iPhone 14 Specifications, Features, Expected Price, and Everything We Know So Far
The Apple iPhone 14 is expected to retain the same design, as well as the notch, but the cameras may improve this year.
The Apple iPhone 14 launch is still a few months away, but rumours and multiple leaks have revealed everything we need to know about this year's iPhones. We discovered leaked renders that revealed the design of the iPhone 14 series. We also know that Apple will most likely discontinue the Mini series. Higher megapixel sensors are expected to improve the company's camera prowess.
Even after all of this, we still want more Apple information about the new iPhones that will be launched in 2022. So we've decided to compile everything we know about the new iPhone 14 smartphone, including how much it's likely to cost the buyer and what it offers.
iPhone 14 Expected Price in India
This year, the iPhone 14 is likely to be the series' entry-level model. Last year, the iPhone 13 was launched in India for Rs 79,900 for the base 128GB variant. And, based on these trends and the prospect of the iPhone 14 being the entry-level model in 2022, we anticipate the iPhone 14 to be priced around Rs 70,000 for Indian buyers. Similarly, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are expected to cost more than Rs 1 lakh and Rs 1.10 lakh, respectively, in India.
iPhone 14 Expected Sale Date
In recent years, Apple has begun to regard India as an important market. As a result, the sale of the new iPhone in India is included in the first group of countries. And we expect that to continue this year, with the iPhone 14 going on sale in the last week of September or early October.
iPhone 14 Expected Specifications and Features
Here are the expected specifications and features of the iPhone 14 when it is released later this year.
Design Borrowed From iPhone 13
The iPhone 14 is unlikely to see major design changes this year, with most leaks indicating that the new iPhone will retain the design language of last year's iPhone 13. As a result, the iPhone is likely to have sharp edges, the same camera bump, and a diagonal camera layout.
The phone's volume controls may be on the left and the power button on the right. The lightning port should be located at the bottom, between the audio speakers. The one significant difference could be Apple's decision to use titanium to construct the chassis of the iPhone 14 series, which is stronger and keeps the body scratch-resistant.
iPhone 14 Keeps The Notch
Most of us expected the iPhone 14 series to ditch the notch in favour of a smaller cut out to provide more screen space. According to reports, Apple will keep the good parts for the iPhone 14 Pro models, while the standard iPhone 14 will keep the wide notch and the same screen layout. This notch will house the iPhone 14's Face ID sensor as well as the front camera, as we've seen since the iPhone X a few years ago.
A-Series Chipset To Boost Performance
The iPhone 14 should ideally be powered by the new A16 Bionic processor, but reports from various sources indicate that Apple has been forced to rely on both the old and the new for its iPhones this year. The standard iPhone 14 model is expected to retain last year's A15 Bionic chipset, which isn't bad but isn't a significant upgrade in terms of hardware. The new A16 Bionic processor could be exclusive to the iPhone Pro models, which would help Apple justify the higher price tag of the iPhone Pros.
iOS 16 Brings More Capabilities
iOS 16 will be unveiled on June 6 at Apple's WWDC 2022, and the new version will power the new iPhones. With iOS getting a slew of new features, the iPhone 14 may benefit from the software updates.
New And Improved Cameras
The camera on the iPhone 14 may receive the majority of the improvements. According to media reports, the new ultrawide camera will improve photo quality. Some leaks have even suggested that the iPhone 14 series could have a 48-megapixel primary rear camera, but this is unlikely for the standard iPhone 14 variant. In any case, iPhones are due for some upgrades, and cameras should be the top priority.
Other Expected Specifications and Features
The iPhone 14 should keep its 6.1-inch OLED Retina display, and we don't expect many changes there. Apple is expected to release the iPhone 14 with 6GB of RAM, which should be sufficient for high-performance levels. The biggest unknown about the iPhone 14 revolves around the battery unit and the charging speeds that Apple may offer this year. The minor design change could indicate a larger battery under the hood, and we are hoping that Apple will offer at least 30W fast charging support, if not more.
Apple is expected to throw everything but the kitchen sink at the Pro models once more, with features like the ProMotion display (120Hz refresh rate support), the new pill-hole notch, and even the Always-On-Display option reserved for premium iPhone models. The cameras will also be greatly improved, giving Apple every reason to charge the premium for the Pro versions.
