We are yet to receive iPhone 13 in 2021, but there are already rumours churning about iPhone 14, which is going to arrive by 2022.
There’s a plenty of time before iPhone 14 to be released and a lot of things could change within this period.
A tech giant like Apple is always trying to do something innovative and something new. Therefore, nothing is certain. The information we are going to share in this post are entirely based on rumours and leaks.
iPhone 14 Leaks/ Rumors
Currently, there are four rumours on iPhone 14. But before we start, we will admit that we haven’t heard much. We are just going to share what we know and what we want to see in the next generation iPhone 14.
- Apple Might Drop The Notch For iPhone 14
If you are into tech and gadgets, you must be aware of this rumour. It is suggested that Apple might ditch the notch in iPhone 14.
Other smartphone companies are already done with notches years ago. It seems like Apple is set out to follow the footsteps of its competitors.
Apple has retained the notch to keep the front-facing sensors hidden. But rumours suggest that 2022 iPhone may not have the notch anymore. Instead, Apple may include a punch-hole for the front or selfie camera. As this point, it is hard to tell what they will do with the sensors.
The sensors may get minimised or get a smaller notch. They may also choose place it alongside the front camera in an elongated punch-hole.
Many of them also suggest that Apple might take the extra mile and hide its sensors completely under the display. They may do so to stay ahead of other smartphone companies.
Right now, it’s hard to tell what will become of the sensors if they remove the notch. This information is entirely based on rumours and not yet confirmed. So let’s not get our hopes high.
- iPhone 14 Could Use MagSafe Charger
According to a patent, Apple may use MagSafe charger for future iPhone, including iPhone 14.
It is expected that the MagSafe charger would be same as the one launched for MacBook laptops. It would operate the same way that the MacBook chargers did.
If this is true, then the charger would magnetically clip to the bottom of the phone and break away easily. If iPhone implements this charging method, then it will lose the lightning cable, which has been a patent for a long time.
Introducing a new mode of charging for iPhones sounds like a great idea.It’s high time Apple did something innovative with their phone charging system. Users have been using the lightning cable for more than a decade.
The MagSafe charger is not only a convenient charging solution, but it is also the fastest. Should Apple implement this charging method, it could give a major boost to future iPhones.
- 2022 iPhone Range To Be All 5G
We have already stepped into the 5G era. In a smartphone market where other phone companies are already introducing new 5G models, Apple is bound to game up their 5G plans.
According to rumours, all 2022 iPhone models are expected to get 5G. Apple introduced 5G devices in 2020, but they might have plans to dip their feet entirely in 5G smartphones.
- iPhone 14 Glasses
This rumour doesn’t sound very convincing at the moment. But you never know what Apple is up to or what’s their next move?
Based on sources, Apple Glasses will be frame-holders for iPhones. This is a new functionality that iPhone 14 might have.
At the time of writing, we don’t have enough information on this. But if this turns out to be true, then Apple Glasses will use iPhone’s display in place of binocular lenses.
There are also rumours that Apple might release a VR headset in 2022. But right now, we cannot confirm any of this. We will have to wait and see what iPhone 14 has to offer in 2022.
What to expect from 2022’s iPhone?
We are a year away from the release of iPhone 14, which means there’s a lot of time to make innovations.
Right now, we don’t know much about iPhone 14 or what it will offer to users. As far as prices are concerned, it is expected to depend on the storage, size and features of the new iPhone.
Just like every other iPhone model, iPhone 14 is expected to be available in different variants. This would include iPhone 14 mini, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14. The prices will vary based on the variant.
It is expected that iPhone 14 mini will fall under the affordable category. It is expected to carry a price tag of $699. Similarly, the standard iPhone 14 could start at $799.
The higher range of iPhone 14 will include iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, where the former could be priced at $999 and the latter could be $1099 or more.
However, these are only expected prices and they could all change for one reason or the other. Let’s say, if Apple introduces a new feature, the prices of the phones will automatically go up.
If you wondering what would be the release date of iPhone 14, then it’s just a waste of time. Based on their history of releases, Apple usually launches their new iPhone models in September or October.
But this time, we cannot be certain of anything. This is mainly because of the on-going pandemic. If everything goes as planned, then iPhone 14 is most likely to arrive by the fourth Friday of September. But the launch of the new iPhone model could be delayed due to Covid-19. So you will have to wait for Apple to make an official announcement.
Apple iPhone 14 is the most anticipated phone right now. Even though the release of iPhone 14 is a year away, users are already getting excited about it. We are surely expecting many great things from the 2022’s iPhone.
