 13 Pro models. The camera has an excellent autofocus system. In addition, it has an F1.9 aperture capable of receiving more light. The depth effect of selfies may also be improved. The quality of the video will also be much better.
The iPhone 14 Max is expected to have a 6.7-inch screen. This change is in line with the perception that phones with larger screens are in high demand. According to Consumer Research Intelligence Partners (CRIP), the iPhone 13 Mini accounts for only 3% of sales. Also, the iPhone 12 Mini did not sell well.
USB-C for the new series
Some reports suggest that Apple may not yet test the EU’s patience. The EU has defined that all smartphones must have USB-C ports and data cables. Therefore, it is predicted that iPhones with USB-C ports will be launched this time.
Also, what can be expected?
On September 13, in addition to the new iPhones, the AirPods Pro 2, Apple Watch Series 8, and SE may also be released. New MacBooks may also be introduced.
