The iPhone 13 series is barely in stores, but that isn’t stopping a growing chorus of leaks surrounding next year’s model. As 9to5Mac notes, Bloomberg’s historically accurate Mark Gurman claimed the iPhone 14 will represent a “complete redesign” — the first since the iPhone X arrived in 2017. He said that the iPhone 13’s relatively modest update was a sign of bigger things to come. Gurman was hesitant to give details about the new hardware, but there are rumors that might help us to guess.
Ming-Chi Kuo, an often accurate analyst, claimed that Apple would eliminate the display notch in 2022. This was based on an iPhone 14 Pro, which would have a hole-punch camera, like many Android phones. Jon Prosser, a YouTuber, claimed that renders were also based on real-world photos. The new model is said to look like a larger iPhone 4 with a titanium outer ring and flush rear cameras. It also has a thicker chassis.
Rumours suggest that Apple may drop the mini iPhone from its lineup and replace it with a larger,’regular model’ along with the Pro offerings. Although there have been rumors of Touch ID under-display, it is not clear if this will be available for 2022.
We would caution against taking these reports seriously. The next iPhone is about a year away, no matter how accurate these reports may be. Apple may make significant changes before it makes the design official. The common theme of the leaks suggests that the iPhone 14 could see a significant redesign.
