iPhone 14

Similar to what we’ve done in the past, we’ve got our hands on fake units of all four iPhone 14 models to see how they compare to what the rumor mills are declaring.

In 2021 We took a look at a few dummy models that were claimed to be from the unannounced iPhone 13 line. As of the end of the year, we discovered that they were close to the mark and included the updated sizes of the camera bump as well as an updated layout.

Based on the same information from the same source, we can anticipate these dummies to be just as accurate.

Sourcing dummy units

The dummy units of the forthcoming iPhones usually surface just a few months before the official announcement. They’re based on trusted designs that are often leaked by manufacturers of cases.

As they prepare for the launch of new iPhones Case makers will bet a huge amount of cash on the new products which are made up of these diagrams. Because of their provenance, these fake units may give information about how the outside of the new iPhones.

They will not provide any insight into the display technology or materials, colors for the finish, or the internal components.

These are some of the designs that we anticipate Apple to unveil

As with similarly to iPhone 12 as well as the iPhone 13 models, Apple is set to unveil 4 models that are brand new iPhone versions for the series 14. The only difference is that there won’t be a mini version.

Instead, we’ll get around 6.1-inch devices as well as two 6.7-inch devices. Two “pro” and two “non-pro.”

Based on its current naming system this means that we can be looking at an 6.1-inch iPhone 14, a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, an 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max. The four models we received are dummy models we were given.

Comparing to iPhone 13 lineup

If we look at with the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 14 mockup, there’s no distinction between the two. In terms of app design the only physical difference is the removal of the smaller model, and its replacement with the larger version.

This is especially disappointing considering that recent rumors have suggested that an A16 Bionic as being an exclusive to pro models. With a lack of external changes and no brand innovation in the silicon used and no new processor, it’s possible that the iPhone 14 could be a rather boring upgrade.

The models for professional cameras appear likely to be bigger versions. For instance, when put next to each other we can see that the camera bump growing in size.

A ruler can be pulled out to reveal that the bump is growing by 35mm to approximately 40mm square. The small increase is intended to accommodate a widely-angle sensor with a higher resolution, as rumored.

This could be an issue with certain MagSafe accessories. MagSafe Duo already hits the camera bump on the iPhone 13 Pro and with an accessory case the official MagSafe Wallet also just touches the edge. A larger size would cause compatibility with both items for the iPhone 14 Pro.

Based on discussions with the manufacturers of case cases They’ve informed us that Apple could move MagSafe’s MagSafe module by shifting it just a bit lower, so that it can remain compatible with the growing quantity of MagSafe accessories available.

Another issue is related to the display. It’s difficult to see using these dummies that aren’t functioning However, they do have a display. iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max come with Apple’s display notch that is used to support the True Depth camera system. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max aren’t.

In the professional models there is an entirely new pill-like cutout inside the display. Under bright lighting the display becomes crystal clear and could be a sign of an important distinction between pros and non-pro models.

Although it isn’t necessarily supported by these fake models, there are rumors that Apple will introduce an always-on screen for its iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. This could be because of the ProMotion display’s capability to go to a lower refresh rate, which is similar to the Apple Watch.

In our first glimpse of iOS 16, Apple introduced widgets that look amazing in an ever-on display.

The 2022 deadline is set for 2022.

In other words, otherwise, it appears that the iPhone 14 Pro models appear to be the same dimensions and shape as the models of the present generation. We’ll keep our eyes open for more rumors about Apple’s forthcoming iPhones.

We’re expecting the iPhone 14 lineup to be released in September and an announcement soon after -however, the supply chain is very shaky, and the situation is still currently in flux. Keep an eye on AppleInsider for further rumors as we get closer to an announcement.
