serious now… I know it might sound like “I’m coming hot,” but before you panic, the good news is that Tim Cook & Co are adept at marketing, and Apple has unparalleled brand appreciation, so millions of people will keep buying. .. iPhone 14† But now in the least good news (leaks and rumors) ..†
So let’s take a look at what suggests the iPhone 14 will be more of an “iPhone 13S” model, but also what upgrades could make it a viable option for those using older iPhones. Maybe you’d be better off with the cheaper iPhone 13 or even wait for the iPhone 15?
The iPhone 14 became the first flagship iPhone to reuse an old processor, but Apple is getting away with it
- iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max get an all-new A16 Bionic chip
- iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max use the same A15 Bionic processor found in the iPhone 13 series
This is Big The news, at least that too bad News for those who want the cheapest new iPhone. But! Not for the same reasons you might expect… For starters, the A15 Bionic chip is still the fastest chip on the market, even after several newer releases from Qualcomm and MediaTek since September 2021. So we know the “slow chip” argument isn’t the key to this box.
And this is where I see Apple ready to twist things in its favour. While it hasn’t been confirmed, I expect Cupertino will actually use the iPhone 13 Pro chip for the iPhone 14 and 14 Max instead of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini.
iPhone 14: 15-year-old Steve Jobs’ creativity peaks: Is this a real problem?
Perhaps the logo should have been kept for the last Apple event in September 2022?
Yes and no.
While we’ve never seen a new flagship iPhone with an old chip, the year-round gains in processing power aren’t as significant as you thought. For example, the A15 Bionic chip in the iPhone 13 series is only 7-10% faster than the A14 Bionic chip in the iPhone 12 series, which is the same only 7-10% faster than its predecessor, the A13 Bionic, powering the iPhone. 11.
The biggest differences in the manufacturing process (less is better) come when the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 cycle jumped from 7nm to 5nm, making the iPhone 12 more efficient. However, perhaps due to the lack of global chips, the iPhone 13 had to adhere to the same 5nm process. But things get even more confusing as the iPhone 13 still manages to make significant efficiency gains over its predecessor thanks to larger batteries and ProMotion on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max (the latter breaking all battery life records related to flagship phones).
We’ll know the definitive answer to that question in about five years, when Apple finally stops sending updates to the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14. My informed guess is that Apple will fully equip the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max. With the same number of iOS updates as the iPhone 14 Pro because it comes from the same family of phones, despite the differences in hardware.
- The old SoC on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will still be more powerful than any other (non-Apple) chip and capable enough to deliver smooth performance for the next four to five years.
- The stock of the iPhone (iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max) or the iPhone that most people buy has reached its peak in all respects high performance – This is because Apple is trying to distinguish it from its professional siblings, which is what the company has to sell.
iPhone 14: Same design as before, but the new iPhone 14 Max model to the rescue
Apple offers you a purple surprise from Max!
The other obvious factor that makes the iPhone 14 the iPhone 13S in my opinion is that the new 2022 model is expected to reuse the same old design we’ve seen since the iPhone 12. Yes, unlike its Pro counterparts, the humble iPhone 14 is expected to maintain The Bad reputation Which, while iconic, is slowly fading out… Of course, Apple’s saving grace here is the all-new iPhone 14 Max model. It is expected to start at $900. Although at first glance it makes no sense for this device to replace the iPhone 13 mini and thus put an end to Apple small Small phone attempts.
The iPhone 14 Max will have a larger 6.7-inch screen and a much larger battery than the regular iPhone 14, which is expected to retain its 6.1-inch screen. While the 14 Max isn’t a completely new concept for Apple (they already have a Pro Max iPhone), for those who want Pay less and get more.
Apple recognizes the demand for phones with bigger screens and bigger batteries so you can enjoy content in a more immersive way for longer. Therefore, I have no doubt that customers will respond positively with their dollars. In fact, it wouldn’t be surprising if the iPhone 14 Max became the best-selling iPhone 14 model (especially if the prices of the Pro models went up).
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max get new and old rear camera hardware, but a new 12MP selfie camera
As I’d like to point out, Apple likes to “recycle” its Pro iPhones by adapting them to the new vanilla iPhone, and I don’t expect this year to be any different. When it comes to camera hardware, the iPhone 13 has borrowed the exact same sensors from the iPhone 12 Pro Max of 2020, and it goes without saying that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will borrow the primary and ultra-wide-angle cameras from the iPhone 13 Pro.
That’s right – not the iPhone 13, but the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. In any case, this is good news for those looking for a vanilla iPhone 14 model – this device will enjoy high-quality camera hardware. Sure, the flagship of 2021, but still…The reason Apple may be more generous to its budget-conscious users is that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are getting new 48MP cameras, which will be enough to differentiate the cheaper and more expensive models thanks to features like native 8K video recording and a primary sensor for larger photos. and more detailed in general. Everyone wins. Possible.
The only exception to Apple’s hardware recycling rule is the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max selfie cameras, which are said to be getting a much-needed upgrade to a new 12-megapixel sensor with a wider f/1.9 aperture with autofocus. This helps you and your friends focus when taking photos and videos, and provides better quality in low-light conditions.
In the end, should you buy the iPhone 14… iPhone 13, or… wait for the iPhone 15?
To USB C or not to USB C?
Of course, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max stick to the same old notch, and they’re also expected to use the same A15 Bionic chip as the iPhone 13. And again, the same notch houses the iPhone 14 Pro’s Face ID (keep love or hate it) ), and if we build the iPhone 13 Pro 8-core GPU A15 Bionic chip, it will last you for years.
Plus, the iPhone 13 Pro’s cameras are still great and fit nicely into the $800 iPhone 14. Plus, you get an all-new selfie shooter — just like on the iPhone 14 Pro.
The cheap iPhone battery life is also expected to set new records, thanks to the iPhone 14 Max, and I’m sure millions of iPhone customers will appreciate it and vote with their credit cards.
Buying an iPhone 13 instead of an iPhone 14?
For those who like to buy iPhones on places like eBay, 2022 will be your lucky year because you won’t miss out on much absolute Picking up last year’s iPhone.
Skip the iPhone 14 and wait for the iPhone 15 (with USB-C)?
Oh boy. the biggest. At least in my book.
After decades of “leaks” and rumors, the iPhone 15 is now expected to switch to USB-C thanks to new European legislation (which is not yet complete), which is by far the biggest reason to wait for the 2023 model. But it’s getting better and better…
According to a trusted publication, Ross Young, the iPhone 15 will switch to the new two-hole design (like the iPhone 14 Pro), a new processor (it could be the A16 Bionic from the iPhone 14 Pro), and of course, bring more modifications to be revealed. Leaks and rumors, let’s wait We see the iPhone 14 first, but if the leaks and rumors come true, I know I wouldn’t mind using the iPhone 13 in case I needed an urgent upgrade. If not… iPhone 15 would be a completely different beast. I mean… USB-C?! Come here!
