Apple releases a new lineup of iPhones every year that appeals to both average users and enthusiasts. And this year will be no exception. Apple will once again host a high-profile event in September where it will unveil a new iPhone, this time the iPhone 14.
Despite the fact that certain aspects of the new iPhone 14 series will remain under wraps until its official release, several leaks have given us a glimpse of what to expect. Continue reading for an overview of what we know so far about the exciting features of the newest iPhone 14 series.
According to a number of rumors and leaks, Apple is planning to launch four new iPhone models in 2022, the same number as it did in 2021, with the exception of the 5.4-inch mini model, which is expected to be replaced by a 6.7-inch ‘Max’ model.
Alongside the standard iPhone 14 (6.1 inches) and iPhone 14 Max (6.7 inches), you can anticipate seeing two new ‘Pro’ iPhone models with display sizes of 6.7 inches and 6.1 inches. This means that you can expect to see these models alongside the standard iPhone 14.

What does the iPhone 14 look like?
The design of the iPhone 14 will, for the most part, be quite similar to that of its processor. In light of this, it is reasonable to anticipate that the most expensive ‘Pro’ models will feature a pill-shaped hole-punch design for their front-facing cameras, whereas the standard iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Max will continue to use the same Face ID notch.
It is becoming increasingly apparent that Apple may be considering using a smaller hole-punch camera as a design differentiator between the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro lineup and the standard iPhone 14 models in order to differentiate between the two.
How many cameras does Apple’s newest iPhone 14 have?
It would appear that Apple is using the same camera stack on the iPhone 14 series as it did on the iPhone 13 from the previous year. This indicates that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will continue to have two rear cameras, while the more expensive Pro models will have three rear cameras as well as a LiDAR sensor.
However, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman claims that only the Pro models will get the 48-megapixel camera and that the regular iPhone models will have the main sensor that only records 12 megapixels. The iPhone 14 series will continue Apple’s practice of reserving significant camera hardware updates for its Pro models.
This practice will continue with the iPhone 14. In connection with the front camera, all versions of the iPhone 14 will include a large camera for taking selfies.
What are the iPhone 14’s specifications?
Only the Pro models will have Apple’s new A16 chip for the first time, while the regular variants will have either the A15 (the same chip that powers the iPhone 13) or a variant of it. Even with the A15 chip, the iPhone 14 will be a formidable device.
We anticipate that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will offer storage capacities of 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The Pro models will begin with 128GB of storage, with 256GB and 512GB storage options also available. All iPhone 14 models are likely to receive a significant battery upgrade.
What is the price of the iPhone 14?
There are numerous rumors that the price of the iPhone 14 will increase due to rising inflation and manufacturing costs. Apple, despite being a cash-rich company, reportedly feels pressure to pass on the additional cost to consumers. We expect the iPhone 1 to begin at $899 (approximately Rs 71,775) and the iPhone 14 Max to cost $999. (Or approx. Rs 79,665).
The iPhone 14 Pro base model will cost $1099 (approximately Rs 87,640), while the iPhone 14 Pro Max could begin at $1199. (Or approx. Rs 95,706). Notably, these prices exclude local taxes, so the retail price of the iPhone 14 series may be significantly higher.
What would not happen?
The iPhone 14 series will undoubtedly be faster and more advanced than previous models. However, not every rumored feature will be included in the iPhone 14 and will instead be reserved for the 2023 model. For example, we do not anticipate that the iPhone 14 will feature an in-display fingerprint reader or a USB-C port in place of the Lightning port.
