It would seem that the iPhone 13 was released quite recently, and that the iPhone 14, which is expected to debut in the autumn of 2022 as the best iPhone of all time, should be shrouded in secret. Thankfully, this is not the case, and we will share what we know with you below. We eventually gather only insider and analyst information that “leaks” into the network.
iPhone 14 Release date:
The first question many people ask is; when is the iPhone 14 coming out? Well, the iPhone 14 release date is almost certain. The event will occur in September 2022. The precise date is uncertain, but we think that a brand-new iPhone will be available for purchase after September 20.
We may also discuss value with relative certainty. If the iPhone 14 costs more than the iPhone 12 and 13 if you compare new iPhone, the difference will be negligible (no more than $10 to $20). The 64 GB variant will likely no longer be available.
iPhone 14: skipping the mini for the more affordable Max
In 2022, there will once again be four iPhone 14 versions. However, this time there will be significant changes: the model with the smallest screen will be discontinued, and the version with one of the biggest screens will be introduced. Currently available iPhone models, except the “budget” SE.
This year, though, the scenario will be rather different. Since its beginnings, Apple’s demand for the tiny form of the iPhone has been the lowest; this model accounts for just approximately 5 percent of sales. Due to this horrible state of things, the corporation has chosen to replace the weakest link with the strongest one by the autumn of 2022.
Specifically, instead of a tiny, the iPhone Max will be added to the line; it will be a smartphone with the same huge screen as the apple iPhone 14 pro max, but the new iPhone price will be around $200-$300 less expensive. As a consequence, Apple will demonstrate in 2022:
6.1 inch – iPhone (basic model) 6.7-inch – iPhone Max
6.1-inch – iPhone Pro
6.7-inch – iPhone Pro Max
All iPhone 2022 models will include enhanced cameras, however, the degree of improvement will vary.
The iPhone 14 will include a 12 MP primary camera with a larger matrix.
The iPhone 14 Pro will include a 48 MP primary camera with 8K recording and record-setting big pixels for pixel binning.
All models will be upgraded with ultra-wide-angle and front-facing cameras.
The primary camera is on ordinary models. In the iPhone 14 basic model, the primary camera will have comparable or identical specifications to the module found in the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max variants.
This camera has the same resolution of 12 megapixels, but its matrix is bigger, increasing the pixel size from 1.7 to 1.9 micrometers. That is almost 12 percent. This may assist enhance the quality of nighttime and low-light photography.
The primary camera on Pro models
The primary camera of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will soon acquire a sensor with a record-breaking resolution of 48 megapixels. Remember that Apple last altered the resolution of its cameras seven years ago. The iPhone 6S then acquired 12 megapixels compared to the iPhone 6’s 8 megapixels.
Now, in 2022, we anticipate a leap to 48 megapixels. In the world of Android, such numbers are commonplace, but for Apple, this is uncharted territory. Moreover, Apple intends to support its 48 megapixels with a very big matrix, which promises to be far larger than the matrices used in the majority of Android handsets.
The baseline pixel size of the iPhone 14 Pro will be a modest 1.2 microns, but in low-light conditions, they will be able to merge four pixels into one (a process known as binning), generating enormous cells of 2.4 microns. These pixels are 26 percent bigger than what the iPhone 13 Pro Max currently offers and are vital for photography. Apple’s advancement in pixel size by more than a quarter will be the most important in the last decade.
As for the significance of 48 megapixels, in addition to detailing, they at least open up the iPhone’s capacity to record video in a grandiose 8K quality. In most Android devices, this is not the case as, in addition to 48 megapixels, an incredibly powerful CPU is also required here.
The ultra-wide-angle camera will be upgraded in both the standard and Pro models. Its resolution will stay the same at 12 megapixels, and the size of the sensor will not change, but the new camera will include a lens with seven lenses as opposed to the present five or six lenses (Pro models). This will assist to “pump” the qualities of the lens by roughly 20 percent, and in addition, it will enable you to better cope with distortion while shooting.
Specifications for the primary (left) and ultra-wide cameras of the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini.
There is still optimism that PDAF is concentrating on the ultra-wide-angle module, which was exclusive to the iPhone 13 Pro last year and will be standard on all models by 2022. We remind you that it is required for macro photography and videography of good quality.
The front camera will not stay untouched, however, unlike with prior cameras, sources do not yet have definitive information on the front camera. However, we anticipate that the improvements to the front camera will be substantial. Possible advances include a new focusing mechanism, a wider viewing angle, and a greatly enhanced resolution.
However, neither the upgrade of the telephoto camera in the Pro models nor its presence in the more affordable iPhone 14 models should be anticipated. Due to this, enhanced optical zoom, which is currently available on several Android flagships, is not anticipated in upcoming models.
Apple has increased the telephoto and optical zoom on the iPhone 13 Pro from 2.5x to 3x. However, no modifications are anticipated for the iPhone 14, despite the fact that rivals have already mastered 5 and even 10x bars.
iPhone 14 RAM
The iPhone 14’s entry-level versions may include the most enhancements. There are reports that they will acquire 6 GB of “RAM,” which is 1.5 times greater than the iPhone 13’s existing 4 GB of RAM.
Increasing the quantity of high-speed memory is always beneficial since the system will seldom need to store the state of open, resource-intensive apps or browser tabs to a flash drive. Instead, everything will be stored in the RAM, whose access time is far faster.
In addition, 6 GB of RAM may imply that the basic iPhone models may gain some of the Pro versions’ functions, such as those linked to photographing or processing movies. Regarding the Pro models itself, the RAM may be increased from the present 6 GB to 8 GB.
Apple is still two steps behind rivals in terms of RAM speed.
Permanent remembrance Curious is the information on the emergence of the iPhone 14 model with 2 TB of flash memory. This rumor first did not seem realistic. Typically, it takes many years to double the maximum memory capacity of an iPhone. For instance:
256 GB storage capacity for the iPhone debuted in 2016 with the launching of the iPhone 7;
In 2018, with the launching of the iPhone XS, the first versions with 512 GB of storage were available.
1TB was introduced with the debut of the iPhone 13 Pro last year.
The iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max were the first popular smartphones to offer the option of 1TB of internal storage, and they continue to hold this distinction.
Thus, the average time between doubling the maximum quantity of memory is two to three years. Consequently, it follows logically that there will not be a 2 TB version released this year.
Insiders, though, contend differently. Allegedly, the corporation must “accelerate” the number of gigabytes made accessible to the customer by the aforementioned 48-megapixel camera. It can now capture not just 4K video but also 8K video for the first time. In other words, it’s four times bigger and
occupies an enormous amount of area. Apple intends to provide future iPhones with 2 terabytes of internal storage space for this reason.
