iPhone 14 leaks have started to snowball as their release nears, and now we have our best look yet at what the full range will look like.
Apple spy Sonny Dickson has been behind the new rumor for a long time, releasing hands-on videos with the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models. And it shows the big external changes coming to the range.
Let’s break them.
Perhaps the most confusing part of the iPhone 14 lineup is that Apple decided not only to remove the notch, but to replace it with an i-shaped design exclusive to the Pro models. This has caused some iPhone fans to declare the design as a setback, but it seems that Apple is committed to it with the change coming in 2023.
It’s a dramatic visual change and the biggest change in iPhone design since the iPhone X was introduced in 2017.
2. The size of the cameras
The second head-turner to change the volume is the size of the new rear cameras of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. Apple has been hot to upgrade the Pro models to a 48MP primary sensor that is 35% larger than the 12MP unit on all iPhone 13 models and Dickson’s video shows the amazing results this creates on the new camera bump. Lined up with the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max (which stick with a 12MP sensor) they’re huge.
Could this be the first year where there is a dramatic difference in image quality between the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models?
3. iPhone 14 Max-ed
Finally, we come to the new member of the range: the iPhone 14 Max, which replaces the 5.4-inch iPhone 13 Mini. Dickson’s dummy units show it is indeed a large device that is as big as the iPhone 14 Pro Max and both feature a 6.7-inch display.
Larger screens are becoming more and more popular and I think this alone will make the iPhone 14 Max a hit, but it means fans of smaller phones are now forced to step up to the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 / iPhone 14 Pro which is more less wires inside. camp They will also pay more since the iPhone 13 Mini is the entry-level option, while the iPhone 14 Max will sit above the iPhone 14.
Throw in the claim that iPhones will switch to USB-C in 2023 (port changes usually have a big impact on the second-hand value of old models) and customers are faced with a bigger decision than al and not much time to think. about him.
