news hardware Apple: the three controversies that the iPhone 14 will face if the smartphone is really what we expect
With Apple’s Keynote approaching, speculation abounds about upcoming iPhone models. This year, the firm promises no less than 4 iPhone 14s and the least we can say is that they have already begun to make waves.
iPhone 14: two standard models and two Pro models
For a few years and the launch of the iPhone, Apple should re-introduce several iPhone models during its September 7 Keynote – according to inside information. This year we should be entitled to 4 models: iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. As you can see, the Cupertino company has not chosen to continue with its low cost series by offering an iPhone 14 mini.
We will therefore have the right, logically, to two “standard” models and two “Pro” models.. And it is precisely in the Pro Max version where the biggest changes will take place, and the least we can say is that they are likely to cause a lot of ink when the iPhone launches. Thus, brand lovers and critics alike will surely find themselves pleading their cause, especially if all the leaks turn out to be real. We can even give you the 3 points that will give you the most to talk about: the screen, the processor and the price.
Screen without notch, but not for all models
If the quality of the screen should be identical on all models in the range, the notch of the front camera should differ depending on the version of the smartphone. If Apple had chosen to reduce this famous notch on the iPhone 13, it would have to reduce the 14 of the name even more, to the point of only seeing two small dots at the top of the screen. But as we explained to you, this novelty may not appear on all models. In fact, the “non-Pro” versions should not be equipped with this novelty and would therefore maintain the measurements of the iPhone 13.
Will the A15 chip still be at the level this year?
The A15 Bionic chip was the engine behind the iPhone 13and we have been able to see it during this year, it’s a very good processor that has really raised the bar compared to its predecessor. According to rumors, the latter seems to be working so well that Apple could reintroduce it to the “non-Pro” iPhone 14s.
A few months ago the first rumors about this difference in processor between the same generation of iPhone had emerged, something that was later confirmed by other sources. So we should end up with a new A16 chip in the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.
At the moment we still do not know what improvements this new chip has in store for us. Without getting into another debate, it is legitimate when we see this to wonder if it is necessary to change a processor so frequently in a range of smartphones. One thing is certain, the price factor (we’ll get to this a bit lower) is likely to make a lot of noise, as whether or not Apple keeps the price of the iPhone 14 down, the firm will be exposed to heavy criticism. .
over and over the price
The war in Ukraine, inflation, the semiconductor crisis that continues to affect many factories, the obstacles encountered in the distribution circuits… The list of reasons to raise the price of the iPhone 14 could be very long. The latest rumors say that Apple has already ordered the manufacture of 90 million units of its next iPhone. All this in order to launch the devices on the market earlier and thus reduce the negative impact that is expected at the cash level. However, it is not yet clear whether its price will increase or not.
As leaks about model features and new features come in droves, Apple always finds a way to keep the price list of its iPhones secret until they are presented. At JV Tech, we don’t have a crystal ball to see what Apple has in store for us in terms of pricing. Will they go up? Will they go down? Will only two models go up in price? The only thing we know for sure is that it will be a controversial factor no matter what. Many people also fear that the iPhone 14 Pro Max will fetch staggering sums. The answer on September 7, if the insiders were right.
