Before iPhone 14 presentations less than two months left. Although Apple has not yet officially announced the date for the event, there is no doubt that it will take place before the end of September, as has happened in past years. However, we already know about almost all the changes that await the lineup. Frankly, we’ve learned quite a lot about Apple’s plans in the months leading up to the official launch. But this year, the changes are especially large-scale, which means that it’s not a sin to collect them all once again in one place.
iPhone 14 Max – what is known
Appearance in the line new iPhone model It’s always a holiday. Apple has long ceased to be afraid to expand the lineup, so today such decisions do not cause the former enthusiasm. However, it is always interesting to see what Cupertino has decided to offer us this time around.
This year, we are waiting for the company’s natural refusal from the compact iPhone in favor of a larger one. They will become iPhone 14 Max, also known as the iPhone 14 Plus. The novelty will receive a 6.7-inch display like the top flagship, but from a hardware point of view it will be a complete copy of the regular iPhone 14.
Specifications iPhone 14 Max:
- Display – 6.7″, 60Hz
- Processor – A15 Bionic
- Memory – 6/128, 6/256, 6/512 GB
- Camera – 12/12 MP
- Battery – 4325 mAh
By appearance iPhone 14 Max (Plus) will be identical to the iPhone 14, which in turn will be an almost complete copy of the iPhone 13. However, this is unlikely to turn off users who wanted to buy a relatively inexpensive iPhone with a large screen. After all, it will cost significantly less than the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Price iPhone 14 Max will be around $900 instead of $1200.
iPhone 14 Pro design
iPhone design has always been something static. Apple has never been particularly in a hurry to change it, just to please the consumer. Therefore, the company could exploit the same appearance for its smartphones for several years. However, this year Cupertino decided to go even further than they could afford before.
Now, instead of changing the design of the entire line, Apple will do it only partially. The new look will only get older iPhone models: iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. They are waiting for a redesign of the front panel, from which the “visor” that has bothered everyone will now disappear, and it will be replaced by a double island-type cutout.
changing design only older models, Apple, as it were, emphasizes their superiority over younger ones. Because earlier the differences between them, judging as a whole, were not so noticeable, and it was possible to distinguish them from each other only by the design of the cameras, which older iPhone there has always been more.
Now it was decided to mark the differences between the models more clearly. In this way, Cupertino hopes to reduce costs for the cost of junior models and at the same time start earning more from older models, which will attract more consumers, if only due to their appearance.
iPhone 14 processor
Another way to save on juniors new generation iPhones – This is the installation of the old processor. If rumors are to be believed, this year is the first time that Apple has taken such a step. She plans to equip the iPhone 14 and 14 Max (Plus) with a chipset A15 Bionicwhich debuted last year as part of the iPhone 13.
We have already analyzed in detail the reasons for such a downgrade in this article – be sure to read it, there are a lot of interesting things. But, in a nutshell, Apple itself led itself into a trap, every year improving the hardware of its smartphones and increasing their cost.
As a result, when components became very expensive, they could no longer do this, and were forced to make a difficult choice: increase the price of the iPhone or make them technically simpler so as not to increase their own production costs. The company chose the first option.
Boost Apple price could not, because she risked losing because of this in sales of junior iPhone versions. Moreover, against the background of the older ones that have risen in price, they will obviously look very, very profitable. And since there is no fundamental difference between the processors of two different generations, then users will not lose much either.
iPhone 14 camera
More reluctant than design, Apple only updates cameras of their smartphones. No, she upgrades their software every year, but the modules themselves are rarely changed. This year, the company decided to finally upgrade its photography capabilities. new iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Maxby equipping them with new cameras.
These are expected to be 48MP sensors periscope type. Unlike the previous ones, the new camera will be located inside the smartphone not horizontally behind the lens, but vertically. Due to this, it will be possible to increase the number of lenses in the system without increasing the thickness of the structure itself.
Almost certainly iPhone will continue to shoot at a resolution of 12 megapixels, so that the finished photos do not weigh too much, and additional megapixels will be used to increase clarity. However, if desired, users will probably be given the opportunity to turn on the 48 megapixel mode.
In addition, new items are also waiting for an updated front camera. It is not yet specified what resolution it will have, but, according to industry experts, the main thing is that the front camera will receive an autofocus function, and its aperture will increase to f / 1.9, due to which the pictures will be even better.
