Even before Apple launched the iPhone 13, the iPhone 14 was trending on Twitter, and the gossips for Apple’s 2022 smartphone are just getting started. The iPhone 14’s release date, price, and other specifications and features are all unknown at this time. So far, the most popular rumors include a new design with a notch-less display. Yeah, we’ve heard that one before but this time, it comes with a different narrative. It introduced a range of significant upgrades, including a hole-punch front camera, under-display Touch ID, a more durable titanium alloy body, the removal of the chunky rear camera bump, a shakeup of the four-phone lineup with new screen sizes, and the death of the iPhone Mini. According to recent rumors, the iPhone 14 may also include Wi-Fi 6E.
Will there still be four phones in the iPhone 14 range?
While name speculation isn’t as relevant to Apple’s 2022 lineup, reports predict a little shift in naming standards, with an iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Max, and iPhone 14 Pro Max, with “Pro” denoting higher-end features and “Max” denoting the larger screen size.
Will there be bigger screens for iPhone 14 range phones?
The base model of Apple’s last two iPhone lines had the same 6.1-inch display, with the Pro Max having a 6.7-inch display. According to the Nikkei Asian Review rumor from July, Apple will continue with these screen sizes for the iPhone 14, and will not include the 5.4-inch Mini. According to reports, sales of the iPhone 12 Mini have been slow, so it’s no surprise that Apple will phase out the small phone in 2022.
It’s too early for any iPhone 14 release date anticipation, but we expect Apple will host its annual fall iPhone event in September 2022, as it does practically every year, with the phones following shortly after, generally on the following Friday. When launching a new design or size, Apple will sometimes stagger release dates for specific models. As a result, there’s a chance that the iPhone 14 lineup will have multiple release dates.
