iPhone 14 pro: punch hole over half a centimeter – New images of the punch hole of the upcoming iPhone 14 pro models have appeared on social networks. There is now also size information there to be able to classify the opening and obviously Apple has not made the openings for the lenses smaller, but only moved them slightly down from the notch into the display. Overall, the smaller opening has a diameter of 5.631 millimeters and the opening next to it appears to be just as high. The iPhone 14 pro models will therefore have comparatively large sections for the technology in the display.
Many users thought it was a hoax for a long time, but there are other new clues confirming that Apple will switch to the new hole-in-the-display design for at least the iPhone 14 Pro series this year. However, the design of the Samsung models is not simply copied, but rather a double opening: the iPhone 14 pro and pro max will probably have a round opening and an elongated pill-shaped opening in the display. What exactly is behind it is still open. The normal iPhone 14 will probably continue to use the notch design.
From the coming year (i.e. from the iPhone 15 models) the new design should then be available for all iPhone models. The iPhone 15 series will therefore rely entirely on the double punch holes and the notch will disappear completely.
Apple will probably give the iPhone 14 pro models more RAM in the coming year. It should then be up to 8GB of RAM, but only in the more expensive iPhones and not in the normal series.
According to a post by account yeux1122 on Korean blog Naver, the iPhone 14 Pro will pack 8GB of RAM. Citing supply chain sources, the post claims that the iPhone 14 Pro’s memory components have now been confirmed, adding that the mass production schedule appears to be accelerating.
The account previously said Apple plans to launch a new iPad mini model in the second half of 2021 with an 8.7-inch display and a body that’s wider compared to the fifth-generation iPad mini and is smaller The sizing was inaccurate, since the sixth generation “iPad mini” actually had an 8.3-inch display, the rumor about the case and the time frame for the launch proved to be correct.
This has not yet been confirmed, but the supply chains are often a very good source for the upcoming technology.
A new concept for the iPhone 14 models has appeared on Twitter, which is now also attracting attention in some media. It shows a radical new design of the camera module and is announced as a supposed new look for the iPhone 14 models. In fact, it’s somewhat reminiscent of the horizontal camera band on the Pixel 6 models.
In fact, there is no indication so far that Apple is planning such a completely new design of the camera area for the iPhone 14. The previous leaks also assumed that the square camera area would be retained and that Apple would use new design elements, especially on the front. At the moment one should therefore assume that this is really just a concept and that the pictures have little to do with the actual upcoming iPhone 14 models.
Samsung has left out the camera area on the Galaxy S22 ultra and instead only uses a design with individual lenses for the main camera. Designer Konstantin Milenin has also transferred this concept to the iPhone models and shows what the camera area could look like if the large camera module is left out. There are no indications that Apple will actually go this route, but the concept at least shows that there is an alternative to a clear module and that the area could also be left out, at least for design reasons.
Does Apple actually rely on the design of the Samsung S series for the iPhone 14 models? Meanwhile, Bloomberg analyst Marc Gurman also assumes this and confirms a push-hole display with an opening for the front camera at least for some iPhone 14 models.
Gurman said that at least some iPhone 14 models launching later this year will feature a hole-punch display design, as we’ve heard from other sources like analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. A hole-punch design refers to a display with only a small circular cutout for the front camera, as seen on some Samsung smartphones. This design would involve removing the notch and likely moving the Face ID system under the display.
What is exciting in this case is the restriction to “some” iPhone 14 smartphones. This leaves room for Pro devices without a punch-hole display, for example.
LTPO display had already been suspected for the iPhone 13 series, now the iPhone 14 models should be ready and at least the Pro models should be equipped with displays with 120Hz and LTPO technology. However, there is still a lack of concrete information from Apple’s supply chain, so this report should be viewed with some distance.
A new report claims that the Cupertino-based tech giant will launch four new phones in 2022, some of which will feature a 120Hz LTPO display. The information comes just days after LG announced it is producing the 120Hz LTPO display panels and won a large order from Apple for the screens. Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide (LTPO) displays are a special type of backplane technology developed for OLED screens.
