The new iPhone 14 range should reveal many new features this year. Apple should lift the veil on its smartphones this Wednesday, September 7, during its traditional back-to-school keynote. But already several hypotheses make it possible to glimpse what awaits the fans of the brand.
Between expected aesthetic changes, big news on the photo side and increased prices, the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro have been causing a lot of ink to flow in recent days, as we get closer to the Apple keynote of September 7. . CNEWS takes stock of all the hypotheses put forward by the specialists of the apple brand. As usual, the latter has neither confirmed nor denied the following information.
When will they be available?
For now, no official date has been announced by Apple. However, the iPhone 14 presentation keynote must take place on Wednesday September 7 from 7 p.m. (French time), on the Apple site, but also on the official YouTube channel of the society.
Based on the habits followed by Apple during its presentations, the marketing of its products usually follows a few days later. Most American media agree to advance an availability date for Friday, September 16. However, it is possible that the date may concern part of the iPhone 14 family and not its entirety.
At what prices will they be sold?
Again nothing has filtered at Apple. However, the American site Bloomberg understands that it will face a price increase this year. A price increase which should mainly concern the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models. It would thus be necessary to count 100 additional euros on these models compared to the 2021 editions of the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max.
Thus, the financial expert of the American firm Wedbush, Dan Ives, but also the Apple specialist Ming-Chi Kuo predict an increase of 100 dollars, which could be reflected in Europe in the monetary equivalent of around 100 euros.
Inflation and the shortage of electronic components would be partly responsible, but it would above all be the addition of substantial new features, particularly in terms of photos and screens, which would significantly increase the bill.
Thus, if the price of an iPhone 13 Pro Max was 1,159 euros, that of an iPhone 14 Pro Max could be displayed from 1,259 euros, explains the analyst Dan Ives.
The prices of the iPhone 14 would remain the same, namely around 910 euros for a starting price.
What models will be offered?
As for the range offered around the iPhone 14 family, this 2022 vintage would skip the mini model. The iPhone 12 mini would have been a commercial failure, and the 13 mini models would not have carried sales either. Apple would nevertheless still focus on four devices: a normal iPhone 14, an iPhone 14 “Max”, a little larger and therefore new in this range, but also an iPhone 14 Pro and finally an iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Towards a new notch?
According to rumors put forward in particular by the specialized site 9to5mac, the iPhone 14 Pro would be affected by an expected aesthetic evolution: the end of the famous notch introduced since the iPhone X, launched in 2017 (already!). Apple would have opted for a screen where the selfie camera and Face ID would be integrated into one or two punches. A technology already widely used by the competition for four years. The classic notch, however, would remain the signature of the 14 and 14 Max models.
In addition, the 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max models would also benefit from a titanium shell, which is lighter than the steel used so far. Finally, still in terms of design, Apple could offer iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models that are slightly thicker and heavier, but also slightly less wide.
Innovation on the photo side?
The appearance of the photo blocks of the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro models should not change. However, the on-board technology will be reviewed, as every year. And as such, the 14 Pro models would inherit for the first time a large 48 Mpixel sensor, against 16 Mpixels previously. If this point is not of great importance – except for making large format prints – it is mainly the size of the sensor that should make the difference for better quality photos. Note that the ultra wide angle sensor could also benefit from a major update to allow it to compete with the main lens.
Finally, it will also be necessary to rely on a new A16 Bionic chip which should be among the most powerful on the market, but also in particular to support the rendering of photos thanks to image processing.
