Apple iPhone 14: Latest Rumors, Leaks and Release 2022

If Apple follows their tradition, there’s a good chance we’ll get the Apple iPhone 14 in September, which will only be a few months away. However, when the buzz kicks in, there are already a lot of floating rumors and speculation on the internet about the upcoming model.

For the users who are genuinely interested and excited about the upcoming iPhone, there are quite a few changes in the design and specifications for the users to look forward to.

The biggest difference is in the available sizes. Users may not get the smaller 5.4-inch mini version of the iPhone 14 because previous launches have been unsuccessful with the public. Instead, Apple is focusing on launching the larger flagship variants with the 6.1″ iPhone 14, 6.1″ iPhone 14 Pro and 6.7″ iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Also, users may not witness significant changes to the design and overall appearance of the model. However, there are chances that the upcoming iPhone 14 could come with a few different color options, including a purple shade.

Another big design change is the rumor that the iPhone 14 will come with a titanium frame instead of the stainless steel one. Does that affect the price? We wouldn’t know for sure unless there’s an official report.

Following are some of the latest iPhone 14 leaks and rumors that are worth investigating.

No Notch and New Face ID

Rumor has it that Apple is going to remove the notch in the iPhone 14 Pro models. This will include a more seamless design element, but it’s not a confirmed development yet. However, shedding light on this rumor, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple will most likely step it up a notch and replace it with the perforation design.

Rumor has it that Apple is also working on a design that will accommodate both the pill-shaped cutout and the circular cutout. The combination of these will streamline the Face ID functionalities in the model.

As for the hardware, Apple is rumored to place the Face ID hardware directly below the display. Rumor has it that the Pro version of the iPhone 14 will also have a different front camera.

ProMotion display

If there’s one rumor about the upcoming iPhone 14 that has shocked the public, it’s the integration of the ProMotion display with refresh rates up to 120Hz.

However, very recent reports suggest that Apple is very unlikely to integrate this technology, which has left people in a state of disappointment. However, the “Always-on” display technology is likely to come with the iPhone 14 models.

The upcoming iPhone 14 will most likely feature the staple LTPS OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, but without the ProMotion technology.

Design and build

As we said before, Apple probably won’t be making many changes to the design of the upcoming iPhone 14. It will likely include the main design of the iPhone 13.

However, some rumors suggest that the upcoming model will likely have a thicker chassis with no camera bump on the back. The volume rockers will also have a more rounded design.

But one thing that’s pretty much confirmed is the absence of iPhone 14 mini at the next launch. So users will have to adapt to the flagship models. Three different size variants will be available.

Color variants

Despite letting go of the iPhone 14 mini, Apple is all set to expand its color options in the iPhone choices.

It is rumored that in addition to the basic colors of the iPhone, there will be a new addition with the purple color with a very unique finish that shifts the hue when under the light.

So all in all, the iPhone 14 will likely be available in black, white, blue, red, and purple for the iPhone 14 and 14 Max, while the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will come in graphite, gold, silver, and purple.

Titanium chassis

Another worthy iPhone 14 rumor worth mentioning is the inclusion of a titanium chassis instead of standard stainless steel.

This won’t be the first product with the titanium material, as the Apple Watch ships the same. However, this will be the first time titanium has been used for an iPhone. If the rumors are true, the iPhone will be a lot more resilient and durable.

In addition, there are rumors that Apple is ready to remove the lightning port in the upcoming iPhone as well, giving it a portless design.
