iPhone 14: another new leaks


2 min read

We have already seen the CAD renders of the iPhone 14 series, now it seems that the design is close enough to the final one to start producing metal molds, which could be used in the production of protective masks. Photos of just such molds have begun circulating on Weibo, confirming that Apple will reduce the size options for its main series from three to two.

As you can see from the labels, there will be two 6.1 ”models and two 6.7” models. So we can expect the shutdown of the mini model and the presentation of the new Max model. In keeping with tradition, only Pro models will have a third camera on the back – a telephoto module.

Generation 14 will lack periscope cameras, but will reportedly have an upgraded main camera with a 48 MP sensor. This should allow 8K video recording and better digital zoom. Note that analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that only Pro models will get a new sensor.

The camera protrusions on the two 14 Pro models are expected to be larger and thicker than the 13 Pro likely to accommodate the new camera hardware.


Non-Pro models may stick to the same camera hardware, but it goes beyond that – we’ve seen rumors that it will use the Apple A15 chipset from last year, while the Pro and Pro Max will get the new A16. This new chip should bring extra processing power to record 8K video, while the old A15 potentially reduces prices.

The most important changes of this generation may be in the front, not the back. The iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, in any case, are expected to move from a notch design to a double-hole design. The iPhone 14 and 14 Max will probably keep the notch, but they should at least get a refresh rate of 120 Hz.

But the presentation is still relatively far away, so much more can change until the final version.