Before the launch of the iPhone 13, analysts believed that Apple was ready to launch phones with LTPO. Rumors circulated that Apple was sourcing the displays from Samsung. Of course, these never became reality.
Apple actually developed the technology and has been using it in the Apple Watch since the Series 4 models. The backplane is critical in allowing the Apple Watch Series 5 and later to offer an always-on display solution without sacrificing battery life. Since its inception, LTPO has found its way into flagship smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S21 and OnePlus 9 Pro. These handsets take advantage of the low power consumption of LTPO to deliver 120Hz refresh rates. Without LTPO, Android devices with such fast refresh rates would drain their batteries amazingly quickly.
In general, however, Apple has to do better in the area of displays, because some Android manufacturers already have significantly better technology at the start. Therefore, it would not be unlikely if Apple would take the step towards LTPO displays in the coming year.
This week there were new details from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. He now assumes that Apple will continue to rely on a camera system with 3 lenses, but that the main lens should have a resolution of 48MP. The iPhone 14 models would then also support 8K video recordings and of course generally offer better quality videos and pictures. There should also be more RAM – the iPhone 14 series probably uses 8GB RAM and can therefore process the high data rates of the camera without any problems.
UPDATE: MacRumors has more details, but rather bad news. The periscope technology for the lenses will probably not be available until next year. The iPhone 15 models should come onto the market with this technology at the earliest:
Moving on, Kuo reiterated his belief that in 2023 at least one iPhone 15 model will get a periscope lens, paving the way for a much-improved optical zoom. This lens would have folded camera optics, bending or “folding” the light absorbed by the image sensor, allowing for increased optical zoom while maintaining a compact design for smartphones.
Exciting: When it comes to memory, the cheaper iPhone 14 models should start at 64GB. That would be more of a step backwards, because this year 128GB was the minimum memory. Here Apple must look at the prices and ensure that the devices remain affordable, hence the smaller memory version, which is of course cheaper.
Not much is known about the upcoming iPhone 14 series, but designers around the world are thinking about the new models. iPhone 14 – why not an Iron Man Edition? Konstantin Milenin just designed an Iron Man Edition for Apple – in the classic color scheme of the Marvel hero. However, the concept should have little chance of being implemented, but it still looks interesting.
There are further indications that Apple will say goodbye to the notch design of the display in the iPhone 14 series in 2022. At least the Pro models should have a punch-hole design with an opening for the camera in the middle. This eliminates the notch. This design is known, for example, from the current Galaxy S22 models and up to now
no one could really believe that Apple would adopt this shape. Now this seems to be confirmed more and more.
According to Korean website The Elec, the high-end iPhone 14 Pro models launching in 2022 are expected to feature a hole-punch display. The 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max are expected to feature the updated display that will eliminate the notch used in current iPhone models.
The punch cutout allows Apple to provide a larger display area while still leaving room for the front-facing camera, and it’s a design that Android devices have been using for a number of years. If Apple moves to this design, the Face ID hardware will have to be moved under the display.
The normal iPhone models should probably continue to use a notch display. In 2022, it will therefore be possible to distinguish between the iPhone 14 models on the display.
Apple is currently working on equipping its own devices with its own modems in order to be able to optimize the cooperation between software and hardware in the area of data connections. However, TSMC will probably not deliver the first modems for the company until 2023, which were developed according to Apple’s specifications. This also means that the Qualcomm models will still be installed in the iPhone 14 series in the coming year. Only with the iPhone 15 will Apple’s own technology also be available for the modems.
It will still be some time before there is reliable information about the new iPhone 14 series, so designers can still let off steam quite freely when it comes to ideas. Apple Tomorrow has rendered a model that no longer has a camera module and the lenses no longer protrude from the housing. That whets the appetite for more, but whether the models will really be able to do without a camera area in the coming year is rather questionable.
