Even though the iPhone 14 launch announcement is still months away, there’s never a boring moment when it comes to rumours and leaks about Apple’s upcoming iPhones. This time, even before the iPhone 13 was released, leaks about the next-generation iPhone 14 began to circulate, and fresh advancements have arisen on a regular basis.
iPhone 14 Launch ahead
The iPhone 14 series is expected to have significant design and hardware changes. Several leaks have indicated that the device would have a punch-hole design.
However, according to a recent source, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max may include a “hole plus pill design.” The iPhone 14 launch is expected to have a smaller camera bump.
There are rumoured to be four iPhone 14 models in the works. While the iPhone 14 Pro and the 14 Pro are expected to have 6.1-inch displays, the iPhone 14 Max and the iPhone14ProMax have 6.7-inch screens. The 120Hz screens are expected only on the Pro variants. The introduction of a 48-megapixel main camera on the iPhone 14 series might be another huge shift.

Features and specifications
One of the most anticipated iPhone lineups in recent memory is the iPhone 14 series. However, only if the leaks that have been emerging are real. In the coming months, Apple is expected to make a minor tweak to its current iPhone lineup. According to the rumour mill, Apple is considering scrapping the iPhone mini-series and replacing it with a full-sized iPhone. As a result, the next iPhones might contain the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Max as well as the iPhone Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Whether these names will appear on Apple’s final products is still an open question.
A week before the iPhone 13 went on sale, tipster Jon Prosser unveiled the iPhone 14. Since then, other renderings and prototypes have surfaced, all pointing to a similar design to that displayed by Prosser. However, according to analyst Ross Young, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro would include a “hole plus pill design.” According to a tweet, the front camera will be located in the hole, and Face-ID technology will be located in the pill. This design was initially brought to our notice by that same Twitter user.
iPhone 14 will have a single central punch-hole camera, according to earlier leaks from Prosser design. As a result, the notch, which we’ve seen since 2017, maybe go away. With no camera module or camera sensors laying flush on the back panel, it seems to be totally flat. Apple’s iPhone 4 appears to have had an influence on the design of the phone’s titanium frame.
OLED display with 1170×2532 resolution and 60Hz refresh rate is expected in the iPhone 14, according to tipster Ross Young. A 120Hz refresh rate will be available on the iPhone 14 Pro with a panel of a similar size. For its part, Apple’s top-of-the-line iPhone 14 Pro Max might have a 6.68-inch OLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. As predicted, the rumoured iPhone 14 Max will have the same display as its predecessor, the Mini, but with a 60Hz refresh rate.
The iPhone 14 series will use a new processor like it does each year. The A16 Bionic chipset is expected to be released. The chipset may be manufactured using a 4nm or 3nm manufacturing technique, according to rumours. As a result, TSMC is struggling to produce chipsets at the 4nm and 3nm levels, which might lead to Apple continuing to use the 5nm chipset.
It’s now possible to store up to 1TB of data on the iPhone 13 and 13 Plus. According to recent reports, the iPhone 14 Pro’s storage will be increased to 2TB. In addition, the RAM might be increased to 8GB on Pro versions and up to 6GB on standard models by the firm.
One of the iPhone 14 Pro’s rumoured features is an upgraded front-facing camera. There are rumours Apple is going to move from its 12-megapixel camera to a 48-megapixel one. According to the manufacturer, the camera can record 8K footage. TrendForce, a Taiwanese market research organisation, backs up the findings. As a result, there may be something here worth claiming.
iPhone 14 Release Date
In terms of iPhone releases, Apple has been rather constant. September is the month in which Apple holds its annual iPhone event. The new iPhone 13 also debuted in September, following in the footsteps of its predecessor. In other words, the iPhone 14 might show next year around this time.
iPhone 14 pricing in India (expected)
In a recent leak, tipster LeaksApplePro disclosed iPhone 14 series price information. It’s expected that the iPhone 14 will cost the same as the iPhone 13 did last year, at $799 (roughly Rs 59,990). For the iPhone 14 Max, a price of $899 has been leaked (roughly Rs 66,990).
On the other hand, the cost of Pro models is likely to rise significantly over time. The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to cost $1,099 (approximately Rs 81,700), while the iPhone Pro Max is expected to cost $1,199 (about Rs 89,700).
