This year’s high-end iPhone models, the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max, will feature a new design, while the regular models, the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, will retain the design from 2022. Cosmic Ultra Machine (via ShrimpApplePro) has posted rough schematics sent to them by accessory makers, and while they don’t show the entire design, they appear to confirm some of the earlier rumors.
iPhone 14 schematics
To begin with, Apple has discontinued the mini model due to its poor market performance and will replace it with a non-Pro Max model that will sit above the entry-level model.
These images also appear to confirm that the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will have noticeable camera bumps. Because of the rumored new 48MP camera sensor that will replace the 12MP module, the dimensions of the camera bulge appear to have increased.
Although this higher-resolution sensor has the potential to further enhance the iPhone’s reputation as the best camera phone, it will be up to 35% larger than the sensor it replaces, and the height of the 7P lens that will be placed over it may also increase by 5 to 10%.
The iPhone 14 and 14 Max will have smaller camera bumps than the Pro variants, and instead of three cameras, they are expected to have a dual-camera system.
The displays of the phones are not accurately depicted in these images, but there are plenty of leaks to fall back on. The Pro models are said to have pill and hole cutouts instead of a notch, and only these variants are expected to have 120Hz screens from Samsung and LG. The Pros will also be powered by the more advanced A16 Pro chip.
The regular and Max iPhone 14 models are expected to retain the notch, as well as the A15 Bionic chip, though Apple is expected to make a few changes and rebrand it as the A16 Bionic.
The new lineup may also include satellite capabilities and more base RAM than the current lineup.