Apple introduced the notch with the iPhone X and made it smaller this year. In the next year it could be completely gone, because some leakers assume that Apple will rely on a punch-hole design. Instead of a recess, there is a hole in the display. However, this is not entirely certain, there is still a dispute among experts as to whether Apple will really go this route, because the iPhone 14 in 2022 would look quite similar to the Android models.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has reported that Apple will adopt a hole-punch design for at least the high-end 2022 iPhone models, similar to some flagship Android smartphones. Following Kuo’s report, Apple leaker Jon Prosser shared renderings of what he claims to be the “iPhone 14’s” design.Macrumors says
Even if the iPhone 14 introduces a hole-punch design, Apple will have a hard time ditching the notch altogether, according to a now-deleted post on Weibo by @PandaIsBald. The account, which accurately predicted the ninth-gen iPad would be announced at Apple’s September event, claimed that it’s “unlikely” Apple will completely replace the notch with a punch cutout, and instead use the “iPhone 14” possibly going on to have a notch but with a smaller footprint.
Most fans will probably expect Apple to finally go for an under-display camera. ZTE and Samsung have already presented corresponding models – so Apple already has pioneers here that can be used as a guide.
iPhone 14 should get up to 2 terabytes of storage
Apple has already given the iPhone 13 series a significant memory upgrade this year and currently offers up to 1 TB of internal memory (for a hefty surcharge, of course). The first indications are that the memory will be upgraded again in the coming year, and the smartphones will supposedly then be equipped with up to 2 terabytes of memory.
At MacRumors they write:
With the “iPhone 14” next year, Apple plans to make its Pro iPhones even more “Pro” by offering a 2TB option, according to a sketchy rumor from Chinese site MyDrivers. The rumor, which should be viewed with considerable skepticism, says that Apple will bring QLC flash storage to the iPhone next year and, thanks to the newer storage technology, will increase the capacity to 2 TB.
A report from DigiTimes earlier this week was the first to suggest that Apple would introduce new storage technologies for next year’s “iPhone,” but that report didn’t specifically mention a 2TB option.
iPhone generation will still take almost a year, so you shouldn’t rely on these details completely.
In the last few days there have been a number of leaks about the upcoming iPhone 14 models. The technical data in particular are still rather speculative, but at least it seems to be confirmed that Apple is not planning any more iPhone Mini models next year. The smallest model will then become the regular iPhone 14 and it will be complemented by an iPhone 14 max. The background is the rather poor sales figures for the mini models – Apple probably sees no real interest among customers here.
The expected specifications according to Ross Young
Jon Prosser has published a series of renders of the new models. How close these will be to the original remains to be seen.
Apple is also using screens with 120Hz technology this year, but with the iPhone 13 models only the more expensive Pro versions will probably be equipped with this technology. The normal devices probably do not yet get this technology called Apple ProMotion.
In the next year, however, the company will probably be able to offer this technology for all devices, because suppliers will be converting their production chains to the 120HZ display in the future. Then the normal iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 max (if the devices are called that) can also come onto the market with this technology.
For the iPhones 2022, Apple is changing the structure of its mobile phone offering. Unlike the iPhone 12 and the upcoming iPhone 13, which have a 5.4-inch, two 6.1-inch and one 6.7-inch models, the tentative iPhone 14 series will come out in the year 2022 models consist of two 6.1-inch and two 6.7-inch models.
With that new lineup, a new report from The Elec offers some color on the state of Apple’s display suppliers over the next year. The report states that LG, which currently only makes LTPS displays for Apple’s low-end iPhones, will be converting its production lines to supply Apple with displays with a 120Hz refresh rate.
If true, both of Apple’s main display suppliers, Samsung and LG, can offer LTPO OLED displays, giving Apple the opportunity to integrate ProMotion technology across its entire iPhone 14 lineup.
A look at the production chains is of course always subject to some uncertainty, because there is still more than a year to go until the launch of the iPhone 2022 series and a lot can change by then. Nevertheless, it would be a good step for Apple to roll out this technology for all upcoming iPhone models – the competition is doing the same after all.
