Prices of iPhone 14 models has been again been leaked. Starting with the base model, iPhone 14 price will start at the same price tag of iPhone 13 at $799 (around Rs 61,000). Apple will phase out mini variants starting this year, so iPhone 13 mini is being replaced with a more expensive iPhone 14 Max. The new iPhone 14 Max price is tipped to start at $899 (around Rs 68,500). Coming to the top model, iPhone 14 Pro Max price will start at $1,199 (around Rs 91,400).
Apple is tipped to finally come with always-on displays with iPhone 14 series.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman suggested that the Pro models will come with the always-on display. Also, there are high chances iPhone 14 series launch could be delayed due to lockdown in China and the current ongoing global chip shortage. The production of the upcoming iPhone 14 series could be delayed and affect the launch timeline.
Production schedule is currently disrupted due to China’s month-long lockdowns and it will result iPhone 14 series to launch later in the year and not in September.
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro renders have been leaked by top tipster Jon Prosser leaking out the complete display and the camera changes.
The new screen will be slightly larger with a center pill-shaped notch and a circular camera cutout, ditching the old wide notch originally debuted with the iPhone X. iPhone 14 Pro will sport a more squarish design along with a triple camera layout, said to be 57 percent bigger than the predecessor.
Larger rear camera array on iPhone 14 Pro may have forced Apple to modify the corner radius. iPhone 14 models are leaked to not have the speculated under display Touch ID sensors.
iPhone 14 lineup was expected to come with an in-display fingerprint sensor in 2022 alongside the Face ID unlocking feature. iPhone 14 Pro models this year will have a triple rear camera setup featuring a larger 48MP wide lens, 12MP ultra-wide and a telephoto lens, as leaked in the new report.
Previously popular analyst Ming-Chi Kuo confirmed the same. iPhone 14 series will feature four models this year, but without the ‘mini’ version.
We will see a new inclusion in the series, but it’s tipped to be iPhone 14 Max, which probably will be a toned-down iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Pro.
So, there will be a total of four models under the new series: iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, and no iPhone 14 mini. The iPhone 14 Pro models have been leaked to support 120Hz displays along with 6GB RAM.
Apple iPhone 14 models are also said to come in eSIM-only and nano-SIM options with eSIM-only service in India with Airtel, Jio and Vi offering eSIM support.
The rumor mill earlier suggested not iPhone 15 series in 2023, but only this year we could see iPhone 14 modes without any SIM card slot, but as per the development, Apple will offer both options: physical nano-SIM or eSIM-only variant. In India, three of the major carriers, Airtel, Jio and Vi offer eSIM service.
Coming to chips, Apple iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will retain the same Apple A15 Bionic chip which currently powers the iPhone 13 series and iPhone SE 3, while the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will get the new Apple A16 Bionic chip.
