After the iPhone 13 is before the iPhone 14. The current device has not even been delivered to all pre-orderers and there is already speculation about the next model.
The analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International Securities is one of the most cited experts and is considered to be accurate with his oracles. He gets a lot of his information from the environment of Apple’s Chinese suppliers.
No notch thanks to new camera technology
Accordingly, a new camera module will be used on the display side of the 2022 model (iPhone 14). While a TrueDepth system works with the 13er, the successor should be equipped with a pinhole camera and a so-called hole-punch solution on the front. Advantage: The notch for the lenses and sensors could be omitted, thereby enlarging the screen. Face ID would also be done via such a sensor located below the display.
Generally represents Kuo major design adjustments in prospect. The rather marginal optical adjustments to the iPhone 13 suggested that the creative minds at Apple were already busy with the iPhone 14. The camera area, which currently stands out a few millimeters, could also be integrated into the housing.
No more iPhone mini
Other rumors said that Apple will drop the iPhone Mini again next year. Instead, a simple Max version is on offer so that there will also be four iPhones: iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. There are two sizes to choose from: 6.1-inch and 6, 7-inch (rounded).
